Loved it so much we came back again :)

5 of 5
We had such a great time here in January we came back again to catch the end of the ski season in March. Once again, Chez Amis didn't disappoint. Just like last time, the place was welcoming and ready for us. We laughed at the other review pointing out the small toilet - you really don't need to spend much time in there! It's absolutely fine :) Grand Massif still has a lot to offer in the late season, particularly the snow higher up in Flaine which you can access from the local lift in Morillon. As it got warmer down in the valley we loved spending time at Lac Bleu. When you're in ski gear up the mountain in the morning and shorts and a t-shirt by the lake in the afternoon you know you're in a special place! We're already planning to come back again in the early summer once the snow has gone. Thanks again Chez Amis
