We were so very happy to have the chance to stay at the lovely BellaDoria Villa. It was a welcome change in pace in the midst of a tour across Europe. The beds were very comfortable--great linens, towels, kitchen items (loved the wine glasses)--as were all the furnishings. We sat on the deck for hours watching the lake and loved every minute of it. The condo is located in a quite area, close to hiking trails--which were excellent adventures during the day. Sue was very helpful with everything and the process was very easy. The property was very clean and well maintained, as well as safe. We can not wait to return.

We did not have a car and did fine with staying at the villa. You have to be ready to walk, but the place is so pretty it is very pleasant to walk to the station (trains leave every hour to nearby towns) and easy. We might bring a car next time to explore the area even more.
