The appartment is beautifully appointed with virtually everything you could need. The master bedroom is very comfortable, lounge/dinner, whilst not large is also great with dinning table that extends to sit six - only four chairs, but I'm sure if needed the owners downstairs would lend you more! There is also a sofa bed downstairs and two beds in the loft bedroom - ideal for youngsters - steep ladder/stairs and low ceiling! They also have another room across the landing that we understand has a double bed and ensuite. We did not use it and was not included. The heating was flexible - ignore the thermostat on the wall - it is just there to fool you it still works!!!! Each radiator has it's own temperature controls. Microwave/oven/grill worked well once we worked out the controls - the owners happily provided the english instructions. Dishwasher Access to the Serre Chevalier valley and Briancon is easy and there are two big supermarkets within a short drive in Briancon. Geant and Carrefour Market. Next to Geant there is also a large sports shop and two adjacent to Carrefour Market. There is a Carrefour City as well! Ski and Boot store available and parking on the drive, We definitely recommend the appartment. It took us 10 hours to drive directly back to Calais.

If the basement were heated it would make an excellent kit storage/drying area, but we were very happy staying there as it is. It is modern, well equipped & cosy. Plenty room for 2 or 3 people.

Practically ski to door - if you come off of one of the green runs into resort - you're 5 mins walk to several of the main lifts/cable cars in Villeneuve. The owner (Anthony) was always very quick to respond and the people that he had on site when we arrived, were very accommodating with our awkward arrival/departure times. Five stars - would definitely come again!
