The house was really clean, kitchen-living room was cosy and the terrace was nice. The location in the hill was really quiet and not so far from nearest village center. Absolutely a place to visit again someday - both Savoie region and the chalet ''Refuge des p'tits loups".

The apartment had all we needed, is very accurately described on the website and was clean and tidy for our arrival. It proved a great base for outdoor activities and sight-seeing but also has plenty of internal and external space for those stay-at-home days, and the swimming pool was the icing on the cake for an end of a hot day dip. Gillian was most responsive to queries we had and we intend to return :-)
