Good location 5 min walk from the beach. A few nice bars on the street in front of the complex. Valerie’s good Italian home made deserts and the Britannia both with good WiFi. There’s also a couple of grocery store in that row. Short walk 10-15 min to town centre if you want more. All in all good place clean and tidy very quiet wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
