          The chalet was lovely and cosy. It was clean. We thought the 2 bedroom chalet would be big, just like the one that we had before. They forgot the pillow, blanket and towel for the fifth person. But thats okay. Overall, it was nice and look forward to stay there again. Cant wait for summer
