"We spent 3 wonderful days in the penthouse apartment facing the water. The apartment is beautiful and very well equipped with a very functional kitchen and includes a washer and dryer. The deck and gas grill were bonuses. Sunsets and sunrises were spectacular. We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and the indoor jacuzzi bath tub."

Washing and drying machine, all you need for normal cooking is available. Close to beach, close to shops, close to wharf, close to all. No noise, Nice view on sea, Impossible to find something negative. A great place."
