Excellent and precious place, fantastic location. The stairs can become a little upsetting but every house in the city is like that. A little expensive but really worth it. Dany, the owner, is charming and very attentive, every detail being taken care of. At our arrival we found a fully equipped kitchen, including cooffe, tea, and some breakfast, and clean bed sheets and towels. Perfect place to spend a few days in the very center of the city.

Everything is perfect, just stairs are a bit dangerous, especially at night when you want to go to toilet 2 flors downstairs.

We spent 3 wonderful days. The location is superb. Right in the centre. Danny was very helpful. The only word of caution, the stairs are extremely steep so if you have mobility problems beware. If you can cope with the stairs there is a nice balcony to enjoy a drink and some local fresh food. Would definitely book again
