Good apartment in an outstanding spot

5 of 5
Riva di Solto is a small village in the northern, more mountainous part of the lake. It has the advantage that it is bypassed by most of the lakeside traffic leaving the village relatively tranquil. This is particularly true of the apartment which is separated from the lake side by just the width of a narrow road and a beautiful garden. In the evening the terrace affords a splendid view of the most beautiful mountain on the lake. The photo does not do it justice! The village has a small supermarket and several good restaurants. We preferred the one near the campsite 5 min walk to the south. Roberto was extremely caring and kind to us and had taken care to provide all our needs down to the last detail. On our departure Roberto gave us an official receipt for the money he had received and we were surprised to see that it was only 654,49 Euro which seems small compared to the 813,60 Euro that we had paid OwnersDirect.
