- 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. There is a covered dining area (gazebo) and a solarium. Down at the lake (near the dock area) there is a beach umbrella, table, chairs, and deck chairs. Guests may park a car on the premises. The house has two wings: one occupied by the guests and one occupied by the owners.
- Interior Description
Ground Floor: The house is built in Mediterranean style, with thick walls painted in white, shining terracotta floors, and naturally-colored arched windows and doors. Arched French doors lead to the living room with sofas, billiard table, fireplace, and satellite TV. There is also a dining room and a kitchen equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven, and toaster. The first bedroom has a single bed(200x100) and an adjacent bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower (the decorative tub is not for use).
The master bedroom can be accessed through the single bedroom and also has independent access from the garden. There are two single beds (195 x 90, which can be joined to make a double bed) and an ensuite bathroom with shower. The windows of this bedroom are equipped with mosquito nets.
Loft: In a loft above the single bedroom, there is a double bed (190x190, cannot be separated) and air-conditioning unit. There is also a small room with a single bed (190x80), suitable only for a child. There is a possibility to add a baby bed on request.
Please note: The stairs leading to the loft are narrow making it necessary to carrefully watch your steps as you go down. There is no bathroom available at the loft level, therefore it is necessary to use the bathroom downstairs and the night navigation may be not easy. In addition, the loft is not suitable for very tall people as the ceiling is quite low.

Peace and Quiet
Wonderful host/owner--very accommodating and helpful.
The location on the lake, the dock, and the use of kayaks.
White water rafting and tennis.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Directions are easy.
Check In Out:
Check in and out was seamless.
Pristine lakefront setting with gorgeous view and no road noise. The availability of the kayaks was a wonderful plus!!!
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.
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.
The villa was extremely clean and well presented. The owner was also lovely. Very helpful.
Location The owner was extremely helpful.
Lack of hot water in the kitchen.
The view and quietness of the area.
Nearby Events or Locales:

Tips or Restaurants:
Bring mosquito repellant. 10 Commandments restaurant in a nearby village.
