Stayed: December 2018

Exquisite digs!! The Chalet was spotless and had every conceivable extra you could want - from starlight on the 2nd bedroom ceiling, to a multitude of games and puzzles to keep you occupied. The place was spotless, breakfast was divine, and the hosts were the friendliest, most welcoming couple you could ever hope to meet. A++++, highly recommended.
