Reviewed 16 January 2010

We had a fantastic week at Alpage, thanks to owner Thierry and rest of the team. It's a lovely small chalet right under a t-bar lift providing easy access to blue and green slopes on the Etale part of La Clusaz resort.

The hotel's ski room, sauna, covered pool and jacuzzi, as well as reliably delicious and abundant breakfast and 3-course dinner (plus great fresh snow) made for a picture perfect Settimana Bianca!

The week we were there (Jan 4) definitely started off a bit family-friendly - lots of kids at dinner, in sauna, etc. But seemed to shift more towards couples as schools started up again after winter holidays.

Our room (9) had a great balcony with view toward Clusaz town and the mountains, but being top floor, had slanted ceilings so we couldn't stand in shower. Rooms 4,5,6 have the same view, but on first floor with same view from balcony.

Can't wait to go back next year!

We spent our second Christmas year with our two young children and my parents.This hotel continues to improve with newly upgraded rooms added this time.We loved it last year and were not disappointed this year either. The location allows us to ski directly into the village from the hotel and back home down home via the beauregard lift. There is a free bus service from the hotel entrance to the village.Along with the outdoor jacuzzi ,enclosed swimming pool and sauna there is plenty of areas to relax when finished with the days skiing.Food is excellent and having been to Zermatt,Val d'Isere and many others resorts this is a wonderful resort and a super hotel

Each year we go to Ischgl, St Anton or somewhere similiar for a week of apres ski chaos. But we also try pick a smaller venue for a two-day-off-work-four-days-boarding warm-up, less focus on the apres ski and more on the slopes and good food.
Chalet Alpage was perfect, so perfect we have already booked in for 2010. We arrived late due to the arrival time in Geneva but Thierry kept some food for us. In the morning we picked up lift passes across the road and headed off exploring. La Clusaz isn't a large resort but big enough and with the ability to head down a near private mountain to the Chalet Alpage backdoor it fit the bill perfectly.

The rooms are clean and neat, the living space is perfect for sitting back for a chat in front of a full fire and the hot tub is perfectly placed for a view over the mountains. The evening meals were stunning from way to go, not too rich and far more varied than I expected.

La Clusaz is a perfect location for a short break, and the Chalet Alpage is the ideal location for rest and relaxation.

Our family stayed with Thierry again this year in Alpage and we experienced the same excellent quality of food and hospitality this year. The rooms we stayed in had been tastefully refurburbished and very comfortable. The pool was also warmer. Great trip.

Hotel Chalet Alpage was everything we'd hoped it would be - plus some more.

After reading reviews here we booked to stay directly with the owner and resident manager, Thierry. Helpful and simple booking.

A lovely small ski lodge type hotel, postioned very nicely just outside La Clusaz - lots of parking, right by the ski busstop and in a great location with a nice view. We were welcomed even though we arrived late for dinner and food and tables laid out for us even though it would have been easy to say 'too late to eat'. A good start.

The hotel is decorated with an amazing array of ski antiques from Thierry's time as a dealer. Really interesting stuff and much better than the usual fake hotel decoration.

Rooms were small but nicely done; warm, great views (room 4) and just fine for a 2 + 1 family. The hotel itself was nicely laid out and was small enough to make you feel special but large enough that people had enough space to not be on top of each other. Specifc things that are worth pointing out :

> TV/DVD area for kids to watch a movie on the 50" widescreen without disturbing other guests - Thierry would often be seen offering the latest movies to the children - nice touch
> Bar / den - for a good card game in front of roaring fire
> Boot room with warmers - but security an issue here and due to no room numbering of ski racks and boot warmers and the use by most guests of the same ski rental shop - we had situations where people accidentally took the wrong ski's / boots / poles and this caused problems. Be sure to lock up or label your stuff carefully if you rent.
> Hot-Tub - lovely but a bit dirty; this is probably beacuse it was last week in the season - and don't forget to put the cover back on
> Sauna - brand new, very nice - just be sure not to leave any towels on the floor - again, the great man is watching.
> TV in room - no proper cable channels - but Thierry says they are planning to do this, this year.
> Pool - fantastic, heated and large - a real plus.
> Internet - could be much better - slow (no charge) wifi - but needs improving.
> Restaurant - we had lovely food varied every night - true chalet style - all managed and served by the wonderful and charismatic (and pretty) Tara who was the embodiment of professional at all times. She was right on top of everything, for example kids (and even us adults) were made to say 'Please' and 'Thank-you' when they should - its like having a school teacher on hand - and to behave they way they should. Fantastic - hope she's there when we return next year.

It worth mentioning the wonderful character that Thierry brings to the place; ist not without its issues - but overall he's a great addition. Would we go back - for sure. Its a great place and Thierry's reinvests a lot of time, money and himself in his place and I'd recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here for one week in February half term and can't fault it - we had a really super time. We chose to book our ski holiday to 'La Clusaz' after reading an article in the 'Sunday Times' and then chose our accomodation through trip advisor reviews - we were n't disappointed!

The chalet is situated out of the main town, in a peaceful location, adjacent to a button lift station which is across the road from the front of the chalet - you can get your lift pass here and access the 'Laquais' ski area. From the back of the chalet you can ski into into La Clusaz via a green run. We stored our boots and skis in the hotels heated boot room.

We stayed in room 2 which slept 5 - it comprised of a double bedroom with a sort of cabin area within it with bunk beds, and then a further small single bedroom. We had one small shower room and a lovely big balcony with a great view. The shower room was dated but functional and the bedrooms were fairly compact but clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space.

The small bar area and lounge were lovely places to sit and have a drink after skiing, and we also really enjoyed relaxing in the outdoor hot tub and having a sauna. Our children enjoyed using the covered outdoor pool but it was too cold for the adults.

The food was really great and catering for our families different dietry needs wasn't a problem.

We travelled with our six children who all agreed this was our best ski holiday ever! The location of the hotel was excellent with ski in/out onto a green run down into the village or a blue run across the road. It was luxurious to come off the slopes at the end of the day and fall into the hot tub while the children swam in the pool. The evenings were spent eating scrumptious gourmet food and relaxing by the fire. Can't wait to return.
