The location is right next to the piste & there's a very good Italian restaurant next door.Mr P ( 11 Feb 17 )
The location of the apartments in relation to the slopes is great. Al dente in the apartment blocks had really good take away pizza and spoke excellent english.Dr S ( 11 Feb 17 )
The residence Les Flocons d'Argent is extremely well located for the pistes. There is also a navette in Aussois that allows people to travel around if they don't want to walk.Mrs B ( 26 Dec 16 )
We are on the way home from our holiday in Aussois, although we had limited snow we thoroughly enjoyed it. The location of our apartments couldn't have been better, they were of good standard and clean.Mrs L ( 26 Dec 15 )
Les Flocons d'Argent apartments are in the perfect location and have everything you need. However, there is no oven so we took our slow cooker with us which meant that we could come back after skiing to a mouth watering smell and dinner already cooked.Mrs Q ( 19 Dec 15 )
This was the first time skiing for my 10, 7 and 6 year old boys. They absolutely loved it and I was travelling alone as my husband had to work. Everything was very close and easy to access. Ski school and private lessons were great. Boys were skiing red runs by the end of the week. The whole week was so well organised by Peak Retreats...I couldn't fault them at all. With the Aussois accommodation we stayed in the only think I would say is if it looks like you're not going to have great weather, pack enough gear for the kids as drying facilities are limited. But it wasn't a big drama just a matter of changing over items on the heated towel rails. Fantastic trip we will go again!!! many thanksMrs L ( 28 Mar 15 )
We were very impressed by how helpful and friendly everybody was from the staff at Les Flocons d'Argent, La maison d'Aussois, ESF, ski hire shop to everybody in all the shops, bars and restaurants.Mrs F ( 28 Mar 15 )
Access to the nursery slopes was to the rear of our accommodation which was so convenient.Mrs L ( 14 Feb 15 )
Take advantage of the spit roast chicken for sale from the supermarket under Les Flocons - yummy.Mrs G ( 27 Dec 14 )
Apartments were great for the size of the party and easy enough to cater for the family.Mr H ( 05 Apr 14 )
Les Flocons d Argent apartments close to the ski school, with ski access through the patio doors, is an excellent bonus for those with small children. This made our group holiday so much more convenient, having requested that 5 families are sitauted close to one another.Mr W ( 15 Feb 14 )
Flocons D'Argent accommodation was amazingly convenient for the slopes, ski school, pool. Great for families with younger kids.Mrs L ( 06 Apr 13 )
With a good swimming pool for afternoon entertainment and a perfectly adequate apartment it meant we could have a skiing holiday for 5. Our boys are hooked now and we have found a way, certainly whilst they are learning, to make this an affordable family holiday. Peak Retreats are providing a fantastic service here and we are very glad we found them.Mr P ( 06 Apr 13 )
It only has a small microwave and hobs so if you bring your own pre-prepared food make sure it will be suitable for that set up ie a large lasagne in a big dish will not fit!Mrs L ( 23 Mar 13 )
This resort is very much for families if you are looking for somewhere to go out to a different restaurant each night then this is not for you. The restaurant at Flocon D'argent does excellent takeaway.Mr C ( 16 Feb 13 )
Pool is good but get there early or gets very busy. Internet ok but not very fast. TV only French channels so worth stocking up on DVDs etc. Not as much English spoken as expected.Mrs Q ( 16 Feb 13 )
The restaurant at Flocon D'argent does excellent take-aways.Mrs C ( 16 Feb 13 )
Perfect for families with young children. A lovely resort with friendly restaurants and very family orientated.Mrs J ( 31 Mar 12 )
The swimming pool at Flocons D'Argent was an excellent family activity after a day of skiing. If like us you arrive on Saturday and the time is taking up sorting out accommodation etc but not to get shopping, the large supermarket in Modane is excellent and much cheaper than the resort and is less than 10 mins drive down the mountain. But beware it is closed on Sunday afternoon!Mrs P ( 10 Mar 12 )
We chose Peak Retreats because I searched on Google for Les Flocon's d'Argent. The accommodation's location was fantastic.Mr M ( 11 Feb 12 )
Our first holiday skiing with our children (ages 6 and 8) and we had a fantastic time. The resport was perfect for children and the accomodation perfectly sited so we could ski back to the door and it took 2 minutes to get to the ski school meeting place in the morning. Ski school was well organised and effective and even in half term week lift queues were minimal. I think we will back next year as the location/resort was so good for families with beginner children.Mr H ( 11 Feb 12 )
