Built in 2005, Newmoon is a large (150 sq m) flat in a private chalet containing only 5 apartments. The 3 bedrooms are on the ground floor, two of which open onto the garden terrace through french windows.

Decorated in wood and rustic plaster, with rugs on the floors and individually controlled heating, they can all be configured to your liking, as double or twin bedrooms. The third bedroom is the largest and is at the rear of the apartment.

All rooms are en-suite, with one bathroom and two shower-rooms, decorated with rustic marble tiles and powerful showers. There is plenty of storage with built-in wardrobes in all rooms.

The communal areas have underfloor heating, regulated by thermostat ensuring you come home to a warm reception. Stone floors and rugs throughout add to the alpine experience, with subtle wood walls and furniture and wall lighting in the sitting room.

A large flat screen television, connected to the cable network, means you can keep abreast of current affairs or sporting events. A DVD player and DVD collection are also available, should a quiet moment be necessary, and there is broadband internet access throughout. An entry hall and upstairs toilet make entertaining easy.

If you choose to self-cater, the kitchen is brand new and fully fitted with all modern conveniences: 4 ceramic hobs; convection oven; microwave / conventional oven combination; marble work surfaces; double sink; dishwasher; tall fridge freezer and breakfast bar. There is also a washing machine and dryer in the apartment.

The views are superb, and as good as anywhere in the village, uninterrupted across the valley. To maximise them, there is a large balcony from the sitting room with enough room to seat a dinner party in the summer and a large garden with terrace, accessible from the balcony or bedrooms.

If you self-drive there is parking for two cars in the underground car park, with lift access straight into the chalet.
