Customer Reviews

Overall:
Overall, our experience at the property was pleasant and relaxing.
Enjoyed Most:
The view of the lake and close proximity made each morning's sunrise special. The gardens and grounds are very serene with chaise lounge chairs which made for easy relaxing. The terrace allowed for beautiful alfresco dining.
Enjoyed Least:
The air conditioning in the middle bedroom never did get cool according to the couple who stayed there. The instructions for the washer/dryer are in Italian, only. The rugs and runners were quite slippery with nothing to keep them anchored. One of the lucite chairs in the kitchen broke.
Surrounding Area:
Walking distance to the little market and restaurants. Easy transit by bus to ferry landings and other towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Laglio was within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
The two restaurants in town were both very good but I cannot remember the name. Fresh fish offerings and pasta were both superb.
Directions:
We took private transportation and had no problem finding the property.
