What a delightful holiday we have had in this cosy, quirky, comfortable chalet. Love all the books, T & E have discovered Agatha Christie and are hooked! We've biked, walked, swum, kayaked and toboganned the week away with alarming speed. We shall miss this very special location and the stunning mountain views. The glorious weather has topped it all. Thanks for everything!
