FCR is amazing, very clean and inviting cabin. We stayed in cabin 8 with our 2 dogs and we all had a fantastic time, one night was not enough! Already thinking about when we will be back!

Our stay at The Resort was an excellent break from summer. We stayed in French style villa, cottage no. 8 and the mountains views and location were amazing.

Beautiful location far from the maddening crowd and yet not far away. Our hosts were very welcoming & friendly with loads of information about the area. And of course and just as important to us was our 4 legged baby loved it.

Cabin was a great size and flat making it easy and safe to navigate with two broken wrists. View from balcony and lounge were green rolling hills with more dramatic peaks behind them. Very peaceful and great for staying in or getting out and around. Bring all you need and the full size fridge accommodates all goodies. Cleanest and best maintained accommodation we have stayed at.
