Although the host describes the property as a “cottage,” this eight-person guest house is more like a chalet! It is tastefully decorated and comes with modern furnishings and appliances for your convenience. One of its special features is the hot tub where you can soak in after a long day out on the slopes. Furthermore, the guest house is in a fantastic location, with ski lifts, restaurants, and souvenir shops all less than 100 meters (328 feet) away.
