  • 5 star review  Wonderful stay. Loved feeling like we were the only people on the mountain. Couldn’t see any other cabins from were we stayed and absolutely loved it. Amazing view of the valley and the mountains. The drive up needs a 4x4 but was part of the experience and made us feel even more secluded.

  • 5 star review  First off you really do need a 4x4 to get here as there is a steep mountain ascent to get to the beautiful views! Don't be dumb and attempt it with a road car with low clearance. You'll get stuck on the mountain. We stayed in the third chalet (two double beds and two single beds). It is self catering. Five friends. It was so beautiful and peaceful here! Gorgeous views from the bathroom, patio, bedroom, and living room. You really are immersed in nature. The master bedroom is offset from the patio, with a shower with two huge glass windows looking out into the trees. There is also a cozy bay window opposite the double bed for reading books and just napping in full view of greenery. Really lovely master bedroom. The chalet came with a small fire pit area outside with seating. Possibly one of my favourite locations to chill as the side of the fire pit drops away to a lovely view. There is also a small dip pool a short drive away, really just for cooling off on a very hot day. The area around the pool was a little disappointing as the pool area could do with some outdoor furniture and shade/gazebo to spruce it up and make it comfortable. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Would come back for a long weekend.
