When choosing where to stay do keep in mind that the village is quite spread out, running along two sides of a valley, with a river at the bottom splitting it in two. The base station for the mountain is a little way away from the village centre, and many of the chalets a little distance from both. There are pretty footpaths down to the bottom of the valley and up again, as well as regular ski buses doing the rounds, but check exactly where your accommodation is if easy accessibility is important to you.
