Stayed two nights in these smallish but well appointed cabins. Staff were efficient and friendly. Wifi was terrible but worked. The area is quiet and we had a view to the mountains which was lovely. Pretty good value as you get what you pay for.More

Stayed for one night in these quirky cottages. Good location and well equipped comfortable individual chalets. Parking was a bit tight especially if our neighbour had had a large car. Overall though somewhere I would stay again.
