“Amazing location,stunning views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2007

We booked this accommodation through Crystal Ski and I have to say we were nicely surprised. The apartments are in the Quartier des Bergers which is about a 15 minute walk to the main town of ALpe D'Huex but it is right beside the slopes, the hire shops and the ski school. Location wise it is absolutely first class! And you can virtually ski back to your door. We really couldnt complain about the location.

We were in a type D apartment. It was meant to be for 2-5 people but it was smaller than we expected. We couldnt see how you would fit a 5th person. We asked our rep and he even said that it was smaller than usual. But it didnt bother us so we didnt pursue it. We had a double bedroom, and then a sofa and pull out bed in the living room. Absolutely no complaints on the cleanliness though you do need to bring your own cleaning stuff for before you leave. Apartment had all you needed - dishwasher, cutlery, electric hob, microwave and you could rent a tv from reception I think. The view from our balcony was stunning and different every morning with the light. We were looking out onto the snow capped mountains and not the resort.

On the ground floor there are lockers, operated by your door key, where you can leave your ski gear. We were able to fit 3 sets of skis and boots in no problem.

Our major issue was with the reception. It is not open all day. Far from it. It is open for a number of hours each day and even then there were hardly ever there. Thankfully we never had any problems but if you did then it might be difficult to get in contact with them.

I would have no problem staying here again if I was going to Alpe D'Huex which I would do. The skiing is brilliant for people of all levels. We were a mixed group of abilities and we all loved it.

The only reason I wouldnt give the place 5 stars was because it was a little small and lack of attendance at reception.

The ski school meeting place is about a 5 minute walk from the door -you cant get any better! The ski hire shop we used (Henri Sport) was almost on the slopes!!!

There is also a supermarket 3mins walk from the apartments.

Eating wise - there is a great place for lunch called Chez Luigis just off the slopes with excellent food at great prices just at the entrance to the shopping centre/shops.

Apologies for the long review but I felt it was helpful to put in all this information!
