“Value for Money in a Quiet Resort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2009

We stayed in a lodge, number 1. This officially sleeps 8. Two on a sofa bed, two on bunk beds in the living room, 2 in a double bedroom and 2 in another. We had 4 people in there whihc was about right. The toilet seat was broken and despite complaining it was never fixed. Bedding and towels had to be hired, rooms very very small with limited storage and paper thin walls. Kitchen and table to eat on, hob, microwave, dishwasher (bring your own tablets, toilet roll, cleaning scrubs, fairy etc as they cost a bit in the local spar). Bathroom with toilet and a seperate shower room and sink. The heaters were very good and kept the place warm. On chechout you have to clean the place which is tricky as the vacuums that can be located in the stairways have sucked many years of dirt. The accomodatation was very good value for money though and Plagne Soliel is a small, sleepy place. We walked to Plagne centre to eat most nights which was a 10 minute walk or there is a free bus.

Other friends stayed in the actual chalets up the hill which have ski in and ski out (although a difficult icy blue run). These has 3 floors I think with their own boot room, couple of showers (one en suite) and also a real fire.

If you are after luxury then do not stay here. The chalets are better than the lodges that sleep 8. Bring your own towels and cleaning stuff. If you want a bit of value for money and are more bothered about the skiing and spending time with friends then this accomodation will be fine. On that basis I woudl recommend it, just do not plan for full occupancy!

Just returned from skiing at la plagne. Stayed at chalet des alpages which i can only say was awful.

Paid top dollar for six person "lodge" and to find beds in hall way and our fifth guest was to sleep on very worn out sofa bed. Linen supplied at extra cost and not made up beds. Told it was four star but i would struggle to give it two star. Tiny chalet - no facilities to cook really apart from tiny microwave with a grill element in it. No greeting - manager did not try to help at all - big disappointment. Manager stated chalet des alpages are not self catered chalets but "non self catered" even though supplied fridge and diswasher and a dirty hob? Big fat con! Ensure you check if you staying in a lodge or a chalet. The new chalets look good that are being built.

We were expected to clean our lodge after our stay but I felt it a farse as it would have made it cleaner than on the day we arrived - mould in shower - dirty toilets etc etc.


Holiday was not ruined as snow was brilliant slopes well maintained and weather beautiful.

Very expensive resort!

booked our first skiing experience through snowfoxholidays.com in la plagne soleil. accomodation was in the chalets alpages (8 in our group 4 adults 4 kids ages 9 to 13yrs). We arrived on the overnight snowtrain at 8am and were warmly greeted by one of the company chalet hosts and given breakfast (much needed). Luckily we had one of the bottom chalets as there are quite a few higher up with lots of stairs to carry luggage and ski stuff at the end of the day!!
The accomodation was adequate for 8 people but would have been cosy if full occupancy of 10 people staying. The bedrooms were a little on the small side with little storage but comfortable. Our chalet host Nikki was excellent all week, fab cook and very friendly and informative about the local area.
could ski from chalet on a blue run straight out the back or short walk (5mins) to the centre
would definately book through snowfox again.

ski school experience with ESF in la plagne soleil not so good, our instructor was more of a tour guide and considering we had very little prior experience didn't actually teach us anything structured. More of a DIY ski school following a guide down the slopes.

loads of pistes in the resort so never got bored with the views

Hmmm.. a mixed bag.

We paid £2,200 for a chalet sleeping 10 people over the New Year 2006/7. I think that is top money. But the chalet was not what I was expecting for that kind of money.

All the bedrooms are small. Each has very little storage or anywhere to unpack your bags. Several of the double beds have no access down the side so you have to clamber over your partner or dive in from the bottom. The en suite is nice but little headroom so if you are over 5ft 6ins then you have to shower bending over. Quaint on day one, really annoying on day 6.

The chalet was fused to 60amps. Heating is electric so if you have the heating on to dry your clothes and put the oven on then the fuse blows,. Funny on day one, really annoying on day 6 and dangerous if you are in the shower.

Kitchen nice but few kitchen utensils were available and other kitchen items were not provided.

Sitting area OK, but not enough sofa space for even our 8 people. Hence 2 of us ended up sitting on a wooden chairs for the night. Fine on day one, rubbish on day 6!

Beds not made up on arrival - greeted by grey duvets when you first enter - and you have to clean the chalet when you leave. No cleaning stuff is provided - they will sell you stuff for 5 Euros - but when I paid 3300 Euros for the chalet could they not have given me that - or am I being tight?

A few moans and groans in the office from families who found their chalet dirty on arrival hence they didn't clean it when they left.

All in all not too bad. If you are a party of 10 and not too fussy about the accommodation then happy days, if you wanted better then look elsewhere. I stayed in the MGM apartments in La Plagne last year and they were much better and cheaper (Full when I tried to get in with 8 this year).

  • Liked — Family and friends together
  • Disliked — Perception of it being expensive for what we got
  • Tips/Secrets — Look elsewhere first and use this as the one to beat
