Unforgettable holidays at Apricot Garden. A very nice, calm and romantic place in a generous garden, away from bustling roads. The room maintenance and a spacious bathroom, made our stay very comfortable. Breakfast and the dinners at the guesthouse, were excellent. Organisation of bookings (t-times, restaurants) were Alex in good hands. We'll come back.

This is an absolutely delightful guest house where the owners go to no end of trouble to make you feel at home. The panoramic views are spectacular, the rooms tastefully decorated and the food is outstanding. A great plus is they will prepare occasional dinners for you. All in all, a memorable stay. Thank you.
