Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The charming Hotel Gai Soleil was once a farm in the mountains. Dating from 1829, this farm has been renoved with care and furnished with an aim to preserve all its rustic character and warmth. You can relax in among the various flowering trees and you can enjoy the spectacular view of the Montjoie Valley. The Gai Soleil is exceptionally located in the heart of the resort and five minutes from the ski lifts. ... more   less

“We stayed in Room 4 which had a balcony overlooking the village. This room was very quiet however it only had a small shower in the bathroom. Room 5 is also a balcony room but has a bath with shower. Superb rooms.”
