                                  Pure luxury, quiet location, amazing views

                                  5 of 5
                                  Sous les Bois is pure luxury. The five bedrooms are all gorgeous, we arrived first from our group and could not dicide which one we liked most. Beautiful bathrooms, HUGE baths, great views, underfloor heating, and the most comfortable beds you will ever sleep in. The massive upstairs area is a brilliant social space with a proper bar, pool table, sofas, and full size windows at either end with views up the mountain on one side and across the valley on the other. We even found ourselves enjoying some wine and playing board games up there one evening which was an ideal antidote after a few days intensive apres ski. Needless to say, the chalet is perfectly equipped as a ski base and the location is perfect for accessing the big resorts. The hot tub with a G&T in hand was just the icing on the cake. We've stayed in loads of great places in the Alps in the past 15 years but at last we've found the chalet that we'll be coming back to every year. Thanks for a perfect holiday.

                                  A stunning chalet, ideal for two families sharing

                                  5 of 5
                                  This is a very well-equipped ski chalet, with everything you might want for a perfect stay in the Alps. From the heated boot rack in the ski room to the outdoor jacuzzi and sauna, it was a wonderful place for a week's skiing. The kitchen had everything you might have needed and more. We managed to cook for ten people and all sit down to eat together too. The wood-burning stove ensured we were very cosy in the evenings and there was no shortage of logs to keep it going. Bertrand was a good host, arriving on the first evening to clear the drive and patio of snow and quickly responding to our concerns about hot water. He was also very helpful in response to email enquiries before we left. The chalet has lovely views up the mountain, though it is a steep climb from the main road. As stated in the details, a car is necessary. This was not a problem for us, as we always drive down and like to visit different resorts when we are there. The only small thing that was a little difficult was having just one main bathroom, along with a shower and sink inside another bedroom. This did make for a bit of queuing for a shower in the mornings and evenings. Also, while I know it is fairly standard in France, it is irritating to have to strip all the beds before you leave, especially as we were leaving in the early hours of the morning. I would prefer to pay a little more and not have to strip beds when I am on holiday. Overall, we had a super holiday and I would recommend it.
