This is a nice little ex-railway cottage that does the basics well. It's compact but functional.

I've just installed a gas hot water system which heats water as you use it, so it can never run out. No waiting for the water to heat up again to have your showers!

The wood burner in the lounge will provide all the heat you need.

The kitchen is simple but has everything you need to cook a meal, though if you're just in town for a few days skiiing, I'd highly recommend saving time and going to one of the many local pubs or cafes to eat.

No TV reception, but there's a TV and VCR, as well as about 100 classic and not-so-classic movies on tape.

And there's a view of the mountain from most rooms in the house, so you can check the weather forecast just by looking out the window.

Special conditions: No smoking please! Bring your own sheets, towels and tea-towels.

  • Nice basic house

    Nice basic house. Warm and good value for money enjoyed our stay here. Could probably do with a bit of TLC but definitely worth the price charged. Will go back
