Just got back from a week's skiing with Skiworld with 5 friends and we had a fantastic time. The location is fantastic and so ski in/ski out that one of my friends accidentally skiing into the boot room. So no dreaded walking in ski boots or waiting for a cramped ski bus. Then a short ski to the two major ways of getting up the slopes. We were split into two rooms and the room of 4 was pretty cramped with not a lot of storage space - some coat hooks and a couple of mirrors near power sockets would have made a massive difference. However, this shouldn't take away from what is one of the best ski holidays I've ever had. The staff are all lovely, good fun and friendly coming up and saying hello when you see them out making you feel like you're welcome rather than just a guest. They make you feel very welcome. The food is absolutely delicious and yes there isn't a lot of choice but you don't need it as what you do get is lovely. The free wine with dinner is very drinkable and carafes are continually topped up until coffee. We used the hot tub and sauna and found it a nice way to relax after a day on the slopes. The whole set up is very sociable and we met lots of people. The delicious bread and homemade cake from 4.00-5.30pm was a great way to chat to other guests about their day. We got our deal through Skiline and got an excellent bargain. Based on my experience I would look to book with SkiWorld (the operator) again and would definitely recommend L'Escapade. Our room wasn't great but to be honest, we only slept in it and all the other many positive aspects more than made up for it!
