    During the winter months for skiing the hotel is directly opposite the ski lift. It is also within walking distance of the centre.

    Absolutely nothing.

    The hotel meets enterely 5 stars rating. Spatious, claen, rooms and bathroom. Confortable beds. Excelent service, regular cleaning twice per day. The spa center is fabulous. Gym center also. Small details but important, on each fitness equipment there was a towel. Water with lemon available in it. And of course the breakfast: simply excelllent: both cold and warm dishes. Again small details but iportant: home made chocolate - fabulous. The presence of chief, making eggs in the morning was also somehow cosy: we felt like in home.
