“Ski Chalet/flat”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

The Chalet host worked very hard to provide a good service. Access to the piste and lifts was not convenient. The Chalet was small and the sound proofing very poor therefore making sleeping difficult when shared with noisy guests.

Reviewed 28 February 2014

We rented a 5-bedroom room in Feb 2014. The weakest feature of the residence are small bedrooms, which make it nearly impossible for a couple to stay in a double bedroom, with even one person feeling crumpled. Then the whole location is a bit run-down, e.g. an occasional radiator is not functioning, or the sauna heater breaks down. All this accompanied by a typically French service.

Room Tip: Choose a different residence, something newer.

With another family we took over Chalet Alys, booked through Inghams. The skiing in VT is outstanding - second to none for variety and queue management. The chalet is on a road (with cars/buses driving far too fast) and about 100m walk to the piste (a bit easier on return, though tricky ski down not for beginners, especially if icy). Unfortunately however our accommodation was disappointing. Our lovely chalet host, Liam, really tried hard and produced good food. But he had been provided with poor ingredients and insufficient equipment to do his job. Only one kitchen knife. Cheap ingredients, or no ingredients (porridge?). Bizarre limits on things (Nutella only allowed with pancakes - solved by a trip to Sherpa, but penny pinching). At dinner he had to wash the cutlery half way through so we had sufficient for dessert - (what is that about Inghams?) The central heating in the bedrooms didn't work (at all) and the hot water ran out by 7pm. The ski lockers had heating but it was never switched on (in spite of asking). We also had an Inghams member of staff sleeping in the chalet with us. He was very nice, and it wasn't a big issue, except it isn't mentioned in the brochure and a bit of a surprise. So we will be back to Val Thorens, but not with Inghams.

We stayed here with 8 people and we cooked ourselves. Good kitchen with enough kitchensupplies. The rooms were clean and the beds were sufficient. We liked that each couple had their own bathroom. Extra credit goes to the two ladies at the reception. They had a hard time keeping the noisy groups of teenagers in line. Respect for their patience and way they handeled it.

Great apartment, friendly and extremely helpful staff. The atmosphere was everything you can expect from a mountain chalet for a very good price. It is close to the centre and you can ski back to the chalet. We would definitely go back there.

The Chalet Altitude is a great building in a decent location. The Chalet host worked wonders with the resources allowed him, but frankly there are some areas Inghams should be considering carefully for next season. - Avoid Inghams when booking here!
The building is close to several ski rental shops (Intersport and ski2000 are closest, skiset a bit further) , bars and restaurants. its a ski in / walk out property whatever the brochures claim, but the walk is down hill and only about 50 meters to the piste that runs through the town.

The pool area seemed nice but was always crowded when we wanted to use it, and the ski lockers are tight but adequate if everyone is skiing. Good luck fitting 8 boards in your allotted space.
Plumbing was so-so: often running out of hot water at peak times.

Stay here if you get a bargain offer - it is not a high spec place.

Room Tip: probably higher the better

Chalet was perfect for what we needed. We were in Chalet Anais with 6 others, was lovely to be in a smaller chalet from previous years of a chalet for 14. We booked this through Inghams and they were a really good your operator, would book through them again, with thanks to George for being a great host. Downside the pool was cold, and sauna and pool were very small for how big the whole block is. Please note it's a black run which takes you back to the chalet at the end of the day.
