Residence is not so close to the pistes, and it is not so clean. But our apartment was nice, clean, modern furnished with good equipped kitchen. We chose the residence because of the SPA,which is undoubted the worst spa we have ever been. Extremely dirty, noisy, crowded, without towels and other SPA amenities. Spa is included to the price but... More

We have returned to here to find many improvements such as direct access to reception (without having to go outside) and a great catering service delivered to the residence. The spa was superb, quality products (decleor) and the therapists were very skilled.
