Comfortable and conveniently located apartment.

5 of 5
We've stayed here before and having two double bedrooms it's ideal for two adult couples - difficult to find apartments that aren't purely geared towards families. It's well equipped, a real home from home with uk tv, dvd and wi-fi. The ski lift is just a short trudge and gives access to a large ski area. I'm sure we'll return.

A nice apartment, in a beautiful setting

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our weeks stay, the skiing was excellent, and the apartment perfect. The heated ski locker was great, you had lovely dry equipment each morning, on the edge of the slopes. The town is a little quiet, but this was not a problem for us. The owner was very nice, and helped us out when we forgot bed linen! Would recommend this property to anyone.
