Booked last minute and had a fantastic week in La Plagne over new year. Charlie and the Alpoholics team were very friendly, communicative and went out of their way to help whenever they could. We had 3 young children (11, 9, 8) and they loved the facilities for them in the chalet: video games in the snug upstairs and cinema room with Netflix and more in the basement.
To be wholly honest this is our third stay with Alpoholics. By this point it feels like we are old friends.
The company seems to employ people with the lovely personality's and go out of their way to help you best they can. You can read on their website all the stuff they offer. But it's all there when you arrive. As someone who is a repeat customer it gets better every year. Any minor little things the owner loves to hear about and is very reactive to. From your ski's don't fit right and being on the phone for you or getting you something to do in the evening. Or even in the very rare case something goes wrong it is fixed as quickly as possible and you are updated all the way.
This is all without mentioning the cool factor (or fleek, or nang, or peng, whatever the kids are calling it these days). Alpoholics is well connected and they seem to know everyone. All the cool places to go, links with a load of top brands. To being directly involved with one of the top Apres on the mountain. Wednesday 2.30pm at La Bergerie Cafe. Be there or be Square.
All in all another top snowboard holiday. Even if it was uncharacteristically un snowy the snow shapers did a hell of a job keeping us riding.
Stayed in the Orshanti chalet, the staff were brilliant, catered to our every need.loved it so much that we've booked for next Christmas.
18 family and friends aged from 12 to 79 spent a magical Christmas at the chalet Orshanti. It's in a great location,with access to a piste,a short walk away,and buses every 15 mins,perfect for the non skiers. The chalet is fabulous clean and charming with a wonderful rustic atmosphere. The beds are very comfortable and there was always loads of hot water for the showers. We all loved the hot tub, the sauna seemed to go down particularly well with the males of the group while the cinema and games snug was a great hit with the teenagers ! The most impressive thing about the holiday are the team of people who run the chalet. They were all delightful, always bubbly and happy, hard working and patient, even with the most tiresome questions. The fully catered chalet provides the most delicious food all home cooked, by their wonderful chef. Breakfast was great and the afternoon cake devoured with ferocity,especially by the hungry skiers. Jason who deals with ski and snowboarding queries spent a huge amount of time with the snowboarders discussing boards available and their attributes. Charlie who runs the company was great to deal with,always prompt with emails and solutions to queries. We had a fantastic holiday and would like to thank the team who were all fabulous. We are booking for next Christmas !
We stayed for 1 week at the end of the season. We had great a great time and we were really well looked after. I can not fault this chalet at all. Staff were professional at all times, the food was delicious and plentiful. From the cooked breakfast to a 3 course dinner in the evening it was just what we needed after a hard day on skis. Forgot to mention there was a cake waiting at tea time.... The chalet catered for 2 birthdays effortlessly and time just flew by! Rooms were adequate, spacious and comfortable, but most of the time was spent in the sauna, cinema, hot tub or just playing games in the sitting room. Chalet was spotlessly clean and neat and tidy at all times, difficult when everyone was in party mode! Unlike other chalets we have been to, there really was space for 20 people and for everyone to be comfortable and not on top of each other.
