ski en famille, enfants et petits-enfants

  • 4 of 5

Sommes venus de Bretagne, faire du ski, les trois générations réunies.

Nous avons trouvé un chalet confortable, douillet, très bien isolé, agréablement situé en face de l'arrêt de la navette accédant à la station; très belle vue sur le versant d'en face depuis la salle de séjour.

Beaucoup de neige cette année; pistes bien exposées; domaine non damé, skiable, sans danger.

Restaurant du village d'Orcières sympathique, propriétaires accueillants

Merci à un propriétaire tres sympathique

  • 4 of 5

Un chalet, tres agréable, ou rien ne manque au niveau du confort.

A notre arrivée la maison était chauffée, ce qui est tres appreciable en novembre.

A disposition il y a des couverts, casseroles, et plats plus qu'il n'est neccessaire.

La cheminée ( le bois est à disposition ) donne une ambiance chaleureuse en soirée. Le lave vaisselle évite (aux dames), la corvée de vaisselle......

Nous étions dix adultes et un jeune enfant, et nous n'avons jamais manqué d'eau chaude pour la douche, ce qui n'est pas toujours le cas dans d'autre location.

Les deux salles de bain et les deux WC permettent a tout les convives de ne pas se bousculer (aux heures de pointes) pour se doucher.

Si vous aimez le calme et la tranquililté, dans un grand chalet confortable, je vous recommande cette maison.Comme nous vous passerez un tres agréable séjour.
