Das Haus hat eine ganz tolle, sehr ruhige Lage mit großartigem Ausblick. Es ist unheimlich liebevoll und umfassend eingerichtet. Durch das wunderschöne Baumhaus und sehr viele Spielmöglichkeiten im Haus und um das Haus herum (z.B. die liebe- und fantasievoll gestaltete Schatzsuche, Dart, Tischtennisplatte) wurde es auch unserem Sohn nie langweilig. Wir fanden bei unserer Ankunft sogar einen schön geschmückten natürlichen Weihnachtsbaum vor. Auch das restliche Haus war schön geschmückt, so dass man sich sofort wie zu Hause fühlen konnte. Die Umgebung ist ganz toll dazu geeignet, immer etwas neues zu unternehmen und zu entdecken, so dass uns während unseres zweiwöchigen Aufenthalts nie langweilig wurde. Bei Rückfragen war der Kontakt zu den Vermietern sehr unkompliziert, schnell und freundlich. Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und kommen auch gern nochmal wieder.

We stayed the week before Christmas. The chalet was fully equipped, immaculately clean, and lovely and warm. You can park your car outside the front door. We arrived late in the evening, the owners kindly waited up for us. Great views. We were a family of 3, on a skiing holiday, not much snow, but Amanda advised us where to go skiing, we had a great holiday. Would definitely return, and recommend to a friend.
