Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We really loved our holiday in this apartment. Coming in September ensured a quiet relaxing holiday. The apartment was so clean it sparkled and had everything we could have needed. The park is away from the main town so our hire car was used a great deal. Being on top of the hill meant the views of the town, mountains and sea were spectacular. We spent a good deal of time at Lido Da Pietro at the beach which was perfect for us and we met some really lovely people. Brushing up on my Italian as we speak - we can't wait for our next visit. There are mosquito nets in the door frames. Only found them on our last night sadly, but they work a treat!
