Great apartment, very spacious and perfect for eating in if you want to. We were a party of four adults and five children and the apartment was perfect for us. Plenty of room and great living/kitchen/dining area. We ate in four times during our stay and it was very easy as Chris and Kay provide a great big dining table and 10 chairs, plenty of crockery etc.
The apartment is also located in a great spot for skiing. Thollon is a not too busy resort which is great for the beginner family. The apartment is located in the centre of the village and only a five minute walk to the ski lift. For those more advanced you can ski down to the apartment. We went in early February and had loads of snow.
Lovely restaurants in the village including Le Saint Nicolas and L'Outa. We also went to nearby Bernex for skiing (20mins drive) and ate at La Chevrette.
Would highly recomment this as a place to stay winter or summer.
