a short review, a few comments

Hello , I stayed in house 3. As I have rated above I was quite content, but I have a comment to make: I could not sleep well because of the noise from barking dogs somewhere:this might become a real problem, since Monterosa is meant for rest and relaxation. Furthermore, one small point: it would be nice to have the programme witl all the activitities in the house;I did not see it. That is all, Groetjes! Francine.

The most relaxed and happy I have been in a long time.

I came to Monte Rosa to get away from everything and focus on myself. This has been the perfect setting for me to do so. To say it is beautiful there is not giving it credit. Its a magical place that projects nature and life from every corner. Ive relaxed by the pool and had yoga sessions or massages on quiet days. When ive needed a little excitement I went to more than 10 different beaches, all close by and learnt how to surf for the first time. Because I was alone the administartor there took me on a beautiful hike along the mountains of the coast and really made sure I was happy along the way. I felt at home even if it was just for 2 weeks. Monte Rosa provides a little bit of everything in a gorgeous space. Im definitely going back.
