The menagerie of animals living on the premises made the situation even more idyllic. Helene was adorable, amazingly helpful in any way possible, and made our disappointingly short stay very, very enjoyable. Would highly recommend and will most definitely be returning in the future.

The accommodation is stunning and was a great place to relax after a day hiking. The owners kept in touch to make sure we had everything that we needed nothing was too much trouble. I highly recommend staying here and we will certainly be going back. Maybe with our ski's next time!
