I stay at Le Grand Chalet every time I visit Courmayeur. It would be easy to write loads abut why so I've picked my top 5 reasons.
#1 - room comfort - this is a 3 star apart/hotel. The rooms are fully equipped, spotlessly clean and I always seem to sleep well. And for me - a power shower is a must.
#2 - location - as others have mentioned it's the closest you can get to the main gondola without actually sleeping in the lift station. And it's downhill on the way there!
#3 - staff welcome - everyone I came across - reception, health spa, cleaning, bar, was friendly and helpful.
#4 - ambiance - if you love your apres-ski in a lively, child-friendly, Italian run bar, favoured by local people this is for you. Spritz is my highly recommended tipple.
#5 - facilities - Aching muscles - jump in the jacuzzi. Cuppa tea - stick the room kettle on. Six nations rugby - watch on your sky TV. Even free wi-fi and boot warming storage is provided - this place shows how it should be done.
I don't drive but there's an on-site garage if you do. And it seems particularly child- friendly going by the number of families staying at the same time as me (pre half term week).
Although not on my list of reasons to stay here, the sight of Mont Blanc bathed in sunshine as I left the front door each morning just made me happy.
Thanks Marisa and team - see you next year.
