I have visited the Cavern twice and highly recommend it as being the perfect place for families to bond, relax, or play together. It is in a beautiful setting in the mountains and is staffed by delightful, friendly aand dignified people who provide excellent service while sharing their land with us. The food is included and is of very high standard. One can be as relaxed or as active as they like as there are comfortable lounges as well as horse riding, hiking etc. Being run by a family makes the resort feel like a home from home.
