    “Perfect for what we needed”
    We went in Feb for a week with a 4 and 6 year old. We did a castle a day from here. The chalet was warm and welcoming-good value for money. It was old-fashioned but clean and everything worked. The owners had topped up the meter and left the heaters on so when we arrived (in the dark) it was very cosy. Highlight for the kids was 'Jacko-oh' the Jack Russell-extremely friendly and child-friendly. Owners were friendly without being intrusive.
