We loved our stay, it was only for 3 nights. Veronique and her daughter Thessalia welcomed us and made us feel like home, they both gave us lots of advice and tips to visit places and restaurants. They really go for the extra mile and do this with lots of pleasure. We certainly come back. Btw breakfast is fantastic!

The house is centrally located within the small village with view on the beautiful valley. Our room was very nice, perfectly clean and with a super nice smell of...

This delightful b&b will make anyone's holiday complete. Thessalia is the perfect host and her attention to detail is second to none. Fabulous facilities throughout and nothing is any trouble to her to make your stay complete. If you do nothing else in life visit this place once ........you'll definitely return.

Wonderful place in a charming little village. Thessalia and Veronique go the extra mile to make ones stay memorable. A very welcoming arrival, nicely decorated rooms, the living room which makes you feel at home, the glass of wine at the fireplace and last but definitely not least the delicious food they bring to your table. Thessalia's deserts definitely deserve...

I first discovered this B&B via Trip Advisor two years ago when I was looking for accommodation near Leukerbad to celebrate my mothers birthday. We had a...

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...

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...

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...

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...
