The property is a duplex apartment, which is part of the condominium "La Sirenetta" which, in turn, is part of a larger condominium called "Baia del carpino village" which takes the name from the gorgeous bay just below it. The apartment is available for short or long term holiday stays. 15 min walk from secluded, 'private' beaches. The apartment comprises a fully-fitted kitchen with washing machine (no dishwasher), front and back yards, a terrace overlooking the greenery of the Sirenetta condo, main bedroom and guest room, bathroom with shower and an extra bathroom with hand-basin, toilet and bidet. Having your own transport is recommended albeit a shuttle service to local beaches available during the high season. No WiFi is available but a cell-phone mast is located a few hundred meters away. An excellent pizzeria /bakery, just a few steps from the front door, is open for business during the summer months.
Free parking is available in front of the apartment and in reserved bays at the back of the Sirenetta condo.
The running water in the Baia del Carpino tourist village is bore-hole water and, therefore, it is not potable. It is recommended that water for drinking and cooking purposes should be boiled. However, potable water is available from the village fountain on via De Bonis, a few hundred metres from the pizzeria.
