Spacious and comfortable apartment with everything you need

5 of 5
This was the best ski accommodation we have every stayed in - with plenty of space for the family to relax and comfortable beds in all bedrooms and the property was spotlessly clean. Great views of the slopes on the other side of the valley from the living room and balcony. An extra bonus that the beds are made on arrival. We met Julia on arrival who was also very helpful during our stay when we had a minor problem. The apartment is about 10 mins walk downhill to the village centre with plenty of shops and restaurants and about 5 mins walk to the slope. We would definitely love to go back!
