The kitchen was well equipped and looked new. Storage was well thought out and plenty of cupboards to store stuff out of the way. Fairly easy ski in, ski out. Not for total beginners but fine otherwise, local bus and car are easy alternatives to the slopes and main lifts. We really enjoyed our stay.

Plus points - warm, plenty of hot water, good Wi-Fi, very convenient for the big Diable lift, supermarket and bakers shops within a couple of minutes walk. Easy key pick up/drop off. Shower pressure was a bit feeble, which also meant it took fifteen minutes to run a bath, but that was easy enough to live with. Similarly the TV/DVD set up had seen better days, but you can take a laptop if you want to get through the box sets in the evenings. In summary this flat is a good ski flat that we enjoyed staying in, and would happily return to.
