From the first contact with the proprieters we were impressed by their willingness to assist us in planning and booking our family skiing holiday.On arrival we weren't disappointed as Eddy and Debbie turned out to be perfect hosts, accompanying us to the ski hire shop,ski school and gondola to smooth the process while also giving us tips on locker hire, local geography and reccommending local restaurants to suit both taste and pocket.
The Alpina Chalet itself is ideally suited within 5 mins walk to the lockers/chairlift. Both rooms were en-suite, immaculate and serviced on a daily basis.The beds were extremely comfortable and the rooms always warm and 'toasty'. Breakfast was continental style with a variety of juices, meats, pastries, cereals and yogurts with teas/coffee/hot chocolate etc. The dry room is an excellent idea as are the use of 'crocs' as the common lounge area was always neat and dry, ideal for use of the free wifi. This common area also lends itself to a great informal gathering in the evening as guests exchange stories over a beer and friendships are formed in the planning of the next days adventures.
Our kids(14,11,8) loved this time as it gave them an ideal 'down time' before heading out to dinner. Suffice to say that they have rated this as the best of their three ski trips and have already (2 days) expressed the desire that if we go again they want to return to Chalet Alpina!
La Thuile offered ample variety in the skiing available both in the geography of the pistes and the technical difficulty. The children loved the ski school which offered excellent tuition in Italian and English. Eddy was always available to offer his insight on the following days exploits bearing in mind forecasted weather and predicted crowds. This was a valuable tool and was complimented by Debbies insight into the local hostelries and shopping which ensured a smooth trouble free holiday(which when you are travelling with kids is a godsend)
In conclusion I would have no hesitation in reccommending Chalet Alpina, delight in the friendships that we made and look forward to someday returning to this little piece of paradise
