The quite long transfer ( over 2 hours ) was well forgotten by the time we got to our room overlooking the piste and had our first tea ! No fussing at reception, they take the cases to the room and the rooms are allocated on the coach on arrival.
Hiring the ski stuff on site is easy but as with everything there costs £sss, 120e for top grade skis.
The triple rooms are fine - plenty of hanging space and hangers - as well as hooks for damp ski gear.
The seating arrangements for dinner are on 3 timed social tables or you can sit as a group on however many you want to stay with your friends,The food was fine, choice of 3 of each course and as much wine as you want whilst you are at the table.
The only downside which was NOT Mark W fault was that the French have decreed that no one apart from their ski school is allowed to do guiding but there is a plan B, they have written scripts and every morning someone stands on the piste and arranges departures having taken numbers for a lunch booking. It was a bit like Lord of the Flies while the leader was appointed! We found that the groups fragmented after the first day but it did work well as a concept.
The staff were fine and helpful, the chalet was clean and well maintained - it is very warm everywhere especially in the bedrooms.
The boot room is very small with a heated boot rack but nowwhere to hang jackets whilst wrestling with putting boots on and the timed light kept going out but this is just a very small point.
Overall great and we would certainly return.
