Unfortunately we didn't get the same chalets as the previous occasion. Despite having booked months beforehand, they were unable to allocate a room and even kept my sister waiting until 14.00 to enter when the chalets must have been clean. These chalets have also become rather expensive over the years. Nonetheless, the location is wonderful, and you can go on fantastic walks and eat either in the restaurant (not bad) or have braai's (BBQ), all fantastic. Take your own food etc as it is very pricey at the small store. It's also probably a good idea, in winter, to take some of your own wood for the wood burning fires if you are staying more than a night. It's pretty cold (very!) at night in winter, but potentially wonderful during the day. The type of place that one feels, as a writer, you'd like to hang out in. Make sure you get a chalet that has a potential view. They do occasionally have local dance groups coming in to dance, it's a shame they don't advertise them more so that local people could make more out of tourism.
