We haven't even left yet, but I have to rave about Alpine Villa Nozawa's stand-alone Nozawa Cottage. Our family of 4 has spent the past week in the winter wonderland of Nozawa (even though it's spring!) and will struggle to pack up and leave tomorrow.
The cottage has everything you need to be comfortable - kitchen, cosy heating, tv with loads of movies (for adults and kids) for lazy afternoons and nights, WiFi, washing machine/dryer and views of the mountains. It is just a few minutes walk to the gondola and allows complete independence but with the knowledge that the staff down at the Villa are there to help if we need anything at all (very useful with the limited English spoken by the locals).
On arrival, Gabriel showed us around the cottage, which had already been stocked with a good supply of breakfast ingredients including eggs, bread, milk, vegemite, cereals, jam, tea, coffee and giant apples. He later kitted us out with the necessary ski gear we needed from the rental office at the Villa and then drove us back up the hill (as we parked our car in their lot). He and his wife have continued to help us out whenever needed, even providing a bandage for our daughter’s sprained knee. They are fantastic!
We admit to having been somewhat lazy after our days skiing (especially with the snowfall), only venturing out for dinner a couple of times and instead cocooning with homemade meals (we stocked up in Nagano - but there are also some basic supermarkets in the village), books and movies.
All in all fantastic !
