Worthwhile place to visit and spend a few hours learning local culture. Good first place to visit before heading out to the other REAL villages on the lake

We spent one night in the cozy, clean, and newly renovated room overlooking the patio and had breakfast at the on-site cafe. Not the cheapest option, but of good quality and safe-feeling. Friendly service and an interesting location, 5 mins walk from the lakeshore and...More
