                                                                                                      5 of 5

The interior is lovely, really homely and also stylish and it is really well equipped. Position wise it is great, right at the top of the building, on its own, meaning you do do not hear anything else and they hopefully didnt hear us. It has great views down over the main street, and so easy to get everywhere, shops restaurants and the slopes are either 5 mins walk or a v. quick bus hop. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

As the previous reviewers have made clear, it is absolutely outstanding. I have been coming to Val for over 30 years,staying in a variety of accomodation during that time ie s/c,hotels,chalets,however this apartment is something special. First of all,the views! An entire wall is a window,so to speak,with a stunning view of the entire village,Solaise slopes and Le Fornet to the left and the Charvet and Bellevarde to the right.At night, the view is mesmerising,with the lights of the village and occasional firework display.I would particularly recommend sitting in the living room at night with the lights out,looking down on the village - stunning.If you look out the bedroom window to the rear,you look towards La Daille. The apartment has been very tastefully finished,has every appliance/amenity you would have in your own home,is spacious,unlike every other French s/c apartment I have stayed in, and was immacutely clean on each of my arrivals.The apartment is perfectly positioned within the resort,being within 4 minutes walk to the main shops and bars, and bustops for both directions being immediately outside tha apartment block. Gregor,the owner,is a delight to deal with and when he states in his description of his apartment that he worked in Val for many years,during which time he searched for,and found,the perfect apartment,he is not exaggerating. As an historical aside, Jean Claude Killy,the most successful ever French skier, lived in this same apartment block in his formative years.
