Chalet bien situé, spacieux, bon standing

  • 5 of 5

Nombreux couchages, équipements riches, décoration soignée, bel ensoleillement, très adapté pour grande tribu.

Tout neuf, propre, grande pièce à vivre.

Bon accueil des voisins !

Pas d'appareil à raclette, mais le magasin d'en face en loue !

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, dans une station que nous connaissons bien, en famille nombreuse de 8 personnes.

Bon rapport qualité prix pour ce bon niveau de prestation.

Chalet confortable mais surement pas pour 10 perso

  • 2 of 5

Chalet confortable qui m'a fait bonne impression quand le propriétaire me l'a fait visiter ,nous étions 10 personnes et nous avons eu la mauvaise surprise de constater que le canapé-lit de la pièce a vivre était inutilisable

( mauvais matelas et très étroit).

donc ce chalet est pour 8 personnes et pas 10.

La chambre du rez de chaussée est belle mais n'a pas de placard pour mettre les vêtements.

Egalement mauvaise surprise dans la cuisine d'une propreté douteuse, les propriétaires avaient laissé leur affaires et donc pas de placards vides pour mettre les nôtres .

En conclusion location fait pour 8 personnes et pas 10, de propreté douteuse et chère .

Beau chalet ou il est agreable de vivre mais pas adapté pour 10 personnes .

  • 2 of 5

Nous avons vécu 5 semaines en famille dans ce beau chalet tout bois avec sa terrasse a l'est très agréable. Nous avons choisi cette location car nous avions besoin de 10 places mais en fin de compte il y a de la place au maximum pour 8 places car le canapé-lit de la salle a vivre est inutilisable ( mauvais matelas et 120 cm de largeur et pas de rangements pour les effets personnels) et il n'y a que 8 chaises autour de la table de la cuisine et la vaisselle et les instruments de cuisine ne sont pas adaptée pour 10 personnes.

La chambre du rez de chaussée est spacieuse avec son cabinet de toilette mais ne comporte pas de rangement pour les effets personnels et rien a dire sur les chambres du premier étage.

Egalement nous n'avons pas pu ranger notre épicerie dans les placards de la cuisine car ils étaient pleins.

En conclusion chalet agréable a vivre mais pas adapté pour la location et chère vu les inconvénients que nous avons rencontrés.
