Tutto quello che avevo sognato

  • 5 of 5

La nostra vacanza e andata meglio del previsto.Quando avevo prenotato pensavo che non sarebbe stato cosi bello come sembrava dalle foto e dalla descrizione. La nostra sorpresa di trovare una casa cosi bella, rustica, accogliente e nelle vicinanze del Lago Maggiore e stata totale.La proprietaria, la pulizia, parcheggio privato, giardino, barbecue, tutto a posto, non mancava niente. La consiglierei volentieri a qualsiasi parente o amico mio.
