Hotel Fontana is in an old villa with fairly large grounds. Room 25 wasn't the largest in the place but it was one of the larger ones we had on our trip. And it had the advantage of being a corner room that got great cross breezes to cool it. Very nice, large balcony which was shady much of the time overlooking the grounds and the lake. Bathroom narrow with a half-size bathtub. Lots of chairs and swings scattered around the grounds. Lots of animals too - dogs, cats chickens, crows. We spent a couple of hours in the shady yard one afternoon with a very large rooster as a companion while we ate a picnic lunch and read. Very good breakfast with heated bread and crossants, coffee and tea brought to your table plus buffet of cheese, meat, yogurt, fresh fruit, boil your own eggs. Very attentive and cordial service throughout the stay. Only downside is the noisy road that it is located on but it quiets down at night. Downtown is a pleasant 15 minute walk along the lake.
