Ciao James e Susanna,
le foto dell'appartamento 2 di Portapenta sono quelle della seconda pagina (dalla foto dove vedi " 2 " in poi : terrazzo, foto del salotto con divano rosso etc etc). L'appartamento è molto carino. Portapenta si trova a Praiano, un paese molto accogliente e non così famoso come Positano ....
