Guestbook comments from the owner
Nous avons passé de très bonne vacances, le chalet a repondu a toutes nos attentes, autant pour la propreté que pour l équipement général qui est très complet, excepté une rallonge electrique qui serait très utile pour les fondues ou les raclettes.. les voisins nous ont depanné donc pas de probleme . Le garage est très pratique pour les skis et le materiel ainsi que le parking .Nous gardons vos coordonnées pour une future location
