this is a really lovely hotel with quite stunning views of the lake and the island nunnery.
The rooms are quite small but very well equipped and the bathrooms are excellent.
Opt for a lake view overlooking the pool but high up if possible as there are trees.
The food is excellent but breakfast should be served outside in order not to miss the lovely views.
Great spa treatments from some lovely ladies and Michaela at the bar was a star
The hotel is quite expensive but who can put a price on the view and serenity of the location
The town is lovely and Venus is a great restaurant but beware all locations are full of mosquitoes so spray and cover up or risk being eaten alive....
