There are five reasons for booking this chalet.
First, its position. It is on the edge of the old village, a short walk from the church, 50m from the nursery slopes. You can almost ski to the door.
Secondly, the interior: like Jonahs whale, it is a great deal roomier and more comfortable than one would imagine from the exterior. It has a very pleasant sitting-dining room with a high ceiling, open-plan kitchen, a balcony with a good view up Bellevarde, and a big, solid fireplace built of stones collected by the owner for the matching colours of their lichen.
On the same floor as the living room are two twin bedrooms. Room 1 has a high ceiling and a french window to a wide sunny terrace. There is a bathroom with both a bath and a shower very convenient for people inured to seeing each other starkers and a separate wc.
Upstairs, via a staircase too steep for anyones Granny or toddler (its third USP), are a comfy twin bedroom and a very cosy double. They share a shower-room with wc. These two rooms are tucked under the eaves, and their windows are a stroke of genius: not just the normal skylights, which dont do a lot under ten feet of snow, but also proper windows opening onto the living room below. These give all the fresh air you want, yet you go to sleep to the scent of the log fire and wake up to the smell of fresh coffee.
The fourth reason is what the chalet does not have: en-suite bathrooms, because as a result it also doesnt attract the sort of guest who spends his holiday worrying that someone else might have borrowed his toothpaste.
The fifth and perhaps the greatest reason for staying in this chalet is that it offers ruinously good value ruinous to us, not you and in these days when the pound in your pocket just slipped through a hole in the lining, eating YSE food 50m from the slopes without having to remortgage the castle sounds like a good investment!
