What a shame. This chalet has all the potential of being outstanding, located metres from the main lifts and beautiful panoramic views.
However, it is simply not good value for money. It's outdated, dirty and in desperate need of investment. The chalet has not been touched since the 70's. The living room has only comfy seats for three people, yet the chalets sleeps six. Surely a comfy sofa is MUST after a hard days skiing? The TV is from the 80's and only a works with DVD's (non provided). The bedrooms are spacious, but the bathrooms a joke, our bathroom had tiles falling from the skirting board and a shower that the head was positioned so high and at such an angle that it simply sprayed the bathroom. We spent a week holding the hose so, not to soak the bathroom.
The noise from streets went on all night and meant that with even with ear plugs, it was very difficult to sleep.
One highlight was the food, Ali, our host did a great job to produce the food from the spacious but grimy, basic kitchen.
The senior rep, was of poor standard and offered no value to our trip. The staff were generally very amateur.
So, in summary, spend your cash somewhere else. We had a great holiday, the skiing was super, the food good, but the chalet was very poor. We paid £850 for a week, if I had spent £500, then I am sure I would been a lot more accepting of the chalets poor standard.
