What a beautiful, peaceful wine estate!
Our chalet overlooked the mountains covered in snow and the lake which had attracted many different species of birds. We could see the sheep grazing about 100 metres away in a paddock and a few lambs came a bit closer.
When booking I enquired about restaurants and was referred to three different ones with a short and accurate (as we later discovered) description of them. The reception was lovely, the chalet was tastefully decorated with a huge bed. We even got our own slippers! The bathroom was lovely (separate basins which was very nice) and there were bath salts and bubble bath to choose from too. Alluvia even provided bathrobes.
The chalet was lovely and warm with its own fireplace, if we chose to use it. There was a bar fridge with all sorts of drinks to choose from, not all alcoholic, as well as chocolates. There was also a TV in the wall cabinet which you could pull out and watch from the lounge area near the fireplace or the bed.
Breakfast was delivered in a basket the next morning (we were asked what time would suit us) and it was lovely - fresh warm croissants, moist muffins and a lovely variety of muesli, fruit and yoghurt served separately in Tupperware so we could mix our own. There was also a big jug of fresh fruit juice in the basket. There was a variety of coffee, tea and hot chocolate to choose from in the chalet as well.
I will definitely return to Alluvia. We had a wonderful stay.
