Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 nights

Overview

About the property

Comfortable & Spacious, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom high standard apartment in chalet

This sumptuous apartment with stunning, panoramic views is situated on the top floor of an attractive wood and stone built chalet.It offers non obstructive views to the entire Haute Tarentaise mountain massive ensuring you a true "zen" feeling both when you wake up as when you arrive after a nice day of skiing or hiking!

It is located in the village of Les Coches, in the heart of the vast Paradiski area (425km of slopes) and is great for both winter and summer holidays. Les Coches is known as "Montchavin La Plagne" since 2016 and truly the center of the ski domains La Plagne, Les Arcs and Peisey-Vallandry.

Only 250m from the first lift, the apartment is close to all the village amenities, yet enjoys peace and quiet resulting in a beautiful Alpine retreat.

The spacious apartment sleeps 4 adults comfortably (thanks to two separate large bedrooms) and can accommodate up to 6 with the use of a comfortable quality double sofa bed.

The apartment benefits from high-vaulted, beamed ceilings giving an additional feeling of space. The french windows that lead from the living area onto the large balcony ensure the panoramic views over to Mont Blanc and Italy will present a superb backdrop to your stay. Enjoy extended panoramic sights, or the classic "mer de nuages" (sea of clouds) only true unobstructed mountain views will be able to offer you.

The apartment is part of the 'Les Chalets de Wengen' development, providing the added benefit of access to an on-site indoor swimming pool (free) and Spa facility including jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, yet thanks to the fact it is located in an isolated chalet means you do not have the classic "buzz" of a ski complex.

The reception in the main building has an open fireplace, comfortable seating, complimentary tea and coffee, pool table, free Wi-Fi.

Fresh bread, croissants and pain au chocolate can be ordered at the reception and are available the next morning for collection. Free trolleys are available from Reception for arrival and departure days.

About Julie

I'm Julie and I live in Belgium. I fluently speak Dutch, English and also have good knowledge of French.

With a busy job in the Pharmaceutical sector and 2 young kids, I try to balance my busy live by travelling to the mountains as much as possible: during summer for the nature and hikes and in the winter season for outdoor skiing and just being in the mountains!

Julie purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Julie chose La Plagne area

It was love at first sight with the apartment: the spacious living room with wooden ceiling, large balcony and *very* amazing view.

The location is also excellent: very close to the ski lifts but still in a quiet area to enjoy silent stay. With two young kids this is was an important issue!

This property is excellent for winter holiday (skiing, snowboarding,...) but also in summer (hiking, cycling,...). Les Coches is a beautiful village with a character and linked to a very big skiing area. It is like being in a rural area without the disadvantages, yet having the vast ski areas at close proximity!

What makes this apartment unique

The excellent view to the Haute Tarentaise valley and mountains, the quiet but central implantation and the very "village" like surroundings without being too isolated!

This was our second stay in the apartment. Unbelievable view, great kitchen and beautiful rooms. Very enjoyable with kids also. More then enough space for everybody and to relax after a nice day outside.

Nice chalet close to town and lifts

  • 4 of 5

A comfortable and well equipped chalet. Great views from the balcony and a short walk into the village shops and restaurants and, more importantly, the chair lift up to plan boe.

Easy to self cater with proper cooker/oven and a dishwasher. Nice to have a larder with a few basic food items left from past guests.

The short drive up from the valley makes this a good option for arriving by car. Would stop here again if we skied this area.

Thanks

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. The chairlift indeed is pretty close and allows instant skiing without having to haul skis too long. In summer, Bourg-Saint-Maurice is just about 15 minutes by car and La Rosière (Col du Petit Saint-Bernard) about half an hour drive. Totally different, but cyclers delight! Thanks again and hope to see you again in the future!

Spacious, clean and cosy chalet with amazing views.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this lovely chalet with my two daughters and son for two weeks in Feb 2017. Firstly the instructions to find the chalet were superb. The high ceiling in the lounge area gives a real feeling of space, the kitchen area is well organised and has an array of equipment. A pantry too with extras was very useful as we were self catering. The whole chalet was very clean and fresh smelling and had a cosy feeling. The view from the lounge Windows is stunning. The bathroom and ensuite were uptodate and the bedrooms comfortable. My only nag would be that better lighting would help as it did feel a little dark for reading etc. Also some tiles had been broken by previous rental people - when we reported this to the owners they apologised and said they would have them repaired. The walk up the hill to the lifts for skiing certainly keeps you fit! Overall lovely chalet.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your wonderful review. As for the lighting we are still looking for a creative way to add more light without loosing the current cozy feeling of the chalet apartment. We do apologize for the broken tile. Our best guess is a misplaced ski boot by a previous renting guest (not allowed in the apartment!) has broken the tile. We are already working on a replacement but fixing that in short term was difficult of course. The little walk to the first Plan Bois chairlift makes sure you're all warmed up for the ski day! Thanks again, and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay!

Very good accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Large and clean flat with very nice view on the Mont-Blanc from the wide balcony; perfectly in line with the pictures. The mountain style decoration sounds right and the 2 real bedrooms with bathrooms make it much more comfortable than usual ski accommodation. I definitely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the holiday and hope you had a wonderful time. The balcony is also one of our favorites, in summer it's a great place to read and enjoy the view, in the winter it's a window to the mountains ;-)

Lovely apartment, well equipped, AMAZING views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from our stay in the apartment. The location is great for skiing - just 5 min walk to the Plan Bois chair lift in Les Coches - then your have incredible skiing available to you in the La Plagne region. Great little square in Les Coches and a free shuttle bus service will take you to the slightly larger village of Montchavin - very pretty village. Apartment was clean and superbly equipped. I asked if we could stay a bit later on our day of departure to fit in with our train times. She was flexible - made an astonishing difference to our last day.

Les Coches is situated in the Montchavin La Plagne ski domain, part of the huge Paradiski area with over 425 km of slopes.

During winter there are plenty of activities from winter hikes with (or without) snow shoes, to snowboard fun in half pipes, off-piste skiing and ski touring or just relaxing on the slopes in one of the many chalet restaurants.

Les Coches is within walking distance (it does not take more than a 3-5 minute walk) and has some excellent restaurants, butcher, bakery and supermarket as well as animation and entertainment for families. Thanks to the Famille Plus label, the village is enjoyable and a bit outside the "typical" noisy après ski villages, making it an excellent base for your winter holiday. On one day you can ski from Les Coches to La Plagne, to Peisey-Vallandry thanks to the Vanoise Express liaison straight to Les Arcs, and back (no kidding, we actually did it...).

Not known by many, but Les Coches also makes a wonderful summer holiday destination for lovers of nature, hiking, mountainbike and outdoors. During July and August the village has a nice and relaxed atmosphere. With very nice forests, mountains lakes and peaks just a hike away it is one of the more interesting summer alternatives for the nature enthousiast.

The Vanoise National Parc (known for its wonderful and remote nature, Alpine Ibex and protected landscapes) is at close proximity and the famous GR5 trail runs straight thru the area. If you rather fancy mountain lakes, the Lac La Plagne is within hiking reach, as well as the wonderful Champagny area. We highly recommend the region, both in winter, as well as summer seasons!
