Reviews our hosts get.....
Chalet Ava had the friendliest hosts
Had such a good time at Chalet Ava with Ted and Sam. Really friendly hosts that were able to adapt to everyone’s needs and personalities in the chalet. They did everything with a smile on their face and we all felt at home straight away.
We were staying in the 3 person room on the ground floor which we thought would be a bit loud being on the same level as the living room but with the door shut it was all good. Comfy beds.
Overall good value for money, great hosts, and La tania has a really sound vibe, can’t wait to come back – EB
We stayed at Chalet Jaqueline which is in a great location for piste access at either end of the day and for the resort in the evening. The bedrooms are nice and comfortable with plenty of storage. The main attribute is the wonderful hosting provided by Melinda and Jonty who were very affable and clearly committed to ensuring that we enjoyed our stay. The meals and afternoon cakes were delicious and all our needs were catered for. We were made to feel very much at home in a lovely warm relaxed atmosphere and I would highly recommend a stay here – IP
