We arrived at l'oxalys in January 2013 for a week of skiing, a group of 8 friends. We booked the large triplex appartment for 8, which included:
1 room with king size bed and en-suite bathroom
1 room with twin beds and en-suite bathroom
Living-room and kitchen all in one, with table for 8, couch and 1 armchair, TV and fireplace
2 rooms with twin beds and en-suite shower (no toilet). The shower was separated by revolving doors and so all the humidity came in
The reception is nice, worth 4 stars in France. Moreover, there is a Michelin star restaurant downstairs, but quite pricy (did not try it). The pool area is also very nice, but quite small. The jacuzzi can comfort 5 people maximum, and the pool is maybe 15 sqm large. The photos which are shown online are not quite representative.
We had an issue with the heating systems, as you never know how to turn them on/off. Also, there is a limited number of sockets in the appartment. If you come by car, make sure that you book a place very in advance as the places are limited and it's quite nice to have it downstairs rather than in an outside parking in town.
The terrace is brilliant offering very nice views of the valley.
All in all, we had a very nice time and the appartment was nice. For sure much better than the others in town. Also the area is really quiet and far away from the big buildings. I recommend it and definetely I would come back anytime.
