The apartment is more like a house, approximately 70 square metres, and is spread over three floors. It's located in the centre of the village, and is literally seconds from everywhere.
Entering from the street, you go upstairs and in to the open-plan living area, incorporating the kitchen with walk-in pantry, dining space, lounge with writing desk and comfortable sofa-bed. There is a separate utility room incorporating the washing machine.
The dining area easily seats 6 people.
What's in the kitchen? There's a dishwasher, ceramic hob, fan oven, microwave, coffee machine, kettle, toaster, and everything you could want to create a gourmet dish.
What's in the lounge area? There's satellite TV and DVD player with loads of films, a HiFi system including a record deck and iPod connectivity, many books, CDs, vinyl LPs, games - and comfortable seating to help you relax.
Going upstairs, you will come to the two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The first (double-bedded) room has ensuite shower, toilet and sink, and the second (twin bedded) room has adjacent separate bathroom with shower, toilet and sink.
From the landing between the two bedrooms there is another staircase leading to the mezzanine and roof terrace. The mezzanine has a day-bed (perfectly comfortable to sleep in), and a writing table by the window that looks out onto the partly-covered terrace and outside living space. It's the perfect place to write your next novel and retreat into your own world.
Stepping out onto the terrace you will first see the kitchenette with its own fridge and ice bucket. There are plenty of plates, glasses and cutlery up there, so you can prepare drinks, salads and cold snacks whenever you fancy.
Then, be prepared to have your breath taken away, as you step past the kitchennete and marvel at the incredible view. However these pictures may be, they can't possibly do justice to the experience of standing there and taking it all in. You simply have to be there. Of course there are tables, chairs and recliners. Just put your feet up, sit back and relax. After all, that's what a holiday is all about.
From the terrace you can also see the church and some of the town below. Pretty soon you'll be wanting to have a wander around the charming village - just turn to CHAPTER 2 to find out more.
