Flooded with light this south facing mezzanine apartment in the Old Town is a real gem. We think it has some of the best views and ambience in the Old Town. A bottle of wine and a picnic for two on the balcony is a must and if you love people watching then this is the perfect spot for you. We’ve had two marriage proposals on the balcony at Juliette so this apartment lives up to its namesake! Complimentary WiFi included.
