Important to know

You cannot reach the house by car.

The closest place for food shopping is down in the village. It’s therefore important to plan your shopping well. Milk and cheese (and sometimes eggs) can be bought from the farmers on the alp (5 – 10 minutes walking distance from the house).

The house has a wood stove, which you will need to light yourself in the winter.
