In easy reach of Le Praz, but as we had a car we found that the best option was to drive to Courchevel 1650. We were late in the ski season so Le Paz was a little diffificult to return to. At Courchevel you can park directly under the gondola station, which although a little pricey was by far the easiest option. With the car Meribele is also a good option. The Chalet was cozy with a log burning stove and excellent Wi-Fi . There was also an excellent selection of books and games to entertain us. The kitchen was extremely well-equipped including a stone raclette set which we all enjoyed using . Car parking was excellent with space for at least two cars. The ski locker in the boot room was within easy reach of the car and the heated boot racks were considerably appreciated . Bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed and of good size and there was plenty of hot water. All in all an excellent base for a fantastic holiday!
