Located in the Avenues close to the City

 All amenities really close. 

Breathtaking lake views - short walk into town.

 The update of the decor is fantastic, fresh, cheerful and funky. A very easy place to stay, great location, 5 minutes walk to town and of course million dollar views. Highly recommend this holiday home. 

Stunning panoramic views from relaxing town-house

 Lovely to sit on the balcony and enjoy the views

Stunning panoramic views from relaxing town-house

 Wonderful view from the terrace over the lake. Property extremely well equipped, if a little shabby in places, but very clean and comfortable.
