We stayed at The Lodge, Champery, having booked a week skiing in Champery. The accommodation is spacious and luxurious, if not minimalistic, with a lack of bedroom furniture on which to place clothes, or surfaces within the bedrooms to place objects such as watches, cameras etc.
The kitchen was like being at home with extensive cooking facilities and utensils. The fridge was large. The concierge staff were friendly and extremely helpful, letting us know where to eat and advising us about local attractions.
The hot tub was a real bonus at the end of a long day skiing making for prolonged hot relaxation with breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Sensibly, the house rules stated that no-one should use the hot tubs after 10pm to avoid disturbing neighbours. This is where the problems lay, as our neighbours, also on the ground floor ignored these rules using the hot tub with lots of noise and exuberance between 11.20 to past midnight on one night. This was mild in comparison with their noisy exuberance in the hot tub at 4.10am for 45 minutes. On both occasions, because of the proximity of their hot tub to our bedrooms, they woke us all, including the young children, and were reluctant to vacate the hot tub when we politely pointed out the 10pm rule.
Apart from this nuisance, which Mrs Miggins, the rental agents should be made aware of, we had an excellent stay.
