Ferienhaus Arc en ciel ★★★★
Schweiz, Wallis, Nendaz
Well what to say? start with the positives, the chalet was good, roomy modern and suited our group quite well, although we had a single adult with us and the single bed was a bit small, not wide enough.
The views were stunning since you are high up the side of the valley, but that brought it's own problems; access! Having read the info we thought that snow chains would be sufficient to get there, i think we may have been lucky with the conditions and eventually we did get to the chalet having wrecked one set of chains and having to buy another. Not much fun after an overnight drive from England. It also meant we were a bit fearful of moving the car again until the end of the week. This in turn meant that anything we bought we had to lug up a fearsomely steep hill!! all i can say is thank goodness there were ski lockers at Gaby's Sports opposite the main lift. I think four wheel drive is essential!
There is an inference that the chalet may be ski in/out, not too sure about this either, we did look for away onto the piste but after twenty minutes of wandering through two foot of snow we decided it probably wasn't worth it.
Only other issue was hot water or lack of it. the water only heats up overnight so if you or some of you shower in the morning there certainly isn't enough for showers when you come off the slopes which leads to a bit of a smelly experience.
Otherwise the chalet was good, add ons were a bit pricey but these were explained beforehand so can't really complain.
We did have an issue with a leaky sink but this was fixed by the end of the day so that was good!
