The place is sound - nice keen staff, decent accommodation. The building's not pretty from the outside - blame the architect. But the high valley it's set in is superb. 5000 feet up - already higher than Ben Nevis fellow Brits - and it was still glorious Summer, T shirt weather for walks outside and it looked like young kids...

This residence is a great example of everything that is bad about dated French ski resorts. A concrete box, in bad need of maintenance, smelly and no views if you are not assigned a room with a balcony. I would recommend staying at the lower village of Les Carroz, about 8km down the road and avoid the concrete jungle of...

Dear Bikehikers, I took good note of your opinion and I thank you for having taken time to share him. I understand your disappointment as for the architecture of the station of Flaine. It's a very attractive ski resort under the snow. I hope that you will keep all the same a pleasant stay in our residence. Very kind regards,...

The location of the property is great for the ski slopes but the rooms are basic and the beds are very uncomfortable. The South view is great but you do pay more for it. The ski boot rooms are also great as they have lots of room to put your equipment on.

Booked with Sunweb and had a great time. Everything was just as described and was ready for us on our arrival. Ok the apartments are a bit tired and maybe could do with some upgrades and refurbishment but everything was spotlessly clean and serviceable. The apartment was a good size and the kitchen adaquate. For the price paid it was...

We lived in a very large apartment because we are a family of five and it was very pleasing. The view was amazing and the staff were so helpful. You can hire lots of equipment such as hoovers and toasters and there were many places to eat near by as well as locker rooms for the skis which was just...

Good, clean, well maintained accommodation. This was basic, honest accommodation delivered at a reasonable price. We were a party of 5, the apartment had ample space and amenities to support us all in comfort. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The location was very good, close to main ski lifts in flaine. What is there not to like?

Stayed here during 3rd week in March, with Crystal Ski. Accommodation much better than anticipated. Check-in really smooth thanks to Margot's professional attitude. As we'd arrived very early we were informed the room wasn't ready which we expected but they texted to say when it was. Apartment was set up for 5 which for 2 of us was very spacious...

We booked this place to spend some relaxation time getting over the death of my mother while doing some skiing. The check in was chaotic and there is not a bar/lounge actually in the resort as suggested by the profile. Definitely not a cute place to relax. As a frequent traveller I was surprised at how tired the fittings and...
