The kitchen was well equipped and looked new. Storage was well thought out and plenty of cupboards to store stuff out of the way. Fairly easy ski in, ski out. Not for total beginners but fine otherwise, local bus and car are easy alternatives to the slopes and main lifts. We really enjoyed our stay.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Ski-ing easily accessible and the kids had a great week at ESF. The chalet has everything you could need and Anthony and Sheilah were so welcoming and helpful. We would highly recommend it.

Carole was very accommodating for our late arrival. In the description it mentions Internet access as a facility -this is not the case as you have to pay a fee for it. The owner could have been quicker in responding to questions but overall we enjoyed our stay.
