Great communication prior to our trip, easy to follow instructions regarding access and a truly breath-taking location. 360 degree mountain views and a lovely campsite with pool and bar area just in front of the property. The chalet was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need - kitchen utensils, coffee machine, fridge freezer etc. Bedrooms were cosy and spacious. An overall top experience - hopefully be back someday in the near future.

Das Haus bietet reichlich Platz und Privatsphäre für mehr als eine Familie wenn man aber dennoch nicht auf gemeinsame Abende und Nachmittage im Außen-Wirlpool verzichten will. Geräumiger Wohnraum mit großen Tisch und einer toll eingerichteten Küche. Es fehlte an nichts, sogar Babybetten und Hochstühle wurden bereitgestellt. Sehr nette Vermieter!!!
