House rules:

Pack loads of humor and have fun during your stay!

The building rules forbid the wearing of ski boots in the building and storage of skis in any of the apartments. Guests are therefore asked to leave skis and snowboards etc in the ski locker or garage and not to wear skis or walking boots in the building or apartment.

Please note: Les Iris is a Smoking Free Zone.
