Beautiful location; well equipped chalet not quite ski in ski out; but not bad;everything as accuratelydescribed on website. Would happily have returned year after year, all our party were agreed on this; had it not been for a petty dispute over cleaning. In 30 years of going on this type of holiday we had never had an issue with cleaning. In summary we were charged 80 euros (subsequently refunded after protest) which completely soured our holiday experience; after being told we 'hadn't had time to clean afterall.' It appears as we didn't pay the additional fee for a 'professional clean' any reason was going to be saught to impose this charge. Pictures were sent to us as evidence which were laughable. Indeed there was an argument to say the apartment was cleaner on arrival than departure. We were supposed to provide clearly ' a professional clean' with a broken vacuum cleaner (no mop for a tiled accommodation) 1 miniscule cloth and the cheapest multipurpose cleaner. The cinic in me would suggest that was intentionally done, I will not be embarking on my next holiday or any other with a mop and a battery of cleaning products. All of this is such a shame; as had the cleaning been included in the price (rather than an optional extra) we would have happily paid as the appartment represented good value for money.
Stayed here in February half term. The chalet is beautiful, very well equipped and there is a hot tub outside with a view of the mountains (and sauna although we didn't use that). Karen the owner is lovely and very helpful if there are any questions. The skiing is extensive and fabulous, it's a very short yomp from the chalet to the nearby blue run although a little steep, the alternative is to walk down the steps and 100m down the road and pick up the same run. The free shuttle bus to the village also runs from this spot. Highly recommended
We stayed here for a week during February and could not have been made more welcome. Karen was always on hand to help us and even made sure that our dinner was in the oven and waiting for us on our arrival from Geneva airport. The shopping service was a god-send as was the breakfast delivery service they have arranged with the local bakery. Karen and Matt will also deliver meals when you don't want to cook and cakes every day for tea - just what you need with hungary teenagers to look after. The hot tub has a roof so you can soak whilst it snows but has lovely views down the valley too. The chalet is just beside the piste so you really can ski in and out :)
Whilst you're there we highly recommend the 3 glaciers restaurant - it's the same place you hire the skis and you wouldn't expect it - but the food was soooo good - and not (for a welcome change) savoyard at all
We had a great week in the apartment which was at the top of Montchavin village. It is quite a trek to the shops, although it was possible to ski with a rucksack of food from nearby Le Coches. The rental was very clean and tidy and there are beautiful views of the surrounding countryside but a little further from the slopes than I would have liked. It is possible to ski back to the apartment following a track through the wood but it was not ideal for inexperienced skiers. On the whole we had an excellent week in high quality accommodation.

Excellent chalet with very helpful hosting from Karen & Matt. Mixed group of 9 friends reunited from across the globe in picturesque location. Excellent ski in ski out spot allowing full day skiing at Les arcs & la plagne. Hot tub & sauna have become a must for next year. We had an eat in finale with Matt's raclette which was superb & a perfect finish to the week. Would advise bringing some of your own essentials, eg. Seasoning, oil, tea towels & extra towels. Dishwasher was a bonus! Would recommend arranging direct transfer from airports as taxis from the valley are expensive, but Matt & Karen were very helpful in organising this.
Highlight might have been the freshly delivered croissants every morning. Would highly recommend!
