Our Chalet is located in Courchevel Le Praz which has a good selection of bars and restaurants, a true Savoyard village which is the prettiest of the four Courchevel villages with a quaint village square, traditional chalets and narrow cobbled streets. The chalet itself has exceptional outside space with unique views of the Olympic ski jumps and slopes and its own private garden space which includes entertaining area and large, private jacuzzi. It offers exceptional door to door skiing (via 'Jockeys') and bus services run frequently to the rest of the resort. The apartment itself is a mix of contemporary styling with traditional themes, a truly alpine masterpiece.
This place is really beautiful inside and out with fabulous facilities and the location was stunning.
We have rented several places in the three valleys some more expensive than this but this chalet was beautiful. The layout of the place is really open plan in the dining/ living area and the interior styling and furnishings are more akin to an expensive boutique hotel than a privately owned chalet.
We loved the fact that the terrace is perfectly placed to enjoy the views of the ski jump as well as the village and lake and the hot tub was a fantastic facility and we sat out in it during the day and enjoyed the fresh air and views.
The chalet is a 2 minute walk to the centre of the village and the lake as well as being well placed for walks either down through the village or up to La Tania or across to Mirabel Village depending on your appetite for distance.
I don't usually write reviews but we had such a lovely holiday in that I felt I should make the effort.
Thanks for an amazing holiday
Hmm, very mixed review on the property.
Initially good contact with the owners when enquiring and asking for details, but once we decided to book and pay, it seemed impossible to contact the owners, I must have emailed 6 or 7 times on top of phone calls and messages. I wasn't exactly sure of the reason, but when we finally got in contact they were very apologetic, and I was grateful for that.
On arrival to the chalet we discovered that no keys had been left in the key locker for us to get in (quite a difficult thing to comprehend that hadn't been checked prior to us getting there) we called a local friend of the owner and she arrived quite quickly to let us in as it was snowing heavily at this point. Unfortunately we were only given a key to the side entrance (ski locker was through a different door) so we had to walk around the building each morning to use the locker (a key was found around midweek so we could use the ski locker easily).
Secondly after booking and paying for the use of the Jacuzzi, we found it packed away and secured, after speaking to the owner (he thought we didn't book it, again another thing which could have been checked before we got there). Included in the price of the Jacuzzi was someone to come and clean it during our stay, this person was not available whilst we were there so left to do it ourselves, not the end of the world but annoying as we had paid for this service. The door handle to the patio was a little loose and actually came off at one point but we put it back on and were careful with it for the rest of the week,
After all of this was done, we could step back and enjoy a beautiful chalet, decoration and feel was great, location was perfect and the ski area spot on. Local shops and services provided everything you need.
The wifi was massively intermittent we were a little bored on our as the TV system wasn't explained.
When the trip was finished we were sorry to be leaving, even sorrier when I wasn't contacted after we left in regards to the security deposit. I left it 2 weeks before getting in contact (again a couple of emails and phone calls required, to be told there was a problem with the deposit. Kerri didn't know the details so she said Chris would contact me to let me know, it has been 2 months now, I have emailed 3 times and called twice, my deposit is nowhere to be seen.
Like I said "Ups and Downs", the chalet is great, the location is great, the other bits....slightly disappointing to shockingly bad.
