Cozy cabin & beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a cozy cabin away from it all! The drive "home" each evening was a highlight of our travels. Very peaceful location. Cabin itself is small, but the lay-out worked well for our family with 8 children. Great location and we would recommend this rental!

Séjour Rural dans un cadre magnifique

  • 4 of 5

Le chalet nous a paru très rustique au premier abord mais finalement nous l'avons quitté avec regrets car malgré sa simplicité il est fort bien aménagé.

La literie est confortable. La cuisine est pratique, tous les ustensiles de cuisine utiles et vaisselle sont prévus. Il y a également lave linge, sèche linge et mini lave vaisselle ce qui n'est pas négligeable lorsque l'on vient en famille et avec de jeunes enfants.

Saxeten est vraiment un village sympathique dans un cadre magnifique. Idéal pour les randonneurs et les amoureux de la nature.

A noter quand même que la route d'accès est une vraie route de montagne, compter 10 mn pour accéder aux commerces les plus proches mais cela fait parti de son charme et il y a aussi tout un tas de choses à découvrir dans ce petit village qui ont ravi nos petits enfants comme la scierie avec sa roue à aube...
