The apartment was lovely, the pool facility was great. We cycled ( picked up from the camping site place) and cycled the island - we had eco-bikes Amazing - we have ordered 2 bikes for home! I think that it should be stated that there is no balcony - to go sit outside, we got a table and chairs and sat underneath the window to eat supper. Local Insel Cuvée wine is to be recommended. The local produce is amazing - fresh washed lettuce in supermarket! We had a great stay - Thank You Horst

Entry is into a private courtyard / garden, shared with the family next door. The place itself is a great kitchen downstairs, then up to the main living area and bedroom, with bathroom on the same level. Further stairs lead to a small mezzanine where there is a single bed, but a great sleeping area for 2 kids with the extra mattress added. The area is fantastic. Large and small 'beach' areas into the lake are within and easy car / bus trip or walk. Great pizza from a local place and easy to ride the 'free' buses along the nearby villages. Konstanz is about 15 minutes trip away. Yvonne was very friendly and helpful despite our lack of German language. It is all very private from the family next door, but she is there if you want to ask anything and sorted quickly any issues we had. Really a great base for a family trip
