Stayed with Dave and Caz at the end of Jan 2013 and I was totally amazed with how good this whole setup is. Would definitely go again. Most of the people there at the same time as us were return customers. This ski trip was with a couple friends, but I also ski with whole family, big groups and sometimes go with just me and my boys. This chalet would suit all of those style holidays.
Location for skiing: walk to the first lift for a good warm-up, or just take Dave's offer of a lift to the lobster pots - which is just one of the extra services that makes this a great place to stay (a must if you've got little ones!) You are then right at the Vanoise Express. It is just as easy to ski Les Arcs or la Plagne, and the express crossing is so quick you can switch between the two resorts easily. Check the weather / conditions and decide whether to go one way or the other. Therefore, worth considering the full discovery lift pass, although Les Arcs on its own is a great place to board or ski, with plenty of runs above, between and through the trees!
Accommodation and food: OK, difficult to add to what has already been said before. Accommodation is immaculate, spacious, comfortable, with warm equipment room to dry everything out overnight...etc. The food is like eating in a restaurant. I bet you haven't had better on the slopes anywhere, at any price!
Equipment Hire: Dave and Caz recommended rental republic ski hire service which I used for a couple days during the week to try out some new skis. Caz just handed me the phone having dialed for me (it was 7pm) and skis turned up before breakfast the next morning ready for first lifts. They came and collected them just as easily from the chalet at the end hire period. The equipment was top notch. Definitely check that service out!
Picturesque setting: Doesn't always feature high on my list of requirements but set in the old part of Peisey village, so very quiet and surrounded by nice buildings - no concrete apartment blocks here! If you're looking for big apres ski sessions you probably want to go somewhere else (please!)
Anything else: Dave and Caz will do anything to help. Just ask them. Great, friendly, informed advice for everything. Thanks guys.
