About Johanna S
About us We love skiing and love skiing in La Plagne. We have enjoyed getting the apartment ready for us to use and to rent it out for other outdoor and winter sports fans.
Johanna S purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Johanna S chose La Roche
A modern apartment built in the traditional alpine style, offering generous sized accommodation for a holiday home. Fitted out to a good specification, many of the fixtures and fittings were new for the 2015 season, and continue to be updated regularly. Crete Cote is a quiet residential area just below Plagne 1800, making it a great base for a holiday in La Plagne. Access to the pistes is easy, with a pisted tracking giving great access to the La Roche run. In the evening it is possible through most of the season to return to within 100m or so of the apartment by taking a back route along a track from Plagne 1800. For those less confident, there is a good bus service up the mountain to Plagne 1800 or down to the La Roche lift, and back home at the end of the day.
What makes this Apartment unique
We hope that if you book to stay in our apartment that you will enjoy it as much as we and our children do. We love the bright, airy feel, the spacious balcony and the just fabulous views. La Plagne is a great place to holiday in winter or summer.

Lovely, comfortable, well equipped apartment.
We have just returned from chalet Colchique after a weeks stay. The apartment is spacious, immaculately clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The shower was great and the beds comfortable, both important after a day's skiing! We found the kitchen to be very well equipped with everything we needed and enjoyed making use of the Raclette machine. it was great to have the garage space for our car. We tended to leave our skis in there overnight/ change into our boots there in the am. It was a short walk across the road to the track which joined the red run to the La Roche chair in the morning. The queue was never long and it takes you up quickly to join the extensive ski area.
David also kindly sent us the directions for the track home from plagne 1800 which enabled us to ski back to the chalet most evenings.
The terrace is lovey, we wrapped up in the blankets provided and had a few evening drinks out there.
Johanna and David have both been extremely prompt in their replies to our emails answering all of the questions we had. I highly recommend this apartment and we will definitely be back.
Lovely chalet with all the home comforts, in a great location.
Great appartment with everything you need and more
First to start with the people, Johanna and David the owners of the property gave us all the information we needed and answered every question that we had on getting ready for our trip advise on ski rentals and driving etc, the response time was usually within an hour, really first class. Kate who looks after the appartment was also great, loads of information was given and she was really responsive to all our needs, she arranged the ski passes so that they were ready for us, we did not have to go anywhere, it was all ready. Rental Republic for ski boots and skis were also amazing, with the at appartment service we did not need to go to the rental shop.
The location is quiet, suited to families, the apartment is lovely, really comfortable and well equipped with everything that you would need. the WiFi is quick, and the smart TV great for relaxing and watching films in the evening. the kitchen has more than you need we cooked most nights and could cook anything that we wanted, the fridge is large enough to hold a weeks worth of food, unusual in holiday appartments. The beds and pilows are really comfortable also unusual for holiday homes, I could honestly not fault anything.
The bus service from the bottom of the road was great, and we ventured out a couple of times in the evening to plagne 1800 and La Roche. You can easily ski to the La Roche lift from the opening oposite the bus stop, and coming back we ususally ended the day at the La Roche Restaurant next to the lift, the people in there are lovely really welcoming with lovely log fires and serve great waffles and hot chocolate.
We had a lovely Christmas break in a beautiful appartment and location. Thank you.
So glad you had a good time!
Comfortable, cosy, and well equipped chalet
We stayed in March 2017, we found the chalet to be very comfortable, spacious, and well equipped for relaxing after skiing, with games/movies/wifi etc. Great views from the balcony too. Would definitely recommend.
All nearly perfect!
We spent one week in this apartment - the equipment was very good, in the kitchen all what you need and it was very clean. The Internet works very fast. The communication with Johanna and Kate was very good and all was done to make our holiday to a perfect stay.
The only thing, we have had some problems: when 4 persons come from skiing and want to take a shower, it was not enough hot water for all. Kate told us what will help, but we have to wait 2 hours that new hot water was available.
The years before we have been in another appartment in Crete Cote Village with the same size of boiler - there weren't any problems, perhaps this problem can be solved in the future.
Thanks for all!
Thank you for your review. I'm glad you had a good holiday and found almost everything to be perfect! I am looking into the hot water issue that you mentioned - I suspect that a setting on the boiler had been changed - we can put that right! Kind regards, Johanna.
A real gem!
We had a fabulous week staying in this clean, well appointed and spacious apartment. The owners information pack and communications were quite excellent and we were blessed with great snow and sun. Garage parking was a real bonus and so too was the ability to ski down a short track and onto a red run in the mornings. We did also use the shuttle bus which was staggeringly punctual and gave an alternative start to the days skiing. We ate out a couple of times and again used the bus to and fro. All in all, a smashing apartment. We'll be back!
Thank you for your lovely comments, and I am glad you enjoyed your stay!
Situated in La Plagne, part of the massive Paradiski area, there really is something for skiers of all abilities. It's great for families, beginners and experts alike.
The apartment is located just down the hill from Plagne 1800. Access to the the nearest red run piste (the Roche lift,) is by a short walk or for confident skiers by an off piste track. The free bus runs every hour up and down the mountain, so provides a twice and hour frequency service to the lifts if you do not want to ski.
If you book lessons with the Oxygene ski school a minibusis available to pick you up for lessons and drop you back afterwards.
Summer in the mountains is great fun too. There are plenty of well signposted walks and absolutely loads of mountain bike trails . July and August provide activity for all of the family with key lifts open making access to the mountains easy.
