Breuil/Sporting/Chateau des Dames

Breuil/Sporting/Chateau des Dames

The Breuil is a large, well positioned hotel, central to the shops, bars and restaurants as well as the slopes. The furnishings and style are basic, but the owner couldn’t be lovelier. They also have the Chateau des Dames hotel next door and the Sporting on the high street as well some further apartments. We rate the location 4* but everything else 2*.
