The Chalet is in a wonderful position, both for access to the ski slopes and the breath taking views. The facilities at the chalet were fantastic for post skiing – use of the sauna and the swimming pool and the availability of the lovely warm hot tub while over looking the beautiful snowy mountain range provided a welcome end to the day.
The actual apartment was also very comfortable and warm. It was well appointed with all appliances you would need in the kitchen area. It was lovely to have a log burner with unlimited logs at our disposal – although not entirely necessary as the heating was excellent. The apartment had a wonderful terrace where we were able to eat throughout the day and appreciate the beautiful views as well as having a dining table in the kitchen area. It provided a comfortable lounge area - the sofa here would convert to a large double bed. Excellent having free and efficient Wifi throughout the property.
The Village of Villard Reculas has all the facilities you would need – Small supermarket but well stocked with food, drink, gifts etc; two restaurants (although we did not use them as we preferred to use the apartment); ski/sports shop with discounted ski hire and a very helpful tourist information office. A wonderfully quiet village, excellent for our needs but allows easy access to the more lively Alpe d’Huez if that’s what you require.
We had a warm welcome from the former owner who was able to deal with any issues that occurred during our stay.
We would certainly recommend this apartment to anybody and definitely hope to return very soon.
The best place to stay in the French Alps. The Chalet is beautiful - the owner is the sweetest person you could meet and the Village is superb. I have been going here for 13 years.... it's amazing !!!
