Peak Retreats Essentiels
Our aim is to offer the best possible range of upper 3 star and 4 star accommodation throughout our programme; however, there are some resorts that we really like and our clients love, but which don’t currently have any 4 star accommodation and are nonetheless an excellent choice, especially for the more budget conscious. Also, many of our clients tell us they usually try to fit in a second ski trip in the season, and that for this they often have a lower budget than for their main trip.
With these criteria in mind, we have made a selection of our value accommodations for your consideration if your budget is stretched.
Our Essentiels range of accommodation is materially quite different from those in our main portfolio, offering a basic standard of comfort and smaller living and sleeping space; they are less well appointed and more sparsely furnished than our normal grade apartments and have, for example, a minimal range of kitchen utensils and cooking facilities.
Guests are normally required to make their own beds; bed linen, towels and end-of-stay cleaning are generally not included, but sometimes available as a payable extra. TV hire, with a limited range of non-UK channels, may be payable locally. Wifi is generally not included or even available at all in the apartments, but there may be a basic signal in the reception area.
Staffing at reception is at limited times. Ski lockers are normally available, although without heated boot racks. Bread/pastries delivery and other services are not usually offered.
Leisure areas, when available, offer generally a quite basic range of facilities.
