A good all round purpose built resort with a lovely village setting and good shopping. The traditional pedestrianised centre has an open air ice rink and cobbled streets and a chic atmosphere. It can become very crowded at weekends with French holiday makers arriving by car. There is a lot to do off the slopes including cinemas and a casino.
