We stayed here for 14 days in January 2013. We had 4 adults and 1 teenager and the space was just perfect for us. The location is great as you're a short walk to the Happo One ski lifts and you can ski home. The staff were great and picked us up/dropped us off at the bus station and at... More

We booked 2 villas at the beginning of Feb for 6 nights. The villas were new, clean and warm. The main drawback was the lack of side rails on the stairs and upstairs landing area which made it unsafe for young children. Our group had 4 young children under 2 years old and we had to constantly keep an eye... More

The villas themselves were very modern and spacious, even by western standards. We were in a group of 6 and had a trundle bed added to accommodate us all and I never felt that we were short on space. The kitchen included microwave, stove-top, sink, fridge and small pantry, but we found ourselves eating out most nights, so really only... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Villas. Rooms were spacious, warm and clean and in a good location. There was approx an 8 minute walk up to the closest lift but you could ski virtually all the way home. The shuttle bus stop was just outside if you could be organised enough to be there on time!

“We had Villa02, which received a bit of noise on the Saturday night with revelling skiiers heading home - perhaps the higher numbers, off the street, would not suffer this. But I only mention it for people who would prefer absolute quiet - we loved being so close to the bus stop!”
