Home Sweet Home

The Apartment

We hope that you have everything you need for a comfortable stay in Flaine.

 

We love our little apartment and really want you to relax and treat it as a home from home and with love and care, leaving it in good and tidy condition.

 

When you arrive in the apartment the beds will be made (the bedding for the sofa bed) and the apartment will have been cleaned.  There will be a set of clean towels for everyone (1x hand towel 1x bath sheet) and a bath mat in the bathroom.

 

There is an indicative inventory on the next page so you can see what there is in the apartment and plan your stay accordingly.  Cooking is by means of a two ring electric hob and a small Ninja flip up oven.  No roast dinners, we are afraid!!  Who wants to be cooking when you could be skiing, relaxing and eating out!

 

When you arrive there will be a welcome bag for you with some basics.  There is also salt, pepper, olive oil, tea bags, washing up liquid, hand soap, kitchen roll, dish brush and coffee filters for your use.

                                                                                               

We want to draw your attention to the fact that we have for your use in the apartment: a (decent) hairdryer, Bluetooth speaker, TV, DVD player (with HDMI port), sledges and stand up sledge/scooters, Nespresso machine and the apartment has a dishwasher.

 

There are some adaptors too – please leave these behind for others but do use them when you are there.

 

We hope that this saves you some packing space!

 

The apartment is well equipped but if there is something absolutely necessary missing please do let us know upon your return.

 

There should be enough hot water for everyone and this is centrally heated and not independently by the apartment. 

 

The balcony is south facing and a wonderful place to enjoy a drink after a day on the slopes – please make sure you lock the door when you come inside. 

 

This is done via the handle and there is no key.

 

Also please do close the curtains during the day if it is sunny as the apartment gets full sun and can get rather warm!

 

When you are not in the apartment please turn all lights off.

 

Large bins are on the ground floor – down the stairs – left through the doors – left along the corridor and through the last door on your left.

 

Please may we remind you that this is a NO SMOKING apartment and NO PETS ALLOWED

Little Quirks

There are a couple of little quirks of the apartment. 

These are not regular occurrences but nonetheless they have happened!

 

 

  1. The little heater in the bathroom!

 

Generally, the apartment is really warm, even in bad weather, but some people in the past have turned on this little heater in the bathroom.  There is no on and off switch for this but it appears a timer that implies minutes.  The timer also appears to be a little less than accurate.  The heater came with the apartment and unless you need it – we would suggest you leave well alone!  However, it seems to stop after a while – so just be very wary when turning the timer knob!

 

If you work out how to tame this beast, please do let us know!

 

 

 

 

  1. Trip switch

 

There has only been 1 time when the electricity tripped. 

However, if this ever happens, firstly check the amount of items you have plugged in and if there is a lot (as this is what caused the one and only trip) unplug some.

The trip switches are above the main door.

Check these.  If the small ones are down pop them up.  If they are all up but the large button on the black box is out – push this back in.
