Apartment 15 La Traverse
About the home
Charming bijou apartment sleeps six, but you do need to be good friends, on the ground floor with direct access to the slopes. Within 50m there are Evolution and ESF Ski schools and meeting points for lessons, crèche and childcare, the six man fast lift out of the village and the beginners bubble to the beginners area.
There also is a children's safe toboggan area and separate snow play area and play area, shops, restaurants, bars, take away with delivery service, tourist information office, emergency doctor, animation area, laundry, hairdressers and cinema. This whole area to the front of the apartment and to the shops is pedestrians only.
The apartment is cleverly designed to create three separate sleeping areas. Double bedroom, twin beds in the lounge area and a further double bed adapted from the dining table and bench chairs. All rooms have storage for personal items and there are drawers shelves baskets and baggage stows throughout the apartment.
During the day the wooden sliding doors between the lounge and the dining area can be opened up to create one larger living area with comfortable seating and TV DVD player, CD player, games, toys,books and cards. The lounge leads to the south facing terrace which is equipped with out door furniture for al fresco dining. The terrace leads to the shared garden with direct access to the ski area (snow permitting you can ski down to the terrace) the terrace is a great space to leave skis when returning to the apartment with children. In the summer the terrace leads directly onto the shared garden area a great area for sunbathing or for children to play.
The kitchen although tiny is very well equipped including a full size dishwasher. The bathroom has a bath with shower over, a large basin, plenty of storage and drying space and even an Iron and ironing board. There is a separate WC.
We have a lockable ski store within a heated and locked ski room. There is free parking directly outside the apartment building.

Have stayed at 15 la traverse on many occasions with many differing party sizes and it always delivers.it is an easy drive from the airport with really good directions and lots of information to make your holiday enjoyable. The apartment Is always immaculate and extremely well equipped with lots of little touches that make yur stay comfortable. It is in a perfect location...being literally metres from the lift, ski hire shops,lift pass office, bread shop and restaurants. Good secure storage for equipment in the building and direct access to the slopes from the apartment.
We stayed last year with 3 teenagers..usually a recipe for disaster in the most spacious accommodation and we had a ball. It was a real treat to cosy up and watch a DVD together something we don't get to do very often..if ever!!
Looking forward to visiting later this year...I know I won't be disappointed and will be able to enjoy the fantastic skiing available with just the occasional vin chaud and hot chocolate !!!
