The apartment was clean, bright and attractively decorated. It had all the kitchen equipment you could need and a big dining table. Beds were comfy, the shower was hot with good water flow, and the views from the terrace were lovely on a sunny day. Christine looked after us very well. She speaks excellent English and was friendly and helpful. There is a washing machine, but it is in the basement of the house, so just ask Christine if you need to use it. We would definitely stay here again!

Very clean and fully furnished. We cooked there every night and were very comfortable. Newly renovated apartment with a luxurious bathroom and very nice decor throughout. One of the mornings was warm enough for us to eat breakfast in the garden, with a view pf snow covered mountain. We hope to return in the near future!
