The supermarket a few minutes walk and a spa two minutes away. We loved this place. Plus Siobahn makes everything so easy and is a wonderful hostess. All in all, I cannot recommend this highly enough as a great place for family ski holiday (but please don't book it when we want to go next time!)

Any questions we had were answered immediately and accommodation info was very good. Made good use of the spa and pool after skiing too. The agent was reliable and attentive. We found the skiing perfect for beginners with very well organised lessons. The slopes were a bit limited for good intermediate skiers but as a family resort it is perfect. We were happy to do the same runs all week because everything else was so good. On the last night we went to a restaurant called Bodenhaus at the end of the valley (taken up the mountain on a tractor!) and then tobogganed down to our car after the meal. A great way to end a fantastic week.
