We stayed in the lovely Secret Chalet for a short break in the Autumn. Being in the French Alps and relatively high the views were simply breath taking. There’s plenty to do for all ages, and we took in all the local sites. There are many pleasant walks from the chalet, and we explored the area finding streams and lakes and the inspirational scenery. The chalet itself is warm, modern, light and incredibly well presented, with its own private hot tub with views across the mountain, and sauna too! We would definitely visit again.
I'd have to say the chalet was beautiful - brand new, very clean, well designed and cool but still homely. The views were amazing and while I had some initial reservations that we were a little 'out of the way', the location worked in our favour as we really relaxed. I was also concerned about having to drive to the ski lifts but again this really wasn't an issue. We will definitely go back as it's the best accommodation we've stayed in for this type of holiday and the skiing was first class.
