“Perfect.....”
Reviewed February 25, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just had week at Chalet Etoile. In terms of the skiing, it was excellent with great weather and snow and the chalet is pretty much ski in ski out, albeit need to be reasonable skiers. Skied Paradiski 5/6 times and superb area and we highly rate.
In terms of the Chalet. It was warm and spacious and nicely laid out with everything that we wanted. It had excellent facilities and the open plan layout was exactly what we were looking for. The bedrooms were all decent sized. There was plenty of storage area for skis and boots. In short it was perfect for us and I would highly recommend. In fact, we have already booked our holiday back next year.
Two observations, one of which is nothing to do with chalet. The road up to the chalet was extremely icy and I needed to put snow socks on to get down as went into full slide, which on the gradient was a bit of a test and quite scary!?. Whoever has responsibility for road could do with getting some grit out. The second one is more on behalf of teeenage children, that being there was no wifi in the chalet. This was like the end of the world for them. If at all possible, wifi would be a big bonus!!
In summary, booking was easy and pleasant. Chalet was perfect, clean and well laid out and holiday was brilliant.

“Great Half Term Skiing”

We hadn't been back to the la Plagne for a few years, but as expected it didn't disappoint. Fantastic weather coupled with great accommodation. The chalet is really spacious with good cooking and bathroom facilities. Easy access via the La Roche chair and we found the conditions made it virtually ski in/ski out. Sitting at around 1800 means that the snow stays pretty solid even when heading back at the end of a warm day.

Definitely recommend. Housed two families with ease. Back again next year, already booked.

“Beautiful spacious chalet in superb ski area !”
Reviewed March 6, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in this chalet in march 2016 with a family with 3 kids (8, 10 & 13y) and one elder lady. We found the chalet on TripAdvisor, all communication went via TripAdvisor and it worked wonderfully well and fast. The communication was fast and prompt.
We found the chalet exactly as described and on the pictures !
It was spacious and very comfortable. In a nice and quiet area but yet close to the slopes, the busstop, the skilift and some shops. The house was in an excellent shape, it really felt like home.
Downstairs two garages (which we did not use every day but we did use them however), in one of the garages shoes and skis can be stored. There is also a heating so everything is nice and warm in the morning. Also a washing machine and dryer is in the house.
On the first floor are all the bedrooms (but one): 2 3-p bedrooms and 2 2-p bedrooms, as well as 3 bathrooms. On the topfloor is the spacious living room with 3 comfortable couches, a huge TV (english channels), DVD player, there are boardgames in the house, a nice and VERY comfy woodstove (wood can be bought in the valley), the kitchen with an enormous fridge, an oven, microwave, waterboiler, dishwasher etc. ON the topfloor is also a toilet and a 1-p bedroom (we did not use).
The heating is working very well in the whole house, we were sooo comfortable !

One week before departure we were contacted with further instructions on how to enter the house and that also worked very well.

The only thing we missed was internet, which is something we did miss. IT was not a surprise however, the owner did tell us in advance there was no internet. Hopefully it will be added soon, it would make the house perfect !

It was our first time we rented a house via TripAdvisor and it was a more than pleasant experience. We are considering renting again next year, really really good !

Oh and please: do NOT forget snowchains for the car, we had so much snow we really needed them, it is not possible to reach the house by car with that amount of snow (that is: the last 100 meters, uphill, to the house.)

A brilliant chalet with all the facilities and amenities you could ask for. Extremely well equipped (which for a self catering chalet is really important). Would definitely stay again.
Thank you

“Perfect on every level!”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

An amazing place to stay, plenty of space to relax spread out, we were a family of 7 adults and 2 children. This chalet has a real 'at home' feel about it and is very well equipped. It was exactly as described and in top condition, having everything we needed. We will definitely be back again :)

We drove each day to Plagne Centre, which only took a few minutes, but there is a bus stop a few meters away with free shuttles to the slopes.

Plenty of parking and good size garages if needed.

“Spacious chalet, good location, highly recommended”
Reviewed February 8, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We were a party of 9 adults and found the chalet to be very spacious and comfortable. All the furnishings are comfortable and of good quality, and the pictures are an accurate representation of what you get. Initially we were one dining chair short, but we requested an extra chair and this appeared promptly- the owners and property management team were both very helpful and easy to contact.
The chalet itself is a 2 minute drive (or free bus ride) out of Plagne 1800, just off the (surprisingly quiet) main mountain road. There are no shops in the hamlet of Crete Cote itself, so best to stock up before arriving and top up at one of the nearby supermarkets in resort. There is a large fridge, freezer and proper oven and hob, as well as microwave.
The views from the chalet are great- un-interrupted mountain vistas.
Skiing was good and we were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get to the slopes. We had good snow, so it was possible to walk across the road and ski down a track which joins near the bottom of a red run, and from there a chair lift takes you up to Plagne Aime (with access to the rest of the area from there). But the ski bus stop is very close- a minute's walk if you don't fancy the track.
To ski back, go down the Roche Red run, and where the piste meets the road, take skis off and walk 5 mins down the road back to chalet. Alternatively, you can ski (via blue runs) to Plagne 1800, past the '1800' lift, walk across the road and car park, and ski down a walking track, bear left and short wooded track takes you back to the chalet- couple of minutes- (or walk down the track- about 4-5 minutes in ski gear). Alternatively just catch the bus which runs hourly and stops pretty much directly outside chalet.
Great chalet; we would definitely return there.
