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!

There is adequate space for 4 people without feeling cramped. The owners ensured we were well looked after, meeting us on arrival and during stay. Great facilities, highly recommended and well priced.
