A little nervous to book into Chalet Jean Blanc with the only review on Trip Advisor being less than satisfactory from 3 years ago – but we took a gamble and were pleasantly surprised. As a group of 5 friends – We could not have found a more convenient and comfortable place to stay. The lifts are only 20m away from the chalet and the views from any bedroom/lounge is magnificent. All rooms are almost identical each with its own “bathroom” and there are 2 separate toilets for the chalet, which was not a problem as we were one group.
The décor and bathrooms are definitely outdated and could do with a spruce up, but without this, we can still confirm the accommodation as being above average. Wi Fi was a real winner for all us facebook loving South Africans, Just a pity Ski Total could not have some DVDs to use/rent for those lazy evenings. Travelling such long distances with limited baggage allowance , would mean that a hairdryer in the chalet would also be more than welcomed.
Disappointing that none of the staff could give any real value info on the area and key places to go/be at, and a general info pack on personal experience where to go would be great. Our Chalet Girl was very new but she did a great job at making us feel comfortable and accommodating our fussy food requests. Wine is included with the meals but ice and Beer are not, which is extremely disappointing for the guys..... We all agree, if we went back to Courchevel – We would request Chalet Jean Blanc again
