It had everything we needed including a washing/games room downstairs, perfect for storing our bikes, to a well stocked kitchen with open plan eating ideal for socialising. The chunky table on the lovely veranda was great on the hotter days. A 15 minute walk takes you to the small market square with good tourist office and a few places to eat and shop. Locally the summer luge at Le Clusaz was fun as was the pool at Le Grand Bormand. Down the valley at Thones is a larger supermarket and plenty more cultural and sporting activities. Local walks and challenging cycle routes also provide ideal alternatives for the more active! Overall a wonderful week spent with family and friends.

However, This didnt matter as we were within walking distance of the village. The property was lovely with a great decked area where we spent most evenings looking out at the beautiful views. Inside the chalet was immaculate and appeared recently refurbished to a high standard. The rooms were all a good size and there was plenty of storage. The beds were all very comfortable. It felt like a real home from home. Free WiFi too which was a real bonus for our teenage son! Would definately book to come back. Might like to try in the winter months next to see the contrast in scenery. Thank you so much for a holiday to remember.
