A group of 4 of my girlfriends stayed in the Champs Avalins in the third week of March 2009. We had a fantastic time - looked forward to every meal, there was a good selection of vegetarian and meat options for dinner and the generous breakfasts and afternoon tea meant that we often went without lunch. The staff were friendly and approachable - always ready for a chat and even walked us home and made us cheese on toast after a particularly late night in town when we missed the bus!
La Daille is a great place to be - Verte is the only green that you can ski down from in Val D'Isere and with the main blues back into Val D'Isere often closed there are massive queues to get the bus back to Val D'Isere about 5pm every evening. We felt very smug watching them whilst drinking tea.
You need to get a bus to town but these are every 5 mins during the day and every 30 mins until 2.30 am. After that it's a taxi or an easy 20 mins walk.
I wouldn't recommend this hotel to families as there is a no children policy in the restaurant after 5pm.
All in all a fantastic holiday and we would definately come back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the hotel might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps, but as with all properties, it is the location that really counts! And that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the hotel, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain. ... more less
