A well decorated house. At arrive a warm welcome. At first we felt at ease. But that changed rapidly due to the arrival of guests with kids behaving like little demons. First they took over the second floor where our room was admits theirs. Next they took over the whole house. No place to hide left. The parents nor the... More

I agree with every review here. I just stayed 3 nights with "the Elves"... it was wonderful. Worth the drive and the francs. Don't hesitate, if you are anywhere in the neighborhood book this wonderful bed and breakfast and stay an extra night. The chalet is just as it appears in the pictures and better: the rooms are charming and... More

We absolutely love this place. We have been there a couple of times when we feel the need to escape from town and just relax in the mountain. The hotel is in the village of Albinen, one of the best in the entire Alps to get a fell for how life was in the mountains many years ago, the wooden... More

Stayed for few days with my family, so had family room consisting of 1,5 rooms. Sweet well renovated house, romantic could be another word for it. The owners family is living there and you can consider it as an advantage for any recommendations. Like the restaurant recommendation was so excellent, we kept going there every night! Breakfast is really homemade... More

Ever since our first visit in February 2011, we have fallen for the charms and characters of this place, so much so that we decided to make it our home base. This must be our 5th visit, every time a wonderfully relaxing yet energising experience, with our 13-year old son or with friends. We love everything here – the chalet... More
