We loved our apartments, had a brilliant holiday and hope to book the same for next year.
For us, the location was the best thing, some families might think it’s too far but we loved how quiet it was – you couldn’t hear a pin drop in the evenings. Unless you’re a proficient skier you can’t get to ski school without getting the horse-drawn carriage. We found that delightful anyway, and by day 3 our boys were skiing well enough to manage it. If you’re walking to a restaurant, you have quite a steep hill to get up… And if you’re going to the little minimarket it’s about an 8 minute uphill walk. We didn’t mind it at all, but it might be a problem for some.
Loved the actual accommodation, everything was amazing from the rooms to the bedclothes. It was like being in a hotel and an apartment, they happily changed the sheets if need be.
The boys could go over to reception and get a DVD which was great. The pool was amazing as were the sauna and spa facilities. The boot room was beautifully kept and not too busy.

The L’Amara apartment blocks are in a very, very nice place and I really enjoyed staying there. There were a few little niggle things that weren’t very clever; what let them down was that they didn’t have enough cleaners for the change over and us and about 300 other people had to sit around for about 3 hours while they sorted it out. There could have been better instructions for the hob and hot plate as it took ages to get it to work (even the rep couldn’t work it out). The way all four buildings are connected is by underground passageways so you can get from your building to the main bit without going outside which is ideal if you have bad weather in the week. Our teenage kids loved it as they were all staying in another building and had to use the tunnels a lot to get around. Inside was spotless though and the overall place was brilliant, with fantastic facilities (swimming pool, steam rooms, gym).
It’s ski in / ski out so getting out is really easy. There wasn’t a shop near as the place was so new, so we had to walk back into town. I wouldn’t mind betting they’ve put a shop in now as they had enough space to and it would be stupid not to.
