Situated in a quiet location, but only a short distance away from restaurants, bars and local shops. The lakeside port is a short walk, it's clean and very quiet. Even the inclement weather did not spoil this holiday for us. We had the best time. Thank you Carol, for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment and your welcome hospitality. A well recommended rental!
