Ive given the Grand Bois 3 stars because it was Average.
The appartment was very well situated and is 100% ski in ski out which is nice. You get dropped off a little way from the hotel but its not far and seeing as there is no road by the Bois its fair enough. Walk up a load of steps and your there!
The appartment kitchen facilities were adaquate and reasonably clean. Only 2 mugs, 3 plates etc which could cause a problem but not for 2 people. We had the C1 which is a larger version of the 4/5 people apartment and it is fine for 2.
Generally the place is OK but a little tired and needing a good clean in places (Bathroom floor dusty and covered in hair behind the door). You got the impression its the kind of cleaning job you would of done at the age of 6 if no one was checking your work! For example the toilet had a terrible ammonia smell filtering out from it which was apparently the 'cleaning fluid' used to clean the floor!. We waited a day then bought an air freshener which was then fine with the door closed. Smell seemed to disapear after about 3 days so maybe it was true!! (We did complain by the way!)
Beds comfy enough in a small room. No room for cases in the bedroom though.
First time to France but have heard that budget accomadation is notoriously poor in general and it was good to have a proper bed in a separate room.
I would still reccomend this to a friend but would tell them what to expect first.
3 Valleys area is right on your door and La Tania gives access to some great skiing with runs for all abilities just a lift away.
