The apartment was quite small but well decorated and very warm. Ski storage was ok. Well signed for those arriving late. Overall=good.
Apartment's kitchen area is very small, no oven just two hot plates. No towels. General areas not clean. Hot tub looked like the whole French Rugby team had just finished their post match bath, so got out quick. Post-stay cleaning doesn't seem to be included in price. The Manager put notes on door and in rooms saying he expected apartment left "perfectly clean" or there would be a charge/fine of 75-150 euros (pity his own areas weren't as clean). This made us quite angry and we were determined to avoid this and cleaned the whole place before we left.
The room was perfect; impressive fold out bed in the very nicely shaped living room. The breakfast corner was great for eating and reading. Very good kitchen, beatiful view outside the windows. Also, the balcony was lovely. The Chalet d'Anaïte has a fabulous location. It's a 3 minute walk to the Montchavin-Les Coches ski-lift (and you can actually ski right back to the hotel if you know where to go off piste at the right moment.. otherwise, skiing back to 5 minute distance is easy and fun). Lastly, I thought the La Plagne (part of Paradiski) area was amazing with many kinds of routes (I loved the forrest route to Chambery, and all the routes coming down to the Verdons Sud lift) The area is very pricey though: a day pass is about €40.
Room for improvement: the (nice and helpful) staff should be able to speak better English (or at least slower French). Personally, I'd have liked the blankets to be heavier than the thin fleece ones they provide. You should bring your own towel, otherwise they can provide a set for €`10.
We booked 1 bedroom apartment for 2 weeks and it was confirmed. Shortly after that hotel contacted us and informed that there was an overbooking and 1 bedroom was only available for 1 week of our stay and offered studio for another week. We were not happy but had to accept it.
It was everything perfect. Ours was a small apartment with a sofa bed so little space was left when opening it.But it was defenitely worth the price both for the details with which the apartment was designed and for the location.
The door giving to the garden didn't close well so we were a bit worried during the night that someone could easily come in. Remember to take your own towels with you because they are not included in the price. They cost 10 Euro each.
No frills but nice bar, good location and excellent value for money
Almost ski-in ski-out position, nice refurbished apartment, spa
Being charged €100 for cleaning of the apartment for a 4-day stay. A 7-day stay a month earlier in the more upmarket resort of St Anton in a higher standard hotel only cost us €60 for cleaning.
