The chalet is a short 5 mins walk from the transport depot and first impressions was that it was very busy around with ski school and a bar right outside. However, by 7pm, the area was empty and every night was very quiet.
Ski in, ski out was fantastic - was even able to ski right to the door of the ski hire shop!
Hosts Chris and Archie were great, Chris's cakes amazing, good food every night and a filling hot breakfast every morning. Only niggle with the food was that it was part-baked loaves rather than fresh French bread. Plenty of nice wine.
Rooms were basic - a few more hooks and hangers would be useful. Bathroom arrangements interesting - en-suite baths and showers in most rooms, but with separate shared loos.
Avoriaz had fantastic snow - 3m in places, our week was very cold. Loved that the village was high, traffic free and had access to an huge ski area.
