“At least 5 stars!”
Reviewed April 12, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Les Coches was much nicer than bits of the Paradiski area I’d been to before: easy to get to by train, close to the cable car to Les Arcs so you can get there ahead of any morning rush (and come back later), and a nice village rather than an ugly ski resort.

Chalet Chamois was comfortable and kept in really good condition. The rooms aren’t large but they’re perfectly adequate (especially after we’d moved the furniture around a bit in the smallest twin) and all en-suite. The lounge is cosy with the log fire every day, the dining room light in the mornings and with plenty of space for everyone round the table (not like some chalets), and the hot tub outside had a truly amazing view.

Ski-in / ski-out wasn’t quite on the cards because the snow was pretty thin on the ground when we were there, but even so it was only a 20 metre walk to a (slightly treacherous) piste or the in-house driver was very happy to drive people to/from the village’s main lift.

The hosts were fantastic all week and really made the holiday. The food was excellent with almost every meal a highlight (and the best banoffee pie I’ve ever eaten!), even while catering for several different dietary requirements, and with afternoon cakes, occasional canapes, three courses and cheese we were completely spoiled.

Nothing was too much trouble. The hosts catered for special requests for breakfast, provided a packed lunch for the train home, arranged lift passes, transfers, ski equipment, massages (!) and seemingly anything else we wanted – topping it all off with a last-minute dash to bring a forgotten passport to Bourg-St-Maurice in time for the train.

Thank you Duncan, Toorna, Andy and Phil – I can’t recommend you enough!

“Great food, lovely location. made very welcome!”
Reviewed March 30, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We recently had a fabulous ski trip in Les Coches. Luckily for us we were blessed with glorious sunshine, after recent snow, so initially we had perfect conditions. We were collected from the station by Matt, who was on hand to transport us each day to and from Les Coches if we didn't want to brave the ski in and ski out option across the meadow from the piste. This is a really nice service. He was also playing in a local band on Wednesday evening in Les Coches, which was great fun. The Chalet is very pretty and cosy. The rooms are quite small and the shower rooms petit, there was more room in the bathrooms for those who had them. The beds are equally compact, especially for my 6 foot partner, who hates twin bed with single duvets and the gutless square pillows! That is Europe for you, so we accept this limiting factor as part of the package. Otherwise everything we needed was available. The food was plentiful and delicious and the wine was also very nice. Duncan and Toorna were very attentive and popped in to make sure everything was ok. The ski hire company that others were using appeared to be using poor quality skis, so the local ski shop in Les Coches would be a better bet. Pat and I would really recommend Duncan and Toorna's catered chalets to anyone who enjoys this kind of holiday. It is good value for money and a wonderful experience.

“Excellent Chalet, superb location, fantastic food”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Don't go to this chalet, I don't want you blocking us out!
Seriously though at first glance it looks a little remote but it's excellent.
If you want extensive apres-ski and parties it's maybe not the place for you. However, Les Coches has a few bars and restaurants a short walk away (mind you it's up-hill back to the chalet)
Location
If you've come to ski/board, it's brilliant because:-
- It's literally yards from a piste that takes you down to the main lift of Les Coches (true ski-in, ski-out)
- It central to the massive Paradiski area so easy to go to Les Arcs or La Plagne
- Very close to the Vanoisse Express
- Lot's of good blues and reds through trees without leaving the immediate area
- A few lovely bar/restaurants "just up the slope" for a refreshing beer on the way home
- The hot tub overlooks the piste. One night we watched the light procession from the hot tub.
- Not served by the major transfer buses but the chalet will pick you up from Aime for a very reasonable fee to cover fuel

The Chalet
Comfortable rooms set on 3 levels. Bathrooms were clean and spacious and we were supplied with towels and dressing gowns - ideal for hot-tub!
The lowest floor has the boot room (with boot warmer) and exit to the hot tub and piste.
The dining area is very sociable and all guests agreed never to use the same chair twice which was a great way to get to know each other. Although it depends on who the guests are but the social atmosphere and chalet service brought us together and we met up on the slope a few times and ate out together on "feed yourself Wednesday"
The food and wine - superb, varied and plentiful. Best I've had in a chalet and certainly benefits from a professional chef

Would I go here again - oh yes, definitely. However, we have many more places in the Alps to explore so not returning straightaway. This is not a reflection on Toorna, Duncan and their team - it's just the way we do our ski trips.

Would DEFINITELY recommend this chalet.

Any criticisms?
- The stairs could be a challenge for anyone with mobility constraints
- Could be a little remote for people who want the Apres-Ski of a large resort but we go for the mountains and snow so perfect for us.

“Great Ski Chalet with fantastic service from Alpine365”
Reviewed March 8, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Chalet Chamois is an excellent ski in/out chalet for 8 on the edge of the 'Coches' Piste just above village of Les Coches in the La Plagne ski area and is well placed for accessing the Vanois Express lift linking La Plagne to the Les Arcs / Plan Peisey & Valandry part of the vast Paradski ski area.

The chalet is charming, in a great location for appreciating and accessing the alpine surroundings. It's very comfortable and well appointed with all the expected facilities and in addition it has a well placed hot tub, with a great view, which is a great way to relax after skiing. Chamois is slightly larger than the average Ski chalet I have experienced and for me an extra bit of space does makes quite a bit of difference.

Toorna and the Alpine365 team did all they could to ensure we had a great ski holiday, they all worked to high standards and worked to deliver an excellent service. This commitment was apparent throughout e.g. in the help I had in arranging the necessary skiing extras (lessons, transfers, ski hire etc) beforehand, the quality of the food and wine in chalet, and in the way we were looked after by our in-chalet hosts Andrew and Phillip.

All in all, it was an excellent holiday, and the experience of booking with Alpine365 and staying in Chalet Chamois is definitely in my top three of what is almost 30 years of skiing. The excellent reviews we read here on Trip Advisor were part of the reason we booked this holiday and we were not disappointed.

Thank you.

“Fantastic food, brilliant location and friendly helpful staff”
Reviewed February 13, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Chalet Chamois is located perfectly for skiing and a steep walk to town is only 5-10minutes, there is always a lift if required, except later at night, however there is no need to venture into town as everything you need is catered for. We cannot fault the team who busied themselves to look after us , all the meals are of an excellent standard and the hosting equals this. The rooms are comfy and warm , the hot tub is ready to greet tired and weary ski legs, followed by delicious cake and afternoon tea ! Nothing is too much trouble and we could not fault Duncan and his team who are all happy to answer questions and sort problems. This was our second time here and we will definitely return. Thank you for a brilliant week. Paul & Nicky

A nice cosy chalet in a good location. Can ski in and out (when there is snow). 10 minutes walking down the hill to the town centre. Ski&boot room. Lifts to the lifts when needed. Friendly staff and great food. Everything that one needs for a good intense skiing holiday.
