Excellent, clean, spacious and warm appartment in the centre of Cervinia. Comfortable beds, compact kitchen with everything you need except no oven. Less than 5mins to supermarket, restaurant and slopes. Only small negatives are that the hot water tank is small and hence after 3 showers there was no hot water but did warm up quite quickly. The other small issue was that the apartment could be a little noisy at night as close to bars and restaurants but music died down by 11pm. Overall, I would recommend this appartment and Cervinia - great resort with fantastic skiing (even in April)
We had a great weekend staying in this apartment. It was so central and perfect for our group of six.
Pros: Excellent location with 200 metres walk to Cretaz lifts, good storage, comfortable dining/living spaces, dishwasher and washer is a plus, reasonable views from bedrooms and side mountain view from living space. Good kitchen set up etc ( except lack of mugs), DVD player. Easy walk to market and shops.
Cons: For 3 adults, consecutive showers not possible unless very short & timed . Circuit breaker kept flipping if we operated more than 2 or 3 devices in the kitchen at once. Some warnings in the room guide would have been helpful. Vacuum is missing pieces and is unusable. Cleanliness generally below standard, apartment had not been serviced or cleaned before our arrival. Clumps of dust everywhere. Shower tiles covered in redish mould. More cleaning sprays and liquids would be helpful. Mop supplied is old and dirty. Many items coming out of draws and cupboards needed cleaning before use. Draws full of crumbs and dust. No extraction in kitchen so ceiling paint is peeling. Wifi barely adequate for 3 adults checking email and facebook with no major up or downloads. Mattress in master lumpy. Pillows need replacement. Loud and constantly repeated music and noise from ice rink most nights only till 8.30 or so but longer and louder on ice hockey nights! No English TV . Extremely dusty in ski storage area.
Would find this place depressing for any longer than our 7 night stay.
We had a wonderful time
The apartment was a perfect home from home and had a perfect position for both lifts and supermarket
The kitchen was well stocked and the arrangements with the rental agency very simple
Ski hire from skiset very easy to walk to
Drive from Turin airport a simple route 90 mins
Cervinia itself was perfect for a family
The slopes certainly not packed and no queues for lifts and sun perfect snow and lovely food
Thank you for renting your property to us see you again
Superb week away. Read the pack when you get there. Exit to slopes via lower floors. Lovely apartment. Sleeps 5 comfortably. Very central everything on your doorstep and way cheaper than Zermatt. Careful when you buy your passes routes over to Zermatt can be closed if bad weather. Deffo get over there for a few days as lots of skiing available over there. Great comms from Engel and free parking in the resort. There's nightlife if you can find it. If not make your own. Apres ski moves around the bars so just ask the local workers where it's happening. Easy to walk everywhere.
Fantastic location, not ideal for a small child though as pram didnt fit in the lift. A bit dusty inside too but other than that great place to stay. We would stay again
This was the families first trip to Cervinia. Pictures and maps don't do it justice. The apartment is located ca50 meters from the walking street and overlooks the ski area. The gondola is maybe 100m from the apartment.. around the corner and up some stairs....
The apartment itself is quietly located and on the fourth floor.. thank you elevator! The beds are comfortable and kitchen nicely stocked with plates and pans .. no oven but a dishwasher that we never used. It is a little dated and needs a small renovation but overall very very nice.
Say hello to the man who runs a ski clothing shop on the bottom floor. Very nice man!!!!
