We stayed the week before Christmas. The chalet was fully equipped, immaculately clean, and lovely and warm. You can park your car outside the front door. We arrived late in the evening, the owners kindly waited up for us. Great views. We were a family of 3, on a skiing holiday, not much snow, but Amanda advised us where to go skiing, we had a great holiday. Would definitely return, and recommend to a friend.

Thankfully the chalet was so comfortable and such a nice place to be otherwise I think we would have been more disappointed about the snow conditions. The chalet was more a family home than just ski accommodation with lots of extras that make all the difference; raclette machine, crepe machine, sledges, wood burning stove (with endless supply of wood), cookery books and a very well equipped kitchen to name a few. We especially liked the alternative hot tub which is heated by lighting a wood fire! Handy to have a teenager to keep the fire stoked but really only took a few hours to heat up. Amazing place to welcome in the New Year - in the hot tub with a glass of Bubbly! Good location to ski different resorts but a car is essential. Would love to return, hopefully with better skiing next time! Thank you Nigel and Irene for all the information, advice and for taking the time to ensure that we had a good holiday.
