“Home from home, in a winter wonderland!”
Reviewed March 7, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We travelled to Montchavin as part of a group of 4 families at February half-term. We had been looking forward to the holiday for ages, and we're not disappointed!
Lee and Kevin were the perfect hosts, with useful help and advice before we travelled, and a warm and friendly welcome on arrival after a long car journey. Kevin was a huge help with ferrying the 7 kids in a group to ski school each morning, Lee kindly showed us around on skis on the first morning, and was very helpful sorting out an issue with our son's ski lessons.
Our room was lovely, clean and nicely furnished, with plenty of space and a great view of Mont Blanc from the balcony. the food throughout the stay was superb, with delicious home-made cakes at teatime, and expertly cooked evening meals with plenty of superb wine!
Montchavin and Les Coches was a perfect reintroduction to skiing for us, having not skied for over 10 years, and a great introduction for our son's first taste of skiing.
I honestly could not fault anything about Chalet de la Vanoise. We loved it so much that we've just booked again for 2017!

“Excellent holiday, could not fault a thing!”
Reviewed February 28, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Although there was a lack of snow, this did not effect the overall enjoyment of the holiday. The chalet owners were extremely helpful even taken us to the lifts on the first couple of days until we were used to the bus system. The food was OUTSTANDING throughout the whole week, the chef (Lewis) and the chalet help (Sadie) where extremely helpful ensuring we had a enjoyable and stress free experience.
I would recommend this chalet to friends and family groups and would hope to be back one day!

“Fantastic Chalet, great catering and brilliant ski location”

We booked the chalet for exclusive use for 4 families over a year in advance (school holidays!) and it proved to be well worth the wait.

Lee & Kevin were helpful in arranging ski hire, kids lessons and lift passes in advance and these were all ready for us on arrival.

The accommodation was spacious, homely and perfectly suited our requirements with kids. There were also nice touches such as English plug sockets in the bedrooms. We all enjoyed the newly installed outdoor hot tub too.

The food was delicious and included some local specialities such as a fondue evening. The kids were also well catered for with simpler meals such as pasta and shepherds pie which kept everyone happy. The hosts even arranged a birthday tea for one of the kids with pizza and hot dogs etc which was a huge hit.

The skiing in Montchavin and beyond in La Plagne and Les Arcs was excellent. It is a short walk from the chalet to the piste and the children who were beginners, were able to ski back close to the chalet by the end of the week. It was also very useful that Kevin drove the kids and their equipment to the bottom of the bubble lift up to ski school each morning which saved time and made it a less stressful start to the day for us!

Overall we had a brilliant time and are keen to return to Chalet de la Vanoise!

“Comfortable, all mod cons and more with great skiing”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Our 3rd stay at this Chalet and it gets better year on year. The new heated bootroom is a massive bonus not to mention the amazing hot-tub with views over the mountain just a few steps from the sauna. Again a wonderful chef (Lee & Kev certainly know how to pick them) with a menu catering for all. The Chalet is ideally placed to ski Les Arcs or La Plagne as the fancy takes you with easy access to a great lift system and a myriad of runs at all levels. After a hard day of skiing the Chalet has everything you need, all the comfort of home plus more and a very friendly atmosphere. I can't recommend it highly enough.

“Brilliant - again”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is the 3rd year running I have stayed in Chalet De La Vanoise, and this year was even better with the addition of the hot tub overlooking the valley, and the refurbished boot room with boot warmers. This chalet is second to none; this year’s chef was extremely talented delivering amazing top restaurant quality food every time. Being located for such easy access to the vast ski area just makes me think why would I go anywhere else.

“Great catered chalet. Loved it!`”
Reviewed January 24, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed here last week and it was absolutely first class. Lee and Kevin were wonderful hosts.The food served by Lewis and Sadie was the best i have had in any catered chalet and on a par with a very good restaurant. With the whole of La Plagne and Les Arcs at your doorstep I would recommend this to anyone looking for a friendly, relaxed chalet with brilliant food.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed June 9, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was the first skiing holiday going to a catered chalet and we certainly were not disappointed. We arrived very late with two children aged 12 and 9 and to say we were apprehensive about sharing a chalet with others that we did not know was a concern however, not necessary as we found out. We were the only ones in the chalet with children and thankfully our children just fitted in. The chalet hosts Capri and Hayden were just brilliant and catered to everything requested. The others in the chalet were a group of british expats who were certainly entertaining - especially at dinner time with songs! Lee the owner was great and extremely helpful with any questions. We had a great room with more than enough space for us all and a great view of the pardiski area. Overall the food, wine and company was just great. We definately want to return if allowed.
