This was our first family skiing holiday & we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The apartment is very well equipped & in a great location. It was fantastic being able to walk a few hundred metres to the bottom of the chair lift. The views from the apartment are fabulous & made it even more special. Can’t wait to visit again!
Lovely chalet in a great location
Chalet is a great size, well equipped and the sun terrace is excellent. The chalet is also in the main block with the pool which is very handy. Highly recommend.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and enjoyed the pool and terrace. We look forward to welcoming you back to Chalets des Oursons in the future.
We really recommend this apartment!
We stayed for 9 days. We were 6 people. The apartment was clean, tidy and very spacious. Pierre met us at our arrival and explained everything. He also helped us during our stay. He is very nice and helpful.
We had a few sunny days and fun on the terrace. We ate there and played table tennis. The kids loved it. The beds are comfortable and the apartment has everything!! Just like a real home. The place is very quiet. The village is tiny and you must have a car for good access. It's about an hour drive from Chamonix and from Annecy but we took that in mind before we reserved. Although you must know that the way to the village has many curves... There are also plenty of things to do and see nearby too. During the rainy days we went swimming in the swimming pool and it was great. The whole building is well kept and clean.
Thank you Gillian for having us there!!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and appreciated all that the apartment and the area have to offer. It is great that you valued Pierre as our excellent local representative - he works so hard to take care of our property and our guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
A real home-from-home apartment in a wonderful location
We stayed at Gillian's apartment in July 2016 and found the apartment to be spacious, high quality and well equiped. The apartment had all we needed, is very accurately described on the website and was clean and tidy for our arrival. It proved a great base for outdoor activities and sight-seeing but also has plenty of internal and external space for those stay-at-home days, and the swimming pool was the icing on the cake for an end of a hot day dip. Gillian was most responsive to queries we had and we intend to return :-)
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment comfortable and well equipped. We are always delighted to receive such positive feedback because it helps us know that we are making holidays special. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Great apartment, great location.
This is a great apt and comfortably sleeps 8. Very clean and homely. It is situated minutes from the ski lifts, just a short walk in the morning and can ski back virtually to back door in the afternoons. In the evening there are a few bars/restaurant which are all friendly and food great. Ski hire shop again on the doorstep. A great find for us .
We are delighted that you enjoyed staying in our apartment so much that you returned and are now going to be a neighbour - the best testimony possible!
Brilliant skiing, apartment is excellent.
This is a fantastic apartment, a great find. I went with a small group of friends and certainly hope to do so again in the future. Booking was simple enough and any questions I had were answered promptly, often with a choice of solutions if applicable. Key collection was simple and the apartment was clean and tidy when we arrived. The apartment itself is well thought out with enough room so that 8 people can comfortable stay, the terrace is also an added bonus ( looked brilliant for the summer months). We had everything we needed including reliable WIFI and Uk TV. I have traditionally skied in areas such as the three valleys and later on in the season, glacier based resorts. The Espace Diament ski range was a welcome change, there is a solid variety of piste with varying style and difficulty. Most of all shorter queues !!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in or apartment and appreciated the efforts that we have made to ensure that it is comfortable and well equipped. We agree that the Espace Diament offers excellent skiing and is worth exploring if you prefer shorter queues and good value!
