On arrival no one was present at reception area.  Although the room had a microwave, kettle, etc. there was no coffee or tea or sugar in the room.  The day of our arrival was freezing so this was a terrible disappointment.  The shower was very dirty and the bedroom was riddled with wasps, one of which stung me during the evening.  Although a heater was provided it was not operational and therefore the room remained freezing for the duration of our stay.The only plus side was that there was plenty of hot water but other than that this is not a place I will visit again.

My partner and I, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your vicinity. It's clean, neat and with a comfortable bed. I will recommend it to my friends and family.

Fantastic weekend break! Close to home. Everything you need. Peaceful and quiet. Loads of space for the kids to play and friendly staff ;-)

Had a great stay. The Chalets are beautiful and nothing out of place, the views are spectacular. They are paving around the swimming pool, it's going to look very nice. View from the swimming pool is beautiful. We really enjoyed it and will be visiting again very soon. Perfect place for a Romantic break away.
