Guestbook comments from the manager
"We had a lovely week in the Old Library in Argentiere. The appartment was very clean, warm and comfortable with all the equipment we required and more - never thought we'd need such a big telly, but we still used it! It was extremely convenient for groceries and ski hire, souveniers etc as the shops are 50m away. The walk to the bus stop was not too onerous either - about 5 mins. The welcome and administration was excellent. The only thing we'd like to recommend is some extra shelves in the kitchen area. Otherwise we had a super week and would definitely consider going there again."
