Exterior Description
(10,000 m2) This private and picturesque villa is situated in a secluded residential area that was once a palace garden. The house is far from busy streets — a quiet, paved road leads to the entrance of the gated community. The area immediately surrounding the house is made up of flowers and manicured lawns. The property offers a beautiful view of the lake (which is only a few steps away from the house), and it has its own landing dock. Guests may park a car on the premises. The house has two wings: one occupied by the guests and one occupied by the owners.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful property. Wonderful host/owner--very accommodating and helpful.
Enjoyed Most:
The location on the lake, the dock, and the use of kayaks.
Surrounding Area:
White water rafting and tennis.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Directions are easy.
Check In Out:
Check in and out was seamless.

Suzanne, June

Enjoyed Most:
Pristine lakefront setting with gorgeous view and no road noise. The availability of the kayaks was a wonderful plus!!!
Enjoyed Least:
There was only a single bed that was not for a single-person, and it is in an open loft with no view and only two tiny windows for ventilation. Not a big gripe, but not ideal.
Surrounding Area:
Lots to do and see, and lake activities as a break from cultural sightseeing.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The two restaurants within walking distance were both poor, but there is a grocery within walking distance. Otherwise one has to drive for everything else.

Steven, June

Nearby Events or Locales:
Stressa was not within walking distance. However there were some lovely small villages within walking distance of the villa.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring mosquito repellant. 10 Commandments restaurant in a nearby village.
