As you enter the vestibule it would be easy to think that this is a tired drab building. However, once inside my room all was well. It is clean, tidy and although I think it would be a squeeze for 4 people it was perfect for my needs. Pretty much everything you need is available for self catering. All shops, restaurants and ski hire is within 5 minutes walk and just a further 5 minutes to the Gondola to Meribel. ( without ski boots) Some things to bear in mind that Crystal ski, who I booked through didn't tell me about. You need to provide a £300 deposit on arrival. The "reception" is at Nexity which appears to be an estate agents situated about 100m away You will need to bring your own towels and toilet roll/ cleaning products. Or buy them from the nearby Spar. All in all s very comfortable and pleasant stay.

This a great affordable option for skiing the three valleys. My partner and I have just returned from a package holiday with Crystal. The apartments themselves were immaculately clean! Seriously for what we paid, we were impressed! Really well equipped for self catering too, we even had a hand blender and salad spinner! (not that we sued them!) The sofa bed was super easy to pul out and put away. The little balcony was a great addition. It was a really cosy little apartment and we would definitely stay again. The Spar is a short 2 min walk away, but is tiny and a little pricey. If you can, head to the supermarket in Meribel and then catch the bubble. Brides les bain is a very quiet resort, so if you are after lots of apres, you'll be in the wrong place. Hotel Amelie is the only place we found happy hour. The bubble is a good 5 minute walk (uphill) so I would really recommend paying 20 euros for the lockers at the lift station. Much easier to walk downhill in your shoes and not ski boots. The Olympe bubble ran on time and the 5.30pm cut off wasn't too bad at all. We certainly didn't feel we missed any skiing because of it. The wifi was good too, we managed to stream some you tube episodes of our sitcoms. You do need your own towels, but they do provide bedding and it is included. We only ate out once at Pizza Man La Cabane and we would also recommend this place! Only a few tables, but great food and very friendly! Booking advisable.

I have stayed here five times. The apartments are adequate for budget skiing and probably the best option in Brides-Les-Bains. The lifts and corridors look a bit tired, but the insides of the individual apartments are fine. Having said that, the apartments vary. I think they are all privately owned and rented out as time shares, so some have nicer decor than others. The basic layout is consistent, though, with a storage cupboard and a bunk bed in the passageway next to the bathroom, leading into the lounge/diner which has a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a fold out double bed. The kitchenette is adequate with some or all of the following: (depending on the luck of the draw) a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, oven and twin hob. The village pub is opposite which serves good pizzas to eat in or take away, as well as cheese, ham and potatoes melted/baked/roasted in various combinations. There is a fantastic boulangerie 100m up the road which is open early enough that you can go to get your daily bread, have your breakfast croissants and make your picnic for the day and stil lhave plenty of time before the gondola up the mountain opens at 08:30. It is a 5 minute walk to the gondola and a 20 minute ride to Meribel.

Brides Les Bains is a lovely little village, although a tiring walk to and from the gongala from our apartment (not very far, just a steep hill). Apartment had all of the facilities and was clean and tidy. You must remember to bring your own towels which was a bit odd???? Ski shop about 10 yards from the door which was good and a pub over the road with a very very nice restruant in it (once you get past the grumpy landlord)

This is our second stay here and again it has been very good. You need to bring your own bedding and towels, you also need to bring dish clothes and cleaning products as none are provided. We travelled by car so this was not a problem, otherwise there is an option to pay €45 to have the appartment cleaned or you can buy cleaning items at the local shop. If you can take your own pillow I recommend this. The sofa turns into two single beds so plan for that. The appartment is well equipped there is a ski storage area and for €20 you can book a parking space in their underground car park for a week, I recommend this as there is direct access to all floors via the lift. The free wifi is good, especially between 9am and 3pm as most people will be skiing. The location is central and a short walk to the gondola. our appartment was clean and tidy on arrival, plenty hot water in the shower and all the cooking appliances and utensils you could need. You should also bring dishwasher tablets as they only supply one. I would stay here again.
