Budget meal tip

Only one (negative) remark: We did not bring food with us to cook in the well equipped kitchen, and the next shop is 12 km away down in the valley. So we had to find a restaurant for dinner. There is only one possibility to eat (in the Hotel nearby) which was very expensive. So I advise everybody to take food along!
