A cosy appartment that slept 4 adults in a great location close to the slopes. The rooms were very warm so we had to keep the window open, but then could hear people on the street coming home from the night club in the middle of night. Très chouette appartement, espace bien réparti et bien situé dans la station. Nous regrettons seulement l'absence de balcon et l'absence d'internet gratuit.

We were on the first floor right in the thick of the action. Easy to ski down to lifts, walk to restaurants/bars/shops and ski right back to the door. The apartment is fairly basic but had everything we needed. The balcony was a lovely addition. I was after accommodation with a nice balcony where I could watch the world go by. This apartment was perfect in that respect with a first floor balcony and glass covered area with more shelter for the evening ( where we moved the dinning table to ) great views and people watching. This is the good news bad news is that I needed this because I was unable to ski due to a major knee accident and I also need a hip replacement. problem was , was that it was very difficult to find and then use the drop off point for the luggage which was not helped by the bilizzard and need for snow chains to even try and get the car near . There is only one lift for six floors which was always busy and since I could not use the stairs I could not unpack or pack the car and we were even late checking out ( sorry for the pots not being put away ) . So in summary great place just don't use it if you are old and knackered like me.

A basic level room for 4 people. Key collection just to the left of the front door and right next to the car park P2. Only gripe was the room was for 4 people but only 3 beds fit for purpose. The 4th bed was some chip board on some shelving with no was to get on it. Clean and compact. Suitable for 4 people looking for a simple basic, no frills room. Het appartement is (zeer) karig uitgevoerd en erg klein voor vier personen. als je er alleen wil slapen is het prima, verder mag je er niets van verwachten.

Right by the slopes, supermarkets, ski hire shops, tourist info etc. Great location, you can even ski back for lunch to save money. However, the bunk bed ladder was almost falling off on one side, and there were no instructions on how to use the oven/grill thing which was quite tricky to work out. Also spent 1/2 hr looking for duvets and pillows at 9.30pm before having to ring to say they weren't there. Cupboard they were in appears locked as it jams shut. Had to force it open with a knife when I was told where they were! Suited one adult and child. Bit cosy for 4 people, I imagine. And I ordered towels which weren't there, but luckily used swim towels I had bought, as office not open till Monday. Mostly accommodation block was quiet at night.

Appartement petit mais bien agencé et propre. La situation est idéale dans une rue piétonne avec toutes les commodités à moins de 50 m! Le seul point négatif est en rapport avec les ascenseurs. Il n'y a seulement que 2 ascenseurs pour un immeuble assez grand quand même, donc aux heures de pointes (rentrée et sortie de ski), il était courant d'attendre jusqu'à 5 minutes pour avoir un ascenseur. De plus comme nous n'avions qu'une clef pour le local de ski et que la famille ne skie pas toute ensemble, il faut faire des aller-retour en ascenseur local ski-appartement pour gérer la clef du local de ski .... pas très cool. Il faut absolument avoir au minimum 2 clef pour le local de ski
