The place is definitely beyond majestic, plus very kind staff and locals. The pictures seen online doesn't really give complete justice to how amazing this place is. I strongly recommend this place for a holiday getaway for you and your loved ones. See it for yourself and you will know what I mean -- I suggest going during winter season. My partner and I will definitely go back to this amazing paradise! Not to mention this place is a dog-friendly one. How cool is that!

Looking for somewhere different? 1260m above sea level in a ski field area in summer. Great scenery and some good walks. Sometimes windy. The road access is what you would expect for a ski field.

Perfect weekend getaway
This place is amazing! Stunning views, peaceful, comfy bed, everything clean, organized, kitchen fully equipped, the bathtub is awesome to relax and is actually bigger than it looks like. Tim was very helpful and friendly. We will definitely going back and we will recommend this place to all our friends! Take repellent, fly spray, citronella candles and everything you can to keep the flys away lol

Beautiful location. Great little main cabin with showers and toilets etc (no fridge, if you bring anything cold in winter just leave it out in the snow!) the pillows were pretty sad and felt like they might give up soon, bed needed more blankets as it was pretty chilly, but bearable. Hot tub fairly hard to get going, ended up having a luke warm bath but cant fault it purely because of the beauty of the location, would come back!
