There are a selection of games and DVDs if the weather keeps you inside. We had a slight issue getting hold of the key holder before arriving (it turned out she was having a baby!) but an email to the owners solved the problem quickly and without fuss. They also advised us of some activities that were going on in VT. overall an excellent experience and no hesitation in recommending them and the appartement.

And only 5 mins from InterSport for ski hire. It also has the most draw dropping views from the south facing balcony overlooking the pistes and surrounding mountain range. The main downside is that (as in the case of our group of 5) it is tiny. Only 30sq mtrs. And although the description said 6 "real" beds, this does comprise of a bunk bed, and two sofa beds. Once we got used to the tight squeeze we got on fine, but the owner could help by removing superfluous leather cushions from around the lower tier of the bunk (they just take up far too much room when all beds are being used) and also supplying saucepans that were of a suitable size for the two ring hob (otherwise, it is almost impossible to use both rings at the same time). In addition, the description says it has a microwave and an oven. Untrue! It has a combi-microwave/oven. So don't turn up expecting to be able to cook your sunday roast! This apartment is perfect for groups of 2-3, or larger groups who are happy to eat out and just want a base.
