There are six large bedrooms that offer unbridled views of the fantastic alpine villages down below, as well as of the beautiful valley laid out in front of it.
The living room comes with a beautiful fireplace while the kitchen is reminiscent of the way the Swiss built their Chalets. Each room comes with a double bed with four rooms having ensuite bathrooms and the remaining two sharing a common shower room. All rooms have plenty of space to store our mountain equipment.
