 Fabulous house, really huge, plenty of space for a family of 7 including 2 x sets of twins and a granny. Loved the décor and plenty for everyone to do. Ideal location and just up from the hot pools. Really warm with all the lovely radiators. Would definitely stay here again. 

 This was our 4th time staying at the Post Office, the place is looking great with some tidying and painting since our last visit. We were inside a lot of the time with the weather but had a comfortable and relaxing time 

 Cool property, love the genuine bach feel and history of the place. 

 Thanks :) Would definately consider using again during the ski season. Also would be nice to have to radiators on a lil earlier as it was a tad cold rained half the weeknd jad heaters going all night and day when we were inside. 

 Great character. Provides everything you need and more. Nice and close to thermal pools and great spa pool. Lovely church next door, plenty of space, lovely outdoor area. My two year old loved it!! As did all the grown ups
