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.

Great place really close to the train station and metro stops

5 of 5
We loved staying here with our kids. We were met promptly and were warmly welcomed. Really clean and modern, with some extra food gifts that were really enjoyed. The black-out external shutters really keep it pitch dark when closed for a really good nights rest. Absolutely great with nothing to complain about at all.
