The chalet was very clean, comfortable and well furnished - everything you would expect of a Swiss B&B. It was the little things that really made the difference - Ian and Julie are really friendly people and extremely hospitable. Although it is a B&B, there is a small kitchen for guest use - absolutely ideal for those on a restricted diet (or budget). A coffee machine in the common area, a kettle in the room, good WiFi, a wide selection of TV channels (including the main English channels), good parking... really hard to fault!
The chalet is about 1km from the town centre, so there is a bit of a walk to shops and restaurants (nice walk, good views). There is virtually no traffic past the chalet and it is extremely quiet.
Ian is an International Mountain Leader and leads snow show walks in the winter. We had 5 days of guided walking which were generally off the beaten track and included advice on snow conditions, avalanches and animal tracks. Highly recommended.
