You worry about everything: will it snow (can't control it), will the journey be boring (just drink wine in the bar carriage), will people get on (of course they will). Mainly you worry about the accommodation, but if you stay with Andy and Liza, you don't... more

Management response:

So happy you all enjoyed yourselves! Yes, 'Heartbreaker' is in there somewhere - you'll have to find it on your next visit, soon, we hope. Liza and Andy more

Christmas in the chalet with our friendly guests was magical for the hosts too! Thank you. more
