The day starts with as much delicious breakfast as you can eat. If you leave the breakfast table with even a small corner left to fill, then it's your own fault.
We spent our days skiing or touring the area and arrived back to plates of nibbles and glasses of wine. A soak in the hot tub soothed away the aches of the day.
Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts - "you're on holiday" was all I heard when I tried to do pretty much anything for myself.
I urge you to take advantage of the home-cooked evening meals. It's unlikely you've eaten that well anywhere else on your trip.
And then you can relax in the lounge in front of a roaring log-burning stove or watch TV or one of the DVDs, or borrow a book, or play one of the board games, or take advantage of the free wifi. Whatever you want, before going to sleep in your super-comfy bed.
I cannot think of anything that would have made this a better place to stay.
