The apartment was warm on the rainy two days and the bed was comfortable. We were impressed by the whole experience and facilities. The little town was atmospheric with lovely little shops and the views of the snow capped mountain range in the distance was superb...pity the water levels were down on the lake so there was no views. The hikes in this area were perfect and we had great sunny days most of the week.

Laid back would be a good description of him but nothing is too much trouble. It helps if you are a little laid back too, and being a dog-lover is a must as Ollie's two lovely little terrier crosses are regular visitors. Pepper and Gomez (who lost a hind leg in a fight with other dogs 3 years ago but whose spirit is indomitable). The cottage and garden and picking oranges for breakfast juice every morning are special treats. Good weather helps of course and we shall return. Ollie has lived here for many years and is a reliable and wise source of local information. Cool nights are compensated by a super open fire and dry logs. Sublime! Difficult to find much to criticise but beds are not particularly comfortable and next time we shall bring our own pillows! Thank you Ollie.
