Chalet Graciosa
Reviewed 20 February 2014

La Graciosa is just perfect for a ski holiday! We have stayed in numerous chalets over the last 30 years or so and this was simply the BEST!
The entire staff ,under the superb guidance of Holly and Cha were excellent. They were extremely professional,always polite and friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
We loved the ski in/ski out situation and extras not normally included in a ski holiday such as wholesome full English breakfasts and tea/coffee making facilities in our room.
The evening meals were excellent. My only complaint was the afternoon cakes were so delicious,I`m going to have to go on a diet! I have NEVER tasted such a wonderful cherry bakewell tart!
Full marks to Ski Olympic for a PERFECT holoday from start { and that includes the office as well! } to finish! We`ll be back!

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.

Having just spent a week at the Chalet Graciosa, I cannot fault anything. All of the staff are so helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The food is superb, the atmosphere is great, and you get the added advantage of ski-in / ski-out. Great place to stay and great staff - thanks for an enjoyable week.

In terms of location, Graciosa is just about perfect. You can ski to the door and the first lift is no more than 300m away. There are easy and tough ways home and there are fun bars and good restaurants a few minutes' walk away. Best of all, the amazing lounge/dining room has am astonishing panoramic view. If you fancy eating a full English breakfast while Mont Blanc lights up pink before your eyes, then don't delay to book!
La Plagne, as a resort has masses to offer and it would take a season to explore all the runs and corners of this massive resort. OK, it might be a little down on big reds compared with 3V, but quite a few of the blues have their reddish moments. It is quite expensive, but not ridiculously so, and you are in the middle of some of the world's best piste skiing.
Any negatives? Well, the place is a bit old and probably needs a refurb. Ski boots are hard on floors and the stairs seem a bit tatty in places. Some of the fittings have been replaced with cheap and flimsy. (I hate a bog seat that won't stay up!) The rooms are nice enough, but a bit "tired". None of this detracts from the comfort. Plenty of hot water and a real bath!
Best? Well, location, as already described. The food was good and plentiful and the wine abundant. Top of all were the staff. Superb management leads to enthusiastic, friendly and intelligent staff who seemed, and probably were, delighted to have us there.
We were a very mixed group of 7 with a range from very experienced skiers to near beginners and we all had a great time. I organised the trip and I have no doubt that when it comes to next year's trip a repeat will be a likely request from all.

Room Tip: The place is upside down with the exit and public rooms at the top. Go low for best quiet.

Just returned from a week in La Plagne staying at Chalet Graciosa. The amount of runs available across the paradis-ski area was fantastic... our group of 3 intermediate boarders and 1 skier found plenty to keep us interested and though the town itself is not pretty, we would definitely return for the slopes.
The chalet is placed in a perfect position near the base of one of the runs in the centre of the resort. We boarded out and in each day. The bar is less than 10m from the slopes.
The staff were fab, they reply made our stay. So friendly and great fun. We had a real laugh with them both in the chalet and in town.
The food was excellent, plentiful and tasty. We never felt the need to go elsewhere.
Room are basic but nice and very clean and warm. The manager Holly was lovely to us and always ready to offer a hair dryer when required!
All in all we really enjoyed our week here and would thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed at this chalet hotel as a couple. The set up was great with large dining tables which were shared with other guests making it a great and informal way to meet and exchange the days stories with other guests. The food is good home cooking but not of a too high restaurant standard. The bedrooms are basic but spacious and beds are comfortable. If possible get one of the triple rooms with bath in the bathroom to have extra space.
The slope side location is excellent with a 100% ski in/ski out possibility

Room Tip: room 35 a triple with bath in the bathroom, spacious and good

Pretty standard accommodation, but bathrooms better than usual and we had a full size bath.

Food much better than you would expect for a chalet hotel.

Service levels are the best I have experienced in more than 30 catered skiing trips
