Set into the slope, a succession of semicircles has been carved into the ground to create an open-air theatre in the Greek style – against the stunning backdrop of the lake. This magical place provides a daytime or night-time setting for the festivals, shows and concerts that are regularly held there. Audiences are captivated; they gather on the grass-covered terraces, equipped for the occasion with grass-green cushions. The owner of this place knows all the secrets to being a good host.
