The accommodation was pretty much what you'd expect of a budget ski residence, but was a long way from the village centre, the ski lifts, and even the bus stop which supposedly served the hotel. The cooking facilities were less than adequate, but otherwise the room was OK. The staff were pleasant, and we just about managed to make ourselves understood speaking "Franglais." I wouldn't recommend staying here if you don't speak any French at all.
There is no oven provided, and our microwave didn't work properly - this was not resolved despite us reporting it on the first day. We struggled to self-cater, as not even basic cooking utensils were provided (we searched the village trying to buy a spatula) and there was absolutely no worktop space. If you want to use the kettle or toaster, you need to stand them on the electric rings or the sink drainer. Managed to devise a way of poaching eggs in espresso cups, but overall not ideal.
The "fitness room" is basically a couple of exercise bikes and a rowing machine in a shed between two chalets.

Just back from the perfect ski holiday, decent hotel, good food, perfect snow and great weather. The hotel is a self catering complex, a short walk from the slopes (ski in/out if your lucky) and 50 yrds from the shops and bars of the village/hamlet. All was fine with the room, good size, clean and quiet and with the facilities in general (although pool/changing room area could be looked at). Village quiet (lots of Dutch, which is fine) and skiing intermidiate at best. We were delighted at the price we paid (very cheap) but would have been unhappy to pay 3x and 4x more that the peak weeks attract.
