Clean and comfortable, nice location.

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this small but well equipped apartment. It was clean and comfortable. Well located near a small supermarket and playground in the centre of the village. There were plenty of film options on the telly and some board games to play for rainy days. We were concerned about the deposit that had to be paid by cash or cheque in euros, however, this all worked out and we received it all back at the end of our stay. We were also surprised that bed linen and towels were not included in the rental fee, there was an extra change for it, but it seems this is the norm for this area. The owners were quick to answer any questions, however their cancellation policy was not clear, and we did not receive it despite emailing to request as per the Homeaway website advice, all other questions were answered promptly. Overall, all went smoothly with our stay, and the location is beautiful and the apartment is reasonably priced for the area.

Loved it so much we came back again :)

5 of 5
We had such a great time here in January we came back again to catch the end of the ski season in March. Once again, Chez Amis didn't disappoint. Just like last time, the place was welcoming and ready for us. We laughed at the other review pointing out the small toilet - you really don't need to spend much time in there! It's absolutely fine :) Grand Massif still has a lot to offer in the late season, particularly the snow higher up in Flaine which you can access from the local lift in Morillon. As it got warmer down in the valley we loved spending time at Lac Bleu. When you're in ski gear up the mountain in the morning and shorts and a t-shirt by the lake in the afternoon you know you're in a special place! We're already planning to come back again in the early summer once the snow has gone. Thanks again Chez Amis
