It is one of only four villages on the western side of the lake which is by-passed above by the main lake road, making it a tranquil haven. The village has all basic amenities, including small store, bar and a selection of great restaurants, serving local specialties from lake fish to home made fresh pasta. There is also a small public beach. Take up jogging and at around 8am early morning (when in residence at Villa Oleandra) you may catch famous local resident, George Clooney out for his morning jog. It has easy access around the lake via car, bus or ferries in neighbouring villages.
