I don’t think I can remember a place that offers so much for so little and I’m going to have to hurry along to mention everything. Chalet Romantica marches into this book simply for Ed and Inge whose warm natures and dedication to their guests mean the battle is won before the warships set sail.....

.... Bedrooms all have sea-facing balconies, firm beds, crisp linen, strong massage showers with adjustable heads, fridge, music-player, microwave, dial-out phone, TV, VCR, bathrobes, small bottle of bubbly, fresh flowers. Breakfast is Swiss-style which means soft-boiled eggs, muesli, cheese, yoghurt, different types of bread… but less Swissish dishes like eggs Benedict or bacon and eggs are also on the cards. There is a small swimming pool inside the house with an exerjet system that drives a current against which you can swim for fitness. They have "a bit of a farm" with goats and two acres of land and you can walk from the house into the bush. One of the most impressive B&Bs I’ve ever visited and extraordinary good value. More is more. And let's not forget the Chelsea Bride, the Amslers' 42-foot charter boat, which is described on the next page.
