Slightly Disappointed........ Having stayed at Chalet La Foret many times over the years, I was disappointed to experience a drop in food standards. Unfortunately on this occasion we found the food lacking in flavour and imagination, the wine tasteless and the coffee disgusting. I would suggest taking your own coffee and nipping down to the Sherpa for your wine!
On a more positive note the Chalet is in a perfect position on the Blue run of the same name, making it fabulous ski in ski out. The new boot room is a welcome addition, however walking across the terrace can be a bit difficult when covered in ice. The rooms are clean and functional and the front facing rooms have a lovely view over the Tarentaise Valley, however this will cost you extra. The Cavern Bar is a great place for drinks before dinner and for a simple lunch. The underground parking is a must with the freezing temperatures of late, book with ski Olympic before you go.
We love Chalet La Foret for its fantastic position, the surrounding area and the easy at which the Les Arcs pistes can be accessed making for a perfect Ski Holiday, but for a taste of France you are best to hit some of the fantastic restaurants on the piste. Try L'Appette and Chalet de l'arc.
