                                                                                                      4 of 5

But once inside, very charming and peaceful with terraced garden ideal for eating and relaxation. Smart and well equipped with dishwasher but no washing machine (launderette nearby). In very hot weather you might regret the absence of air-conditioning. Property headline says " ......with parking" but that is charged extra: however very conveniently situated just a short walk away. Well placed for the lake, restaurants, cycle routes, boats etc.

We did find it so hard to drag ourselves off the beautiful private jetty - could just roll off it into the lake whenever it got hot. Could just watch the lake, mountains and the para-gliders overhead. The studio itself was lovely - and the table in the garden a lovely place to have breakfast or dinner whilst looking over the lake.
