Conveniently located, extremely comfortable place.

5 of 5
The property is a good size and has a wondeful interior. The surrounding scenery is beautiful. The owners are welcoming and friendly. It is close to the town (about a ten minute walk). The only issue is that there is only one toilet. If you have a full house it could get awkward. This is a minor point, though; the property as a whole outshone that issue. I highly recommend it for anyone contemplating renting it.

A great Place to stay

5 of 5
We have now stayed in Chalet Etoile 3 times (twice at Feb /half term and once in late March). It is a wonderful, spacious, chalet that offers outstanding accommodation. It is always spotlessly clean and benefits from being a sunday to sunday rental thus enabling you to avoid the huge crowds on the motorways. The owners are flexible and a delight to rent from (frequently returning to us things our kids have left in the chalet). The chalet is a very short bus or car ride from the slopes and is extremely convenient for everything. We have stayed in countless places in and around the area over the past 15 years and this one is the best.
