Full review

This was my first visit to France. Went with group my choice would have been Austria or Italy. We arrived about 6 hours late due to weather conditions. Things could only get better, and they did the moment we opened the to our apartment
The quality was more than we could have hoped for, it was home from home. Wi Fi, bathrobes, slippers and plenty of living space (unlike most apartments in France) We had a 2 bedroom apartment in the SAS Raddison could not find a fault with the accommodation. ( Get WiFi code of each phone, ipad, Lap Top)

Our plan was to eat out every night but due to the price, lack of choice and poor reviews we decided to cater for ourselves. This was a first for our part but due to the high quality of the apartments it became part of our apres ski. We would go to the 2 pubs for the happy hour then back to the apartment for diner and drinks. Drinks were 8 euro a pint ( 4 euro in happy hour)

The ski area is vast and has something to suit everybody. The lift system was very impressive with little or no queueing.
The only slight negative was the runs back to the village could get busy and a bit icy bar from that the skiing was 10 out of 10. We will defiantly go back.
