Beautiful location siding onto woodland and facing open fields with stunning mountain views. Great storage space for ski equipment. Resort of La Joue du Loup was very friendly and safe for the children. Plenty of choice to eat out. Well stocked food shop. Lovely gift shops. Ski school was excellent with english speaking instructors, plus good choice of ski hire shops.
