Description

Chalet Orshanti is a fantastic chalet packed with luxury facilities situated on a peaceful track overlooking Plagne 1800. The Chalet consists of 9 bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities and sleeps a maximum of 21 people. Orshanti is one of the only chalets in Plagne 1800 to boast both a super high tech hot tub and a Sauna as well as a Full HD 10 Seater real Cinema!

The living area is spacious and lofty and even includes a large mezzanine which we are hoping to convert into a kids/chill out area for next season. There is a large ski and boot room with heated boot warmers and there are 3 huge hot water tanks which are capable of storing over 3 days of hot water, ensuring that it will never run out regardless of how long our guests wish to spend in the shower after a day on the slopes.

In normal snow conditions it is possible to ski directly from Chalet Orshanti with just a couple of minutes walk to get back at the end of the day. It is also just 2 minutes walk from the free

Location description from owner

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

Last season was our 2nd year of operation but due to the relocation from Morzine to La Plagne, it felt like a whole new and wonderful ball game. We now had the convenience of piste side and town centre location, so no more transporting guests to and from lifts/bars/restaurants on a daily basis. We also now had the benefit of high altitude, snow sure slopes with 70% of the ski area above 2000m including the amazing Bellecote Glacier offering skiing up to a whopping 3250m!
In all fairness, the move was a slight gamble, given our initial lack of familiarity with the resort and ski area but the gamble paid unquestionable dividends. We enjoyed the best snow season for more than 60 years with over 6 metres of snowfall by the end of January alone! The pistes seem in limitless supply and are extremely varied with challenging high altitude blacks through to gentle, tree lined blues down to the villages of Montalbert , Monchavin and Les Coches. We also found, to our delight, that la Plagne offers without doubt the best and most extensive off piste terrain that I, and indeed everyone who stayed with us had ever encountered. It seemed like we were discovering new, safe stashes every day throughout the season and that, coupled with fantastic sunny weather for the majority of days made it the best 5 months of skiing and boarding of our lives. The resort also links with the equally vast area of Les Arcs which can be accessed via the gargantuan double decker cable car that is the 'Vanoise Express' which was built in 2003, doubling the skiable area covered by the Paradiski lift pass.
The village of Plagne 1800, where the chalet is situated, has 3 bars and at least 4 quality restaurants, all within a few minutes stroll of the Chalet and each has its own style and character. 'La Mine', our local bar, as the name suggests, is stacked with mine themed character and even has an old mine cart track running across the floor with authentic mine carts making up the tables. Drinks are very reasonably priced for an alpine bar and they have live music and/or DJs most nights during the season. Just around the corner is the 'Bobsleigh bar' which was the main hangout for the seasonaires due to low prices and live Sky Sports. Just up the road from there is 'Mama Mia's', a quirky and very French little Pizza restaurant and bar run by the hilarious Daniel and Xavier the pizza dude. This was a popular destination for our guests on chef's day off due to the reasonable prices and vibrant atmosphere. Just opposite the chalet there are two more restaurants, 'La Loup Blanc' which is great for a beer in the sun en route back to the chalet and 'Le Petit Chaperon Rouge' (Little red riding hood), which serves excellent Savoyard cuisine, again, very popular with our guests.
Just up the road is Plagne Centre, which is the main focal point of the resort and is packed full of shops, bars and restaurants. 'Scotty's' bar is right next to the piste and is very popular with the Brits for its simple yet quality menu, live sports and live music. We often found ourselves dancing on the tables with guests and friends alike on a Wednesday afternoon after a day's riding. Our favourite bar is without doubt 'The Mouth' in Plagne Centre as the drinks are cheap, the bar staff and owners are awesome people and great fun and they are constantly putting on fun events and nights including A DJ night on a Tuesday night, which always goes off, karaoke on a Thursday and the infamous Seasonaire Awards in April. There is a bus service which runs until around 1am to ensure that everyone gets home safely after a few drinks.
There are dozens of great restaurants on the mountain including 'La Bergerie', just above Plagne Centre which is always fun and keeps the sun until late, La 'Grande Rochette', right on the Peak above Plagne Centre and with stunning 360 degree panoramic views and excellent food.
Perhaps the thing that really makes La Plagne stand out above any other French resort is the Olympic Bobsleigh track (http://www.la-plagne.com/fr/hiver/decouverte-plagne/les-la-plagne-plagne/bobsleigh-plagne.html) with is located 2 minutes down the road from the chalet and is the only one in France that is open to the public. There are 3 different options ranging from the 'Bob Raft', in which four people are sent down the track together reaching speeds of up to 80km/h. For those who seek an even bigger thrill there is the 'mono bob' in which you are sent down the track lying solo in a single man bob reaching up to 100km/h. As if this wasn't enough there is a 3rd option, the 'Taxi Bob' in which 3 of you are placed in a proper Olympic bobsleigh with a professional driver and this bad boy achieves speeds of up to 124km/h and 3gs of G-force! It really is an amazing experience and like nothing else I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying.
So come see us and experience the joys of La Plagne and Alpoholics first hand!
