We stayed with another couple in March this year.Booked an apartment through Crystal sleeping 6 (one double bed and two bedrooms with 2 x single beds.) Would have been cramped if 6 of us as not enough comfy seats for all. It contained the majority of things needed for a ski trip/self catering option but is in need of a refurbishment. I think the fact it has 4 stars is due to pool and sauna which was clean and presentable. Only used it once as can get very busy.
There is a boot/locker room which is handy but it was very cold and the locker a bit damp. We took our boots to the room to keep warm.
The apartment could have been cleaned a bit more thoroughly, and no, I am not being fussy.
TV remote needed new batteries but this was remedied quickly and everyone we dealt with were very helpful and polite. Reception is in the building next door but really not a problem.
There is a small supermarket just across the road, pretty well stocked with frozen and fresh foods, bread etc.
I would compliment our Crystal rep John who visited several times and was very helpful.
The apartments are in the Les Balcones area of the Val Thorens village. This is the highest point so it is quite a walk down and UP, especially in ski boots. There is a shuttle bus which runs every 20 minutes and does a loop so several stopping points. Useful for the evening walk back up the hill.
We were in the Crocus room and it doesn`t get much sun. There were no sun loungers or similar to sit on balcony.
