En outre le contact avec le propriétaire est très facile et agréable.

The views are stunning and it is very well located - not far from the shops or the cable cars but not in the centre of the village. It is warm and cozy. It has a very large basement for storage and extra space. The 9 beds are comfortable although there is probably not enough living space for 9 adults. I went with kids so there was no problem with this. The owner was helpful when I needed it.
