Guestbook comments from the owner
From the moment we arrived to the minute we left Jolanda and Olaf ensured we had a memorable stay. The chalet is very well appointed and has amazing views. Basile the chef was great catering for the diverse needs of a group that included 5 kids. Jolanda laid on a great breakfast each morning and Olaf was always there when we needed to get somewhere. You can feel that they really take pride in what they are doing.
