Good lighting, pretty fabrics, soft pastel walls and solid oak doors comprise a bright understated décor. The living area is cosy while the light-filled, compact kitchen is neat-as-a-pin with its white sink, striped blinds at the windows and all the stuff you need for cooking breakfasts and suppers. Lots of useful basics, plus milk, bread, tea, coffee and eggs are left for you. Meals can be eaten at the little kitchen table or outside on the patio when the weather is good.
