Our two bedroom apartment was very clean and tidy. The extra heaters left for us in the room left us cozy and warm during the cold winter night. Just out of town it was an easy 5 minute drive to get to the local restaurants. The wifi was poor with very patchy coverage.

Place felt very new, was double glazed and insulated. Very clean inside and plenty of heaters were provided, including electric blankets! Good range of appliances, utensils and kitchen tools in the chalets. Had to make a last minute booking change to include more people,and they made it happen & with the preferred bed setups in each room. Would definitely stay here again
