Having read the reviews we were a bit worried about what we would find! However, the apartment block is ideally situated with a ski hire shop in the block (Skiset) and ski school (ESF)meeting right outside. There is a small square with a number of bars/restaurants. We could still ski back to the door even in April. Ski lockers were no better or worse than any others we have encountered over the last 20 years - at least there was somewhere to sit and get your boots on! We walked straight out of the back door, on to a blue piste and down to the Bergerie chair. This is what we want in a skiing holiday...
The apartment (mezzanine, sleeping six) was clean and well equipped and much the same as other apartments we have hired in French resorts. There was only four of us but we accept that you should always go bigger if you don't want to use sofa beds. Booking in was ok, usual excessive form filling and we did not have to provide a deposit just card details. The lady on reception was a bit brusque but explained everything in English (which she shouldn't have to as we are in France). Rather a long inventory to complete, which highlighted anything missing but then missing items weren't replaced - think this was just to scare us in to being extra careful!
We ate in most lunch times and every evening - no problems cooking for our group of seven in our room. Combination microwave was a bit of a waste of time so we just used the hobs. Small fridge but full size dishwasher plus coffee machine and kettle.
Loads of hot water, although our friends did experience a shortage in their apartment.
We took our own bedding and towels, as we drive, but for those hiring reception seemed to be organised.
Parked at the door too for free!
