La Ruche is in the upper part of Plagne 1800 among lots of similar chalets. Plagne 1800 like most of the La Plagne villages is fairly quiet, with a relatively small number of bars and restaurants. The chalet rooms are a little on the small side (especially the bathrooms!). However, Ellie and Simon are really good hosts and did a... More

La plagne is without doubt a great ski resort. Its a bit on the pricey side but it is a ski resort after all, so it is to be expected. Ellie and Simon (The chalet hosts) were great. They cooked lovely food, were great company and were full of local knowledge. Something that is vital when adjusting to the resort... More

This is our second but probably last holiday with ski bug. There were some very positive aspects to our holiday. The chalet staff were excellent hard working and friendly people. Food was defiantly done on a tight budget , all of the ingredients seemed cheap , but the outstanding skills of the cook meant that the food was tasty and... More

I had a wonderful week in January at La Ruche. The hosts were so warm and friendly, the accommodation spotless, and the food was absolutely delicious. Cooked breakfast, afternoon tea and a beautiful 3 course meal each night! I couldn't have asked for any more! So much so that I booked to come back for a second week in March,... More

Just returned from Chalet La Ruche for a second year in a row and must say the service by Skibug and the very reasonable cost is the reason we have returned with them for a third consecutive year. Joe and Kim were great hosts, and as has been said before, the food was excellent. I admit the chalet is not... More

We actually stayed at another Skibug chalet on the same lane - the closest chalet to the blue slope - the Coccinelle Chalet in La Plagne. There were some good things about Ski bug - the free transfer from the airport, some ski hosting, ability to book a private nanny and the cakes in the afternoon were very good. The... More

Chalet La Ruche is a lovely chalet in a good location between Plagne Centre Plagne 1800. It is close to bus stops and there is a track at the back which allows you to ski directly from the chalet when there is enough snow. The hosts (Joe, Kim and Will) were friendly and helpful. The chalet was clean and warm... More

We stayed with ski bug in this chalet. The staff ( Joe , Kim and Will) were welcoming , cheerful and attentive. Food was generally very good indeed. Unfortunately the chalet let them and ski bug down. Kim kept the chalet clean and even cleaned the bathrooms daily. Lots of hot water, or at least when the showers were working,... More

Booked with ski bug, great communication with Elena (one of the managers) she was accommodating and helpful. Free transfer from airport is a huge plus point. (if the times fit in). The chalet is just off the main road betw een plagne 1800 and plagne centre. So you do have to be careful when walking to and from bus drop.... More

Really have to give SKibug 10 out of 10 for customer service! We had a problem with our flights and Skibug (Elena) reorganised their schedules to collect us from a different airport at v short notice! Chalet la Ruche was great - really cosy, good location and the food was fab. Paul and Becks our chalet hosts were excellent -... More
