L'appartamento era in posizione centralissima; pulitissimo e con tutti i confort; soltanto qualche problema per arrivare, nonostante il navigator, a destinazione, mancando una precisazione quanto all'esatta ubicazione. A me è stata d'aiuto una gentilissima persona del luogo, che ci ha condotto all'indirizzo e poi l'altrettanto vicino che iccupava l'appartamento sovrastante. Grazie e ciao
