We rented this flat for our first holiday with our 10-month old son.We wanted a self-contained place, very close to the beach, and close to shops and restaurants. It was exactly what we were looking for! The flat itself is actually nicer than in the pictures, well-equipped and comfortable, with a lovely peak of the sea from the terrace. Stefano, our host, was very kind and helpful, and even went the extra mile to arrange a baby cot for us.
The only downside I can think of was that there were a lot of ants, but they had provided powder to keep them from entering through the back door and we tried to keep all the food in the fridge.
The beach is a 5 minute walk away. There is a simple beach cafe, where we had breakfast every morning. We also tried a couple of restaurants in Stintino, which were excellent, as well as the very nearby L'Ancora Porticciolo. There was also a great take-away restaurant in Stintino, which worked well for us in the evenings when we did not want to cook and our son was in bed, as well as small shops with great local produce. La Pelosa beach is gorgeous, but best to get in early in the morning, before the crowds take over.
All in all, excellent value and a lovely holiday!
