    They have roads leading to the cottages and car can be parked there. Roads are small as it would be in hilly area and the areas of cottages is also not very far from Main area so once parked you can easily walk around.

    Chail can get a bit hot in May but evenings should be pleasant. They don't include any meals in the deal however there is room service available and one can order food a la cartè.
