Our friendly host Nico made us feel very welcome, and we had a great couple of days walking around the farm and surrounding mountain paths.
The chalet was simple but comfortable and neat, very pleasant. The only problem was a very weak refrigerator which barely keep the contents cool, never mind cold...quite a problem in hot weather.
Generally a great stay, thank you very much!
