An excellent location for skiing with great access, ski in- out within 10-15 metres of ski room, with good access to a variety of ski lifts from les menuires central pistes.
We have stayed at this location for the last 2 years, and had 2 very enjoyable ski holidays, and find it quite comfortable, and good value for money. We have stayed both times with 2 adults 2 children (3+ 2). The town of Reberty has an excellent swimming pool/ sports centre with children's indoor play area. We will definitely consider staying at the same location next year
The daily bread/ croissants delivery service is excellent, along with free DVD, baby chair and cot. The mid week supply of fresh towels etc is ideal. Have yet to try the sauna. The chalet we stopped in had a child play area / lounge in the ground floor entrance which was ideal for getting out of the apartment with the children. Staff excellent, run very smoothly.
Some minor frustrations around the free wifi which is quite lacking bandwidth in busy times, dropping out and requiring me to repeatedly enter the username and passcode (string of alphanumerics). Also the kitchen can be quite small for evenings where you do want to eat in, lack of worksapce and cupboard storage space (microwave, kettle, toaster and coffee machine take all of the workspace). The bed and bedroom space is small but adequate. This year we booked the underground car parking, but found the low to the ground car (Audi A6) would not fit into the car park due to the steep driveway in. The outdoor covered parking the previous year was ideal.
The apartments are quite remote from Les Menuires accessed via walking down a winding path or catching free shuttle bus. Also remote from other local Reberty facilities, but accessible using bus. Although there is an excellent mountain restaurant (l'etoile) next to the residence on the adjacent ski slope, about 50m walk slightly up/across an adjacent nursery piste slope.
