Wonderful quiet place to stay with superb views.

5 of 5
The views from the terrace are absolutely as good as they look in the photo. It is a pity that the same views can't be got from inside the house, though the Velox windows do show the mountains and the house is very light due to the amount of glass facing the Terrace. The house was very clean, comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. The Bathroom and Shower were a good size with plenty of hot water always available. The layout of the house maximises the space and prevents the main kitchen/diner/living room from feeling crowded. Eleanor was very helpful and friendly without being at all intrusive. There were only 2 of us and the living space may feel limited for more than 2 people, particularly the small couch if you're stuck inside for any time. The garage space gives peace of mind for parking off road. We had a great stay and would recommend the house to our friends. The distance from Les Houches makes the location seem very private and quiet, which was great for us and for sitting on that terrace. Thank you.
