Quiet. Italians are friendly
Dog poo everywhere!! Dead village. Scruffy.

Full review

Just returned from a week in Claviere. Stayed bed only at Hotel Bes. Could not possibly afford to eat or drink there! Not even a cup of tea given for breakfast. Nice clean hotel - but be prepared to pay. Spa and hot tub etc are EXTRAS. Village seemed to be a ghost town during the evening. Most restaurants closed and no-one about. We like to be quiet but this was extreme. Dog mess everywhere, even on the ski slopes!! Italian's are very friendly though. Ski lifts a bit old - carpet lift for beginers to practice on was lethal. Bits of metal sticking out all over and rarely working!! No easy runs at all for beginers. Having said all this my 10 year old, who had never had a pair of skis on before went to the ski school and by the fourth day he was able to do the black runs with confidence. Everything very expensive as it is a long way from any where to do food shopping so be prepared. We shall not return here nor reccommend the resort. Montgenevre - just 2 miles away has fabulous skiing although a very plain, tatty resort.
