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.

Situated slightly out of town (which was fine for access) and meant easy parking. Rob & Karen were extremely friendly & helpful with lots of local knowledge. We will be back!

Whilst the other family in our group had their own space there was enough room in our apartment for sociable communal eating. Easy access to the Valmeinier 1800 by car or bus and lovely valley side setting in a very family orientated resort. Rob and Karen are very friendly and helpful with excellent local knowledge. We'd definitely go back.
