We stayed here for a week over the easter holidays . I had previously booked this hotel with crystal and was let down last minute ( NEW YEAR 2011) . I managed to book a private apartment through holiday lettings .com . and it was worth the waite . The hotel is very nice and modern and the view from our apt was amazing .

We visited in August for a week and were blown away by the view! Wish we had known to ask for an apartment facing the front, rather than the back. Facilities were great - comfortable apartment with everything including dishwasher tabs, swimming pool with that great view, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness room etc. etc. It was a novel experience trying to play table tennis out in the open with the wind trying to steal our ball! Grocery, bakery, restuarant and pizzeria in easy reach. The only downside was the drive up and down when we wanted to go to Chamonix or Geneva - but even that was mitigated by the villages along the way... Would go again, if I had the chance!

Room Tip: The 'classic' apartments face the back - while booking, ask for one facing front.

Our second time at this accommodation which means that we liked it enought to go back. The pools area gets really crowded at a certain time, you will not always get a sauna or steam session unless you want to queue.
The accommodation itself is very nice and for the reason that Flaine offers some of the best skiing I've done the I'd possibly go back again. Gone off self catering so will not be for a while.
The position is not great, if you want to eat out, wait for a bus or walk it to the lower level of Flaine for the most restuarant choice.
Also if you wanted to go back to the room for a rest at lunch its a stretch of the imagination to call it ski in & out - but by diversion I suppose it qualifies.
We found the staff at Montsoliel to be really helpful and polite on both visits. Ski school is a thing of the past for us but for the kids we know that instructors were v good, tolerant and polite.

Overall - I'd recommend it particularly if you are a bit fussy over quality of accommodation.

Room Tip: Low floors for easy access to pools and lockers

The apartment we stayed in had 3 bedrooms (2 ensuite) and lots of room with nice views and a balcony. It has all the mod cons you could expect. The kitchenette area is quite small, but OK for our needs and we cooked 6 out of 7 nights for a family of 4 so no problems at all. The complex it is in has a beautiful open air heated swimming pool that looks out onto the mountains. inside their is a large jacuzzi and steam room. It really is spot on. Shame there isn't a proper bar in the place, but that should not put you off. They have adequate ski lockers on one of the floors and you can ski from here down to a short lift. Take this up and then the immediate run to your right takes you down to the ski school area. I know people have said it is quite complicated to find your way back to the hotel, but it isn't. Give yourself a bit of time on the first day and follow the map. Once you have done it once it is a doddle and saves taking your boots off in the Ski area and either catching the bus or walking (15-20 mins walk).
We hired our equipment from Skiset which is on the right hand side as you walk from the apartment down to the ski slopes. You can pick up your ski equipment the afternoon before you start your lessons if you wish.
For the family ski lessons (all different abilities) we used the French Ski School ESI. All the instructors apart from the one my missus had were really good.
Their is a Spa Supermarket, Butchers, Bakers and a Delicateson underneath the Skiset ski hire shop where you can buy all of your essentials. The good thing with the Spa is that you can actually buy online, although we didn't manage to succeed due to our poor French. However, go into the shop, fill up your trolley and they will deliver it all within a couple of hours free. This saves humping bags up the bank to the apartments. For fresh bread, nice cakes and croissants then either use the bakers mentioned above or ask the reception in the hotel and they will order bread and croissants for you which are available first thing in the morning.
They run a few activities most evenings for the adults/kids such as Table Tennis, Poker, etc. We took part in the multinational table tennis one night and had a laugh. I cannot comment on the Apres Ski as we tended to entertain ourselves with games and watch DVDs in our apartment. For families I really think it is ideal, although for a younger couple wanting to hit the town, then my feeling is that you would be better placed to head somewhere other than Flaine.
The ski area is superb and seeing that it was March there were no queues anywhere and the conditions were superb. Hence the reason that we have just booked again for 2013. We will use the same ski hire and ESI for lessons. We look forward to returning to Flaine.

Best accomodation, Fantastic Staff , Clean ,Good kitchen with all utensils,Good Ski In and Out .
We were a group of 40 people and everyone had a great time. This will be the 3rd trip with our families. They all love the Swimming pool, Steam, Sauna, Jacussi facilities.
Problem only for beginners-- they could not use the Ski IN/Out facilities and had to use the bus-- Still not bad as buses every 15 mins .
Make sure that you take enough food with you as very expensive to eat everyday in mountain restaurants .

We travelled with Neilsen, and this was our first holiday with them. The Monsolieil apartments are well set up and furnished and made for a very comfortable and relaxing week. We were travelling with our 2 children aged 5 and 7 and this was their first experience of a Ski Holiday, so we were keen for everything to be right to give them a positive and enjoyable holiday. The swimming pool was superb, and each afternoon we spent at least an hour enjoying the stunning views of the mountains whilst lazing around and having fun in the 29 degree water! Once we had enough of swimming, it was in to the Hot Tub inside, which at 32 degrees was a fab warm up before retiring back upstairs in our complimentary dressing gowns. The skiing was great, and considering we travelled on the 21st March, the snow was still in very good condition, particularly on the high slopes. We tended to self cater all but two evenings, and found the food very expensive in the supermarkets. In fact I had anticipated this and took a whole bag full of food with me which I have to admit was worth the effort. One tip is to take advantage of the evening shuttle bus, and use the Sherpa supermarket in the Forum, not the Spar in Flaine Foret as it was definitely cheaper. We did have a very good pizza on the first evening at Monte Bianco in Foret, I'd recommend it, and very child friendly. We also used Patrick's Ski Locker at the foot of the nursery slope at the Foret, to save us having to lump both our equipment and the children's everyday on the bus. This was worth the money, but he was quite grumpy, so don't expect a smile..! Our rep from Neilsen was excellent, attentive but not too much and couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great holiday. We will probably use them again next year. All in all, an excellent holiday, some fabulous spring skiing, especially some of the red runs down from the Les Grandes Platieres. If you are looking for a family orientated resort, then Flaine is a good bet and I'm sure we will be back at some stage. Don't be put off by the shabby looking concrete apartment blocks and the 'acquired taste' nature of the 60's architecture. Its never going to be pretty, but if you want 'chocolate box' then go to Austria or Switzerland. The skiing is great for beginners and intermediates looking for fun and some fantastic mountain views. All in all a great holiday and a great place to stay. We throughly recommend it.

Room Tip: High floors are quieter, we were on the 6th and it was so peaceful, we are slept brilliantly.

What a great hotel in a great ski area - I've been to many different resorts both in the Alps and over in Andorra and can safely say that this accomodation is by far the best I've experienced.
The apartment was well set out (lounge, kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom & balcony) and even included a fireplace in the lounge area for those cozy real-fire moments - though be aware that Flaine is a relatively expensive place to stay when it comes to food, drink & even firewood!
The Montsoleil is located just outside the main centre of Flaine, but is only a 3 minute bus ride away - the buses run regularly, are free of charge & there are stops immediately outside the front of the hotel, so don't worry about having to walk too far in uncomfortable boots.
The ski-in, ski-out issue seems to keep coming up throughout reviews for the Montsoleil, but it really isn't a problem. We're a mixed snowboarding/skiing family of varying experience and found it very convenient, as the actual access to the ski locker area (located on the 3rd floor) is accessed by coming off of an easy blue run (the piste "opale") - and skiing about 100m on a relatively flat green run up to the hotel. Admittedly, if you're a skier, you may have to use your poles and if you're on a snowboard, take a good run-up, but this shouldn't represent any real inconvenience to anyone of even minimal fitness. Access back on to the pistes can be skied, but again you'll have to push for about 50m (or just walk if you're on a snowboard) - after which, you'll be back on to "opale" and after a short run, be at the "gerats" chairlift - tres facile!
As for the staff of the Montsoleil, I know it's been said many times before on this site, but they really are very helpful, multilingual & friendly and are a real credit to the hotel.
The spa facilities are truly a welcome bonus and much appreciated after a hard day on the snow - but of course, get very busy, so be prepared to make some close friends!
The only other thing to be aware of is that your room may not be ready until 5pm, so be prepared to go for a little exploration of Flaine on the day you arrive, although there is an area you can leave luggage, plus in the late afternoon the hotel provides a little "welcome buffet" of hot beverages & cakes!
Finally, on the first night, we discovered that a previous guest had left a soft toy monkey behind - now safe with us, but if the owner would like to make themselves known we would be happy to organise a re-union!

Room Tip: Even numbers are front of hotel and therefore get more sun during the day! Rooms above 3rd floor wi...
