“Nice outside area. Not so nice inside.”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We booked this place for nine days, but after four days we've had enough. There is an air-condition on the groundfloor, but the bedroom is on the mezzanine floor. We had normal summer temperature outside. The bedroom was 27-28 degrees warm at night.
Lots of ants inside the flat.
Mosquitos outside in the evening.

What an amazing place to stay. Really different! Set into the cliff face it is a stone cottage with so much oldie worldly character. Very romantic.
We went when it was cold and wet and felt very cosy. But it would be fantastic to be there in the summer when you could utilise the terraces.
The information from the booking agents was very useful too and gave us ideas of things to do while we visited the area. You do need a car. It would have been useful to have a pack in the apartment though with information on how to use the shower, where the supermarket was etc. We arrived on a Sunday with no milk or bread, and everywhere closed!
The only other problem we had was showering...there is a huge new shower across the open terrace which we did brave despite the cold and rain but only managed one hot shower from the tank. My poor fiancé had a cold shower. Not nice on a cold, wet morning. The shower in the cottage was tiny and hard to get hot water from too.
I felt the photos on the website led you to believe this property was actually on the lake and in fact a road divides it. Also the cliff it is built into provides a road tunnel that is the equivalent to an A road. In the morning rush hour this was noisy. As we're the church bells......but that's the joy of staying in Italy.
