Things to see
Especially in the Spring or Autumn it is very beautiful here, with either the trees being full of blossom or the leaves turning in bright reds or yellows. You can hike up to over 2000 meters above sea level and the views are amazing! There might even still be a bit of snow to be seen!

Looks like an Austrian style home. Very nice and comfy. It's a home! Great staff! They did try to put 5 women in 1 Japanese style room...since I'm short, I slept in the closet. Best sleep I ever had!

Very cosy, treehouse style house with a Dutch windmill! Not as modern as K's House, but still really cool, inviting and nice. The owners are the sweetest! They made a big BBQ fire for us!
