Let me first say that Heather is one of the most gracious ladies I have ever met. She also has a fine sense of humor. Upon our arrival we were greeted with wine, champagne and fresh fruit. Nice touch after a long travel day. Heather invited us to share a glass of wine one evening, she is a wealth of information. We only wished we had more time to share with her. The apartment is furnished very comfortably and is so convenient to all the happenings in the Centro. During the day and early evening hours we would open all the windows and take in the sounds from the street below. The problems we incurred, which were fairly minor such as lost internet connection and leaking faucet were addressed immediately and professionally. We plan to return next spring for a long term stay and hopefully to a new friend.
