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.
