Jonny and Sammy the chalet hosts made this holiday for us with their friendly attitude, hard work and great food. The chalet is well located and the communal lounge spacious and comfortable. However, there is no denying that the rooms are basic and claustrophobic, some more than others. These mezzanines are French architecture gone crazy and would not be acceptable in the UK. We felt like we were staying in a cross between the cupboard under the stairs and the garden shed! The pillows deserve a mention too as they were the topic of conversation amongst us all every breakfast - very flat and unsatisfactory. Such a simple thing to improve on.
I would advise to only book lift passes in advance if they are discounted as mistakes are often made with either the wrong pass being issued or even none at all!
There needs to be a policy around single room supplements as one of our group paid a hefty one only to find that another single person in the chalet wasn't charged one at all, even though both bookings were made at the same time.
Grenoble airport is very chaotic and clearly not geared up for the volume of skiers that it tries to accommodate. Our transfer from the airport to La Plagne was without a rep and we were directing the driver who didn't know where she was going!
Our saving grace was that we didn't pay full price for this holiday. Had I done so I would have been more than a little disappointed. My overall impression is that Ski France are a bit shoddy.
