for location only this apartment was excellent - that's where it ends! It is very dated but we expected that from previous reviews/ photos. What we didn't expect was to find an absolutely filthy and smelly apartment! The toilet needed 6 flushes before the water was clear. There were empty loo rolls chucked onto a cabinet. The bath was filthy and full of human hair! the bed you had to pull down from the wall was covered in stains - we didn't use it! The carpet in the lounge area was filthy, and the pull out bed under the sofa you wouldn't let your dog sleep on it - dusty and dirty!
We didn't use the cooking facilities - tried to stay out of the apartment as much as possible!! Extra costs involved 100 Euro deposit for breakages etc was asked for but with the state of the apartment - we didn't give it! extra charge 39 Euros for 2 duvet covers and 2 towels. We have stayed in lots of apartments - and always write honest and fair reviews - sadly this apartment was horrendous!!!!
Good value studio accommodation in Flaine Foret, Close to everything, Flexible booking dates and responsive owner.
Stayed at the apartment in December 2015. The owner was responsive by email and the local agent met us late in the evening on arrival to hand over the keys.
Pros: Good location c. 250 mts from lifts and small shop and bakery.
Cons: The apartment is quite dated and we had problems with the bathroom. The toilet pipe leaked leading to a wet floor and soaking carpet in the hallway, which was very unpleasant. A plumber visited to rectify this but the same thing reoccurred the following day and detracted from our overall enjoyment of the property.
A minor point is that linen (10 EUR per person) and towels (6.50 EUR per person) are an additional cost. This is fine but is not made clear in the profile for the residence and we did not learn of this until after booking.
Stayed in this apartment for February half term ski trip, two adults and two children (Family). Although a little tight on space for four people, the location is excellent and the aparment was well presented. The owner was very helpful and easy to deal with.

We cannot thank the owner enough for her kindness. Bad road conditions meant we arrived at 0030, but with great directions/instructions we collected the key (having made special arrangements for us) and walked into a warm appartment. Very convenient 100m from Per Noix bar and restaurant and the shops and also easy for the slopes. Apartment has a good shower, it's quiet and is equipped with what we needed. Although not 5*, it suited us well and with powder up to our belts and an excellent guide in Mathieu Chasson (Mathieu.firstname.lastname@example.org) from ESF, we had a fabulous weekend. Thank you.
