The facilities were really good with a good size lounge area. Dealing with the owners was easy and created no problems. Would definitely use the Chalet again.

The chalet is very nicely decorated, with a separate snug for the children to watch Tv or play. The fireplace is lovely! In addition, the chalet is well appointed and furnished with esentials such as dishcloths, condiments etc. It is obviously a well-loved, home-owned chalet with a corresponding atmosphere and charm, We are hoping to return next year.
