Lovely location from which to explore the area. We found the 4 sleeper chalet a bit cramped for a family of 4, even though our children are small.Neat and clean with friendly staff. Perhaps a bit overpriced for the size of the chalet. Great views, and the children enjoyed exploring the farm. Lovely breakfasts.
