Alpine Elements runs this chalet as a catered Chalet. Accommodation is on three levels.
This Chalet is located in a good position very close to the lifts. The chalet, although having had a bit of an upgrade (the bathroom tiles looked quite new), suffers from some serious problems.
The chalet is very noisy, for a number of reasons, firstly the doors to the rooms are very thin and also have a strong spring giving them a tendency to slam shut.. Secondly the dining and sitting rooms have no doors and as such, the noise made by anyone in these rooms travels up the open stairwell through the building. The central location of the Chalet also means there is some traffic noise and noise from people leaving the nearby pubs in the early hours of the morning.
The Chalet dining room consists of three long tables and is horribly cramped when full as it was during our stay. The sitting room is also inadequate for the number of people the Chalet holds and would benefit from the addition of a TV.
Bedrooms conform to the usual French standard of being on the small side. Our en-suite bathroom was clean and functional although the sink was blocked on our arrival (one of our group being a plumber soon had it fixed). Strangely no soap was supplied in the bathrooms. One towel per person was supplied which was changed midway through the week..
Breakfast we found to be poor, three choices of flakes, a basket of bread and assorted jams supplemented by a different hot option per day, for example: beans on toast, one slice of bacon and French toast or a single pancake. Orange juice on the table, you have to make your own tea/coffee from the station in the sitting room.
Cake is supplied during the afternoon with main three course meals served in the evening. Generally the evening meals were OK, with a variety of foods served throughout the week.
The staff running the Chalet (who also lived in) were very attentive and friendly and gave no cause for complaint.
If you book this Chalet at full price you might feel a bit aggrieved as location alone does not justify the price of this Chalet.. You may be better off staying at the Mark Warner Hotel across the road which is being refurbished for next season.
