Wow 👌 what an amazing place to visit. It is sooo peaceful that the wild animals walk around the chalets. You need a lot of Redbull for the super tubes if you slide once you will never stop, it is sooo much fun!! The chalets are cleane comfy and fully stock with all the kitchen equipment. I will definitely give them 10000000000 stars. What a great break away from the busy citi life for the whole family, where the kids can enjoy themselves from sun up to sun down, and mom and dad can have a relaxing getaway. All in all on of the best places we visited. Will be visiting again soon.

Great little setup away from the city rush for a family getaway surrounded by the silence and beauty of the nature with lots to do for small & big kids including the dads for fishing the dams with a variety of fish in the area.
