The apartments are really small and old fashioned. In theory we had a 5-person-apartment however two of us had to sleep just on the mattresses. You can't call it a proper bed. During the day there was no hot water in the bathroom. Be careful because there is a stupid rule that wearing ski boots in the lobby is forbidden....

Went with an organised University trip so wasn't expecting much when we arrived due to how cheap it was, however was not expecting it to be as bad as it was. 5 people crammed into a room meant that you then have no social space because they make you use the living room as two beds, storage space was woeful....

Never ever stay here. It is the most appalling place I have ever come across. In fact, I can't believe the French Tourist Board haven't condemned or shut the place down. Overcrowded rooms, no hot water, no sheets or bed linen unless you hire, but even then they are like tissue paper. Everything broken - truly dreadful. A tent would...

Clean when we arrived, reception staff very helpful, brilliant location - 2 min walk from ski lifts, shops, ski hire, restaurants etc. Room contained all crockery needed and plenty of blankets etc, only problem we had was the hot water runs out very quickly! But the heating is always on, the apartment was never cold. Didn't have a problem getting...

So when we got information to pack towels, bed linen and even TOILETPAPER it was too late to cancel accommmodation. When we arrived, we get small room for 3 people, but the problem was, that we were 5 persons in very very small place. Very small kitchen with leaking kettle and crazy kitchener. The heating was destroyed so they have...

Firstly i would like to confirm that i am not a Chalet dwelling snob who fancied roughing it for a week. I've been staying in budget accommodation for the last twenty years on my skiing trips and this is by far the worst i have ever come across. I would describe the staff where horrendous,especially the battle axe who ,when...

I stayed here for one week as part of a University ski trip. The room was on the ground floor and had a lovely view and balcony. The slopes were not too far either - 5 min walk. However: 1. there are pull out beds all over the place so that they can squeeze up to 7 people in, one...

I wasn’t expecting much for the price I paid for the accommodation but the fact is that I did pay for it and for a payment I expect an adequate service. The room was bad enough, disposable bed sheets which were probably marginally thinner than cheap toilet roll weren’t quite enough to cover the quite clearly never cleaned beds. To...

There were 5 of us sleeping in the floor space you would expect for 2 at a push which even included someone on and under the sofa. They clearly never clean the place or wash any sheets. Sorry that's not strictly true, no sheets are provided to be washed anyway. They solely rely on the previous users to adequately clean...

The room was unclean. No sheets were provided. The staff tried to take our deposit for items that had not been damaged. All round it was a terrible place to stay and I would not go back. It may be cheap but the service provided is a disgrace.
