Good size appartment for 4 people I certainly wouldn’t recommend anymore than that stay in it . Ski locker - no where big enough to handle our skis & snowboards. Gettin luggage up to and down from the room to the lift on first and last day a challenge. We arrived very early satday bout 8am. Room not available till 5pm. No luggage lockup to leave stuff. No where to change if you wanted to ski. Appartment very well equipped great location. Very quiet at night ( well it was while we were there ) supermarket & tabac on site. Cosy bar downstairs bustop 5 min walk outside . All in all great value for money- would I stay again. YES. But I’d pay for an extra day so we could get in when we arrive .
We loved our time at this apartment. The reservation process was easy and Michel communicated timely and effectively. Michel was kind enough to help us arrange a Christmas tree (sans decorations) which worked perfectly as upon settling in we spent time as a family decorating the tree.
During check-in we had a few hiccups but those were easily handled by Mr. Grannat (the caretaker) and we began our week long stay in Val d'Isere. The hiccups included confusion about check-in time (it is 4:30 but information on contract and Homeaway say 3 or 4 pm) and about linens (which the cost is 20 Euros per person).
We enjoyed the apartment which had all the comforts and was easily manageable for my family of 4 with two adults and children aged 12 and 14. We cooked most meals in the apartment and ate on the mountain when skiing for lunch. The shuttle is just a five minute walk away and town is only about 10 minute walk from apartment. We used the shuttle when skiing since it drops you at the base of each of the locations and walked when going into town.
As for shopping there is a small market just down the road affiliated with the gas station SPAR and then there is another in town called Sherpa. The apartment was outfitted with spices and such but for perishable items and snacks we shopped ourselves.
Traffic can be a problem getting to and from the resort according to the Val d'Isere tourism website but we didn't experience any upon arrival. Leaving was another matter and that was partly because we had a huge snowstorm the day before and day we left. We used snow chains and there were numerous accidents going down the mountain and some road flooding. It took us 11 hours to get to Geneva so just plan ahead. This is not a slight on the apartment or the resort itself, just advice for others.
Mr. Grannat, the caretaker, was wonderful and so was the owner. We really enjoyed our time at this apartment. It was perfect for our family and we would gladly recommend this apartment to others and return ourselves. Thanks again for everything.
