The apartement was perfect, location was brilliant, the surroundings were breathaking

5 of 5
Our family (2 adults, 2 children) spent 2 weeks in this apartment. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of apce for all of us, along with our belongings. There is shops, restaurants, cafes, bakery, tourist office directly outside the apartment building. Linen and towels can be hired from reception and internet access can be paid for online. There are daily acivities just a couple of hundred meters away at Valmeinier 1800. There are also a wide range of activities available through the tourist office, who are very happy to help. The mountains themselves provide large amount of possibilities for activities and relaxation. Parking is in the central car park outside the apartment building, but you can just leave your car there for your entire stay, as there is plenty do locally. We all had a fantastic time and would defenitely go back again. The comunication with the owner was fine, however speaking French would have helped us. All in all, amazing hholiday, can't wait to see the place in the winter.

Great location and great accomodation

4 of 5
Accomdation was clean and adequate on our arrival. We had a great welcome form the gentleman who was looking after us. Our stay was slightly overshadowed by the lack of snow on the ground which would ahve allowed us to ski in and ski out of the apartment whcih would have been great. Nice decor and very comfy beds the only downside was there was no sitting arrangements for relaxing to watch TV just the dining table in the communal space. Also the discription of the apartment led us to believe there would be 2 toilets however there was only one. This did not have to much of a detrimental affect on the holiday. We would definitly consider using this aprtment again.
