Thanks Pablo, it was great having you stay with us. By beaten path, Pablo means that we are not right downtown and he didn't have a vehicle. You can see downtown below from the apartments so the view is spectacular from the balcony. If you do take the beaten path, at the end of our road, it takes 20 minutes to get down into the town if you are a hiker. When rainy, the beaten path can be slippery so have good tread on your runners or hiking boots. If you need more exercise, you can take the long way around, the sidewalks to town, and that is 45 minutes. If you are driving, it is 5 minutes.
