I have just got back from a week at Sabot De Venus and wanted to add to the reviews that I read before my trip. I must agree with all the points made by Miss Nic's review, she's got it spot on.
For a last minute deal the value is pretty unbeatable considering the location and standard of the overall resort. Saying this, I would have been a bit put out if I had paid the full whack. The accommodation is basic with small rooms. Not all rooms have en suite toilettes and those with are again very small. The route to the chalet is also positioned on a steep downward slope which can be tricky to navigate especially after a bit of apres ski.
The winning points of the chalet are more to do with the standard of the staff. Our Rep (Callum), Head Host (Susie), Host Lily and Chef extraordinaire Dan where all fantastic. The chalet was kept very clean despite its age. The food exceeded all of our expectations every night. The Rep was always available and happy to help with anything from local knowledge to getting us all out and orientated in the resort and the pistes.
If you want to go and get the most out of your lift pass and ski / board full days, Venus is a great place to crash and re-fuel. If you want a more sedate holiday where the aesthetic standard of you accommodation is a priority I would consider upgrading to a 4 star.
I had a great trip and would recommend like minded friends to definitely book here if the deal price was on offer.
