Apart from the wifi internet connection and a broken drying rack everything was up to specification or better. We especially liked the nice design of and furniture in the apartment. Our dog was particularly happy to be able to run around on the lawn all day. The owner (Nick) and our hostess (Cinzia) did a perfect job in providing descriptions and guidance beforehand as well as on arrival.

Parking was secure and included. Just a minutes walk down the steps and there is a very good restaurant that overlooks the lake, and a lovely bar too below it. Would visit again. Many thanks:)

The house is spotless, very cosy and has got everything you need (more than you need, actually). Best place I've stayed.
