It was perfect!

5 of 5
The property was clean and in a quiet area away from other tourists. It had all we wanted and well supplied. It was ideally situated centrally and right on the lake near shops and the ferry. There were many excellent eating places. However, the main benefit to us was Antonio who was very helpful and gave us a warm welcome. He was very informative about the area and gave us a great intoduction to the history of town. Thanks! We would stay again.

Nice location

4 of 5
Had a lovely stay in this villa. Complex was very quiet when we visited in April. Convient local restaurant and small supermarket and bakery. Pleasasant short walk up to the museum and view point. Downhill short walk to lake and lake side bars and restaurants.
