We stayed at chalet le Palane in Les Carroz from Thursday 21st to Monday 25th March and had an extremely relaxing weekend break.
Lexi and Sean are great hosts and we were very well looked after throughout our stay. We travelled on the early BA flight from Gatwick and were met at Geneva by the transfer taxi (Go Massif) and left for Les Carroz with no hanging around. An hour later and Lexi and Sean met us at the chalet and we were soon enjoying a nice cup of tea after which we got changed and were then driven down to the ski hire shop by Sean to get our skis and pick up boots from a friend’s apartment nearby – we were skiing tree-lined runs in the sunshine by 1pm!
Le Palane is a very comfortable chalet in a lovely elevated position overlooking Les Carroz. We skied hard and then relaxed, ate and slept very well. Sean and Lexi’s cooking was excellent, everything was freshly prepared with more than enough to go round. The bedrooms were quiet, spacious and warm with plenty of storage and hanging space. Beds were nicely firm, comfortable and duvets were cosy. Bath and shower rooms were always clean with plenty of hot water and fresh towels. There was a spacious ski room with boot warmers and plenty of space to get ski-togs on and off and dry things out. The lounge area was an ideal spot for pre and post-dinner relaxation in front of the roaring log fire and a glass of wine to hand. The whole chalet is a haven of peace and so relaxing which I really appreciated after a stressful year at home.
Having skied most of the major French ski stations that have become overcrowded and horrendously expensive, I love the friendly feel of Les Carroz and the extensive snow-sure skiing, together with the short transfers and easy access….I will definitely be back next year (hopefully with my two little ones ) to stay with Lexi and Sean, thanks again for a great time!
