 We stayed in the bach with five adults to do the Crossing and LOVED it. Great bach, awesome facilities, lovely interior, very clean and with an awesome front deck to have breakfast/drinks on. The booking, getting in etc was all seamless. Highly recommend this bach and we will absolutely be back.

Beautifully Appointed Swiss Chalet

 What a stunning home!!! We loved staying here and had many conversations about the craftsmanship that had gone into building your swiss chalet. Great location, views of the mountain from the dining table and we didn't need to clean at the end of our stay. Thanks so much.
