Owner's Response: We have just finished renovating this traditional house in the historical area. Our aim is to provide other skiers and families a luxury comfortable stay with all mod cons of 21st century, which include generous size rooms, en suites, boot dryer, log burning stove and much more. The fully equipped kitchen is aimed to entice those interested in food to be able to create a gastronome experience which is unusual in a ski house. The famous 3* Restaurant La Bouite is about 1 minute walk away from the property. We can even ski back to the property if the snow conditions prevail. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to you staying again.

We were very happy with the accommodation, facilities, cleanliness and location; with only 7 minutes walk from the main ski lift: St Martin de Belleville and only 30 seconds walk to one of the best restaurants in the Alps we were very impressed. Already booking our trip for December this year!
