Fantastisch !

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in dieser ausgesprochen stilvollen Villa.

Wir waren fünf Tage zu elft im Haus (mit Kinder) ohne dass es uns dabei eng geworden wäre. Alle Zimmer haben etweder eine grandiose Sicht auf den See oder auf den kunstvollen Garten (sehr schöne Azaleen!!)

Die Parzelle hat direkten Zugang zum See - im Sommer bestimmt wunderbar. Wir haben im April immerhin diese direkte Sicht zum See und den Alpen genossen.

Im Haus gibts Billiard, eine Musikanlage, viel Platz zum Lesen und zusammensein!

Wir werden wieder kommen, asap!!
