Fantastic chalet

5 of 5
Le coq noir was a fantastic chalet located in conveniently for the slopes and also the hub at 1850. The chalet is classical in style. It had everything you could need appliances, utensils and a well stocked games cupboard. The views were amazing from the rear. We had a great time and would absolutely stay here again. Many thanks to Mr Eurin for providing this property.
