"A paradise by the lake"

We travelled with our 2 children and found a really beautiful "cosy" house with gorgeous views. Very nice and peaceful garden. We had there several al fresco meals cooked in the BBQ. All breakfasts were taken in the balcony facing the lake's water.The house was very clean. Our children loved the canoeing. Congratulations and thanks to the nice couple. They were very friendly and very helpful. We will be back again.
