We stayed at La Chaumiere during Christmas week in 2013 in the Aventine apartment with our family of 4 alongside two other families. The chalet is comfortable and warm with a nice balcony and plenty space. The chalet is a good 10 minutes walk from the main lifts but the ski hire service via Sport 2000 was amazing and allowed all kit to be stored a very short walk from the lifts which was a fantastic service which made me very pleased that I left my skis at home! Internet access is patchy so don't expect to run the office. By far the biggest issue in the chalet was however, that the chalet is used by the kids club for lunches. This effectively means that the chalet is out of bounds for lunch every day which is very frustrating and added a significant cost and annoyance to the holiday especially as our kids were not in the kids club and this was never offered as an option when booking. As the chalet staff said that the kids lunch option was often given as a "sweetener" when booking my advice would be to push hard for kids lunch to be included in your booking price if booking in Aventine or budget for a higher cost for your holiday!
