Nice appartment

  • 4 out of 5
We (3 adults, 2 children) liked this appartment very much. Although we had to travel by a (free) bus to ski, this was no problem.
The appartment was new and clean. I would certainly recommend it.

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second time in Simon and Corine's apartment and it's just fabulous. The location is great, the facilities within the apartment are first class. Simon's communication is excellent. We self drove from the UK and then drove to Pre Le Joux every day - if I stopped skiing early it's easy to get the free bus back to the village and then a 10 minute walk from the bus station.

I would highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent value apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a weeks stay at this lovely apartment. The apartment was very clean and tidy and was very easy to find (we traveled to Chatel by car and the journey took 9 ½ hours from Calais). The apartment is very well located being an easy 10 minute walk into Chatel, which is a lovely traditional village which has plenty of very good restaurants. We found that the local people were all very friendly and helpful, which was great.

We used the car to travel to the ski slopes at Pre La Joux each morning which is about a 10-15 minute drive. There is a free ski bus if you prefer not to take the car. The skiing from here was excellent for the time of year.

We normally stay in a hotel when we go on a ski holiday and haven't stayed in an apartment for many years, but we found the whole experience much more relaxing and peaceful and the views from the bedroom and kitchen/lounge area are amazing.

We will definitely be returning to this apartment and can recommend it to anyone without hesitation.

Finally, thank you to Simon and Corinne who made the booking experience so easy.

Snowboarding Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was really nice, excellent position with brilliant views of the valley out of the window. The apartment was everything you could want from a location and very clean.
Access to the slopes is excellent with good transport links in the area for the different resorts. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a holiday in the area.

Fabulous apartment in a superb location

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is just fabulous. We stayed as a family of 4 the week before Christmas 2011. There are 2 double bedrooms and a "cabin" room which my son (aged 11) just loved. Our daughter had the double with the ensuite and my husband and I had the room with the balcony and the superb view. The kitchen has most things you'll need. I cooked every evening and it was almost a pleasure. Having the covered car area is a bonus as we stored our skis in the roof box. We did have the dig the front of the car out most mornings (where the snowplough had been down) but having it covered meant we didn't have to de-snow the whole car.

Although it's walkable to the Super Chatel ski life we drove to either Linga or Pre Le Joux - but did need our ski chains on most days.

There is a supermarket in the town which has most things but we went to the large one just outside the town and did a big shop. Just bought the daily baggette from the bakers.

Communication from Simon was excellent and the final details together with the key were sent in plenty of time and were very comprehensive.

We loved it so much have booked for January 2013!

A very Warm Week

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great week at this apartment and found it to be really wonderful. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, with lovely furnishings and (most importantly) very comfy beds!
It's a short walk from the main lift in Chatel and has suberb views from the huge balcony. Skied every day but was very warm, icy in the morning and very slushy by the afternoon.

Simon and Coriine have been super-helpful, friendly and an absolute delight to deal with. Thanks so much for a lovely holiday.
