                                  Great value!

                                  4 of 5
                                  We (myself, husband, 5yo daughter) had 10 days at the Apartment during the summer holiday and had a fantastic time. The apartment is well located in a quiet village and is a good base for exploring the area - you will need a car. Apartment itself is basic but this is reflected in the price and is good value for money. Only slight negative is I would avoid the linen hire from the estate agency - it was poor quality and didn't fit the beds. It would be better value to buy some cheap duvet covers out there or pay for extra baggage on the flight if needs be. Otherwise a great holiday and would recommend to others.

                                  We stayed here with another family at New Year. It was wonderful being able to simply walk across the road to the button lift. The views from the chalet of Mont Blanc were magnificent. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place. The skiing was fantastic. We hired a local private moniteur who took us to all the places most people don't get to! We would definitely go again. Praz de Lys has some lovely restaurants too, notably Jean de la Pipe.
