Excellent Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 6 we went to Valberg over the 2013 Christmas period. The Holiday Chalet was superb with all amenities that one would require. Access to the Ski lifts was spot on as they are just across the street from apartment. Even with 6 of us staying there we had plenty of space for us all. It was also very clean and tidy. We had to call upon our Contact person (Madame Nell) a couple of times who was extremley prompt and very helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Unfortunatley not all the Lifts were open during our stay (not sure if this was because of the snow conditions or the time of the season). We really enjoyed Christmas at the apartment, the skiing was Ok and Valberg is a nice resort. Only one down thing (from my Childrens perspecive) was lack of WiFi in the apartment and also in the resort. We wouldn't hesitate in going back to the resort and apartment. - Thanks

This is a fabulous house. very close to the ski lifts and just a few minutes walk to the beautiful town of Valberg. We spent our Christmas here with our 2 boys, everything was perfect. We will certainly return.

Our best ski holiday ever.

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 4 we went on family skiing holiday and decided to stay in Valberg because it was very accessible from Nice and the resort had great ski reviews. We decided to stay in this fabulous apartment and as a family enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house is fully fitted with all modern devices but still retains it's traditional feel which we loved. With regards to ski access a ski lift is located just across the street from apartment next to the public swimming pool. As a family of four we found the apartment to be very spacious, clean and very well maintained. We were also very please to find UK television, which kept the soap opera fans happy in the evenings in front of roaring open fire. We found the owners to be very helpful and informative. We enjoyed the apartment, the skiing and the resort that much we are going back this Easter to get away for a week.
