The owners are very nice, they made every effort to be self-contained. By cons access and difficult for people with reduced mobility and the owners warn in the ad, we had a great time, we were 9 and we did not walk on it, I highly recommend it. Florian

Convenient for the free Anzere village bus every 15 mins only 3 min walk & 5 min ride, or 15 min walk to the village, or 3 min walk from Chalet to La Poste a classic Swiss quality restaurant & Pizzeria; a variety of other ski resorts within 25 mins to 1 hour should you really need to explore any further than the excellent uncrowded Anzere resort - really does feel like millionaire's skiing on your own resort. Been visiting Anzere in this same Chalet for 8 years and sometimes 2 or 3 times per year and it still feels like the first time, fantastic. Only one bad thing - we have to go home!
