The facilities that you will get from one apartment to the next can often wary quite a lot so it is important to check that the facilities that are on offer in your chosen ski apartrment will match your requirements. In some apartments you will simply get a kitchenette which may have simple facilities such as a fidge, microwave and two hobs, whilst in others you might get a full kitchen.
Some of the that is terminology that is used to decribe self catered ski apartments can sometimes rather confusing. Bunk beds and sofa beds are pretty straight forward but the difference between a studio and an apartment, and the definition of a cabine can sometimes lead to people not knowing what is best for them.
The big difference bewteen a studio and an apartment is that a studio is totally open plan with the sleeping, living and cooking space. If you book a studio apartment for four people then you will all be sleeping the same room so make sure that you are comfortable with that. However, an apartments will have a seperate bedroom. There may still be sofa beds in the living room or bunk beds in the hall way but there will at least be a seperation of sleeping area.
When you see an apartments that says it has at least one bedroom then it means that it will be a big enough sized bedroom to fit whateever bed combination is stated (eg a doouble bed or twin single beds). However, a cabine is slightly different. It will normally include bunk beds andnit can sometimes be a very small seperate room or sometimes it will just be an alcove or seperaterd off sleeping area.
