Spent four days at the end of January with my two sons and and two friends.
Location was perfect for the train station and for eating out in Bourg, as we wanted the B&B option as eating chili con carne in France was not appealing.
The Chalet deffinately needs a women's touch! Sion does his best but is only there for the boarding and the levelsof cleanliness overall reflected this. Apart from the changeover day our shower/toilet never got got cleaned. there was no complimentary soap. The floor mat for the shower was disgustingly dirty, and after we checked out it was left out again for the incoming guests!! The bedrooms were ok if you didn't mind the cobwebs. Locks on the bedroom doors should be essential. Leaving all your belongings at the mercy of other guests is disconcerting and should you lose money,camera, passport etc who would be responsible?
If you are travelling by car be advised that the Chalet has no car parking. You need to buy a ticket or face a fine!!
IMHO the Chalet could be fantastic but needs to address some of the issues raised.
