We swapped some of our timeshare points for an apartment on the ground floor with a gate a few yards away leading to a pleasant walk in a wood. We were pleased to be able to take our dog (slept in his cage) at a cost of £25. Our apartment had new carpets, kitchen with quality utensils/pans and dishwasher, LCD TV, a very uncomfortable sofabed (when used as a sofa) in pine with foam cushions, two single beds and bunks in a small room meaning that it actually could sleep 4-6 although it would be cramped. The re-fitted bathroom had only a shower, basin and WC but they all worked well. Some units are due to be updated later in the year. We viewed a 'villa' (terraced house on two floors) and were impressed with the size. It was to receive new carpets later in the year.
We considered buying a timeshare, presented with the reasonably priced units on a list on arrival however we will wait a while until the local Tesco moves to a new site very near the complex and some housing over the fence to the Scandinavian Village is built so see how it affects the quality of holidays. Maintenance prices are not bad at all. We expect to return at a similar time next year to view the ospreys nearby and wonderful countryside and mountains. For those who need to know, there is a dog bin by the stream in the wood! We found it by accident.
A point of interest: there is no pool, sauna, meeting room etc on site. We were able to pay to use one nearby or use a pool in another town through a leisure scheme, free of charge. Check this out if you are going to stay there in case it changes.
