Modern recently developed chalet that comfortably fits 15-16 people. Easy to ski from/to, lots of thoughtful touches eg dressing gowns for all guests, and a great selection of utensils. Comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
The 6 of us (covering 3 generations including our 2 year old grandson) thoroughly enjoyed out stay at Chalet La Veliere in Champagny. The chalet was more spacious than many self catered places we have stayed in previously, giving ample room for us all including the youngster to play. The kitchen was well equipped for us and we were all able to enjoy separate bedrooms which although not oversized, were again more ample than some places we have stayed.
Access to skiing was also excellent. The chalet is almost on the same level as the gondola and only 2-3 minutes walk away in ski boots. The village is built on a steep slope so access from lower chalets would be more strenuous! The gondola took us directly up to the main ski slopes on the Champagny side of the La Plagne area, with ample opportunity to ski here, and also easy access over the ridge into the full La Plagne bowl. Going at New Year, with only early snow, the red runs down to the resort were not open, but to most of our party that was not an option anyway :). These were clearly being prepared though to open shortly.
Finally, the village of Champagny was a great pleasure to stay in. Although there is some development this is still a village resort with a very local feel. When you ski into Plagnne Centre or Bellecote and see the huge developments there, it is a real pleasure to return to your own village. An excellent boulangerie a short walk away provided king every morning, and my wife and I would recommend a meal at the Refuge du Bois further up the valley at the village of Champagny le Haut (very French, and very full, but not to be missed for the local food!).
All in all we would recommend this chalet to anyone. We are hoping to persude a group of friends to revisit next year!
