My wife and I wanted to escape from city madness and decided to take a risk at the Alps...and it was worth it! we got a dream spot to spend a week with the nature. Our host Mr. Richard was splendid at getting us like at home. Nearby areas such as Evian are great to visit and enjoy. It was a very different experience than any of our previous vacations in Europe and one of the greatest! We highly recommend this chalet and guarantee you will have everything you wanted ;)
Prefect holiday from start to finish. Wonderfully easy start with SkiHire2U arriving at the chalet on the first evening to fit the kit that we had ordered, they also collected the kit from the excellent boot room (boot heaters, plenty of space on benches for all of us etc) after we left!
The Chalet itself manages to be both huge & cosy, great open plan living room with a roaring fire, huge dining table, great kitchen, amazing views from balcony and bedroom plus a sauna and hot tub for easing aches!
Great skiing around Plaine Dranse, loads of friendly Blues and some not unfriendly Reds though the are plenty of 'dark' Reds and more for the more adventurous. Further afield, Avoriaz, Morzine and even Switzerland easily accessible, with the ski parks @ Super Chatel definitely worth a visit. We had a couple of brilliant instructors/ guides, booked via the chalet info, catering both for a couple of beginners and some fearless teenagers!
We ate a couple of times on the mountain (though the chalet is easily close enough to head back for lunch), Chez Crepy at Plaine Dranse if definitely worth a lunch visit though Chez Babeth is a cute little lodge I liked, pretty much out of sight behind Crepy but worth finding as great little hideaway for a vin chaud!
In Chatel, restaurants Bistro M, La Poya, Genepi all excellent. La Poya not cheap but amazing food and for a group the Raclette @ Cafe Zeph should also be near the top of your 'to do' list.
Avalanche and Nasca are both fun bars for drinks with all the above an easy walk from the chalet.
