Chalet Les Hirondelles if by far the very best we have ever stayed at. Firstly it has the most unbelievable view from every window. It is decorated with huge style and comfort and has a wonderful friendly feel to it ... a little like being in ones own home. All the bedrooms are of a fantastic size with their own immaculate and up to date bathrooms. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will need and more. The open plan living room with central fireplace is stunning and works so well as an entertaining space and equally well as a space to sit and read your book while looking at that view! If you have children their is a great games room, TV/snug room and a wonderful hot tub - we couldn't get our children out of this! It is located just off the slopes so makes for the perfect start and end to your skiing day. I highly recommend a stay at Chalet Les Hirondelles - you will never want to stay anywhere else again!

Spacious and comfortable with good quality furnishings. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed. There were lovely views from every window and we enjoyed being able to sit out on the patio in the sunshine. Contact with the owners was excellent and the collection and return of keys to the local agent was very smooth. We certainly hope to return soon. Christine and Graham
