Location has been mentioned, of course, and that's true in terms of not many steps needed to reach the quai for a stroll and to watch people being tourists and, now and then, seeing them relaxing. Which proximity is important.
The bigger ingredient for me, though, was the view from our balcony, always there. Fresh air exactly the right temperature, the privilege of breathing it in, in that setting whenever. Not to be equaled.
Add to that the sensitive yet generous hosts, for this convenient living space, and you have an unbeatable week ahead. Go for it!
