Fantastic location with great view of Lake

5 of 5
We had a fantastic week in Katarina's apartment at beginning of April. Fantastic views from huge balcony. Short walk down to local bars and restaurants. Apartment itself was fully equipped with all you need for your stay. Katarina herself was great - met us off the bus before taking us up to apartment. Her energy is great. She also had a welcome package of local wine, water and some bits and pieces to get us going. Katarina also left us some local produce on the doorsteps a couple of times during our stay which was lovely. We highly recommend a stay in this apartment you will not be disappointed. And then just sit on the balcony and enjoy the views. Only down point was we left the island on the day there were big celebrations taking place on the lake to celebrate Easter! Janet & David
