We arived later then aspected but the direction was waiting for us. The bedrooms are situated on the second floor. When you want to go from the biggest room to the bathroom you have to enter the other room. A little privicy.

Accommodation was very good with all mod cons. Centrally located with easy walking access to beach, shops, bars and restaurants. There was a reserved car parking space available for a small fee. The host spoke English and was both friendly and accommodating.
