Convenience is the key to this great family Chalet Hotel, the location is so central that it's within easy reach of just about everythng you could wish for. The social areas are pleasantly decorated with a homely feel and the facilities for the youngsters are well considered.
The Mariandre is a perfect choice for skiers who hate to walk far, being only 50m from the nearest lift and piste. The Telecentre lift, known locally as the 'Yoghurt Pots', links the centre of the resort up to the Rond Point des Pistes, from where the whole area opens up, with a choice of five different lifts to whisk you on up the mountain.
Alternatively, you can start your day on the piste just 50m from home, and ski down from there to the Eclose lift to take you up into the main heart of the area. At the end of the day, you can ski back on piste to the same point, and if conditions permit, just carry on the last 50m across the Tourist Board's terrace to the Mariandre.
The spacious lounge/bar area, with its big picture windows, comfy sofas, flatscreen TV (some English channels) and reception desk, form the focal point of the Mariandre. Downstairs, the dining-room is in two parts, and is furnished in simple French bistro-style. A touch on the snug side if everyone arrives at once for breakfast, it is more than comfortable for adult dinners.
The bedrooms and family suites provide a choice of accommodation styles for different family sizes, and all benefit from en suite facilities, flatscreen TV and DVD, with many having a balcony too.
The Nursery and separate sleep-room are off the main lounge, whilst the spacious and attractive Snow Club room, where our Cocoa Club is also held, is conveniently situated within the hotel Typical bedroom style - almost all are large enough to take a cot building.
