Great location for skiing, comfortable and well appointed apartment

4 of 5
Great location for the lift up to Le Bettex, good to not have to walk a long way in ski boots carrying all the gear and storage downstairs. Easy walking distance from the centre of the village with loads of good places to eat. Very clean and comfortable apartment, that had everything that you could need. Very easy check in/out and easy to find and Mme Bosviel really helpful on site. No major problems at all, just a lack of space to prepare food in the kitchen, but on the flip side there was everything that you could need, just not a lot of space. Any other negatives just my preferences and certainly nothing that would stop me going back. Overall a really nice apartment in a good location that I would happily return to.
