First the good - JJ and Lucy (the 2012/13 hosts) are brilliant. Nice fun people who work hard. But they are gorgeous icing covering a faecel cake of a chalet.

The overall decor is beyond tired. Old and grubby foam sofas Broken stuff on the stairs. No decorative items. That ridged paint so beloved of bad chalets everywhere. It looks like a (very cheap) 1970's decorative job. It would have looked bad the first day it was done - time has not been kind.

But your first impression is actually a bit nicer. The communal rooms are large and not a complete horror. This is a budget chalet after all. The real issue happens when you get to your room, and you experience living there...

My twin room was ridiculously small. No wardrobe. One chest of drawers. Two door hooks and one screw in the wall to hang items. No where near enough storage. We ended up opening up our suitcases and using them as underbed drawers. The space between the beds so small that only one person could change at a time.

The bathroom was so tiny you couldn't open the shower door fully. And it was not possible to enter the shower without also having the bathroom door fully open. I like my friend but that is too much! We had to vacate the entire room if someone wanted a shower. The sink is a handbasin not a full sink so when you wash your face water goes everywhere - including over the toilet, which for space saving protudes under the sink. To wash your face you again need the bathroom door open to have the space to bend down. It would be a bad but dealable with single - It was a TERRIBLE double.

Safety is a problem. Bedroom doors don't lock and the main outside door was often left open. Theft / unwanted people invading wasn't a problem on my trip but I don't doubt it will be at some point. Don't take anything valuable and just pray your passport doesn't get stolen.

Lastly, there is the size issue. 22 rooms and economy pricing makes this a mecca for large groups. The week before us was apparently worse. The one we had were exactly how you would expect a large group of young males to be. Very drunk (lots of drinking games). Very noisy. Most members actually very nice. But meal times you were the little table in the restaurant with the large office party being riotous next door. I was woken almost every night as they rolled home drunk. Something I was reconciled with but to add insult to injury one inconsiderate member took to shouting a wake up alarm into every group room - waking the entire chalet. Lisa the chalet manager did nothing to quieten them and seemed only amused when the stole food from the kitchen and store room.

Ski France makes the group situation worse by offering unlimited beer for 50 euros. Giving a large group unlimited alchohol throws all the other chalet residents under the bus. Thanks Ski France !

This is an absolutely terrible chalet. Unsafe and unpleasant. Avoid it.

This year jan 2013 it is being operated by "Ski France" Another reviewer has complimented the chalet hosts JJ and Lucy and I agree they are good chalet hosts but they cannot make up for the awful chalet..
The rooms are very varied in size from small to cramped boxes that the beds will only just fit into. many of the ensuite facilities are best described as a cupboard with a loo and shower with not enough room for a full sized sink, towel rail, or shelf. Not all rooms have wardrobes, bedside cabinets, hanging hooks or tables. Electric sockets are difficult to access. There is no internal security and since the front door does not lock by default any passing drunk can wander in as happened during my stay. the sitting room has only 7 seats and 5 stools for 22 guests and the off air TV does not work. There are no doors to the dinning room or lounge and half door to kitchen so noise and cooking smells are not contained. the place is scruffy needing a complete re-paint, re-carpet etc.

Room Tip: The room off the lounge and the balcony rooms are just about adequate in size, but the tatty dump is best avoided

JJ and Lucy were excellent hosts and very attentive. The Chalet is in a good location about a 5 minute walk from the lifts in the morning although there is a bus if you manage to catch it.

The Chalet its self is very dated and poorly set out. There were not locks on the internal doors to valuables had to be left un-secured which is far from ideal. The Chalet also allows a lot of noise to travel from outside and from other guests rooms.

Good budget catered option but nothing more.

Room Tip: Only 2 double rooms in the apartment. You have to request these and are not guaranteed. Rest are twin rooms and vary massively in sizes.
