Good Points
Nice chalet hosts but they are only temporary, lovely village.

Bad Points
Bad management who refuse to help after they take your money.

General Comments
Les Allures is a lovely little village, but 2 gondola rides from Meribel village, so it does take about 20 mins to get up and down each day. There isn't much happening in town.

We had lovely hosts who cooked good solid meals (nothing gourment) and were very friendly.

However, the Skiblanc staff from the office were a nightmare. Plastered with a fake smile - they came and visited a couple of times asking whether we needed assistance. But when we actually needed help, they were clueness and downright rude at some points. Booked to drop us off at the wrong location (about 30 mins drive away) and then refused to pick up their phone when we tried to call them to try and resolve the problem.

There are too many chalets out there to have to deal with rubbish management like this.

They also have a policy which means that their host must recommend that we go to a ski shop which has very limited gear. They also recommended that go La Tsaretta on the hosts night off, which turned out to be overpriced food from a mish mash of cusines - the mussels we had there tasted a little off.

The only redeeming factor was that snow was excellent when we were there!
