This apartment was nicely furnished and located at the best end of the village. Ski in/out. Close to most of the restaurants. A well stocked kitchen which is a rarity in ski apartments. Happy to recommend!

Fantastic location a few meters from a lift. Great staff happy to go out of their way with help and advice. Great village - not commercial- with plenty of great places to eat. Views of the mountain were sensational.

We traveled as a family of 4 with young kids and the location is amazing. Staff was very friendly and the room was equiped with everything you need. The ski lockers are conviently located and easily accessible. Just steps away from the Ace Family Lift. One small suggestion : Please provide some some measuring spoons for the kitchen!
