This was our second visit to Levi but our first to these chalets. We stayed here in December 2012 and I have been meaning to write this review for some time. We stayed in a one room chalet, for two adults and one child it was fine but may have been a bit of a squeeze for three adults.
We found the chalet to be well equipped it had everything you could need for a self catering holiday, we never made use of all the equipment. Many people comment that Levi is an expensive place but we found the supermarkets reasonably priced (approx Sainsbury's Marks and Spencers and Waitrose price range). The only thing we found to be expensive was junk food and alcohol, if you are willing to cook from fresh ingredients meals need not be that expensive.
If using the dishwasher be sure to select a short programme as it can seem to go on forever.
The DVD player was very handy to watch Christmas movies to get us into the festive spirit. Also many English language films were played on TV with Finnish subtitles.
The accommodation was spotless on arrival, yes you do have to make up your own beds on arrival but I felt this was a small price to play for such lovely accommodation.
The beds were comfortable and my little one loved sleeping on the bunk above the double.
There was just enough storage available for clothes as we tended to keep our outer clothes in the dryer. The dryer did break during our holiday and a replacement part was not available until the end of the week so we were given keys to use another drying cupboard.
We were never really disturbed by any external noise,despite being in such a central location. We found the lady on reception to be helpful and polite and dealt with any enquiries/ problems efficiently.
Internet access could be a bit temperamental but did not find this a problem.
The sauna was lovely and we didn't have any problems with it quickly heating up.
We booked through Inghams, we had already booked the excursions we wanted so didn't make use of the rep although he did come round to check we were ok and said he would pop around again, to which I told him not to as we were fine and would easily find him if we had any problems.
We all really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again if we were to visit Levi again.
