Warm and cosy apartment by the ski slopes

4 of 5
My family had a wonderful time in this apartment during our ski trip. Very clean and fully furnished. We cooked there every night and were very comfortable. Newly renovated apartment with a luxurious bathroom and very nice decor throughout. One of the mornings was warm enough for us to eat breakfast in the garden, with a view pf snow covered mountain. We hope to return in the near future!

Excellent Location and Facilities with Attentive Owners

5 of 5
This is a great location for skiing and the accommodation is well located and good quality. There is adequate space for 4 people without feeling cramped. The owners ensured we were well looked after, meeting us on arrival and during stay. Great facilities, highly recommended and well priced.
