"Only when you experience this GEM for real, in person, not on a website, can the beauty of this place be justified. I'm so glad we did not go with the every-day commercialized options for accommodation and found this place! The warmth of the hosts, the surrounding beauty of mountains - the incredible breakfast and supper, the view, the activities, horse riding experience, the cosy cottage with such beauty - everything left us in awe! We will most definitely come back and refer our friends and family!"
