Spent 2 weeks here in July 2013. Pleasant chalets in beautiful surroundings. The pool and sun terrace was great, not huge but never had a problem with overcrowding. There are several bars/restaurants within 5 minutes walk which are open every day. There's also a boulangerie (bakery), supermarket, launderette and a delicatessen within 5 mins walk too. You most definitely need a car as its about a 20 minute drive to get off the mountain and there are only 4 buses a day. Chambery and Aix Les Bains are the nearest towns and are both roughly 30 minutes drive. Annecy is about 40 minute drive but well worth a visit as its so beautiful and the lake is lovely for swimming or hiring a pedalo or motor boat (25 euro/69 euro respectively for one hour). There is also Lac De Bourget (a lake) near to Aix les Bains which has swimming and A BBQ area at Veryiers du Lac area of the lake. I would happily stay at the Chalets Du Berger again and would definitely visit the Rhone Alps region again. There are several large supermarkets around Chambery and Aix Les Bains too and both are serviced by train. From Lyon airport you can get a tram to Lyon Part Dieu train station then a train to Chambery. A taxi up or down the mountain will cost anything from 45 euro up to 65 euro depending what time of day you use them.
