The menagerie of animals living on the premises made the situation even more idyllic. Helene was adorable, amazingly helpful in any way possible, and made our disappointingly short stay very, very enjoyable. Would highly recommend and will most definitely be returning in the future.

We went there primarily for skiing, and it was perfect for this, as you just had a short 5 min walk trough the city to the main gondola lift.After skiing it was so nice to get back to the apartment for a warm bath in the tub or a card game on the deck or in the living room, where you could enjoy the sunset over the mountains. Close by was a really nice italian restaurant that Terri recommended, called La Rustica. They served the best pizzas and risottos! The apartment has a very nice atmosphere, and everything was clean and in good order. Kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of space. There was loads of fun activities in walking distance including; skiing (slalom and cross country), spa and swimming, hiking, ice skating, shopping and a farmers market on fridays. If you want a fun night out, we can highly recommend Max's pub on wednesday where they had kareoke. The alpine ski area was a really nice, lots of pists, stunning views and not to crowded. Finally Terri was a really nice host that helped us with everything we needed to know and had lots of good tips on restaurants and the area in general. Definitely staying here again!
