Fabulous apartment in a fabulous location

5 of 5
Simply the prettiest place we have visited! Breathtaking and the apartment is in a great position. Everyone in the building was friendly and our kids had a great time. They loved the pool and jumping in the lake. The apartment has everything you need and it was great we didn’t need to take bedding, towels and oil etc fir cooking Urs even provided coffee which was a lovely surprise - we love coffee Would definitely aim to return Thank you
