this really is true ski in ski out.
pick up your skis from the rental shop and straight onto a relatively easy (not for complete beginners) slope down to the lifts.
we had a family trip and rented 3 rooms - two single room suites and one one-bedroom suite - so we had somewhere a bit bigger to congregate.
Each had cooker, microwave, dishwasher, pans utensils to do as much self catering as you wanted.
There was a launderette on each level, and a small shop by reception for milk, coffee, essentials etc.
The beds were good, the rooms comfortable and beautifully kept by the housekeeping staff. Only criticism of the rooms was the slightly gloomy choice of colours - a small point in an otherwise immaculate room.
The problems with breakfasts being overcrowded seem to have vansihed because there are now two rooms to eat in, and guests are encouraged to take breakfast back to rooms if they want.
Fresh fruit, fresh waffles, toast coffee, juices etc - everything you need as long as youre not addicted to bacon and eggs!
At the end of the day, you ski back in , leave your skis at the rental shop (dont have to rent to do this), then into a hot tub or warm swim. Also at this time free coffee,tea and cakes are laid on.
There is an underground car park. In some previous reviews i have read that access is difficult. We rented a HUGE 8 seater 4WD from avis - the biggest passenger vehicle they do, and there was no problem. As regards previous criticisms about finding the location - its on the map, on the sat nav, and if you drive up painted cliff road, its at the end!
With a free bus service down to the village every 15 minutes, this combines a reasonable and comfortable stay in a quiet ski in/ ski out location with convenience for dining out etc using the bus.
My only criticism was that although room maintenance was excellent (faulty bulbs changed immediately etc, one lift was broken down for the whole week which caused some queueing - although never for more than a few minutes.
we'll come again when we next visit our son there.
