Enjoyed a fab week here in January 14. The chalet is in an excellent location by the piste so great for ski in/ski out.
The bedrooms are a really good size compared to other chalets I've stayed in with an abundance of storage space. The shower was a double size and the view from the room over Plagne centre and the mountain backdrop was breathtaking.
The lounge and dining room on the top floor also have fab panoramic views and are great for socialising with other guests or just relaxing with a book. The chalet has a public bar which doesn't get much passing trade so was mostly just guests. Wifi is available in the communal areas only and was a bit intermitent, its a shame they dont extend it to the whole chalet.
All the staff were great especially Catherine who came out sledging with us to the local bar, lots of fun!
The food was good with a new menu every day, although tended to be standard meat and two veg. I wish the chefs would be a bit more adventurous rather than stay traditional. The wine with the meal was plentiful.
The chalet hosted a quiz one night which was good fun although my other suggestion would be to host a bar crawl, which we have usually had at other chalets in the past.
We used the in-house ski rental which was good and saved the hassle of going out to a hire shop and lumbering skis back up the slope.
Overall an excellent holiday in a great ski resort.
