"Ton appartement nous plaît beaucoup."

"Ton appartement nous plaît beaucoup."

I think that "Your flat pleases us greatly" is just as good as "We like your flat a lot."  It's probably a little better translation because it tracks almost literally word for word with the French.  (Just as in "Su apartamento nos gusta mucho" could and would be acceptably rendered in either English translation, with no disagreement of substance.)

 „Hey, dude, your flat pleases me greatly!“ I just can‘t hear it. ;)

I agree - I suppose it's the difference btw colloquial speech and literary precision--which could be a situational issue, n'est-ce pas?  (I just wanted to get the test item right, darn it!)
