We stayed here for 4nts in late January. There was a group of 7 and we shared 2 apartments which were each very different. Both 2 bedroom apartments. Overall the apartments are lovely, clean, fresh and have fantastic views over the valley below. One of our apartments was on the top floor with a balcony (large) and the other on the ground floor corner, so walked straight out onto the snow, which our 3yr old loved! The pool was freezing, our 3yr old wouldn't go in it, and the adults had to brace themselves when entering the water! Which was a shame because we one of the primary positives to book it was because of the pool. The hot tub was nice, so stayed in there! The actual building sits back from the road, down quite a steep drive. You definately need your snow chains on otherwise you won't get back up! Also, it's dangerous walking down in ski boots. We witnessed some poor women slip right back and smack her head on the ground.. ouch! I don't understand why the management don't grit it because it's dangerous to say the least. The ski bus stop is right outside (route de Vonnes) and takes you 3 mins to the main telecabine or the ski bus station where you catch the other buses out. The buses are infrequent later on in the day. The walk to the village from the apartments is slightly downhill and takes about 15 minutes. There is a a well stocked supermarket in the village as we cooked on a couple of nights, and got everything we needed. The little train that runs around the village for about 3euros is great value, as this is a great way to see chatel and get your bearings!
Lovely, new and clean
Bus stops right outside
Lovely warm hot tub

Pool was freezing
Dangerous drive/walk down to it.
Check out was over half an hour
One other point is that we booked through simply-chalets.co.uk which included the end of stay clean, but with other companies this isn't the case, AND the management are very fussy to say the least when checking you out.
