Great trip, great location & amazing experience
Excellent chalet, well located and perfectly furnished, ideal for a large group or family reunions on the mountain, all along the TMB!
Great location, very short drive to Prarion lifts and walkable to an area that allows to do ski in and out without having to park your car. A car is needed to get around Les Houches for restaurants and grocery shopping but everything is close by and within 10 minutes driving. Overall we had a fantastic time.
