Vivian's apartment is delightful.
There is an authentic mountain ambiance, with timber beams and furniture, a fireplace and traditional decorations. Viviane provides ample towels, tea towels, linen etc. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the verandah is in full sunshine all day. The view of the ski slopes and down the valley toward Briancon is spectacular. Even though the apartment is in close proximity to other places of residence, it is extremely quiet and private.
All this makes for a wonderful stay, however, it is Vivian's warmth and friendliness that tops it off. She is there to answer any queries but does not impose on one's holiday.
I would not advise bringing small children to the apartment as there is a very steep staircase that may be unsafe. My husband and I are in our early 60's as were our friends and we had no problem at all with the stairs.
I would have no reservation in recommending this apartment. We enjoyed a wonderful two week in Vivian's apartment and will definitely return.
