The renovations have been a great addition to the chalet and Michelle and Claude were excellent hosts and made us feel very much at home. We skied in La Clusaz every day and had a wonderful week full of sunshine. We were two families and the space was perfect for us all. The only thing that was missing was a dryer as we felt that was very much needed especially with children. Apart from that all was perfect and we look forward to returning next year.

It's quiet in the apartment and yet you exit the building right into the buzz of the market, shops and restaurants. It's well equipped and comfortable, and Sylvie was very welcoming and kind. Headroom is cramped up on the mezzanine and the occasional bumped head is almost inevitable for grown-ups (we were 4 adults), but we had a great week.
