  • I had read before going a bit of reviews and I have to say that I had lowered expectations instead I have to admit that I loved it. The boat ride between the reeds, the fish jumping in the water, the royal ducks and the sunset on the lake... Wonderful! What to add? It's worth a visit!!!

  • Curious how shallow its waters are. A barge ride highly recommended and pleasant, and if you afterwards you have a rice at any of the restaurants in the area, perfect plan!
