Sleds to have fun on the slopes after skiing !
Rental from saterday to saterday during the holidays (New Year and the 4 weeks of Carnaval) Short stays and week-ends possible on Xmas, summer and any other week that isn’t holiday but upon request.
Arrival from 5pm, check out before 9 am. Too many factors can influence the time at which a housing will be available (cleaning, absence of a member of the cleaning crew, minor repairs ...) However, ask us how are things going if you arrive early because we might have a nice surprise for you. Obviously our first objective is to please our travelers ! In any case, we will gladly keep your lugage if you plan to ski on Saterday(s).
In case you rent the apartment just for the week end, we can arrange for you to be able to stay until the end of Sunday's afternoon.
You can either choose to do the cleaning yourselves or pay for someone to do it for you. End of stay instructions to follow correctly (see house rules for detailled information).
This housing is ideal for a family with 2 or 3 kids, thus for 4 or 5 people.
Occupying this apartment at it’s full capacity implies 6 people sleeping in the living room which is anything but comfortable.
Conclusion : not recommended to sleep with more than 5 or 6 people unless you seriously disregard comfort.
6/ LARGE GROUPS
Possibility (subject to availability) for larger groups to rent other apartments side by side.
Please specify how many people are in your group, distinguishing couples, single adults, teenagers, children and babies. These indications will help us offering you what best suits your needs.
7/ SKI - SLOPES - ESF (French Ski School)
In the morning, just exit the building and you’re on a slope ! Just go and discover the beautiful ski resort of La Forêt Blanche connecting Vars and Risoul. 185 km of slopes between 900 000 larches !
In the afternoon, just slide back home !
Next to the residence, there’s a connecting slope leading you to the main ski-lifts in about 30 seconds.
Ski school meeting point super easy to reach : the connecting slope leads you straight to it ! No need to walk, just glide for 30 seconds . This is a great comfort.
8/ BENSKI’S ADVANTAGES
As we own a few apartments and we’ve been active in the ski resort for a few years now, we get discounts and other advantages that our travelers can enjoy as wel.
For instance we can offer beter prices for the ski passes (between 5 and 15% cheaper), get you a 25% discount on your ski rental, take care of your reservation at the ski school, give you advise on the snow / slopes and many other bonuses or extra services. All combined, it makes a real difference, considerably improving your stay.
Furthermore, there is always someone on site to help you or advise you
More information about all our advantages in our e-mail a few weeks before your stay.
Welcome to my place and… Risouly yours !
Hopefully, you will not hear from me except during the check-in and check-out. Otherwise, enjoy your holiday in the mountains !
If I’m not in Risoul during your stay, someone else is going to take good care of your group. There is always a member of our team on site in case of issues.
Thank you not to ask who will give you the keys or other questions that we usually get. Simply wait until a few weeks before the beginning of your stay as everything is clearly explained in our e-mail containing all the relevant information.
1/ As a reminder, occupying our accommodation to its maximum capacity greatly hinders comfort. To be at ease, please follow our occupancy recommendations unless of course you consider that the winter sports mostly take place on the slopes, thus comfort is only accessory for you and not having much space in the apartment is not an issue. Ideally 4, max 6 people in the apartment if you wish to be comfortable. We do not recommend staying there with more than 6 people. If you decide to do so, it’s an economic solution and it is therefore unnecessary to seek comfort there !
2/ The very complete kitchen contains everything one could need during a stay in the mountains, even a variety of spices and other non-perishables : salt, pepper, sugar, oil, vinegar, etc. Under the sink you’ll find cleaning products. Please do not take what’s left when you’re gone and leave your non-perishable food, it might please the next travelers.
Salut à Vous, Oh Futurs Risoulins d'adoption ^^
Je suis passionné de voyages, de ski et de montagne, de sorties culturelles et de théâtre.
J'aime par-dessus tout le cinéma d'auteur et l'authenticité, rien de formaté ou de trop dirigé.
J'ai pour devise un proverbe turc : "Celui dont le pied glisse montre le chemin à beaucoup".
Je me ferai un plaisir de vous accueillir comme il se doit à Risoul car c'est ma station de sports d'hiver depuis toujours et je l'aime passionnément.
Sauf empêchement, je vous y accueillerai d'ailleurs personnellement.
Risoul est une station d'exception. Sortez des sentiers battus si vous y venez ou je crains que vous en repartirez sans l'avoir comprise.
Vous pouvez compter sur moi pour vous donner à votre arrivée ma sélection de choses à faire hormis le ski, de restos "locaux" moins touristiques et de bars sympas parmi mes préférés, et ce pour tous les budgets.
Quant aux bons plans pour skier au soleil du matin au soir, du 10 décembre au 30 avril, vous pouvez compter sur mes conseils et sur des prospectus précieux dont je dispose.
Enfin, en été, je vous renseignerai également sur la multitude de choses à faire car, si vous ne connaissez pas Risoul à la belle saison, c'est assurément à essayer !
Bienvenue chez moi en tout cas.
