Reviews

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.
