Having a heated pool was a real treat and meant we were able to use it much later into the evening. We hope to return one day & enjoy another glass wine overlooking the mountains. Thank you Florence & family for sharing your beautiful home with us.

It would be great is WiFi were available free, as advertised, if there was a DVD player and if there was an iron and an ironing board too. That aside. We had a great time and will definitely look to stay again when the snow is there :)
