We stayed at Les Lutins in April 2013. We picked it due to being on a budget and it being our first skiing holiday - I'd done 2 weeks previously and my partner had skied when she was at school. Lutins is perfectly located at the base of the slopes with the main Jandri lift about 100m from the locker room, and also the white eggs lift up to the ski school. There are also many blue runs accessible at the base of the slope (also 100m) some not requiring ski passes. The hotel is also ideally located for restaurants and bars in every direction as well as shops and takeaways. The bar in the hotel is also brilliant! We had lunch here on our second day an never went anywhere else after! The rooms are basic but cleaned to perfection, staff are friendly and with it's ideal location this hotel is spot-on.
