We had a pool we could use anytime and although we didn't use it there was a lovely sauna in the basement of the chalet. We would recommend this holiday for anyone looking for a quiet break or for those wishing to visit cities and return to the peace of the valley. There are mountain walks from the doorstep and streams in the valley. Perfect holiday.
