Our family of 10 had an amazing stay at your beautiful chalet. We loved the sauna, jacuzzi and table tennis. Rooms are beautiful, modern and clean. Having 4 en suit bathrooms was a bonus. The kitchen had extensive cutlery, pots and pans. It was well worth the drive all the way from London. Thank you for an amazing stay and we can't wait to come back.kindest regards.

The apartment has bunk beds in a separate area with a big wardrobe for clothes and shoes. The shower is hot and powerful and the toilet is separate which is good. The lounge has a comfy sofa bed with the kitchen attached - including a dishwasher with lots of plates and cutlery etc so no way of running out. There is a dining table for 6 and a separate double bed room. There is also a balcony facing the front of the property. As a family of 4 we had a wonderful holiday and would recommend this property - its great value for money and worked well for out ski trip to Vars. Short walk to the slopes and shops and a large ski locker easily held 3 sets of skis and boots and a snowboard. We only booked 2 weeks prior to going and it was so easy to book and the owner contacted us straight away to organise the details.
