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.
