“A cheap alternative to Chamonix, which can be very expensive.”
Reviewed March 5, 2009

You get what you pay for with this chalet, the rooms are basic and clean, breakfast is good and conviniently timed.

The only problem I had with this chalet is that it's a 10-15 minute walk to the bus stop and when carrying skis and boots, it can be tyring, but you get what you pay for. The chalet is quite some distance form Chamonix and there are a couple of resteraunts nearby and a hotel, if you can't be bothered going into Chamonix, which we couldn't due to the logistics involved and returning bus times not being convinient.

But the skiing is good, Chamonix itself is very expensive, so this is a good alternative if you can cope with the walk. I would reccomend this place but would stress the walk to the bus stop and waiting may put some off.
