Very comfortable accommodation and generally well equipped. I’d be happy to stay here again, but there are a few points to bear in mind. Firstly, some things are not included:
1) I think we paid somewhere in the region of 38 euros for the week’s parking in the hotel car park. There are no readily available alternative parking options that I am aware of.
2) Although the pool is free use of the sauna costs extra, but at least you can opt not to use that (unlike the car park).
3) If you would like your beds made up for you, then there is an extra charge. If you don’t opt for that service, then you are simply handed a linen pack and a towel pack as you check in. When you leave, you return your towels and linen to collection points.
4) End-of-rental cleaning is not included, which seems to be a standard thing in France. You can opt to pay for someone to do this, but the cost seemed prohibitively high. Perhaps they don’t have enough staff to clean all the apartments in the time available to them. You need to allow enough time to do this before the 10 am check-out deadline. You might also want to pack some cleaning materials.
Also, there were a couple of surprising omissions: there are TV sets in the living area and in each bedroom, but there is no DVD player. The kitchen is generally well equipped but there were no sharp kitchen knives.
Wi-fi was included but the service was very patchy in our apartment. For a lot of the time there was no signal.
Transport: there is a free shuttle bus service that brings you back up the mountain from Flaine Foret and Flaine Forum (there is a ski run going down). Tip: walk down the hill (not up to the main entrance) when you get off the bus and enter the complex via one of the lower levels of the car park and take the lift up. NB: the shuttle bus service stops at 6.30 pm. That’s OK if you’re happy to spend your evenings in the apartment, but not so good if you want to visit a bar or the cinema in Flaine / Flaine Foret.
Ski hire: there is a branch of Ski Republic situated in the apartment building, which makes life easy. It’s advisable to book in advance and see what deals are on offer.
