Comfortable and relaxing break

4 of 5
This is a great place to stay for a relaxing, restful holiday. The owners are wonderful from the start, extremely hospitable and eager to ensure that their visitors have the best of times. The house is very well equipped inside and out because the owners have thought carefully about what will help holidaymakers to have everything they need. The nearby towns and villages are very well worth visiting. The two downsides are the access roads which are long, narrow and windy, and the insects which make their presence felt throughout the day and night. Nevertheless, we cannot praise highly enough the quality of welcome we received, including the owners' very positive approach to allowing pets to stay at their property.

Great Alpine retreat. Views to die for.

4 of 5
The Great - The Accommodation, the Views, the location, the pool, the tranquility. The host, very polite. The Draw backs - Remote location, 25 mins to nearest Supermarket. (Also a positive). Not a lot to keep Children entertained. Internet Access Very poor. Mobile signal in different. Anything else? The Bar is not always open the restaurant was Michelin star. I'm sure the quality is excellent however could not be to everyone's tastes for 6/7 nights. Kitchens in our apartment. Highly recommended for couples retreat or somewhere to explore hiking and fab views. Our family is in its mid thirties with one young 5 y/O child. (take Dvd player) The accommodation excelled as a base to visit Nice, Cannes and Monte Carlo. All an hour drive. And with 7000 ft above sea level, provided views you'll never forget and a drive up an Alp you'll enjoy.
