I was really impressed with our apartment, it was perfectly ideal for what we needed. The boys were studying for exams and there was room for them to do that. It was perfect for three of us, with four it would probably be fine too, maybe a bit cosy but you’re out on the slopes all day anyway.
There are ski lockers – we were on the first floor and the lockers were on the second floor. It was easy as you could get the lift to the lockers and ski out once you had your stuff, however although it was great if you have skis, it didn’t work so well if you had snowboards so we ended up opting to keep our things in the hall of our apartment, which worked fine – it was much easier to get out this way as the locker room was a bit cluttered.
The location is perfect and access onto the slopes is ever so easy. The only downside is getting out on a snowboard as opposed to skis because it’s quite flat – on skis the location is perfect as you can just push yourself along. This was only a very minor thing. Access from Le Lac to the other village was easy with regular bus services.
The nearest shop is probably only about 50 yards down the road, but it’s the most expensive shop in the village - about two times the price of another Spar shop, which is just across the village square by the ski lifts. We ate out as much as we ate in, but the kitchen in the apartment was fine.
There were a couple of things we needed but we spoke to the staff and they sorted everything straight away.

You can ski right out which is really good and then at the end of the day you pretty much ski off the piste and into the apartment.
It took us a couple of days to work out where the nearest places were, but it’s a bit of a hike to the nearest supermarket (there is a little shop within 50m in front of the atrium but it was quite small and closed quite early).
Inside was really basic and definitely dated, but we knew what we were getting. We had two separate rooms with 2 single beds in each and then a convertible sofa bed in the lounge (which was basically a mattress) where you had a pretty rubbish TV. Heating, hot water etc were all fine.
