Stayed at Ashley's place for a week. In January 2018. Apartment was perfect for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and of very high standard with a practical layout. Brides is quiet so the main street location was not an issue for us. We had a car which gave us easy access to ski areas (can also walk to Meribel gondola), grocery shopping, etc. Easy parking nearby. The local supermarket and boulangerie provided the basics. Ski rental across the road was very convenient (ask for discount at Skiloc - good gear and friendly service). Ashley is the perfect host (not to mention a superior skier!). Assisted with everything we needed and beyond. Always available and willing to help. Also recommend his First Tracks ski school. Very keen to relive our experience at this apartment.
Le 1818 is a spacious standalone apartmemt, entered through the back of the main street of the cute village Brides les Bains. It's centrally located in the middle of town, walking distance to everything the town has to offer (cute traditional french town, albeit small) including the gondola. The house is beautifully appointed, clean, somehow seemed larger than the pictures. The place has three bedrooms, with large bed in each of the rooms, so it can comfortably sleep 6 (prob more). The large living/dining area is perfect for hosting for large gatherings.
Ashley the host was very easy to communicate with and answered every little question we had with great detail and promptness. The keys were coordinated by a local agent who was also very easy to get in touch with as her office is just down the street from the apartmemt.
In terms of connecticity to three valleys, the gondola ride is ~25 mins to Meribel, but doesn't feel so long as the scenery is absolutely gorgeous. The mountain itself is one of the largest in the world and a week's time was not enough to see all of it.
All in all the place is great and we had a fabulous stay -- and would go back.
Appartement in center of brides near the " cure". They are 3 bedrooms with Nice décoration. A Terrace with beatiful view for lunch or dinner and the top in center of the city : a little garden.
Thank to Ashley for the recommandation of visit in the country.
We loved the appartment of Ashley and Cathy. Very design and confortable, we spent a wonderful time, Everything was just perfect. As well, we were very closed to Courchevel and Meribel. Thanks a lot !!!
