Booked a last minute ski holiday package with Inghams for a party of 3 and needed a single room so Sud Ovest chose us really as only hotel available without a punitive supplement. Photo in the brochure and location at the top of the village made me think "hmmm! but, ah well at least it's a bargain."
Pleased to be proved very wrong; a lovely friendly welcome from the owner who showed us to our room which was fine, just big enough with plenty of wardrobe/hanging space. Shower in the bathroom was compact but lashings of hot water available. No duvet but bed comfortable and the room was warm enough so this wasn't a problem and spare blankets & pillows were available. We looked out over the adjoining apartments and on to the mountains beyond, maybe not chocolate box pretty but plenty of light. TV with CNN/Eurosport/BBC World/France24 as well as all the local channels and there was free wifi throughout too.
Walk to & from the slopes was no more than a 5-10 minute warm-up & warm-down stroll. We left our boots & skis in a slope-side locker as the hotel has a deal with one of the rental shops in town.
Breakfasts were OK - typical Italian buffet style and you might get bored but certainly wouldn't starve.
Dinner was great though, choice of 2 starters & 3 mains every night and everything we ate was excellent (and whilst I thought the veggie main options didn't look that inspiring - omelettes etc. this wasn't a problem for us). Fine choice of desserts to fill up any available space you might have had at the end of the meal. The wine was fabulous especially if you chose local and let Renzo guide your choice and very reasonable too.
All in all we loved it here, friendly staff, decent room, great food and fabulous wine. Wouldn't hesitate to go back.
