Wonderful week at La Cabine

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five (2 adults and 3 kids aged 8-14) and have just had a fantastic week staying at La Cabine which is just below Plagne 1800. The chalet is extremely comfortable and very well laid out with beautiful views of the mountains across the valley. We drove to the chalet and brought some food with us however there is there is a well stocked Spar convenience store in Plagne 1800 and also Plagne Centre. As previously reviews have mentioned, it is not really practical to walk up to Plagne 1800 (especially if carrying ski gear) although there is an hourly free bus service from the chalet up to Plagne 1800 and Plagne Centre. The snow was fantastic during our stay

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fantastic, spacious and warm with beautiful views; well equipped kitchen and very good sized bathrooms in a quiet location. The free bus service that stopped at Crete Cote at the bottom of the road up to the apartment block ran to time and wasn’t too crowded whilst we were there late (January early February). The path that can be skied down in the morning to get to La Roche slope starts from behind the stop sign next to the bus stop. We didn’t manage to locate the option to ski back to the apartment but found skiing down to La Roche chair and walking up to the bus stop (a couple of mins) then catching the bus up to Crete Cote the most straight forward way to get home.

Home from Home

This was our second visit to La Cabine , we first came in January 2017. It was great to be back and felt like coming home. Everything is very comfortable and welcoming. We thought the snow conditions last year were good but this year there was even more snow, not quite so much sun although we did see some. This really is a great resort for all levels of skiing and even though we lost one day skiing due to blizzard conditions we were able to make the most of our holiday and that day snuggled into La Cabine with board games and DVD's to watch. We did take some of these with us but there are a good selection of both already at La Cabine. Is there anything that these owners have not thought of to make the experience staying at La Cabine more comfortable - we can't think of anything!

Whilst there may have been blizzard conditions, the snow ploughs were out and kept the roads clear even clearing snow each day on the access from the main road up to La Cabine. The ski shuttle buses that run every hour continued to run all week and generally on time.

A mention also for the boot/ ski hire, Sport 2000 in Plagne Centre that was recommended by the owners ( see discount vouchers in La Cabine). They were extremely helpful and looked after us very well, we used them last year too. This year they have an English girl working with them, she was a great help as she speaks fluent French as well as English and was a good addition to their team. That having been said the whole team are very accommodating.

La Cabine is so well equipped that we like to eat in some of the evenings and it is easy to prepare a meal as everything is there, the slow cooker is a great idea. We just pick up provisions on our way back from skiing from one of the many shops in Plagne Centre.

For Apres Ski we like to visit Christof and his wife in L'Avalanche Bar for a vin chaud, beer or hot chocolate and on our last evening we also returned to eat there. Super meal of steak and chicken cooked on 'hot stones' with all the trimmings, delicious, great deserts too.

Anyway, back to La Cabine and a great big thank you to the Killners for letting us share their property, we look forward to being back there soon.

Well appointed , well managed chalet

  • 5 of 5

This is a great value chalet which is close to all amenities. We spent New Year there as 2 adults and 4 older teenagers.

Whilst not easily ski in/out - if you are an able skier then a short narrow track down to the bottom of the red run to the La Roche ski lift does massively ease your entry to the slopes in the morning.

Whilst skiing back is a leap of faith down a track from a car park at the back of La PLagne 1800.

Taking the bus is far less stressful, if not as convenient as they are currently scheduled every hour.

Having said that the storage "cave" for ski equipment was good - the owners have conceded airing out the ski boots and equipment in/around the chalet by providing some drip trays for you to use.

The accommodation was fine for the six of us. Beds were very comfortable and the two bathrooms didn't run out of hot water - remember to set the hot water again before you leave in the morning.

We couldn't have asked for more catering equipment. The cooker was a little challenging to get used to but once mastered. - very efficient.

The teenagers found the wifi very good.

Kate from Piste Pads was super in arranging ski passes and a good source of local information too.

Helen, the owner, was super in email correspondence and in tolerating all our questions beforehand.

The views from the balcony were wonderfully Alpine. Indeed in the summer I bet it makes a fantastic place to eat and then explore the surrounds from.

Thanks for a very enjoyable stay here.

Location

it would be advisable to buy your groceries on the day of arrival in the supermarkets in the valley.

During the winter season there are several parking places on the way up to La Plagne for you to fit your snow chains. Please remember to practice putting them on before you leave home and have the correct type of gloves to wear to help you do this in the snow. Please also refer to the current road regulations whilst driving in France to identify what items you must have in your vehicle.
