The bedrooms are a decent size and the double bedroom felt spacious. We are a family of four and had a comfortable stay here. Maxine was very welcoming and helpful. It is well located for the shops and restaurants in the village (a short walk) and easy access to the river path which you can walk or cycle on all the way to Morzine. There is also a cross country MTB route which goes through neighbouring villages. I would recommend the apartment to others!

Lots of little extras thrown in like basic condiments in the kitchen and coffee! Good area for storing ski equipment and toasty warm apartment when we returned from a day out on the slopes. Good area in the hall for hanging damp clothes and everything dried out over night. Lovely balcony - we had some sunny weather so it was great to sit outside, relax and watch the world go by! It is a fab spot for restaurants, bars and a well stocked supermarket. The food in the restaurants is outstanding and we had a great time at Le Clin D'Oeil - just across the street from the apartment, I would highly recommend eating there. We went to Dixie Bar a couple of times and saw a fantastic Irish band. We had breakfast in various cafes around the town and had good wifi connection in all except for when it was snowing!! The atmosphere in the town is very welcoming and to top it all off the ski hire shop is no more than 15 steps away from the entrance to the apartment block! The bus to the slopes is a short walk and the ski area is huge and brilliant for all levels. So all in all we had the best time and it was lovely being in a light modern apartment that was cosy, easy to keep tidy and clean!! That's why I think this apartment deserves ***** !
