Mountain holidays aren't just restricted to skiing and snowboarding in winter - Summer bring plenty of opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
Mountain biking, hiking, lake swimming and watersports are among the opportunities for the energetic. Or if you're after a more sedate break, then there are lakeside beaches to relax on, flora and fauna for nature lovers, or just enjoy the fresh mountain air and the stunning scenery.
Have a break from the coast this summer and head for the mountains...

I always discuss with new guests the limitations of the flat with regard to wheelchair users - we are on the ground floor and it is quite easy to access the flat and great for those with limited mobility to watch the passers by and boats etc in the bay - however we are not a disability flat, we have only standard width doors etc. and yes the bathroom is difficult for those who have no ability to walk but we have provided grab rails and the bathroom is large enough for a wheelchair to get into.
The previous guests advised us the microwave was broken and I immediately ordered another one. My caretaker provided one of his own for the guests to use so they would not suffer without one and when my new one arrived he replaced it at the next changeover so as not to disturb them. The keysafe was not known to be broken and when we checked it it was working properly but it has now been replaced for security.
