A comfortable chalet, with an unusually spacious lounge/dining area on the top floor. (Although we didn't have children with us, it would be well suited to a family holiday.) James and Whitney looked after us very well, in particular, being prepared to go out of their way to help us out. (One of our group struggled to walk in ski boots.) The well planned village escalators meant it was easy to get to & from the ski lift, which provides excellent access into the Alpe d'Huez ski area. I would happily return to this chalet.

Deborah described her holiday:
'The location is really lovely and we were cosy and warm. The kitchen was well equipped and the double fridge is a bonus with children. The furniture is beautiful and the place feels so relaxed. The lovely little touches you left for us and the children were also appreciated. The key free system for the chalet was very convenient, especially with all of us coming and going at different times.'
Krystyna summed up her stay:
'Thank you for all your helpful advice and assistance with making our week in your idyllic chalet in vaujany such a success. We have had a superb week's skiing in a most delightful place - absolutely perfect!'
