Great location

4 of 5
Great location. Able to ski in and out near nursery slopes. Short walk to the Spar shop and ski rental. Flat is small but nice and has everything you need. It would be too small if my husband also went but perfect for me and two small children. Not much storage room and limited parking. Owner very helpful and replies quickly to any queries. Would definitely come again with the 3 of us.
