Chalet Foxtrot
Reviewed 26 December 2013

It's a tiny chalet and good for large family or a group of intimate friends who enjoy spending time together, otherwise you should choose somewhere bigger (more roomy) and closer to town for the partying. The bedrooms and the bathrooms are tiny but for the price we paid we could not complain. At least the layout was quite good given the limited space there was. Our biggest issue was the very uncomfortable mattresses, as anyone would agree a good night sleep is probably quite high on the agenda for this type of ski trip (the chalet is quite far away from tow centre with not much else to do in the evenings). If you are looking for hard core partying, this chalet / resort is pretty much out of the question due to the poor connectivity. Praise to the really friendly chalet girl from Ski Total who did an excellent job cooking and preparing the chalet for us. WE find all the staff from Ski Total generally very friendly and helpful. Cant say the chalet is 4 star but the staff almost made up for it (almost though)! Excellent value for money. but i would have paid GBP100 extra for sauna facilities.

Room Tip: they are all small rooms but does the job....

This chalet is labeled four-star which is a gross exaggeration.

• The boot room was miniscule and unheated. There was nowhere to sit to put on your boots or take them off and a request in the welcome pack to refrain from wearing ski boots indoors left us nowhere to get ourselves sorted. The boot warmers were ineffective and one of them was actually broken.
• There was insufficient hot water for eight guests. This was unacceptable. Arriving back after a day’s skiing, aching, sweaty and cold, a hot shower is an absolute necessity. The welcome pack pointed out that guests should stagger showers and baths. Had I known this before booking I would have not chosen this chalet.
• My husband and I were in bedroom three with the double bed. It was two star at best. The bathroom is possibly the smallest I have ever been in, the bed sagged in the middle, the door frame was hanging off, the shower door didn’t close properly and there was thick dust on the furnishings.
• My father in-law (bedroom 2) wanted to use his safe but wasn’t given the key despite asking for it. The small table was wobbly and one leg was nearly coming off. He mentioned it to Paul who said that the maintenance chap had fixed it but it remained the same.
• The wifi frequently did not work. We speculated that it was switched off at night time as this was the usual black spot. The television had no connection to any signal, satellite or otherwise, and was only good for watching DVDs –a point not mentioned in the brochure.
• There was no midweek towel change which is the very least I would expect in a supposed four-star chalet.
• The description of this chalet’s position makes much of its access to the Santons piste. What is conspicuously absent is the information that this piste is flat. You cannot in fact “ski down to the resort centre and main lifts” without a considerable amount of effort poling along first. We had two snowboarders in our party and would never have booked had we known. It’s exactly this type of misleading/incomplete information that infuriates people who arrive with expectations that will never be met.
• The chalet is a ten to fifteen minute walk to the centre, uphill on the way back, and the bus service stops at 8pm. It’s not convenient to pop in and out so therefore it would have been nice to have an honesty bar with drinks and snacks. This could be kept in the boot room – it’s certainly cold enough to keep the beer chilled.
