We visited the ski areas of Risoul and Vars for skiing each day and the drive was easy. It was lovely to come back to the calm of the chalet each day and chill. Lovely restaurants nearby in St Crepin, Briancon and Guillestre and lots of supermarkets, boulangeries and more. A week is just not enough. Richard and Muriel could not have been more helpful from their warm responses to our initial inquiry to suggestions and wonderful photos of the area to help us settle.

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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

There is a lovely little balcony which is perfect for breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening. The views from here are beautiful - over Barcelonnette town to the mountains beyond. The apartment is on the second floor of the house. There is plenty of storage space in the apartment itself and also in the basement where you can safely leave bikes etc. Barcelonnette is a lovely town with several cultural events going on and plenty of good places to eat. The town center is a short walk away from the apartment. There are endless opportunities in the valley for cycle rides and walks catering for all different levels of fitness and ability. We're hoping that it won't be too long until a return visit!
