Spacious apartment with plenty of comfortable seating. Good sized dining table. Great views. Warm and cosy.
Cheaper than comparable apartments especially considering 2 toilets and bathrooms (one is a bath and handshower and the other is a walk in shower).
Good access to unpack the car outside door of building and then allocated parking space a couple of minutes walk down the hill (not in expected space below apartment).
Access to ski run across road, Moulin is Swiss ski school nursery slope, but it is possible to put skis on and ski to button lift and then get off at the top to walk to bus stop at Brunet. Buses then go to Savoleyres or Medran. Coming back even easier. Ski down Rouge. Cross road and walk 200m along to the top of Moulin run and ski down to just opposite apartment. This saves walking down or up hill in ski boots if its icy.
Warm ski room. Not locked and neither is front door to building but we felt safe to leave skis there.
Coop supermarket is a short walk down the hill and to the left and has everything you need and parking (busy) though pricier than Migros and Denner further down the main road. Steep hill to walk back up with shopping but could use the car if its a big shop. Can also park for free to shop at Migros and Denner but cars with roofboxes or vans will be too tall for entrance.
Not quite perfect.... dingy hall needs better lighting. No microwave. Electric hob and oven have minds of their own and are difficult to switch on. Oven needs higher setting than expected to cook properly. Double bed sags in middle though comfortable and bedding warm and cosy (bring duvet covers, pillow slips, bottom sheet and towel, tea towels and dishcloths or rent bedding but rental price seems very high at 35CHF each). Toilet roll, one cleaning cloth supplied and some dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid but will need to get other items like soap and toilet cleaner. We also needed to add salt and rinseaid to dishwasher to improve its performance. Had to purchase new bulbs to replace duds because no spares in apartment.
Lick of paint wouldn't have gone amiss some parts looked a little tired.
Additional charges are mentioned during booking process but add up to more than expected. Heating and electricity charges and tourist tax for 4 of us was extra 252CHF. These should be more obvious at booking.
All in all a good apartment, could be GREAT with minimum effort and organisation. We had a great week with good snow.
