                  Tranquil and beautiful surroundings. We booked 3 of the chalet with my family and they are nice and spacious. The linen need to be changed, they looked very old. Hygiene need to be key, spider web's on most corner's of the room. The measure concern is the electricity issues. We stayed from 23:00 - 05:00 without electric and we had little ones there that needed bottles which became a real inconvenience. The elec went on and off from 8:00 the next morning until 20:00 at night. Such a big inconvenience it was with preparing meals ETC. Please look into getting a generator for such. However the 3...

                  Lovely stay with everything in good working order. Peaceful and quiet. Conveniently located to explore the area.

                  It is a very nice quiet place for whenever you need peace of mind. However the place is not so clean there are spider webs every where and the bed is so old. On our first night we could not sleep due to heavy thunder storm for about 4 hours. Our wooden chalet (Eland) was making such scary noise and my kids were crying. Overall when you are tired of the busy city life you can visit then you'll restore your inner peaceRegardsTracey
