The apartment is homely with plenty of space for our family of four. The location is incredible, being so close to the chair lifts and it’s view of the Matterhorn. Like other reviews, the furniture and style has a rustic charm but it has everything you need and there are so many restaurant nearby.
We stayed for UK half term week in an apartment in Condo Montabel. As an experienced family skier I have found that things are made so much easier when you get the right location and this property delivers that in a big way. The condo front door can be no more than 30m from the Cretaz chairlift with a ski hire shop and the Breuil-Cervinia ski school under the accommodation on the ground floor. The ski pass office and meeting point for lessons are also right next to the chair lift. Whilst being in a quiet location you are also a 2 minute walk to many of the resorts bars, restaurants and shops and a 5-10minute walk from the supermarket. The apartment itself had a good size living/dining area with 2 bedrooms having a double bed and a pair of bunk beds. The sofa provided a further fold out bed if required. The kitchen was quite cramped but had everything you would need for self catering. A nice touch was that the owner had left some groceries in the cupboards (presumably from previous occupants) so tea/coffee sugar were available along with a bottle of wine some olive oil and other condiments. I understand some people may be a little squeamish about using food stuff left behind but for us it was clear that some thought and consideration had gone into making the apartment feel like a home. The apartment had a number of individual pieces of furniture and a selection of books (Italian) which gave it a rustic charm. The owner communicated well with us and met us at the apartment to show us around and hand over the keys. We found her to be polite and accommodating. We had a small problem on the first night with a window shutter and reported this to the concierge Ms Beatrice. The owner contacted us and assured us that it would be taken care of. First thing in the morning (Sunday) a handyman arrived and fixed it. I cannot fault the manner in which both the owner and the concierge dealt with us during our stay.
If you are looking for the convenience of doorstep skiing in a beautiful location this is certainly one to consider.
We had a great stay in this fantastically located apartment - with kids, it was great to just cross the road and be at the Cretaz chairlift. Wonderful views from the balcony, and plenty of room compared to some apartments in the main bedroom. We really appreciated the tea, coffee, pasta, tomatoes, wine, beer, oil, vinegar etc.....made us feel very welcome! Great responsiveness both from the owner and concierge in advance of and throughout our stay. With hot water and 5 people, have showers not baths and spread them out a bit! We would definitely come back again.
The appartment is situated so nicely, just in front of two skilifts. Restaurant, ski school and ski equipment rental all in the same building.
Our children (one skiing and one snowboarding) love it to be there.
Very nice warm welcome with some food package, also common requirements for cooking all readily available.
The apparment is very homey, okay some furniture (chairs and table) a little old and fragile. Matrasses old, and water heater requires managing your requirements.
We intend to come beck next wintersport vacation to this apartment again.
