“Great Chalet - Excellent food!”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

Just spent a week with Kyle and Gabby in Chalet Sophie, one of Alpine Escapes Chalets in La Tania, Courchevel. The food and hosts were excellent plus the out door hot tub and open bar were the icing on the cake. The meals were of (a very good) restaurant standard and the hosts couldn't do enough for us - all and all a really nice, relaxing, comfortable place to stay with close proximity to the slopes (just at the back of the Chalet so ski in and out).

I can not recommend this place enough!

This was our first family ski holiday and my 40th birthday celebration. We have travelled a great deal and by far Alpine Escape offered us the best quality service we have experienced. The food prepared by Mike was exceptional - fabulous host. Alpine escape truly gave us the best ski holiday. Wine selection was first class. We have talked about this holiday none stop and have some fabulous memories. Thank you so much. Ps - thanks to Neil for saving us from a very snowy Coucheval and to Jo for being on hand and guiding us through our first ski holiday. We will be back........

If you want to stay at any in La Tania then Alpine Escapes Chalets are the best.
Stayed at Elegani last year and this and was delighted with every aspect of he service, from the quality of the food, the attentiveness of the hosts and the professionalism of Jo and Neil who run it.

Shhhhh...keep this place quiet, very selfish....

Another awesome break in La Tania. Back to Chalet Johanna this time. Mike is a superb chef, i cant imagine many chalets having restaurant quality chefs the quality of he. Pork belly and then rolled lamb right up there....if only his ability of jumping off kickers was as good....

Hostess Bobby's dilligence knew no bounds and was good fun around the chalet. Awesome weather, if a little cold, but thats being fussy.

I still think La Tania is one of the best resorts in the world. It accesses some of the best skiing around, without the prices and graces of courcheval, or the of britshness of Meribel.

These guys are a notch or 2 up from your usual chalet holiday with great care taken with service, food and wine.

Room Tip: Its a charming wooden chalet. so some noise around. best rooms are in the basement but you cant real...

Just got back from Chalet Pleroma. Hosts David and Heather were wonderful, helpful, friendly and very welcoming. Their food was second to none - the quality of a very good restaurant - and the menu choice for the week was excellent. Wines were well selected and plentiful.
The chalet, which has beautiful panoramic views over La Tania and across the valley, was well maintained and spotlessly spotlessly clean throughout the week. There was a hot tub with a nice view over the mountains, which was very welcome after a hard day skiing. The chalet is a 30 metre walk to either a red or green run, though the Alpine Escape team were at hand with their Land Rover if we needed a lift into the town centre (10/15 min walk), or a pick up at the end of the day. I have been skiing for 30 years and this was my most enjoyable chalet experience. I would definitely recommend Alpine Escapes.

We had a wonderful week in Chalet Elangeni in January 2012. Our hosts were great and the food was fantastic. We took our 6 month old daughter and the chalet hosts were great helping us to make the stay as easy as possible. Jo and Neil at Alpine Escape arranged for baby supplies to be waiting for us as well as some toys and a high chair/cot. Jo recommended Helen, a qualified nanny, to look after our daughter whilst we were skiing. Helen was great and we had no anxiety leaving our baby in her care. James, the chef, took time to prepare puree for our daughter which was very helpful. Ski passes were waiting in the chalet for us as promised. Rooms are not large but this is in keeping with all the other chalets we have stayed in - we also had a cot taking up some room. Elangeni is a stone chalet and as such there is much less noise transmission making the chalet a lot more soundproof than most others. You can ski to within 20m of the chalet on a blue run (Folyeres). We would recommend Alpine Escape and Chalet Elangeni wholeheartedly.

I've just got back from a fabulous week in Chalet Johanna. Mike, our chef, was superb. The food was easily restaurant standard - Mike's care and attention made the week a success, such as a variety of homemade chutneys to compliment the cheese course and fantastic presentation/taste combinations in every course. Bobby, our chalet host, always had a smile on her face and the rooms were spotless and thoughtfully looked after each day. The chalet itself has a lovely communal area, free wifi, jacuzzi with spectacular sunset views and an open fire.

Alpine Escape's other staff took time to make sure the week was a success. Jo's organisation of transfers and lift passes made our arrival/departure effortless and Pete, our ski host, was a fantastic source of local knowledge.

Thank you for such a lovely week - I wouldn't be surprised if Alpine Escape had even organised the blue sky and perfect snow conditions we had!
