                                                                                                      5 of 5

The terrace is excellent for al fresco dinning. The infrastructure of the flat is very good, with all you need for your stay. We have done day trips to Ascona, Locarno, Bellizona and Versaska vale amongst others. The lake is just a drive below and great for a swimm. Communication with the owner is easy and straight forward. We had a very good experience and hope to return.
