*** Please note that I am generally very flexible with check in & check out times but if I have guests leaving and arriving on the same day, check out may have to by by noon and check in after 2pm. Drop me a line if you need to arrive earlier or leave later, generally it's not a problem ***
The bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable double bed and there is a single sofa in the box window with a lovely view. It's a really quiet room, perfect to chill out in and get a great night's sleep! The room is particularly beautiful in the evenings as the sun sets behind a nearby mountain.
While here, make yourself at home! You have full use of the apartment, including the kitchen which is well equipped, the living room which has huge comfortable sofas. There is cable TV, a large selection of DVDs, books, magazines, chess board, it's perfect for relaxing.
