              The chalet is well equipped and tastefully decorated. The mountain views are picture perfect. The bed is a bit uncomfortable and I would suggest that an electric blanket and winter sheets be available in the winter :-)

              Great cottage, spacious and equipped with most things any casual traveler would need. Kitchen is especially well equipped.Instructions for using a gas oven would be an added touch, most people know how to use a gas hob, however not many know about a gas oven. Instructions for where to turn the geyser on would also be helpful.Overall it is a great place to stay.

              We loved our stay. Very organised and Dora is great. I would suggest another toilet be added into the main bathroom as well as a hand wash basin into the single loo. Not easy with 6 people and one loo! A bit cramped with the bunks in the room. But we had a very enjoyable time. Absolutely fantastic view!
