Without doubt this is the best ski hotel that my family and i have ever stayed in. La Farandole won the 2009 Best french ski hotel, very well deserved. We have just returned home on sunday 3rd January 2010. Please note that there are some adverse comments about the price of drinks on tripadvisor. The prices have been reduced this ski season and are perfectly acceptable for a ski hotel. The attention to detail was superb. Michel the manager runs this hotel superbly and all the staff were without doubt, friendly, efficient and fun. Margot and Celine were our waitresses for the week and were exceptional.
Corin who runs the bar was particularly friendly and efficient and was very helpful with my eight year old daughter who would always ask for our drinks in French.
The food was sensational, the presentation, selection and the number of courses. There was a fantastic New year's eve meal complete with champagne at no additional charge.
The mini bus drivers, Adam (canadian) and Ian were both hyper efficient and would give lots of local advice and tips.
The sauna, steam room and swimming pool were very clean and although not switched on until 1600 daily would be turned on as requested or if the weather was inclement.
Th whole La Farandole experience was absolutely fantastic. KEEP up the good work MICHEL and staff. WE WILL BE BACK. Thank you.More
