Easy access to the chair lift for walking and skiiing and also easy access to the local roads for cycling. The standard of accommodation was very high and good sized bedrooms and living area. Highly recommended for walkng skiing and cycling holidays

The listing didn't do this place justice, it is beautiful. The owners are lovely people who had thought of everything. The response time from the owner was very quick and extremely helpful. The village and surrounding area is just amazing. I would recommend it to anyone.

The chalet is full of character and although completely renovated it has been tastefully done. We were a party of 9 adults and three children and the 6 bedrooms were perfect for our needs as was the kitchen, dining area and 'cave' for evening relaxation. Villard Reculas is a quaint village where you can totally unwind. Would we go back? Tomorrow if we could. None of us are wanted to leave, the men loved the variety of routes they could cycle and the proximity of the famous 21 bends of Alps d'Heuz. Even the little ones wanted to stay, so much around the area for them to do. Loved the chalet, the area and the fab weather we had!
