The apartment has everything you will need to make your stay perfect and the location is great as the centre of the village is about three minutes walk away. The village is a lovely place with several restaurants ,bars and shops and even out of season there is enough life there to give it a lovely atmosphere . The customer service by the owners is excellent to the point that on the day we arrived they sent a text to see that everything was ok. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for the perfect place to stop in the Alps .

If you are looking for peace and quiet with a great nights sleep, look no further. It nestles in the hillside overlooking mountains. The only sounds you will hear will be ......... nature. The gite is warm, cosy and comfortable. Load of hot water, comfortable beds and quality finish. The hosts Veronique and Fred are delightful. We would love to return
