spending new year in the alps

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another family at New Year. It was wonderful being able to simply walk across the road to the button lift. The views from the chalet of Mont Blanc were magnificent. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place. The skiing was fantastic. We hired a local private moniteur who took us to all the places most people don't get to! We would definitely go again. Praz de Lys has some lovely restaurants too, notably Jean de la Pipe.

Encore un très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné pour la seconde fois dans l'appartement de Charlotte et avons pleinement apprécié le logement confortable et spacieux, de surcroît très près des remontées mécaniques (juste la route à traverser pour rejoindre le téléski du Canevet ou descendre la piste Hôtel).

Merci à notre hôtesse pour son accueil toujours chaleureux.

What else?

This is our fourth stay, and certainly not the last.
