We were a party of 9 adults and found the chalet to be very spacious and comfortable. All the furnishings are comfortable and of good quality, and the pictures are an accurate representation of what you get. Initially we were one dining chair short, but we requested an extra chair and this appeared promptly- the owners and property management team were both very helpful and easy to contact.
The chalet itself is a 2 minute drive (or free bus ride) out of Plagne 1800, just off the (surprisingly quiet) main mountain road. There are no shops in the hamlet of Crete Cote itself, so best to stock up before arriving and top up at one of the nearby supermarkets in resort. There is a large fridge, freezer and proper oven and hob, as well as microwave.
The views from the chalet are great- un-interrupted mountain vistas.
Skiing was good and we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get to the slopes. We had good snow, so it was possible to walk across the road and ski down a track which joins near the bottom of a red run, and from there a chair lift takes you up to Plagne Aime (with access to the rest of the area from there). But the ski bus stop is very close- a minute's walk if you don't fancy the track.
To ski back, go down the Roche Red run, and where the piste meets the road, take skis off and walk 5 mins down the road back to chalet. Alternatively, you can ski (via blue runs) to Plagne 1800, past the '1800' lift, walk across the road and car park, and ski down a walking track, bear left and short wooded track takes you back to the chalet- couple of minutes- (or walk down the track- about 4-5 minutes in ski gear). Alternatively just catch the bus which runs hourly and stops pretty much directly outside chalet.
Great chalet; we would definitely return there.

“Fantastic chalet and location”

We have recently returned from a week in La Plagne, we stayed in Chalet Etoile as a group of 10 adults and a 1 year old! The chalet was absolutely gorgeous, really nicely presented and cosy. The kitchen was really well kitted out and there was even a slow cooker, great for self catering! There are plenty of food shops near by, to keep costs down we took a lot of food over and did a big shop in one of the larger towns before driving up to the chalet. All the bedrooms were very comfortable and there were enough bathrooms (with plenty of hot water) to keep everyone happy. The views were stunning and luckily weather was on our side.

The chalet is about 5 minutes drive from Plagne Centre, there is a free bus that takes you up to the main resort every hour, the bus stop is a minute or 2 walk from the chalet. Getting back to the chalet is really easy as well, either on the bus or you could snowboard/ski down to Plagne 1800 and then take short walk through the trees (5minutes) straight back to the chalet.

There is plenty of parking outside the chalet, however snow blankets or snow tyres may be needed.

We would definitely recommend Chalet Etoile and La Plange we had a fantastic time (with only 1 fractured arm!!), it provided a great base for our holiday and was good value for money.
