It's so peaceful and relaxing, a real getaway location. There's so much to do and so many places to visit that we look forward to returning. We hired a boat from Dongo, visited Villa Carlotta, took the ferry to Bellagio and enjoyed Menaggio. There are plenty of good places to eat and the food was one of the highlights of our holiday. We also ate at home for quite a few nights, the kitchen is well equipped and it was just nice to relax and not have to go out. This was a special holiday for our 30th Anniversary and it certainly felt special. We look forward to returning.

Apartment had it's own private parking area and also had sun loungers, canoe, etc to use for our stay. Local shops, bars, restaurants, tennis courts within walking distance. Lovely traditional village, friendly people. On local bus routes, or catch a boat. Would thoroughly recommend staying here, a very relaxing holiday with fantastic views.
