She also offered to get us fresh fruit and vegetables from the Tuesday market as we would arriving too late The Lake is truly amazing with the ferry giving you access to all areas

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    Only got a 2 burner hob in the apartment so very limited if you want to self cater. Very clean and well presented though. Only minor gripe was the two parties of school children who did not seem to understand the concept of a quiet area. The pool was warm and scenery stunning. Staff are a little disinterested but we didn't go to see them so not really a major problem.
