Wir waren während den Faschingsferien 2014 für eine Woche in diesem Appartment und waren mit unserer Wahl überaus zufrieden. Das Appartment entspricht der Beschreibung und unsere Erwartungen daran wurden voll erfüllt. Es ist liebevoll und sehr umfangreich ausgestattet, so dass wir nichts vermisst haben. Die Informationen der Vermieter waren umfangreich und sehr hilfreich. Der Einstieg in das Ski Gebiet Les 3 Vallées ist problemlos. Wer möchte, kann auf die Nutzung eines eigenen Autos verzichten und sich entweder zu Fuß oder per Gratisbus zur Gondelstation im Ort begeben. Wir haben die Fahrt per Auto nach Méribel gewählt, wofür ca. 15 - 20 min einzuplanen sind. Für Skifahren in Les 3 Vallées würden wir uns sofort wieder für dieses Appartment entscheiden.

We had a very pleasant stay in the apartment : good size, comfortable... We've known Brides since a long time; it was our first stay in the residence la Cybele. We enjoy it, it was quiet and restful. Un petit mot pour les francophones qui ne parlent pas anglais, le fait que les propriètaires soient anglais n'est pas un obstacle : Sally se débrouille très bien en français; tout se fait par email. Le service est excellent : des premiers échanges, jusqu'au remboursement de la caution, en passant par les petits détails dans l'appartement ainsi que la personne sur place... de nombreux propriètaires devraient en prendre de la graine !!

We had a great week skiing with our 2 little girls (4&6) and Brides les Bains was the perfect place to bring them. Having stayed up in Courchevel in our pre-children days we were delighted to find a more affordable option to explore the 3 Valleys! The apartment is so well located just a 10 minute walk, even for our 4 year old, from the Gondola and just a short stroll from lots of lovely restaurants. We rented ski lockers at the Gondola which I'd definitely recommend to save lugging skis around for the week and had no problems getting up to Meribel for ski school at 9.15. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and really well equipped. We will be back next year!! - Bowen Family, Ireland, February 2014


The apartment was a lot more spacious than the pictures show. When we arrived the place was immaculate and the baby cot had already been assembled for our little one. My discounted ski pass was waiting on the table (extreme ski) and there was a good stock of basics (food) passed on by previous occupants. Having stayed previously in tiny chalets for similar money with limited cooking facilities, it was great to have the hob, oven, microwave and all the pots pans etc we could possibly need. From the moment I got in touch with owners the whole process was really easy and they provided we all the information I needed and much more besides. The free bus took only two minutes to get to the gondola and it was easily walked in 5 minutes even in ski boots. The chap in the intersport ski hire place (in the building) was really helpful and checked my board over for free. A local baker is in reception every morning and there is nothing like fresh bread and pastries to start the day in the right way. The hotel at the bottom of the gondola is a great place for a crepe and hot chocolate après ski. I would definitely recommend this apartment to others for excellent value for money and easy access to the 3 valleys. -Tom. C, UK, February 2014


Great apartment, excellently kitted out and very welcoming, we were delighted from start of the booking right through to end of our stay! The apartment was clean, excellently equipped (Wifi, satellite tv, washing machine, dishwasher, all kitchen needs and extras), it felt like a home away from home. All correspondence, directions and tips provided by the owners were excellent, making the whole experience as easy as possible! Couldn't recommend it more & will definitely be returning!  Baker Family, UK, February 2014



Great apartment with everything you need for a self-catering stay (free Wi Fi & UK TV great extras). Small swimming pool and jacuzzi in complex nice touch (great for kids after day skiing). Very clean, well kept and tidy. Very helpful UK owner with nothing too much trouble. Easy walk to gondola, small supermarket and restaurants. Overall an ideal place for a family ski holiday wanting a mixture of SC and eating out (cheaper than Meribel for restaurants). Can't ski in ski out but trip in gondola nice rest at end of day. You can always drive up/down to Meribel if you want. Have stayed in BLB for last 10 years running and this has been the best to date. Would book again without hesitation.

Spent a fantastic week at this apartment in Brides and enjoyed some wonderful ski conditions in the 3 Valleys. We travelled by train from St Pancras to Moutiers and caught a cab (E30)from Moutiers to the apartment. The journey was very easy and a lot less hassle than flying. I would recommend the ski train and if you travel overnight both ways not only is it cheaper but you get 2 extra days skiing. The apartment was excellent with everything you needed. We were 4 adults and there was plenty of room. The apartment has a wonderful view up the valley from the balcony. The cooking facilities were easliy sufficient to cope if you wanted to save money by not eating out. There were however enough choice of local restaurants to tempt us out each night. A bonus was the baker who turned up in reception each morning with fresh bread and croissants. Access to the skiing is probably easiest with a car but without it is still straightforward. There is a free shuttle bus to and from the apartment to the gondola. the gondola takes about 25 mins to get to Meribel. We had a great holiday and I hope to return next season. - Duncan F, UK , January 2014


I've been going to Alpine apartments for 25 years and this is amongst the most comfortable. You can sometimes end up with a shoe box in France, but this really would sleep 8 and accommodate them all at the Dining Table. We were a party of 3 and it was extremely spacious. The only improvement would have been a teapot (which I believe the owner is going to get)! Will definitely think about going again next year. We also went over to the "4th valley" this time - Orelles. Very tricky black down from the cable car out of Val Thorens but well worth the effort. - Jonathan L., UK, January 2014


We stayed in this flat for a week at the beginning of January and loved it! The flat itself is warm and cosy and really feels like a 'home away from home'! Plus the complex has a heated pool and jacuzzi, which we enjoyed everyday, and a really nice bar and restaurant! The best thing though was the fact that it is so accessible to Meribel and the three valleys (just a 5 min walk then 20 min gondola ride away) yet so much cheaper than staying in meribel!! I would definitely recommend this flat to anyone and we will certainly be returning! - Felicity B., UK, January 2014



2013


Having skied the "trois vallees" a few times we know just how fantastic this ski area is. Unfortunately it is becoming increasingly expensive and out of reach for many. That's why we looked at Bride and were delighted to find accommodation for our family of 4 at affordable rates. We were even more surprised when we arrived and found the apartment to be really spacious and well set up. It was ideal for us with 2 good size rooms. I was pleased not to get any bruises from the normal squeeze around the bed in tiny ski chalets! The lounge / dining area is equally spacious and comfortable. And not to forget the kitchen which even comes with a conventional oven - which allowed us to cook a proper Christmas lunch for 9! We also really liked the reserved underground parking space 'and the boulangerie chap who sold his delicious bread & croissants in reception every morning, including Christmas Day! Don't worry about getting to the slopes. There are a few options including driving right up to the slopes or the lovely relaxing cable car. We'll be back! Dixon Family, UK , December 2013


First family holiday away at Christmas. Attention to detail, cleanliness and extra touches really made our stay at Brides les Bains special. The accommodation was spacious, allowing our family of 5 plenty of room. Everything we needed was available. Information and communication prior to visit was very helpful. Horning Family, UK, December 2013


Much enjoyed late summer week in this delightful spa town and winter sports resort. This apartment in Brides Les Bains is convenient, well maintained, clean and well equipped, with superb views over the valley and mountains from the large balcony (Al fresco eating!). The apartment's own WiFi facility and secure, covered parking, was most welcome. - Barry & Lauma, UK, September 2013


Having just returned from a very enjoyable week's holiday in Bride les Bains I would like to thank you so much for making it so good.
The apartment is lovely, spacious and clean with lots of little unexpected touches that just added to the pleasure of being there. Everything that we needed was available, and we enjoyed playing some of the games in the evening.
We very much appreciated the excellent television with all the English channels you could wish for. There are equally good French channels as well. The free Wi Fi was really useful and worked very well. It was wonderful to be able to keep up to date with E-mails.
We much enjoyed sitting on the balcony for our meals when it was warm enough, taking in the beautiful views of the snow-covered mountains, which were always changing. It would appear to be the best view in the apartment block.
Bride Les Bains is a very pretty little town,with lots going on and a real French atmosphere. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the town itself is interesting. We visited in the "in between" season when all the ski resorts are completely deserted but Bride les Bains was alive and bustling with people. There are lots of interesting places that we visited all within easy reach.

All in all we had a really good time and were so grateful for all your care and help. The directions were very clear and your welcome pack was comprehensive.
Thank you for all the little thoughtful touches that contributed to making our holiday so enjoyable -
James and Jean, UK, May 2013



Logement spacieux et confortable, bien équipé Le plus : la WIFI " - M. Vincent, France, April 2013



I have had the pleasure of staying in an apartment in Les Cybele for about ten weeks over the past five years and have only positive comments to make about everything. The apartment, the residence and the town are all perfect in providing a holiday in the Three Valleys region at an affordable price. Having visited Brides Les Bains every year in the past decade I realise it has become increasingly popular with many skiers during that time, so it isn’t just me that loves it! - Mr R Prince, UK, March 2013


Cet appartement est parfaitement entretenu, très bien agencé, parfaitement calme et bien équipé. On peut y vivre à 4 très confortablement. L'accès aux télécabines est très bien organisé. Une excellente adresse !!! - Mr. C. Rolin, France, February 2013



2012


The apartment is a good size with a large lounge/dining/cooking area, double bedroom with en suite shower (no WC), separate bedroom with two bunk beds, two bunk beds in the entrance hallway (that can be sectioned off at night with a curtain and was private enough for me), a bathroom and separate WC. On the top floor, the apartment is quiet and access via the lift from the garage is good. Finding the apartment complex is easy. Sally recommended driving to Meribel Village (free parking right next to the Golf lift) rather than using the Olympic lift and this was definitely a good move. This was our first time in the 3-Valleys and it's huge, with a good variety of runs and, if conditions are good, a fantastic amount - Mr Rob H, UK, April 2012




The apartment was great! The arrival was easy and as the owner explained. We didn't have any bad surprises. The flat is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. The owner thought about every detail which made us feel as if we were in a friend's house. The heating system works perfectly as well as the hot water, something very important when you are coming back from skiing.The bathroom and the kitchen were spotless and the apartment in itself has plenty of room to put away your stuff.You can tell that the owners prepared the apartment with love and really thinking in the guests needs. Apart from the apartment we received information about the ski resort and as many details as you can imagine, we found this very useful.We went with a car and it was a pleasure to leave it in an indoor parking as it was snowing really hard. Great location to visit with car Courchevel, Val Thorens and Meribel. If I have the opportunity I will rent it again. - Mrs Micaela T, UK, February 2012
