It was our first time in the chalets. We normally visit the private ablution camp site, but will most definitely stay in the chalets again.

Sondela is a family, sport oriented getaway. As a family we highly recommend a visit, especially if you love cycling, trial running and love animals. The service is of a very high standard and will recommend to family and friends

We booked a spur of the moment getaway to Sondela. The campsite we booked had its own private bathroom which was great, although after locking it from the outside we couldn't open it again. We had to play "burglar" at 5 in the morning and climb through the window to unlock the door from the inside. The campsite is very...
