About the property

2 bedrooms, garage, free wifi, great mountain views, easy ski access

'Colchique' is a lovely 52 sq m apartment in the exciting resort of La Plagne, part of the massive Paradiski area. It is modern and well equipped and makes a perfect base for families or groups of friends holidaying together.


Apartment 'Colchique' has 2 bedrooms. One has a comfortable double bed, and plenty of storage in a large fitted wardrobe. When you open the shutter in the morning, you should have a sunny mountain view.

The second bedroom has new sturdy bunk beds suitable for children or adults, with a 3rd pull out bed so that the room can be used for 3 persons if required. A large fitted wardrobe provides plenty of storage.

An alpine style sofa in the lounge will convert into 1 or 2 single beds.

Living room

The light and airy living area has fabulous views over the Tarantaise valley and the Mont Blanc massif. There is a smart TV with British and French channels, a Chromecast, a Blu-ray/DVD player and Bluetooth audio system. Free internet and wi-fi is provided for the sole benefit of our guests. Viewing and sharing those on-piste videos and holiday pictures could not be simpler.

Kitchen and dining area

The kitchen features a multi-function built in oven, 4 ring electric hob and extractor, full size dishwasher, and large fridge with freezer compartment. Plenty of pots, pans and utensils, a cafetiere, toaster and an electric slow cooker are available.

The dining table seats 6 but if you need a bigger table an extension piece is provided.

Bathroom and lavatory

A large bathroom features a full size bath with shower over, basin and large electric towel rail. It is also home to the washing machine. There is a separate lavatory.


A good sized entrance provides plenty of space to store your ski togs away in the wardrobe. An electric boot dryer is provided to condition your ski boots for the following day.


A lovely large double aspect balcony, with morning and early afternoon sunshine, provides patio seating and a table to enjoy the magnificent views of the mountains.


A full size garage (a VW Passat fits) is available to provide covered parking for our guests - a real boon in the snowy weather.

Ski locker

A locker and boot changing room is available by the apartment block front door or it is possible to change out of your ski boots and leave your skis in the garage

Other services

Taxe de sejour is included in the price of your stay. End of stay clean is also included. Linen is available for hire if required or bring your own. Our local rep will meet you on arrival and can provide assistance with lift passes, ski hire (some companies will deliver to the apartment), ski school and loads of other information


The apartment is located at Crete Cote Village, just below Plagne 1800, and just above the Olympic bobsleigh piste.

To reach the pistes and lifts, you can take the free bus that passes the apartment every hour going up to the various La Plagne stations, or every hour going down to the La Roche lift. Skiers with a bit of experience can use the track (it was pisted last season,) opposite the apartment to join the La Roche red run. Subject to snow conditions a track leading down from Plagne 1800 will bring you down close to the Crete Cote apartments, although a bit of confidence will be needed for this. If you are taking lessons, some of the schools will pick you up to take you to lessons!

For those of you who bring a car, parking is available at La Roche or up in the other linked La Plagne resorts.

During the summer

La Plagne is great during the summer season too (July and August.) There are loads of activities for adults and kids alike - mountain biking, great walks, tennis, sports centre activities, swimming, parcours adventure (ropes in the trees) and the excellent Base de Loisirs in Aime.

About Johanna S

About us

We love skiing and love skiing in La Plagne. We have enjoyed getting the apartment ready for us to use and to rent it out for other outdoor and winter sports fans.

Johanna S purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Johanna S chose La Roche

A modern apartment built in the traditional alpine style, offering generous sized accommodation for a holiday home. Fitted out to a good specification, many of the fixtures and fittings were new for the 2015 season, and continue to be updated regularly.

Crete Cote is a quiet residential area just below Plagne 1800, making it a great base for a holiday in La Plagne. Access to the pistes is easy, with a pisted tracking giving great access to the La Roche run. In the evening it is possible through most of the season to return to within 100m or so of the apartment by taking a back route along a track from Plagne 1800. For those less confident, there is a good bus service up the mountain to Plagne 1800 or down to the La Roche lift, and back home at the end of the day.

What makes this apartment unique

We hope that if you book to stay in our apartment that you will enjoy it as much as we and our children do. We love the bright, airy feel, the spacious balcony and the just fabulous views.

La Plagne is a great place to holiday in winter or summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days skiing and staying in your apartment and our children described the holiday as the best one yet! High praise indeed. They loved sleeping in the bunk beds!

Great appartment with everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

First to start with the people, Johanna and David the owners of the property gave us all the information we needed and answered every question that we had on getting ready for our trip advise on ski rentals and driving etc, the response time was usually within an hour, really first class. Kate who looks after the appartment was also great, loads of information was given and she was really responsive to all our needs, she arranged the ski passes so that they were ready for us, we did not have to go anywhere, it was all ready. Rental Republic for ski boots and skis were also amazing, with the at appartment service we did not need to go to the rental shop.

The location is quiet, suited to families, the apartment is lovely, really comfortable and well equipped with everything that you would need. the WiFi is quick, and the smart TV great for relaxing and watching films in the evening. the kitchen has more than you need we cooked most nights and could cook anything that we wanted, the fridge is large enough to hold a weeks worth of food, unusual in holiday appartments. The beds and pilows are really comfortable also unusual for holiday homes, I could honestly not fault anything.

The bus service from the bottom of the road was great, and we ventured out a couple of times in the evening to plagne 1800 and La Roche. You can easily ski to the La Roche lift from the opening oposite the bus stop, and coming back we ususally ended the day at the La Roche Restaurant next to the lift, the people in there are lovely really welcoming with lovely log fires and serve great waffles and hot chocolate.

We had a lovely Christmas break in a beautiful appartment and location. Thank you.

Lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from chalet Colchique after a weeks stay. The apartment is spacious, immaculately clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The shower was great and the beds comfortable, both important after a day's skiing! We found the kitchen to be very well equipped with everything we needed and enjoyed making use of the Raclette machine. it was great to have the garage space for our car. We tended to leave our skis in there overnight/ change into our boots there in the am. It was a short walk across the road to the track which joined the red run to the La Roche chair in the morning. The queue was never long and it takes you up quickly to join the extensive ski area.

David also kindly sent us the directions for the track home from plagne 1800 which enabled us to ski back to the chalet most evenings.

The terrace is lovey, we wrapped up in the blankets provided and had a few evening drinks out there.

Johanna and David have both been extremely prompt in their replies to our emails answering all of the questions we had. I highly recommend this apartment and we will definitely be back.

Comfortable, cosy, and well equipped chalet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in March 2017, we found the chalet to be very comfortable, spacious, and well equipped for relaxing after skiing, with games/movies/wifi etc. Great views from the balcony too. Would definitely recommend.

All nearly perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We spent one week in this apartment - the equipment was very good, in the kitchen all what you need and it was very clean. The Internet works very fast. The communication with Johanna and Kate was very good and all was done to make our holiday to a perfect stay.

The only thing, we have had some problems: when 4 persons come from skiing and want to take a shower, it was not enough hot water for all. Kate told us what will help, but we have to wait 2 hours that new hot water was available.

The years before we have been in another appartment in Crete Cote Village with the same size of boiler - there weren't any problems, perhaps this problem can be solved in the future.

Thanks for all!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a good holiday and found almost everything to be perfect! I am looking into the hot water issue that you mentioned - I suspect that a setting on the boiler had been changed - we can put that right! Kind regards, Johanna.

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week staying in this clean, well appointed and spacious apartment. The owners information pack and communications were quite excellent and we were blessed with great snow and sun. Garage parking was a real bonus and so too was the ability to ski down a short track and onto a red run in the mornings. We did also use the shuttle bus which was staggeringly punctual and gave an alternative start to the days skiing. We ate out a couple of times and again used the bus to and fro. All in all, a smashing apartment. We'll be back!

Situated in La Plagne, part of the massive Paradiski area, there really is something for skiers of all abilities. It's great for families, beginners and experts alike.

The apartment is located just down the hill from Plagne 1800. Access to the the nearest red run piste (the Roche lift,) is by a short walk or for confident skiers by an off piste track. The free bus runs every hour up and down the mountain, so provides a twice and hour frequency service to the lifts if you do not want to ski.

If you book lessons with the Oxygene ski school a minibusis available to pick you up for lessons and drop you back afterwards.

Summer in the mountains is great fun too. There are plenty of well signposted walks and absolutely loads of mountain bike trails . July and August provide activity for all of the family with key lifts open making access to the mountains easy.
