I have just spent the week with a large group in this challett and would summarise with the following points:
- fab staff
- good food
- ok location
- terrible smell in room 16,17 and 18. The Challet has an ongoing problem with the mainline sewage which has a major effect on some rooms. We had to sleep with balcony door open and door into the corridor. It was so bad one night they moved us to a local B&B. The smell is so bad 2 of us felt sick for 2 days and were unable to go up the slopes.
The challet staff tried everything to help us but were limited in what they could do. The area manger was unbelievably rude and was obviously incompetent and clueless on how to manage such issues.
Based on the above I could not reccomed this challet and warn all those going this season to make sure you avoid these rooms!!
