It does occasionally happen that local wildlife takes residence in your chalet. You may find a gecko, frog or evidence of the above. Those creatures are harmless but we gladly remove them for you.
Check In & Out
“Whatever comes – let it come, Whatever stays – let it stay, Whatever goes – let it go” – we are very flexible with our check in and check out times, however if we are fully booked and in need of your room we might ask you to check out by latest 12h00 and we will give you a day room to store your luggage and have a shower before you leave

Our staff is here to ensure that your experience is exceptional. Should you feel that you would like to leave a tip, an amount of your choice can be left in the tip box at the bar. The collections are equally shared between all staff members, also the ones “in the background”, as they are just as deserving as the staff you are dealing with directly. We would like to highlight that tips are completely at your discretion.
