For us this included letting us have the keys early as we arrived in resort and getting us towels from her house as the laundrette had closed! Chalet is on the 3rd floor with no lift. Not a problem for us but may be for others.beutiful views, well situated in the quieter end of resort. 100m ish walk to the free bus stop for the ski lift as there was no snow at the bottom. Shop very close for all food, a couple of lovely bars and restaurants very close or again jump on the free bus into the heart of the resort. La Patate was the closest and great food at a good price. We were tempted by the rotisserie chicken at a shop not far - don't bother €19! Crepes a go go and les spot (English run - build your own burger - among others) were other good restaurants we found. Bowling was great family fun although at the other end of town. Chalet itself has everything you need for a week away. Great storage in the garage boot room. 3 bedrooms with enough storage, washing machine (meaning we brought few dirty clothes back), balconies to see the views. Make sure you take slippers as the floor is very cold! We used first trax ski school for our boys who were fantastic - they are the ones where you pick your key up from. Small groups unlike if you book with ESF or other big company. Our boys were in a group of 3 and made lots of progress. Would definitely go again!

Can't wait to return. Definitely recommend to all.

It was only about ten minutes walk to the main square and Jandri lift. There was also a very friendly check in service who were also able to provide our ski passes etc. Thoroughly recommended, in fact I have recommended to a friend already!
