I was wary about renting this place, the pictures showing a fairly dated decoration.
Licia was prompt in her response, although there was some slight misunderstanding about our request of two baby cots and additional request if they can supply highchair, I trust her to have done her best to provide what they could.
We were party of two families, both with very young baby (8 months and 18 months). Licia did warn us about the place being not child friendly but we managed.
The apartment has wonderful view of the roman theater, and some roofs of the city center. Location wise it's wonderful being just across the old Roman bridge. A short walk behind the apartment, you get to the beautiful hill top with superb view of the city and if you find your way, you can stroll pass the beautiful village along the hill side.
Two bedrooms are well separated, each with own bathroom. This was ideal for us so the children will not wake each other up. Bathrooms should be improved, owner should spend small money installing shower curtain (solid or textile does not matter!) over the bathtub. After each shower, half the bathroom is wet.
The apartment comes with two big and spacious living rooms, we like the space. Balcony rather tight but you can still put two chairs up there. Looking down will be the carpark but over the other roof terrace, you see the city.
Kitchen is tight but functional. Fancy heavy bottom stainless steel pots and pans, not so useful for egg frying. No wine glasses?! We borrowed some from a restaurant after spending generously on their wine.
During our stay, somebody tried to break into the house and destroy the lock and left us stranded at the door when we return early evening. Licia and the owner's sister came immediately and did what they had to do - cal the police, call a lock smith. It was a Saturday night, the whole ordeal lasted shorter than we had expected, they dealt with it well. Thief did not manage to get into the apartment.
Washing machine was not working during our stay, Licia kindly took the children's laundry home to wash and returned the next day ironed!
They were relaxed when we requested for a later check out. Deposit was returned without problem.
This is a huge two bedrooms apartment (third bedroom was locked for owner's stuffs), good location, honest host, and wonderful views from all windows. We will return, highly recommended.
