To my knowledge, the chalets are for 2 persons - with huge beds. I know they are building new chalets, so perhaps they have considered families for the new ones.

"Give C5 a try, but every chalet is good"
"all chalets are similar, we had 5 and 6"
"Lodges with C in front them - very quiet!"

"I don't think a choice is necessary. All of the chalets are detached and not overlooked."
