“Lovely apartment with great outside spaces and views”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Vlore is a town on the Albanian Riviera which, like much of the country, is spoiled by litter and pollution. Nevertheless, it is a lovely coastline, blessed by good weather. There are dozens of good restaurants (mostly Italian-themed) and some pretty mediocre ones as well.

The apartment is towards the southern end of town, where the beach opens out into a long expanse of sand along the boulevard and row of bars and restaurants. Despite this, you will not be much bothered by noise from the street or the bars.

The apartment is at the top of a nine storey high block, with lovely views of the bay and huge outside balconies. The main room serves as a kitchen and lounge, where the settees convert into a single and a double bed. Upstairs there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. In warm weather the apartment does not feel crowded with five because there is so much outside space. The only problem (and the reason why I have not awarded 5 stars) is the lack of shade on the balconies. The apartment faces south and the sun beats down on the balconies and the windows. There is nowhere to hide. At the beginning of our week there the temperature was 35 degrees C in the day and even the air-conditioning could not reduce the room temperature sufficiently. Blinds or a pergola on the balcony would both provide shade for sitting outside and considerably reduce the air-conditioning costs. As the temperature dropped to about 30C we were blessed by a cooling breeze and the temperature was sufficiently bearable to be outside all day.

There are local shops and a supermarket 10 minutes walk away and the beach is even nearer (though a 20 min walk further down the beach offers cleaner sand and water).

This apt is brand new and fantastic. Very clean, well decorated and it have a large tarrace overlooking a stunning sea view. It's located only a short stroll to the seaside.
If you're planning to visit the Albanian Riviera, you must stay here!
