Enjoyed the convenient guests fridge, with cheap delicious beer. Only note, the pictures are kind of confusing, as the property can be split in 2 for smaller groups.

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!
