Within an hour of parking our hire car outside the front door of this delightful hotel, we were skiing! We were given a warm welcome, ski pass photos were immediately taken and we were shown to our room. It was not overly big but was spotless, finished with chalet-style wood and looked out onto the piste. As soon as we had dropped the suitcases we were shown to the ski hire shop in the hotel fitted with skis and boots that greatly improved our skiing for the week.
On returning after a perfect afternoon, our skis and boots were collected on piste and our day shoes were waiting for us. This happened every morning at evening without fail.
The swimming pool, steam room, sauna were of exceptional quality with large, airy windows looking out on to the piste.
We would not generally choose to eat hotel food, but in the case of Les Airelles it was a good move. Our only complaint was the price of the house wine, £25 minimum, but we found a reasonable one on the second night and stuck with that. There were many "Abramovichs'" there and to these Russian friends the Chateau Latours did not seem to pose a financial threat!
Large log fires at dinner time and warm friendly staff all the time.
Perhaps you are waiting for the, but.......
There is no but.
Yes it was expensive, but worth every euro!
If you visit on the strength of this write up, you will be happy if you get even 75% of the delight we got from our visit.
