My Favourite Ski Area - without question Champagny/La Plagne (best value, best skiing, best slopes (blue heaven), and second favourite - Courchevel, which is especially suitable for absolute beginners, with slopes to suit all abilities from absolute beginners to black run addicts.

"Beautiful, cosy chalet with incredible views"
I stayed in Chez Helene with family on a skiing holiday and can not recommend it highly enough! The chalet is warm and inviting and was well equipped with everything that we needed. Our host David was so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The area is beautiful with some breath taking scenery - an added bonus is that the location is away from the noise of the main ski resorts but it's just a short drive to get there. There is so much to do in the area and David is a fantastic guide who can recommend something to suit everyone. We went for skiing and were not disappointed by the selection of nearby ski resorts.
I will definitely be booking again - a gem in the Alps not to be missed!!
Thank for so much for your lovely review and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay here. True to your word you have already booked to return, and I am very much looking forward to seeing you here again this coming March.

"Lovely location, well equipt chalet, great host"
We came in a a big group and had a great week at the chalet. Skiing, cooking, eating relaxing, drinking etc. David is a great host and skiing companion. It's close to ski resorts by car and there is also a lovely Spa a short drive away. The chalet is clean, homely and warm and the beds are very comfy. The living space was a little cramped with our very large group (11-12 I think) but we made it work. When we went the hot water was limited to a tank so we had to take turns and have shorter showers but it wasn't a big problem, David may have upgraded this by now.
Overall a lovely home from home to enjoy the Alps!
Thank you. Really hope to see you, and your close friends out here again soon to share in the amazing fun skiing, and Apres Ski dancing on the tables. One of the best fun and enjoyable groups I have ever hosted. You are always welcome. David

"Stunning views with easy access to the best skiing and an English host"
We visited this chalet in the summer as we were passing through to assess a return for skiing later in the year. It really is a beautiful spot nestling in the foot hills of he main skiing areas of the French alps. David, our host, was charming and nothing was too much trouble. For a Brit he has the distinct advantage of being English and can help with ski passes to restaurant bookings without a problem.
The facilities in the chalet are very clean and serviceable.
Thank you very much for your lovely review, and I must stay I very much enjoyed the time we spent together. I hope to see you here again in the near future, perhaps next time to experience the summer mountain biking and white water rafting.
