“Pleasantly surprised, tranquility at its best” My only feedback here would be to put seat cushions on the chairs when dining outside as the wooden slatted chairs can become uncomfortable when sitting over the course of dinner, staff too tend to rush your dinner
one of the mattresses in Chalet 1 needs replacing, its boating

Food, especially breakfast is their stand out feature, lovely coffee, homemade muffins and crunchies, and the bliksem (chili) sausage on the breakfast is so different, dinners too where excellent
