Lovely house, would recommend

  • 5 of 5

A gorgeous house with a lot of atmosphere, very toasty warm, very comfortable, perfect for our mixed aged skiing group of 8, plenty of privacy yet also the lovely living room/kitchen/dining room downstairs to be all together;; excellent wifi connection; easy and quick drive to ski slopes and a good choice as we had beginners to expert skiers (we skied from Pré La Joux in Chatel); easy shopping in village; we had a really lovely holiday.

Gorgeous large house sleeps 12

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in Abondance, sleeps 12, well decorated throughout with spacious bedrooms and large bathrooms. A great kitchen/ dining room area with a large wood burner. This house has a really nice feel , homely, clean and full of character. There are lovely big windows throughout with fantastic views of the snowy hills surrounding. There is a garden to the rear which was under snow when we were there. La Chapelle & Chatel are a few Kilometres away, there is a chairlift in Abondance and a beginners magic carpet & sledging slope. Abondance has some good restaurants - all in all a great place to go skiing or enjoy the alps in the summer.
