Nous sommes très heureux que vous avez aimé votre séjour à Bourg et nous espérons vous accueillir de nouveau à un autre moment.
Glad you enjoyed Bourg and your stay. The apartment is 20m2 so agree not huge - but not as small as some others either!! We would love to provide a 2nd key but with the security system in our residence they simply do not allow more keys to be cut. Apologies as I should have suggested that you can always leave the key in the keysafe whenever one person goes out and then it's just a matter of using the code for whoever returns first to retrieve the key and get back in.
Hope we can welcome you back.
Both road cycling and VTT are fabulous around Bourg so glad to hear you had a great time and that the apartment lived up to expectations - we do try hard to keep everything in it as nice as possible! Hope to welcome you back another time.
Second visit to the apartment, great location for a little walk into town or to the funicular up to Arc 1600."
Glad to welcome you back for a second time and hope we can continue to do so for future visits!
I stayed here with my family and had an excellent time. From the moment of booking to getting in and staying and leaving, all went to plan. The apartment is very clean and tidy. I wholly recommend staying here to her the cost of your holiday down. Thanks to Julia for your hard work."
Great to hear you enjoyed yourself and the apartment worked out well. Thanks also to our lovely changeover people who do a fabulous job!! Hope to welcome you back another time.
A comfy apartment, conveniently located for the funicular and local amenities. The apartment was adequately equipped with a good supply of DVDs to watch."
Glad that found the apartment comfy and very convenient for both funicular and the town. We certainly try to anticipate all our guest needs, are constantly upgrading and respond very quickly to any requirements raised - as I am sure you are aware as we installed a new microwave just the following day after your report that the older one was malfunctioning! We hope to welcome you back again!
We had a great time staying in the apartment, it was our first time in Bourg. We got the train there and it couldn't have been easier. 10 minutes walk from the train station was the apartment and then a 5 minute walk everyday to the funicular to go up the mountain.
We would also recommend the Skicase lockers at the top of the funicular (opposite the Month Blanc lift under the apartments). It was very reasonable and enabled us to leave our ski boots, skis etc. in the lockers overnight on headed boot warmers and then our walking boots in there during the day. Saves carrying everything to and fro. Also leaves you free wander around Bourg when you get back down the mountain.
Bourg is great as it is much more reasonable, with a wide range of shops and restaurants.
The apartment itself is perfect for 2 people and has a comfy sofa bed in the lounge and even more comfortable bed.
Julia was really helpful and available at the end of the phone for any problems."
We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found it so convenient for the lifts. We really hope that we can welcome you back another time. As an alternative you can also leave boots, equipment and even luggage on the last day if you fancy a last ski before you leave Bourg and after leaving our apartment, at the ski shop at the bottom of the lift - Polaire Star - and we can get discount for guests. Hope to see you again! Julia
A compact but lovely aartment sutuated close to teh funicular and all the amenities of Bourg. Modern facilities and comfortable. An excellent value for money apartment."
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found it convenient for the funiculaire. We try hard to make it both good value for money whilst still providing everything our guests would hope to find - we keep adding in more facilities such as the new heated towel rail!
This is a lovely, well equipped, clean, comfortable apartment in a great location. Great communication with owners and everything was as described. The pool was a welcome bonus. We would have no hesitation in returning ourselves and hope to in the future. We would highly recommend to others. We used the apartment as our base for walking in the nearby resorts."
We are so pleased to hear that you had a great holiday in our apartment. We certainly try to make guests happy and never forget this is your precious holiday!
My stay in Bourg was excellent and I would highly recommend this accommodation to all. The apartment is very practical and well furnished (I mostly ate 'in'). It's also ideally located in regard to the shops.
Bourg it self is an incredible location. In the summer there are many activities to keep one busy and its a charming town to roam. I also believe its perfect in the winter (linked to Les Arcs...)"
We are so pleased you had a great time. We also believe Bourg is lovely in winter as well as summer - traditional town, loads of shops and cheaper restaurants than up in the resorts and only 7 minutes on the funicular to get up there! Glad you discovered the great surroundings us for summer as well and hope the cycling was fabulous!
For a couple or 3 of you this is a good base for the resorts all around the valley. We did Tignes, Les Arcs, La Plange and St Foy all within easy reach. Lovely and clean and tidy plenty of parking space and no noise. All the amenities on the doorstep."
Our family of four enjoyed one of the best holidays we have ever had this new year at '13 Les Glieres' in Bourg Saint Maurice. The apartment is in a great location, a short walk from the shops, restaurants & bars of the town and more importantly to us, the funicular railway.
We took the funicular train every morning to ski on the slopes of Arc 1950 and 2000, where our children who were on their first ski holiday, had lessons every day. The large number of runs at Arcs 1600, 1950 and 2000 meant that while they were having their lessons we were able to explore a large area of excellent skiing piste as well as the scenic bars and restaurants at the resorts.
We would love to return to this apartment and repeat our holiday."
Fantastic to hear you were able to enjoy a great weeks skiing and the apartment worked out well for the whole family. Hopefully the restaurants down in Bourg were also good and cheaper for a family than eating up in les Arcs themselves.
My wife and I spent a couple days here in Summer 2013. We wanted to be walking distance to the town centre, but not right in middle of town. This unit is about five minutes walk to the Funicular rail way (that provides access to mountain ski/walking/cycling areas) and a five to ten minute walk to the town centre and shops.
The unit is clean and well maintained, with the pool being comfortably warm (in mid-July). Being one level up from ground, the balcony is semi-private. We left belongings on it without worrying about theft.
This was my first visit to Bourg St. Maurice and it's a lovely town. Heaps of restaurants cafes and shops just a few minutes walk away. The mountain was great for summer hiking and/or mountain biking. Must come back in winter with my skis.
The manager/owner was quite easy to work with and the keys are conveniently located in a small safe just outside the door. This makes initial access very easy (compared to other places I've stayed)."
Glad you enjoyed your stay - our aim is to make all about your stay as easy as possible!
Next time I will take one day up the valley to ski in Italy."
