Goes a long way meeting the ambitions of the people who created it
Leonidas P,
Tripadvisor review Feb 13 2019
It is obvious that a lot of investment and labor went into creating this mountain resort out of old village housing mostly. The result, however, justifies the effort. Accommodation is tastefully...

The room was lovely, clean and high class. The staff very nice. The spa high class and great facial treatment, although a bit expensive. Breakfast was super tasty and dinner in the hotel restaurant...
