“Lovely apartment, great village resort.”
Reviewed 4 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed in Apartement Buqa over Christmas. Buqa is in a small group of Chalets a few minutes walk from the village centre and a few minutes more from the cable car. As a family of 4 we had loads of space to spread out and occupy all of the spacious apartment. Before travelling our host Elan gave us some good tips for restaurants and arranging our ski-ing at nearby Samoens1600 (part of the extensive Grand Massif group of pistes); and whilst in residence Gilles was available for any needs. The apartment is well kitted out, with lots of AV firepower and gadgets to keep everybody happy in the quiet moments when not ski-ing, enjoying the views or dining out in the village. Xmas in Samoens was a delight. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend the apartment and the location. Elan was very helpful throughout.

“The Perfect Holiday Home and Resort”
Reviewed 8 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This is the second time I have stayed at Buqa and although they were two years apart the quality of the apartment has remained in pristine condition, the technology just keeps improving and the attention to detail is crazy, even down to the signature embroidered Buqa towels and bed sheets. My Partner and I went to relax and this was the perfect solution, if we wanted to explore the beautiful landscape we had enough on offer to entertain us, including the shopping in Chamonix which is only 30 minutes away by car.. and if we decided not to leave the apartment the view was fantastic enough to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by or we could watch the immense film collection or even the UK channels showing XFactor.. The holiday resort is perfect for summer vacations but we cannot wait to explore the skiing next year with the children...

Management Response

Great feedback Yelena. Thank you for the great review. We knew that shower tap had been damaged along with the bath side panel. Luckily all was still functioning correctly, unfortunately it was not possible to repair "in season" as we were fully booked and we did not want to cause too much disruption with cosmetic faults.
The work has now been carried out in full.
Thanks for helping spread the good word, your feedback is invaluable.
