United Kingdom

“Great accommodation! take a chalet at the river, the only difference with a luxe chalet is that you don't have a television and you need one because you have live television in front of you were the river is with the hippo's. You car relax on your terras and watch the show! the rooms are clean, big, on their own so no attached neighbors. And close to Perry's bridge with the shops and restaurants. We will definitely return. Hopefully they don't raise the price because it's perfect!”
