  • We had a great time at Rifugio. It's a beautiful house with a cosy feel and lots of nice personal touches. The beds and couches are very comfy and there's a selection of movies and books. The gardens are beautiful. View is stunning and it's only a short walk to centre of town.

    Sunil (USA) - May, 2019

  • We really enjoyed this house! It has everything that you would need, including full kitchen, washing machine and dryer, driveway parking and a great patio with a bbq and a table and chairs for al fresco dining with a view of the lake. The house is located along a walking path which made it super easy to get into the small town (3 mins walk).

    Kyle (USA) - Jan, 2019

  • Nice view of the lake from the patio. Easy walking path to the lake and restaurants. Would definitely return.
