Chalet Sorbiers is a detached, traditional style, timber Chocolate Box Chalet. It is perfectly positioned on the edge of the forests just above the mountain village of Les Coches, a vibrant ski station, at the heart of the Paradiski area. As night falls the lights from the surrounding mountain villages make for a magical setting to your holiday. The views from this chalet are stunning with Mont Blanc and the Alps stretching into the distance.

The village of Les Coches has an extremely friendly ambiance, there are no ugly high-rise apartment blocks, the architecture has been carefully controlled to provide a picturesque wood and stone mountain village with a car free centre.

The Chalet is not far from the piste, with easy access to the Village for ski hire, ski school meeting points, shops, bars, restaurants and the crèche. There is a small Supermarket, Butcher and Boulangerie in the Village who will deliver direct to your chalet. An excellent Pizza takeaway, with a free delivery service, so you can order your food by phone in English or French, a menu is in the Chalet Information brochure which will be delivered to the Chalet and you can than settle down for a quiet evening by the fire!

There is also a company who will deliver food already prepared and all you have to do it pop it in the over. They also offer a food shopping service. There are many restaurants and bars in the Village.

When it comes to the Skiing that is what this Chalet is all about, one chair lift up is all that is needed to ski to the link to Les Arcs. The nearest chair lift is only 200 metres ski away and you can normally ski back almost right to the Chalet door!

SKIING & BOARDING

Our chalets and apartment are in the heart of the Paradiski area (420km of piste) offering more than enough variety for any level of skier or snowboarder. The Paradiski area comprises of the 2 huge ski areas of La Plagne and Les Arcs linked by the Vanoise Express cable car. Montchavin-Les Coches is perfectly placed in the centre giving quick and easy access to both areas.

The Paradiski area has something for everybody. For beginners there are two local areas specifically designed for you in Les Coches with nursery slopes separated from, but next to, one of the tree lined runs, which leads back to the chalet. A network of snow cannons on the lower slopes ensures that you will normally be able to ski back home.

The wide blues and reds of the Paradiski area are perfect for intermediates and the blacks on the Bellcôte Glacier and Aiguille Rouge are testing enough for any advanced skier or boarder. The famous off-piste route down the North Face of the Bellcôte Peak is well worth experiencing - you will need a qualified guide to show the way, we can vouch for the fact that it is awesome.

This is a great area for boarders, beginners and experts alike. There are some fantastic cruisy blues to get you started, a great off-piste playground, half pipe, board parks and boarder cross.

The size of the Paradiski area (one of the largest ski areas in the world) means there are plenty of day trips visiting other linked ski stations such as Les Arcs, Villaroger, Montalbert and Champagny. If 425km isn’t enough for you we are also only a 50 minutes drive from both Val d’Isere/Tignes and the 3 Vallees (one day in each is included in the Decouverte and the Paradiski pass).

"Cosy Mountain Retreat"

Most French self catered apartments are compact verging on the tiny. Whilst this chalet can't be described as hugely spacious, it is a great improvement on the average. The bedrooms are compact, but adequate. The bathrooms sadly lack baths, (which is a nice luxury after a long days skiing) but the showers are hot and have good water pressure. There is a good area in the entrance hall for storage of boots and skis, and the area is heated so you are not putting your feet into cold boots in the morning. The lounge/dining room/kitchen is all one open plan area. This means that it feels a lot more spacious than it really is, and there is no lost space due to unnecessary walls and doors. The wood burning stove is a lovely addition, and not only gives a cosy look but also is VERY efficient, pumping heat out, and keeping the whole area warm (we turned the electric heating right down in the evenings). If there is anything that could be criticised then it is the lack of comfy chairs. There is an availability of 5 seats when 6 are needed, however where you could fit the 6th seat is a debatable point!
The chalet is listed as sleeping up to 8, however since the last two beds are the sofa-bed in the living area, this would make for a VERY crowded chalet. I would not recommend any more than 6 unless the group is extremely well disciplined in keeping tidy!

Thank you for your review. We're glad that you had a good holiday and hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes from all at ski-lasource
