We had a FANTASTIC time staying here. The rooms were perfect - great size, great storage space and bedding. We loved the en-suite in each room (two rooms share one bathroom) and all bathrooms were amazing. We particularly enjoyed the under floor heating! Living space is large and we made use of the wood burner! The hot tub is honestly the selling piece of the apartment, we enjoyed it every day after skiing and it sorted out all of our aches and pains. The location truly is a 5 minute walk to the Grand Montets slopes so if you want quick access, the apartment is perfect. The bakery underneath is also amazing so I definitely recommend trying it out!
This could be the perfect apartment in Argentiere for a group of friends or larger family. The location is great, with a bakery underneath and easy to access all the key parts of Argentiere, and only 5 mins walk to the main lift area. Also the layout for a group like ours was great with plenty of rooms and bathrooms and large enough communal dining area.
