Visitor Reviews of Tiffindell
Dr Stevan Vukasinovic from South Africa writes:
I did ski in Serbia where I was born. I liked it there. Weather is warmer, rooms are warm, food is good and the instructors are very helpful. Unforgettable experience. One doesn't need to go all the way to Europe and spend a lot of Euros.
