Have been visiting this village for last twelve years. Summer walking truly inspiring. Winter skiing in village itself has short but well cared for slopes but access to whole Ski Amade area affords all the challenge needed. Ski schools are second to none. Great place for families. Alms and restaurants friendly and great food. Apres Ski could be seen as a bit tame for some but ideal for families and those who need a hot wine or hot chocolate, cake and friendly places to meet up. Wide range of accommodation choices for all budgets. The many village festivals throughout the year are great fun and sense of community is clearly important to these folk. Love this village, the perfect holiday spot.
