I stayed there in the third week of January. The apartments were very nice. Excellent bus service, which is a necessity as the apartments are at the top of a steep hill, but it only runs until 7.30pm.
First impressions were that our apartment was stinking of smoke despite being no smoking apartments. Other than handing us a tin of airfreshner, the manager wasn't prepared to do anything about it. It was so bad we couldn't sit in the lounge/ kitchen area.Fortunately for us the bedrooms were smoke free. Basically the management had our money and didn't care. They said that a lot of there apartments were the same and people were smoking in them. You will be fined for smoking in them but you will not be given compensation for having to stay in one....at best you'll be given a tin if airfreshner and be expected to do their job for them! Can't stress enough how horrible it was and completely ruined our stay.
On the other hand Valloire was as beautiful as ever....
