Chalet Milou Is in no way a typical Chalet, I would have to say its a basement accomodation, with shared living, trying its hardest to be a chalet.
The chalet lacks light, Which was so disapointing. One of the main attractions of staying in a chalet for me, is the light hitting the curtains in the morning, and opening them to a view unlike any other, unfortunately the only window in our room was a frosted tiny thing which was coverd over by snow, however, it did make a great beer fridge.
On a more positive note, the offerings were very good, the chalet itself was clean and reasonably sized, With shared dining and lounging areas as well as a big sauna. We had room 6, a triple room( two reasonably comfy beds, one just plain rotten) with its own shower room, The room was large enough to accomodate a cot and still have extra space.
The cystal chalet staff were excellent, I really think they did a great job, and were more than helpfull. They were always in early to make sure there was food available before the mad rush to the child care facilities. afternoon tea was freshly made daily and waiting on us arriving back. The girls looking after us freshly prepared dinner for the kids about an hour before the adults. chicken nuggets, pizza, sausage etc. Once the kids were tucked nicely in bed it was time for the fab three course dinner. The rooms were cleaned everyday unless you requested otherwise.
The lifts are all a few minutes walk, two are across the road, and theres a gondola and another two lift a little bit up the hill. Our kids were booked into the wizz kids club and pepi penguin club inside the hotel diva,( So this means catching a bus at 8.10. It takes about 10 minutes to get there. we chose to drop the kids off and then come back to the chalet and get ready, which can be done for the lift opening at 9.
Despite a couple of negatives, As a whole the holiday and stay were good, Fab Boarding, Fab Food, Second to none Childcare, Excellent ski School, Excellent Staff, very good rep, ok Chalet.
Would I stay again? probably not, Just too much like a basement.
avoid room 1, which is of sitting room, this is the noisy room.
