Ottima posizione, e bel giardino!!!
Superato qualche piccolo disguido iniziale tutto perfetto!
Abbiamo passato una buona settimana ( nonostante il tempo), la descrizione della casa è fedele. Molto tranquillo il posto e altrettanto godibile il giardino ed il BBQ. L'umidità della camera sottostante è risolvibile con il deumidificatore in dotazione.Bagno con una doccia spaziosa e pavimentata, manca il bidet Fedeli le distanze dal mare e dai negozi. Buona disponibilità del sig Leonardo.
The Accomodation was very nice and cosy. it had a nice garden and we could use the barbeque to grill. the table outside was nice for dinners and breakfast. the bedroom was a bit moist, maybe because it was underground, but it was cool so thats a plus. the de marcos where great hosts and were fast with helping and informing. we sadly did not meet michela but we met her dad leonardo and her brother. the bicycles are very practical.
Ho trascorso un weekend molto piacevole,
l'appartamento è situato in una zona tranquilla, lontana dal traffico, i proprietari sono molto disponibili e cortesi!
Per soggiornare non manca nulla, l'angolo cottura è fornito di molti utensili da cucina, c'e pure un comodo microonde, camera da letto dotata di Tv e dvd.
Molto pratico l'accesso carraio che consente il parcheggio della propria vettura senza occupare posti auto adibiti ai condomini limitrofi.
Molto simpatico il coniglietto che vive in giardino!
The accommodation is what in Spain is known as a orchard with shed, it has a ground floor and a basement where the bedroom is. The photos are very well done and do not give the impression of a humble home that really is. There is no kitchen as such, a tiny sink makes it very difficult to use. The boiler also very small and you can´t use for a shower for more than 5 min continuously. My partner and me could not shower afterwards, she could not wash her hair, she had to choose between her hair or her body. The stairs down to the basement is noisy and annoying at night if you have to go to the toilet. We were in October and had many mosquitoes. There is parking in the site but has no ford, one day a car was blocking the entrance and was hard to get in, if it blocked the entrance more we could not have parked and this was a detail to decide for this accommodation. The crockery and utensils are quite old. The bed is comfortable.
Vioctor, thanks for the review, I will use it to better tailor my hospitality. I am sorry for the boiler of the shower, it probably was not set to the highest temperature.
Unfortunately I am not responsible for people who park badly the car, however, the move towards to the parking lot was always possible.
I hope you have enjoyed the price really cheap.
