Good location, fair price, problem with the heating!
This is a good sized apartment for a family or small group, the location was good, ski hire and restaurants are located in the same building. I dropped one star because the heating was not working all week, and it was cold! The owner gave us a part refund, but I would have preferred to be warm and comfortable. Hopefully this problem has since been fixed! The dishwasher was also not working, and there was no clothes washing machine in the apartment, but there is a (expensive) laundrette in the building. Good aspects - there was secure ski storage, adequate car parking, ski in/ski out location, though there is a short uphill walk of about 10 minutes needed to get to the main gondola from the bottom of the apartment's piste.
Overall it's a recommend, and I would consider coming back, the skiing was awesome!
Problems with hot water and heating (not to mention the smell from the drains)
Our stay was not all bad. This a a very large apartment for the money and for all its decor is basic it is perfectly adequate for a skiing holiday.
However, our overall stay was poor. There are problems with the water & heating (which really are basic requirements). On arrival there was an awful smell in one of the bathrooms so we decided to shut that one up and just use the other, BUT the hot water came out of the tap brown! and the smell was disgusting. In fairness to the owner a plumber was called and the problem "suposedly rectified". However, the smell continued to be in the apartment SOME of the time which meant we really were not satisfied the issue has been resolved.
In addition to this, the sink in the kitchen did not give us hot water so you need to boil the kettle to wash dishes (The dishwasher we used once and it leaked all over the floor). The tap was labeled for hot & cold but you got warmish water on the cold side and cold water on the hot side. This meant we did not know which side was which and coupled with the brown water problem we decided not to drink any water from the tap at all. We were not really that happy to cook with it either as we just were not confident it was coming from the mains.
The heating is not controlled from within the apartment and is set to timed. We visited when it was very cold and the heating was simply not sufficient. The kids had to sit in bed to stay warm. The owner let us know this was probably due to so many people through out the building having showers that the heating system could not cope. Whatever the cause we were cold so not good :-(
Other issues we had were small and you can cope with - there were no tea towels, wine glasses or ceareal bowls. The bedding was ripped on main bed, the duvets were really thin with little warmth. The ladder to the bunks needed a repair which my husband did while we were there to make it safe for the kids to use it.
I also want to mention the ski in: ski out aspect. This is definately a ski in apartment as you can come back to it from an extensive ski area. Skiing out is far more limited. There is a lift at the building however it only takes you to a very limited area (black and red only) before you need to ski down to town and walk to a bubble lift - it's a short walk of 5 mins but uphill in ski boots carrying ski's. Fine for adults.
So all in all, a large apartment but poor quality. We would not return or recommend it. :-(
Very good location for skiing.
Good location and functional apartment. Kitchen was perfect for cooking also for the bigger group.
Good sized apartment with excellent views
We had a good stay in the apartment. There was lots of room for the 4 adults staying and having 2 bathrooms was great.
The kitchen was well equipped and having an oven was great as you don't always get a full sized oven in holiday apartments.
There is a good bar and restaurant on the ground floor of the apartment block which was good because the apartments are quite a long way out of the main resort and the bus service wasn't very reliable, but that was mostly due to the weather.
The apartment is ski-in right to the door but the ski-out is a bit misleading as you ski down so far but then have to take your skis off and either walk up hill on the road to get to the gondola/cable car or downhill and through the town to get to the chair lift.
Overall, we had a great holiday and would highly recommend the apartment.
