Booked this chalet for a group of 14 based on its description on the Ski Total website.
There are 2 double rooms on the first floor. These are indeed very nice. However the two twins rooms 4 and 7 are a joke.
Described as having attractive beamed ceilings what they don't tell you is the following -
These two rooms have a large beam that crosses the middle of the room, about shoulder height for an adult. Getting out of bed you inevitably bang your head. This room design in my opinion is actually dangerous. There is a small shower opposite a sink behind a sliding door. There is not enough room in this bathroom to get dried. Okay you have a shared WC in the corridor but it is narrow and does not have a sink to wash your hands.
The basement twin rooms which are apparently discounted surprisingly have very large bathrooms.
Rooms 4 and 7 would definitely best be descibed as children's rooms and not fit for adults.
As for the common room it has wooden bench seating, the most uncomfortable lounge ever. There is a traditional open fireplace and with all he logs piled outside you might expect an inviting log fire but no - the fireplace is for show and on our visit was blocked off.
The boot warmer was not switched on and after we turned it on there was a strong burning smell suggesting it had not been used for a very long time.

As for bread served at breakfast and dinner; minutes from shops and bakers selling gorgeous crusty French sticks and croissants etc, Inghams policy is to only provide what is best described as the cheapest part baked aenemic Azda style frozen bread. At least on this holiday, the bread was finished in the oven. My previous Inghams catered chalet holiday saw the bread chopped into small pieces and lighty toasted. Disgusting Inghams - this skimping on bread does you no favours whatsoever.

On a positive note the chalet location is excellent and Avoriaz a great location.

Having stayed in the room without full ensuite and having to stand bent over all the time for fear for being scalped by the roof beams I definitely felt cheated and therefore have to give this chalet the thumbs down.

EspritHolidays, Manager at Chalet Perce Neige, responded to this reviewResponded March 19, 2013

We do forewarn within our brochure description of rooms 4 and 7 in both the Chalet Perce Neige and the adjoining Chalet Violetta that they are ‘under eaves’ and have beamed ceilings, and also refer to variations in head clearance and other aspects of chalet bedrooms, which may differ even within the same accommodation. The bench seating in the living is as shown in our brochure photograph of the chalet and is as the reviewer has described, though has not been the subject of negative feedback from other of our guests previously. It is unfortunate that, during the week of the reviewer’s stay, the fireplace could not be used though our staff are working with the chalet owner in a bid to have the facility fully reinstated. This party have submitted a formal complaint in writing, which is being handled by the Guest Relations team.

We stayed here as a group of 14 guys and were more than looked after by our chalet hosts,Matt & Rosie. They went out of their way to feed us well putting so much effort into producing consistently good food and free flowing wine. The chalet is clean and modern with ski room downstairs and sauna. The only downside we would say about the chalet is that there is nowhere comfortable to sit, only chairs with cushions and benches with cushions. The chalet is perfectly located on the edge of the slopes and right next to the town area. I would really recommend the chalet and if you get Matt & Rosie from Ski Total you can be assured of being looked after.

This was our first experience of being part of a catered chalet and it was fantastic. The two chalet hosts (Matt and Joss) were brilliant guys who made us feel extremely welcome, fed us to an extremely high standard and kept the wine flowing. The chalet was clean and functional with a small but efficient boot room. The only area we felt could be improved was the sitting area in the chalet - there weren't quite enough seats and it wasn't very comfortable. However this definitely didn't spoil the experience. Ski in ski out was brilliant and the slopes were fantastic for our group of beginner/intermediate skiers.

We stayed at this chalet for Christmas. The ski conditions were FANTASTIC and the chalet is perfectly located for ski in/out and for going into the town in the evening (energy permitting). The chalet girls were lovely but not up to the normal standard one expects in a 4* chalet. The food was often served cold and the cockery wasnt clean or was chipped. There were many other minor things missing that we've been used to previously in catered chalets ......

It didnt spoil the holiday but it was disappointing. Thank goodness it was Christmas and we were full of goodwill!
