I travelled alone so had plenty space. Comfy bed. If I read the description I would have been aware linen & towels were not provided but was soon sorted by Corinne. All in all very good. Was hoping to come back in a few weeks but the apartment is fully booked. Will hopefully get back one day. Boot room / locker is not the biggest if there was 4 of you using it.

Great view of the mountains from the balcony. All in all a very pleasant stay and Cathy was extremely helpful with everything. The small restaurant directly opposite the car park entrance was good and also provided excellent take away pizzas.
