Great location and hosts

5 of 5
Clean, well-furnished, quiet studio apartment with beautiful garden located 10 minute walk from town centre which has a nice selection of bars, supermarkets and restaurants. The location was ideal for our 5 night motorcycle adventure around the area which included visits to the local Cols, Gorge du Verdon, Daluis, Cians, Lac de Serre-Ponçon, Valberg, Beuil, Tinée valley etc. Lovely family owners who were very helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended.

The chalet was everything we could have wanted for our skiing holiday.

5 of 5
We have just had a great holiday staying at chalet des Pleiades in risoul. Everything was straightforward including all communication with Christian, the owner, and Stephanie, who organises the keys. The chalet itself was very well-equipped and cosy. Everything has been thought of - all cooking facilities, washing machine and dishwasher and storage facilities for ski equipment. The location is perfect for a quick ski down the slope to the ski-lifts/ meeting point for lessons. We would not hesitate to book this property again for a skiing trip to the French Alps.
