A group of five of us stayed at Chalet Edelweiss this last week (wc 12th Jan) in the eight person apartment. As previous reviewers have said, booking an apartment with a bit of space (i.e. four people, book a six bed, five people eight bed etc) means you have a bit more comfort/space. You could fit eight people in there, but it'd be a squeeze with adults especially if there are no couples as it'd require sharing double beds! Our transfer arrived just after 12pm where reception had closed until 5pm...We were surprised the tour operator seemed surprised by this, but the staff said we were welcome to leave our luggage and make the most of the half day lift pass. We collected the passes from the v.convenient office opposite reception, and then our hire skis from the equally convenient Sport 2000 (via a beer at Bobsleigh Pub as the hire shop was closed until 1:30pm) and made our way down the slope 30m to the Melezes chairlift and onwards up Bergerie to the rest of the resort. The apartment was nicely finished, with a few bits of wear and tear noticed. Make sure to fill out the checklist of items and report any issues by Monday. We took bits and pieces with us to help with cooking on the hob, such as a grater, sharp knives, extra chopping board etc as well as some cleaning products (there's a dishwasher so remember tablets). When it came to cleaning up on the Friday before we left we went to Spar (about a 10 minute walk away) and got some extra cleaning products to do the floors and bathrooms etc. We loaded up on food at Spar in the village and cooked in two big batches which sorted us out for the whole week, with a couple of nights out at the very excellent Cantine restaurant and pizza at the Bobsleigh pub (which does takeaway too!). The Spar was about what you'd expect price wise, but c'est la vie! Bedrooms were comfy...we drew straws to decide who got the double (I lost) but the twin was absolutely ideal for two grown men and the bathroom was nicely done out - although the shower's sliding door was a little snug for a big bloke like me! The location is literally incredible...Sure it might not have the most restaurants/bars in the village, but it takes about 2 minutes walk to get to the lift pass collection point, the nearest hire shop, the nearest pub and the first lift of the day. La Plagne 1800 is small but perfectly formed in that respect. La Plagne Centre has more shops and bars/restaurants, but does require a ski back down the hill to the bottom of Melezes via either a simple enough Red or a windy (and a tad icy) blue that brings you out a little further away - so bear that in mind when making evening plans. Other bonuses of the location include the free resort shuttle bus which stops directly outside Chalet Edelweiss...Again, I can't fault the location at all! The staff in reception were helpful, informative and very polite. We ordered fresh bread and pastries every evening before 7pm for collection the next day at 8am and they were delicious and a godsend to five sleepy guys! It was a good mix of families and groups of friends, with no massive parties that I could hear (most of that was confined to the excellent La Mine pub just down the hill!) and there seemed to be plenty of bookings. If I came back to La Plagne I would definitely book at Edelweiis again. It was my first experience of self catered after four catered holidays and it worked perfectly well.

We booked a 6 person (two bedroom = twin plus double) appartment for our family of four. Compared to similar (cheapish) two bedroom accommodation in Les Menuires, it was a bit larger, the two bathrooms (though only one toilet) were a bonus, it was nicely decorated (to our taste!) and felt relatively roomy, although as with other similar places, 6 people would be a challenge! On the downside, there is no free wifi (much to kids dismay!), the TV was a basic analogue with digibox and I suspect that due to its location and orientation quite a bit of the accommodation has very limited views of the slopes / mountains / village. The view from our ground floor accommodation, while not feeling dark, was mainly of a steep snow bank and chairs on the nearby chairlift. The accommodation was right next to the piste but La Plagne 1800 has a few drawbacks. To get to the main ski areas requires two lifts that I imagine would be annoying in busy periods with lift queues. There is only one supermarket which appeared quite expensive compared to similar ski resort supermarkets elsewhere, possibly due to their monopoly in this area. Eating out is also extremely limited with only one restaurant and two bars that serve food within a 5-10 minute walk. Possibly, La Plagne Centre had more choice but it was not clear how frequent the buses ran and would have been a bit of trek. La Plagne as a ski resort has some lovely intermediate runs, particularly when snow is good to the lower levels, and with a full area lift pass, visiting Les Arcs will keep most fully occupied. However, Les Arc to La Plagne 1800 requires a minimum of 5 lifts (starting with the Vanoise cable car) and therefore even competent skiers should allow an hour (without queues) to get back. It was also not clear whether the resort was being 'over-cautious' or simply 'lazy' in getting runs safe such that after a modest fall of snow a large number of black runs and quite a few reds were 'shut' and the glacier was out of action for the rest of the week. Furthermore, at the same time two good 'reds' were taken out of action, several days in advance of a resort competition. Overall, if you want good value accommodation, enjoy mainly cruising on blue runs with a few reds thrown in, enjoy doing lots of different runs each day and are not looking to eat out in the evening then La Plagne 1800 and Edelweiss may suit. However, if you want some nightlife, getting to the top of the mountain (or Les Arcs) quickly, or views, perhaps try elsewhere.

This is a self catering apartment block, not a hotel. It's in France so the usual French self catering rules apply: book a 6 person place for 4 of you, a 7 bed for 5 etc. There will not be an oven. You will need to make up the beds. The reception will not be open 24 hours. They do not provide a 'welcome pack' as is common in the U.K. But we knew all this, so had a comfortable apartment with plenty of heating, plates & mugs etc, kettle and toaster and microwave and hob, warm bedding, a ski locker, a swimming pool and a balcony overlooking the slopes. Genuinely ski in ski out. Clean, warm, convenient and comfortable.

We just returned from a week's skiing holiday in La Plagne 1800 staying at Lagrange Prestige Residence Les Chalets D'Edelweiss. We stayed here last year and booked it after enjoying our stay in 2017. This year the apartments are showing a lot of wear and are needing some attention. The pillows were stained and rather disgusting and this was quite off putting to start with. The sofa bed in the sitting room had some if its top layer missing and was covered up with a throw. The door was hanging off one of the cupboards and we did not have a kettle for the entire stay despite asking repeatedly for it. We felt that there was a huge difference in the standard from the previous year. Yes, it is in a prime position and that was very nice but I think we will be going somewhere else as it is very expensive and not worth the money any more. Our tv only showed the winter olympics in German and there was one English news channel. The apartment next door had a much better system and many more channels. We have been disappointed this year as the apartment was obviously not checked before we arrived. Three lights were needing replacement bulbs which we had to ask for. They were replaced. There were a lot of glasses and plates that were missing too. They were not replaced. I do not expect to use my holiday time chasing up missing items in an apartment that I have paid for.

Just back from a weeks holiday. Booked a two bedroom apartment that sleeps up to 6. Thank goodness there was only three of us. Quite small. Very uncomfortable beds. We had to make up beds ourselves. The pillows were dirty and stained. The toilets in separate room from bathroom. No oven just hob and microwave. There is a coffee maker, kettle and toaster. Only two uses of steam room allowed per apartment but you have to book which is ridiculous. The reception was only open at infrequent hours. The pool is small, dark and dingy and the showers are cold water showers. Noisy throughout the night as they clear snow from roads etc. Noise from the floor above and next door as thin walls. We paid a fair bit for this apartment and it felt like we were living in a caravan. Television was all in French. Not even BBC world news. The lifts for skiing were closed on two days and there wasn’t much to do. No Gym facilities. Also we used Voyage Prive to book. No one told us that if you arrive after 8pm you don’t get in! As a result we will not visit this property again.

The 6-8 appartement is large enough for 4. Unlike the “walls” of apartments the French trend to like, this is A block of appartements around a small 5x8 indoor pool. Giving it a cosy “coin” feeling. Ski locker provided, but located outside the appartment. Elevators brake down. Who cares... Facilities in te appartment are good. Beds a bit small, hard, but after two days of ski any bed will do. Wifi is supposed to be free, but is crap. Pay for it and you’ll get a little less crappy Wifi. Breaking up all the time and extremely slow. You’d expect more from €35 a week. Kids’ agony. Unreal this is still an issue in 2017... Lost connection three times white writing this review. The Plagne 1800 area is not entertaining at all, unless you like local French bars. “La Mine” is nice, though, serving a great assortment of beers. Live music too. Very small, cosy. For the rest: A couple of pubs where you can order crappy bar food. Go to the restaurants for better dining. Nothing very special though. Apres ski is miles away! The ski lift is 25 meters away and will get you to the center of La Plagne in 10 minutes. Great for families who like to take lunch at home, or like a break. If you come here to ski... go. If you come to have a good apres ski, don’t. It is still France. La Plagne area is one of the greatest areas to ski in. That’s why we went and will go again. Maybe some other “ residence”.

We stayed here in March 2017. The location of the apartments is excellent, with a bus stop right outside (free bus) and chairlift at other entrance. The apartments are small, but nice. We got one that sleeps 6 for the 4 of us and it was fine. We had a lovely big balcony. The bakery service was great. You take an inventory when you arrive which is a 5 min job, and clean when you leave (take some cleaning wipes with you) and a quick wipe down and hoover and its done, again not a big problem. I'd recommend taking things like wipes, and dishwasher tablets and anything else you can fit in case as local shop quite expensive if you have to buy everything. Staff were nice and very helpful.

The Location is superb the flat had a great mountain view the kitchen has no oven so you have to manage with a hob and microwave/gril A lot of paperwork to fill in regarding inventory etc, I can only assume the company has had bad experiences of missing items, but overall I would recommend a stay as the convenience of location for a ski holiday completely out weighs any small niggles didn't use the pool or sauna as it was rammed every night not a criticism just not to keen to use this type of facility when its that busy We had heavy snowfall the week we stayed and I appreciated the underground car parking although an extra dollar it was definitely worth it as some folk spent half a day digging their cars out Reception staff were very friendly and helpful We arrived poorly prepared for self catering but there was no need to panic as just 200m up the road was a excellently stocked Spar

We stayed here in January 2016. Bus stops right outside which is perfect for travelling between Plagne Centre and Plagne Bellecote. The apartments were always very warm and had a nice cosy feel. Our apartment was directly above reception so we had fast free wifi all of the time. The master bedroom was massive, bigger than the living area, the second bedroom was very tiny. Very hard to navigate on crutches! Decor was nice and modern, and the apartment felt clean, we didn't pay for the cleaning service so had to clean it ourselves the night before we left. If we ever go back to La Plagne I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Only reason I wouldn't give it 5/5 is the strange sizing layout of the apartment.

OK so we get how it works in France. We've stayed self catered for years in various size apartments, in various French ski resorts. We know self catered means you get a room, you cook, you clean, you make your own beds and you buy your own toilet rolls. And also the apartments are much smaller than you would like. Apartments for 4 are best for 2, apartments for 6 are best for 4 and so on. But Chalets Les Edelweiss were lovely, they get a lot of bad reviews for all of the above, but really these are lovely apartments and very good value for money! My mum booked a one bedroom apartment which the staff here very kindly arranged to be next door to us. We booked the duplex apartment sleeping up to 8 people for our group of 5 adults and one child (3 single people, one couple and child) and the size was just right for us. Although one person slept on the sofa bed, we each had our own separate space. There were enough chairs for everyone, cups and glasses etc. Cooking our own meals was rather crowded in the small kitchen area/worktop space, and frustratingly a dishwasher is always present but not an oven. But again, if this is how the French do it, then that's fine with me. Our duplex was in the eaves so we had very little room height in the bedrooms - my husband is very tall so banged his head a few times, but we were there for the skiing and this was fantastic. The ski in ski out is brilliant, you're on the doorstep to one of the largest ski areas in the world, and we loved it! We just can't wait to book here for next year and hopefully requesting the same rooms too, Thank you Les Chalets Edelweiss!
