Our Chalets 1 and Chalet 3:

An authentic farm experience with the possibility of engaging with our gentle giant Percheron called Galleon, awaits you and your family. Located on either side of The Lodge, 2 identical riverside chalets sleep 8 each.

“We don’t need a fancy resort to help us reconnect. We just need to sneak away from all this chaos and find a quiet place where we can play in the river, watch the sunset, kiss under the stars and go to bed smelling like sunshine, campfire & true love.” – Brooke Hampton


2 bedrooms sleeping 4 people, and can be configured to twin or kingsize beds.
A full bathroom plus a separate shower and a separate toilet.

Adjacent to a fully equipped kitchenette is an open-plan dining and sitting room in the center of which is a freestanding fireplace.


4 single beds accommodate guests on a mezzanine floor with dormer windows with views of the mountain.


Each chalet has its own private fire pit.
Overlooking the river, they are suitable for cooking under the stars in fair weather. They are built from the bricks salvaged from chalet 2 when it burnt down.

What people are saying


The location was great! Easy to find but far enough off of the beaten track to enjoy the peace and quiet.
We loved the lake and rowing through the little canals to get there. Seeing some birds near the lake was a special treat. The hike up Crocodile Hill was short but delightful. The kitchen had all the equipment necessary for good food preparation. The beds were comfortable and ample additional blankets were available.
Finally, Farouk remains one of the best hosts I’ve encountered!

Wonderful secluded and peaceful location, with a charming chalet and view of the lake. Farouq the manager is super helpful and friendly and made me feel very welcome. The perfect nature stop off if you want to recharge and be still.

Tranquility in the midst of mountains and lakes

Everything 🙂 Such a peaceful environment surrounded by the lakes and mountains. We particularly enjoyed sitting by a fireplace in the evening and hearing all the nature sounds. It was soooo refreshing and relaxing. And of course, not forget to mention Farouk. He was so friendly, welcoming and going an extra mile in accommodating our needs. We’ll be back for sure! 🙂
