AN EXCELLENT CHOICE (AGAIN)! by Jill Finch, Oxford, 23/04/2015 on October 27th 2016
An excellent choice of destination for our party. To find an apartment with four en suite bedrooms was perfect. Plenty of space for two couples and two singles in our group. A second visit for us and brilliant weather once again!
