Lovely Chalet and Good Location

5 of 5
We stayed in Chalet Dunedin - although not huge it is big enough with plenty of room for 8 adults. The chalet is lovely and clean and very modern. There is a lovely view and the apartment was well heated. It was quite ski in / ski out. A nice touch is the fluffy towels, slippers and complimentary toiletries. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Although the chalet is located uphill from town (about 15 mins walk), there is a bus (blue) which runs about every 5-10 minutes all day long, which you can catch from the bus turning / pick up circle.
