Chalet Chloe
Reviewed 20 January 2014

Having read the three previous reports I was amazed that I actually stayed in the same location that those reports are written about. I'm amazed at what some people expect from their accommodation. For one, if you are going on holiday for Michelin star quality food then why are you staying in a catered chalet?
Everyone is fully aware that catered chalets are hosted by seasonaire's who are usually in their late teens or early twentys. They are catering for numerous guests from all walks of life and are on a limited budget so pleasing everyone is virtually impossible. If you want Jamie Oliver cooking for you and your family every morning and evening then don't go and stay in a chalet, go and spend over £700 extra per person instead. By the way, do you really need new towels, bed sheets and room cleaning every day of your stay? Most people are perfectly capable of spending 30 seconds each day making their own bed, I know I am.

Now for those who live in the real world, READ ON!!!!

I have just returned from a week of skiing in Val Thorens and I stayed at Chalet Noella in this complex, courtesy of Ski Total.

The building is approximately 4 years old and is split into three chalets over 4 floors. The fixtures and fittings are the highest quality I have ever seen in a ski chalet, the owner certainly didn't spare any cash in that department. Very impressed.

Chalet Noella is on the bottom two floors of the complex, with the kitchen, dining and lounge area above the 4 bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have full sized baths (one corner) and the other two have outstanding showers with shower heads approx. 10" across. The beds are modern and very comfy (memory foam, med / firm). Unlike most chalets the walls are solid and great for sound proofing. The rooms are also comfortably warm. We never turned the heater on once and the room was around 20 degrees all the time, not too warm, not too cool. There is Wi-Fi available in the chalet and this was more than powerful enough, even with numerous guests using it simultaneously.

I hear folks moaning about the food, well, maybe we were extremely lucky to have Jess as out host but her cooking skills were absolutely outstanding throughout the week. Every meal was cooked to absolute perfection and everyone in the chalet left an empty plate for every meal. To give a rough idea of standard, I would have absolutely no issues with paying £40+ per head for a restaurant meal of that standard. I'm in my late 30s and the other guests ranged from late 20s to early 20s and we were all very pleased with the food. NOTE - Jess's post slope cakes are to die for. The coffee is also very good, ground coffee in a percolator. If you want a barista in your chalet then your in need of a reality check.

Spa / Sauna / Steam room:
The above is shared by all three chalets and although I didn't see a spa I did use the sauna and steam room everyday. They are of a standard on par with my local gym, again very high quality and they do what they say on the tin!!

Boot / Ski room:
This is without doubt the best I've ever seen. There are wooden benches to sit on while putting your boots on. The skis / boards are stored in purpose built racks, the boots are stored on purpose built heated drying machines / racks.

Ski in / Ski out?
It depends on the weather, as the way to the slopes is via the main road outside the chalet. On the week I was there the road wasn't covered in snow so I had to walk the 100 metres to the slope. Yes, you read it right, A WHOLE 100 METRES. If this puts you off staying at the chalet then you really need to consider if Skiing / Boarding is for you, both sports will burn over 3000 calories in a day. So if you're going to moan about a 75 second walk at the start and end of the day then maybe it's time to look for a new winter hobby.

Overall:
I highly recommend this complex (especially Chalet Noella) but only for folks who are living in the real world!!!!

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 2 I think. It was the one with a bath and balcony but not the corner bath.

We had a great stay at Chalet Chloe. Will the host could not have been more accommodating, he is a credit to SkiTotal. The room we stayed in (with a bath) was not enormous but the beds were really comfy and the place was spotless and nicely decorated. The food was well cooked and tasty and just the right amount after a day of skiing. The location is ski in ski out if you are intermediate otherwise the free ski bus picks you up nearby if you are new to skiing. The chalet has a whole was very comfy, the steam room was very useful and I would stay there again.

The Ski Total site claims high quality food and wine. We have experienced very average food, were offered one can of baked beans between 8 of us, budget salami and ham and sausages that we doubt have ever seen a pig, much less a well reared one. The coffee offered is instant in spite of our requesting real coffee for the very dirty coffee machine. Corn fakes are 'value' brand and milk is UHT. There is no fruit. Fruit juice is concentrate . The croissants are frozen defrosted and horrid and even the bread (is this actually France??) and hard!!!!!!There is no washing up liquid and dirty cloths for wiping tables down.The 'wellness spa' is not one... There is a small sauna and steam room but this is most certainly NOT a 'wellness spa to relax in'. The manager, Ben, has just advised us that this food situation is because they are cutting back on stocks as it is end of season!!! This is appalling. We would not recommend. Chalet maids from other Chalets came in and out at will without knocking too.

EspritHolidays, Manager at Chalet Chloe, responded to this reviewResponded 18 April 2013

It is disappointing that there appear to have been some shortcomings in resort, despite the stock being readily available for our chalet hosts to provide to our guests. The Resort Manager did deal with several of the issues raised while ‘vickyG720’ was in resort with us, so it is hoped that this was appreciated, as were the additional gestures that he made. We strive to ensure that our guests experience the same high level of service from the first week of the season to the last which, in the Chalet Chloe, has been of a very high standard indeed!

Chalet Chloe is described as ski in, ski out. Not quite the case but the location is good - situated about 2 min walk from plein sud it's great to get to the slopes
The chalet is in a bigger chalet broken into smaller ones.
Chloe has four rooms and sleeps 10. The bedrooms are nice, small but tidy and clean.
The bathroom had he most amazing shower ever which is much needed after a hard day on the slopes
The beds are comfortable and nice.
The living area is spacious with plenty of seating the balcony is lovely with fab views.
The only criticism were that the towels in the bathroom were not changed regularly and for the price the food is not brilliant very samey and average
We probably would go self catering next year
But can't wait to go back to val thoren
