The kitchen was well equipped & lots of space to hang & store all the ski gear. Lots of hot water for baths & showers after a long day on the slopes. The children loved the Wii & we all enjoyed chilling out in front of a DVD & the fire at the end of the day. It was easy to walk to the ski bus for the 5min journey to the slopes & we stored all the skis & boots in a hire locker in one of the ski shops. We always walked back to the chalet through the high street to grab food from the shops & enjoy a drink. One of the highlights was sitting outside at the end of the day enjoying the stunning view in the sun trap of the terrace.
