Lovely chalet, a great situe and fabulous view
We were 5 adults all who have skied La Plagne many times but always stayed slope side. The chalet was a gem of a find for us. It had everything we needed and more. We hired a van to move us around which was perfect. As it was late March and the snow was thinning around the chalet we didn't use the ski in ski out but this would have been a great thing to do if we had been there earlier in the season.
Our evenings were spent playing cards and chatting about the day around the cosy kitchen table and lounging on the lovely big couch with a G&T. Water was hot and plentiful, beds comfy (softer than home but comfy none the less) We didn't use the boot room as we left the skis in the van (very safe) and bought the boots in to dry on the trays provided.
Buy food on the way to La Plagne as the shops and choice is expensive and limited. Don't forget the loo roll!
Food on the hill, as expected is expensive, we took sandwiches and biscuits which got us through to the beer at 5pm (about 30euros for 5 beers) Food in the chalet, we were organised and brought it all with us from the supermarket for the week. We just topped up with fresh bread from the patisserie each day.
Communication with Helen was great. We didn't need Kate's services except to tell her when we would be arriving and leaving so I am unable to comment on this. I think she would have been a great bonus if we hadn't had our own kit. I do suggest you get the lift passes from Kate. We had a disabled person with us so had to take him and his disability paperwork to the lift pass office. This wasn't the easiest place to find and we had to ride a lift to get there so if you don't need to go to the office yourself get Kate to help you out.
We skied Les Arcs one day, first lift up last lift back, epic day and can be done once with your lift pass.
The bus stop is a few minutes from the chalet. The buses aren't regular but are on time (in March anyway - this may be different at different times of the season) We used it twice for nights out. Once to La Plagne Centre for fondue (can't recall the restaurant name but on the corner opposite Croque Niege) and once to 1800 for Pizza & Tartiflette at The White Wolf - delicious food both times and next time we are having the Raclette!
All in all a brilliant week for us. Blue skies, sunshine, good conditions, great chalet and fantastic view morning and evening. Would definitely recommend and would return for sure.
Perfect ski chalet
Loved this chalet. We stayed Feb half term and it was perfect for our family. It was a real plus to have two bathrooms. The chalet was beautifully clean and the beds the comfiest holiday beds we have ever slept on. The kitchen had everything you could need. The kitchen and living room were really nicely laid out. It was a very sociable space. In the evenings we watched some dvds together which never happens at home. We had a great family holiday. The ski bus takes less than 10 minutes to get into the main ski area. The only downside for us was the bus was only once an hour. This meant you had to be really organised otherwise wait for the next bus. We would recommend storing your skis overnight at Oxygene as it saved a lot of hassle taking skis on the bus. Oxygene were super helpful. We had a couple of private lessons with them. We will definitely return.
Superbes vacances dans un appartement chaleureux et très bien placé
L'appartement est spacieux, lumineux et très propre. Très bien situé à proximité de la station et de la navette. Au calme. Merci à Mme Killner pour son accueil chaleureux.
Spotless, comfortable, stunning views
La Cabine is a modern, spotlessly clean apartment, beautifully situated with ever-changing views of Mont Blanc and within very easy reach of the many ski slopes in the area. The apartment has been furnished and equipped with a careful eye to cater for all age groups and requirements. Much thought has been given as to where to store/dry wet ski suits, where to safely store skis etc. The modern kitchen is well planned and easy for self-catering and the slow cooker was a godsend. The bedrooms are very well equipped with high quality linens. There is a never-ending supply of hot water from the modern and well appointed bathrooms.
Don't be fooled into thinking this is a destination purely for skiers. We arrived in early September with the temperature in the mid 70's and our holiday was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our lazy, sunny breakfasts on the balcony watching the scenery change by the minute. We can recommend trips out to places such as Sangot Lake with its FOC leisure activities and the white water river alongside, ideal for rafting! Take a drive to Chapieux a Glaciers (where for us, right on cue, a goatherd was bringing his flock down from the mountains, a lovely sight and sound with the neck bells ringing loudly). Take a white-knuckle ride through the mountain passes and across the dam at Barrage de Roselend with its huge lake.
Needless to say for the energetic skiers among us the area has fantastic ski runs for daytime activities and later into the evening apres ski there are bars, restaurants, swimming pools aplenty to suit all ages and tastes. The valley villages also have very good shopping facilities and bars and restaurants where you can while away some time sitting in the sunshine and enjoying the atmosphere.
On our return trip to Geneva airport we passed through and had a picnic in Annecey, with its huge blue lake and seaside feel, a worthwhile visit if you have time.
Please don't miss out on this versatile and wonderful holiday destination.
Excellent facilities - very comfortable
Very good position for lots of summer activities for a family of 4 - white water rafting, cycling, walking. Great Lake nearby for swimming and paddle boarding etc - excellent very clean very well equipped chalet - fantastic views - breakfast with Mont Blanc views - excellent for families
Wonderful week at La Cabine
We are a family of five (2 adults and 3 kids aged 8-14) and have just had a fantastic week staying at La Cabine which is just below Plagne 1800. The chalet is extremely comfortable and very well laid out with beautiful views of the mountains across the valley. We drove to the chalet and brought some food with us however there is there is a well stocked Spar convenience store in Plagne 1800 and also Plagne Centre. As previously reviews have mentioned, it is not really practical to walk up to Plagne 1800 (especially if carrying ski gear) although there is an hourly free bus service from the chalet up to Plagne 1800 and Plagne Centre. The snow was fantastic during our stay
it would be advisable to buy your groceries on the day of arrival in the supermarkets in the valley.
During the winter season there are several parking places on the way up to La Plagne for you to fit your snow chains. Please remember to practice putting them on before you leave home and have the correct type of gloves to wear to help you do this in the snow. Please also refer to the current road regulations whilst driving in France to identify what items you must have in your vehicle.
