                                                              Lovely Characterful Ski chalet - home from home!

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We stayed here for New Year and had a great time despite the lack of snow! 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.

                                                              We stayed several times in this chalet and enjoyed it very much. Especially with the new room downstairs it is perfect for us, family of 4 and dogs, to stay and have lots of space. Not far from skiing.

                                                              "Small place, but warm, comfortable and good value. Efficient communications with owner who accepts payment on arrival avoiding complex deposit payments etc. Slightly awkward arrangement with keys/locks etc which makes going out individually tricky. Internet is wifi and works fine with occasional slow downs. No clothes washer so bring what you need for your stay or be prepared to use the local launderette. Cooking is hob and microwave, no oven. Pillows and blankets (no duvets) provided, bring your own sheets towels etc. Small bathroom with shower and WC - plentiful hot water. Possible to sleep 4 (2 single beds on balcony, sofa makes 2 single beds) but cozy! About equidistant between Grand Massif and Portes du Soleil ski areas, both about 15-20 minutes drive - so you have the choice. This place would be a struggle without a car. On top of the rent, be prepared to pay €20-30 for the electricity for a winter week and €40 to have the place cleaned after you leave (unless you elect to do the latter yourself in which case the expectation is that you will leave it spotless)"
