As a regular contributor to Tripadvisor, my 5 star ratings are few. However, I have no hesitation in awarding the Alpage the maximum rating and I can only repeat the accolades of other reviewers - this hotel really is a jewel in the French Alps. Since our last visit in 2008 the inimitable manager, Thierry, has made many improvements and added his personal touch with a large collection of interesting antiques and artwork displayed throughout the chalet. The cosy communal lounge is set around a roaring log fire where you can enjoy apres-ski drinks - and if you are unlucky, Thierry's bad jokes! Meals are of a very high standard but don't worry if the evening menu is not to your liking because the attentive chef will happily prepare a tasty alternative. The comfortable rooms are beautifully furnished and have stunning views of the surrounding mountains and pistes and the swimming pool and hot tub are very welcome after a strenuous day on the slopes. But we were there to ski and the chalet is ideally situated in a tranquil spot outside of La Clusaz within a few yards of the green run down into town and the Les Laquais lift linking you to La Aiguille, Merdassier and Croix Fry.
Many thanks to Thierry and his team - despite our woefully short break due to delays caused by the appalling UK weather - we had a great time and look forward very much to seeing you all next year. Steve and Jules
