Steve Powys from United Kingdom writes:

Pretty village with good amenities, but not too noisy at night. Pistes very well cared for when weather permits. Quiet with no queues on weekdays in school holidays. Campsite close to centre, friendly, clean, full heated facilities including pool and apartments. Good bakery!
Ideal for young families and retired folk.
