                                    Stunning Chalet. Spacious and well equipped

                                    5 of 5
                                    We loved this chalet and spent two weeks in it with all our extended family. The open plan top floor is a beautiful place to hang out and made evenings together a brilliant experience. All the furnishings and bathrooms are top quality and the location was perfect for us, as we could get in to the town or on tot the mountains quickly and easily. We wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend.

                                    Comfortable chalet

                                    4 of 5
                                    We have enjoyed our skiing holiday in this comfortable challet despite the fact that the wheather was so different every day and not the best for skiing:) The apartament is very comfortable, well equiped kitchen (we missed only a pan for pancakes :) , the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms did not cause any inconvenience. Every day we felt like at home after skiing. Location is perfect - ski bus stop is near the chalet. For improvement only one suggestion: please find a possibillity to make a place for clothes and ski-boots drying. Everything else is fine. The instructions and "key-system" are perfect!!!

                                    Great stay in this light and spacious chalet!

                                    4 of 5
                                    We stayed in Brimbelles with 9 persons, 6 guys and 3 girls. Everybody was very enthousiastic about the chalet! It's big, spacious, clean and comfortable. 5 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms. The upper bathroom shower is a little bit low if you're tall, but other than that, this one has a bath! The big jacuzzi is also a big plus! What we missed: -Bathrobes in the rooms -Replacement of the knives, preparing dinner is very difficult because they where very blunt -A foosball table/pooltable (i know its difficult to find space for this, maybe in the basement/garage or offering 1 couch?) We expect that the group will be bigger than 10 persons next year unfortunately, because otherwise we would definitely come back to this chalet!
