The location is amazing providing stunning views from the chalet. The chalet is very comfortable.Owners Andy and Liza couldn't do more to help you make the most of your stay.

I don’t normally do reviews, but for this chalet I had to make an exception.

What better way to start your day than breakfast with a view of the mountains and the sun just hitting the top of Mont Blanc.

Tremendous. Nothing too much trouble. Transfers, ski passes, anything you want help with, Liza’s an expert.

Excellent food, relaxing environment, dropped off and picked up at the lifts. The most difficult thing you’ll have to do, is decide whether to go left to Les Arc or right to La Plagne. Both ski areas are easily accessed from this location.

“Amazing,amazing,amazing”
Reviewed 27 June 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Wasn't going to write a review as wanted to keep this place a secret but that wouldn't be fair.
If like me you research everything, check everything a million times, worry that you booking the right accomadation, flights, transfers, ski hire, lessons, lift passes and then research it all again. Well this is the place for you.
Lisa will help you with everything, point you in the right direction with who to use.
The highlight apart from the great snow and location was our hosts Dan and Bessie. So laid back but totally on it. Nothing to much trouble.
Ski hire fitted us out at the accomadation and they text us most days to see if anything needs changing. You have a 5 min transfer in morn on bus with Dan each morn when you ready and when you ready to come off the slopes just give Lisa or Dan a ring. Easy.
Great food and lots of it. Unlimited drinks, not just whilst you are eating dinner!
Highly recommended and hope to return next year

“Great week skiing with fantastic homely relaxing base.”

We were collected and welcomed by Dan and Bess - from the start and throughout the week, we were made to feel at home in a refreshingly relaxed atmosphere. Dan and Bess delivered an exceptional service, making the very hard work they put into our week at all times look effortless.
The accommodation was very homely and we were also fortunate enough to be sharing with a great group of friendly and sociable skiers. The top floor was open plan and a great meeting place at the end of the day for all the guests and a beer or two.
Though the chalet is not ski in or out, we were taken by mini bus to the lift whenever we were ready and collected promptly when we were done. No walking or carrying to worry about. Ski and boot room below the chalet with good drying facilities for boots.

FOOD: Each day we were presented with a different freshly baked cake while drinks, including tea and coffee were available at all times. Breakfast catered well for all of us, including bacon and eggs cooked however you liked them.
Dinner in the evening however was exceptional! Each night three courses cooked to perfection .... demonstrated by the silence which often fell across the table when first served until the silence was broken by very sincere comments of appreciation. Each night a very different menu - more than enough for all following a full day on the slopes and very well received. The evening meal was genuinely something to look forward to each day.

We thank Dan and Bess for a great week and Lisa for also making us so welcome and at home in their chalet.

A superb weeks skiing in La Plagne, staying at La Portette. Thanks to Liza for arranging lift passes, transport options etc, made booking very easy. The chalet is a fantastic place to stay, home from home. The Hosts, Bessie and Dan were exceptional. Always smiling, providing local knowledge, going that extra mile to please, nothing was to much trouble for them.The food they provided was just amazing both in quality and variety, the Roquefort tart being one of my personal favourites. Overall, a perfect week, made even better by blue skies and great snow.
