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.

Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Apartment for a week, skiing La Plagne in March. Great week, great apartment.

We needed 3 bedrooms, which we got, (2 doubles with space, and a full size bunk room) and we also got a great view, a balcony with table outside, easy access (same level as the entry door), plenty of space, good kitchen and table, good cooker and dishwasher, free wifi, DVD player, decent TV, 2 bathrooms and a separate loo! We had no complaints on the facilities.

The apartment is new, clean, well maintained, and spacious. Plenty of hot water (just remember to boost it when going out in the morning).

The pricing for this apartment is about right. It's 40% more than our previous apartment in Les Arcs, but that was the usual 'sleeps 6ish, but feels crowded with just 3 people and getting a bit scruffy' type of place! This is sooo much nicer to stay in for a week! AND here there is no car park charge (you can't avoid the high car park charges in Les Arcs, its the whole town!), the here wifi is free, fast and unrestricted, I think we ended up with 7 or 8 devices on the wifi (including Amazon streaming) without any problems.

So how did it work out for skiing, well for us it was PERFECT! We didn't fancy the bus, (once an hour), and the walk back up to the house looked very tiring at the end of a day - We were told we could ski down to La Roche, but we weren't sure how to find our way back (we could get the bus of course but then the walk.....). Sooooo - we had the car and a top box so we put our gear on and jumped in the car every morning and rolled down to La Roche lift car park. Free parking and literally a 50m easy walk to the chair. End of the day, ski down to La Roche, take off the skiis and put them back in the top box, drive up the hill, leave the skiis and boots in the car, and walk into the apartment! Its the easiest access I've known, even beats Les Arcs where our apartment was 50m from the lift but up a steep slope with skis :(. This is far better for us! Without a car the bus would be fine as well, but a bit more work.

So whats the bad news, well only one small drawback for us, there is no bar or restaurant within sensible walking distance. No big problem, but we went out less than we did in Les Arcs.

A few notes:

-There are several Spar Shops open 7/7 so no problem even on Sunday.

-We tried La Roche restaurant, but didn't enjoy it!

-Skiset Plagne La Roche Ski Hire (under La Roche Restaurant) very convenient, and half the cost of Oxygene.

Luxurious apartment with every comfort thought of, wonderful time had by all.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment over February half term, we had loads of helpful advice from the owner before we arrived. This is a fantastic apartment very spacious , loads of room for the 6 of us.Although there is a ski run quite close it is a quite difficult one so I would highly recommend anyone needing ski lessons to use Oxygene company, they collected my daughter and husband every morning and returned them after lunch if needed. They also come to the apartment with ski equipment all for no extra cost. There is a free shuttle bus within minutes of the apartment and for me a non skier this was great for getting up and down the mountain so I could enjoy lunch / drinks with the rest of my family. If I wanted any shopping I would get it at Plagne Centre. The apartment has a slow cooker as well as an oven.There is a wide selection of dvds and games to play in the evening. Although I should not say this , this apartment is definitely under priced for the luxury you get and the photographs are all real. Very happy with this holiday

Perfect Skiing Chalet

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four adults. The apartment was extremely comfortable for us and had plenty of hot water for baths and showers at the end of the day when you need to soak those muscles. It was also very spacious which made it even more comfortable. I enjoyed cooking in the kitchen as it had a large fridge, excellent 4 ring hob and combined oven, grill, microwave. Even had a slow cooker which we used. Hot chicken casserole one night and beef casserole the next night. A little tip (Take from England the Colmans casserole sachet mix to add to your casserole. Then you just need a good splosh of wine)! The dishwasher was handy too! The apartment has a large balcony wrapping round the property. Handy to chill your wines and beer outside when its cold!

We used the free bus to get up to La Plagne Centre or Plagne Aimee 2000. There is a red run from the apartment down to a lift but my husband said it was a narrow path leading to a steep red run. So if you are a beginner or not very confident I would suggest taking the bus like we did! There are plenty of runs for beginners and intermediate skiers. I think we skied most of them! We were very lucky as the week before we arrived they had a big down pour of fresh snow. Then the sun shone all week we were there, which was perfect. It was half term week and the queues were long but they moved fast.

One night we went to the outdoor Magic Pool at Bellecote. It is well heated and great fun to be swimming outside looking at the snow in the steam. You can have a sauna too but it is extra. Cleaners were cleaning the cubicles and corridors which was good to see. Then pop into one of the Bars for a Vin Chaud or a beer!!

We had an excellent meal at La Refuge in Plagne Centre. Not expensive! My husband and I had the fixed price menu at 25euros and the others had steak, risotto and chocolate brownie sauce pudding. Make sure you reserve a table well in advance.

At La Plagne 1800 there is a handy Spar shop were you can park bang outside and buy your croissant, pain au chocolat and baguettes. etc

I would highly recommend this very comfortable apartment. Thank you Helen and Ben. xx

Fantastic apartment with great views.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at Crete Cote. The apartment is conveniently located with superb views across the valley.

The accommodation is clean, comfortable and well equipped.There was plenty of hot water and having two bathrooms was a bonus. The kitchen has all you need for self catering.

The ski area is superb with plenty of choice. The ski lifts are only a short distance away by car or free ski bus.

Lovely apartment, good location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very good week at Crete Cote, skiing and snowboarding the whole Paradiski area. We were four adults; 3 skiers and one boarder. The car journey up from Crete Cote to La Plagne centre was just a few minutes and we parked there most days - not only was it close to the lifts, but also the Spar and a very good boulangerie/patisserie! The days we skied over at Les Arcs, we parked at Bellecote, which saved some time in getting to the Telepherique Vanoise Express that crosses the valley between the two areas. We had some very good lunches at La Vache Rouge in La Plagne, just down from the Colorado chairlift.

The apartment was very clean, well-equipped and comfortably furnished throughout. Being on the ground floor, we didn't have to tackle stairs when we came back with weary legs - always a bonus! My son (the boarder,) made his own way back each evening, boarding all the way into Crete Cote with just a short walk to the apartment.

Many thanks to Helen and Kate, who were really helpful when we had any questions, both before and during our stay. We really our enjoyed our week and will definitely be back.

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.
