Whilst the good things about this chalet are that it is in a lovely position with marvellous views and well equipped sad to say the bottom apartment for two people had a constant musty smell.
Any persons hiring this chalet should read with care "The House Rules".
The owner meets you and takes over an hour going over these, the first rule being never to enter the house with your shoes on. The owner provides previously used mules which may well have been washed but I would suggest taking your own slippers if you wish to comply.
There are photos on the doors of the kitchen cabinets of the order you are expected to keep the China, glass etc and even the wardrobes have pictures of the arrangement of the hangers and extra blankets expected on departure.
This means you are constantly having to make sure nothing is out of place.
This does not make for a relaxing holiday.
We even had an email from the owns telling us that a couple of fruit stains on a damask table cloth had been hard to remove. I suggest a plastic one would be better then .
