I wasn’t sure about the apartment after reading the reviews but due to limited options, we booked this apartment.
We travelled with two young kids. The apartment was spacious. It has a nice sitting area, one bedroom, three “hidden” beds that could be opened to accommodate 5 in total, a kitchen and a toilet. It also has a parking but you must get the key from the housekeeper to get there. It is not that close to the apartment. The water pressure from the showerhead was poor and it was a bit disappointing.
The location of the apartment is near the cervinia ski lift. It is not close to the town center nor the children’s learning area, the magic carpet. But if you ski, you could start skiing right out of the apartment.
The owner was very responsive, however and so did the housekeeper.
Here is some contribution to the community:
The address of the apartment is Strada Giomein 110 21 Valtournenche, after the bridge.
There was toilet papers.
Sheets and towels are available @15 euro per person (paid in cash). We requested in advance so no problem at all.
Overall, it was functional and fairly comfortable.
First of all, the location reflected here on the map and the address provided by the owner before arrival was not correct, not even the street name! As a consequence, we spent more than 1 hour looking for the place, a lot of which was spent on the phone with the concierge.
The address provided by the owner was Strada Funivie 24, which is indeed next to the ski lifts. The actual apartment is quite a walk away from the lifts (around 500 meters uphill - definitely no at ski in - ski out).
The apartment itself is not well looked after and not clean - there was dust, hair and spider webs in lots of places.
We brought our own towels and linen as the owner notified us that these essentials will not be provided, however, bear in mind that was not even toilet paper or soap! We asked the concierge to provide some toilet paper since we arrived in the evening, we were lucky to get one roll.
There were no instructions given upon arrival, nor advise. As considerate guests, we tidied up the apartment before leaving, only leaving the garbage bags in kitchen (since no directions were given about where to dispose the garbage). Upon collecting the keys, the concierge inspected the apartment, complained about the garbage bags and told us to drive to the garbage containers. We did not have time for that anymore and it resulted in a very unpleasant end to our stay.
Extremely unwelcoming place.
Great apartment , easily slept five full grown men. Not quite ski out and in, but not to far to walk to do both.

The accommodation was very good convenient garage and ski locker. The concierge was truly excellent explained everything and was very knowledgeable about the area. We only walked a short distance and could ski down to the lift system, and could ski back almost to the door.
