Alpages de Chantel has a true ski-in, ski-out location just off the Chantel blue run - from the ski locker room you can walk about 5 metres and put your skis on. The piste there is quite gentle - we were there with a complete beginner and she was able to start skiing in and out from the second day.
The location is a 10 minute walk down the piste to get to the Charvet area of Arc 1800 where the shops and most of the bars and restaurants are, but the walk back up is more of a struggle and instead you can take the free shuttle bus which takes about 5 minutes and goes every 20 minutes. If you want to enjoy a lot of apres-ski or dining out then this is probably not the best location, but there is a small bar and a good restaurant next to the apartments. There are no shops at Chantel but you can order bakery to your apartment by reception.
The reception staff were really friendly and helpful and spoke very good English.
We really enjoyed the swimming pool and spa area. The swimming pool is really beautiful and a good size and the steam room was great for relaxing after a day's skiing.
Our apartment was very small - there were 5 of us in an apartment that could supposedly sleep 6 (and that we were charged under-occupancy for!). One of us was on a sofa bed and two were in a very small bunk bed room. There was only seating around the dining table for 4 people. However, the beds were comfortable and the apartment was nicely presented and clean. The view from the apartment to the mountains was stunning.
The free internet was reliable but too slow for anything other than email or web browsing.
Overall I would definitely stay here again, we had a fantastic holiday and really enjoyed being able to ski right to our door.
