2nd time at Buqa
this is the second time we have stayed at buqa, so that in it self is saying enough.
both times we have stayed, we have arrived before the cleaners have finished (addicted snowboarder), but they have never had a problem with us turning up early.
they let us put all our baggage in the garage, get changed & handed us a key, so we could hit the slopes asap.
the place itself is about 5 min walk in to the town / first bar :) & the whole village & shops are reachable with about 10 mins.
if you like a warm up in the morning, to stretch those legs or clear you head from the night before, you can walk to the main station with 15 mins with full skiing gear & boots on & snowboard in hand.
or if want to catch the free ski bus it about the same distance as the 1st bar (5 mins)
the chalet is very modern looking, obviously french style wooden everything but with a english eye for detail.
clean & simple tiled floors, all with underfloor heating (amazing if you never tried it) all individually controlled.
all the bathrooms are clean simple in design, a good size & very functional.
the kitchen has a big chalet table for group / family meals & the kitchen is a large enough size for be doing all the cooking while entertaining / joining in the conversations.
the bedrooms are all a good size, not your average french chalet size (Compact and bijou!)
the beds sizes are generous to say the least, with all the pillows / bedding have the Buqa logo on them. a 42inch tv in each room & enough wardrobe / side table & draws space to fit the largest of kitchen sinks in if necessary.
the living room is large & spacey with a wood burning stove (always good to have a real fire & a beer after a hard day on the slopes) with a balcony which has an amazing view of the whole village & the mountain range down both sides of the valley... (this really is breath taking) plus due to the hight / elevation of the chalet, at night gives yet another amazing view with all the street lights.
if you like your tech & gadgets, these wi fi that reaches outside.
if you like movies there is a hard drive in each room (with a 42 in lcd tv..!!!) which is updated with new & old movies 500 +.
so in short, its got a great position & the facilities are fantastic.
the only thing left for me to do, is try it in the summer, so i can sit on the balcony with an ice cold beer getting a suntan & do some mountain biking, just need 5 other people who like 2 wheels...!!!!
