This warm and welcoming traditional chalet is situated in a tranquil area of La Plagne 1800. A very short walk away from the slopes or to the free shuttle bus stop which takes you to Plagne Centre and beyond.
The interior has been decorated in a traditional style using timber and bright fabrics. The main living space is open plan and situated on the second floor so you can enjoy the stunning mountain scenery from an elevated position whilst enjoying a drink with friends and family. The living area has a comfortable set of armchairs and a sofa where you can stretch out and relax next to the log fireplace. The large dining table is set back from the sitting area and runs parallel to the kitchen where your hosts will be preparing your delicious meals. The room has access to a spacious balcony which is a great spot on sunny days to enjoy a well-deserved cup of tea and slice of cake in the afternoons.
After a full day on the slopes you can look forward to returning to chalet and heating yourself through to the bone in the sauna, soothing any aching muscles. There is also a TV and DVD player so you can switch off in front of a film or make use of the iPod dock so you can chillout to your favourite tunes. WiFi access is also available throughout the chalet meaning you can easily keep up with friends and family at home.
The chalet also features a ski room where you can store all your equipment without it taking over your living space and there are also boot warmers so you can easily slide on your ski boots each morning and have toasty toes!

This chalet is run by 'Will I Ski?' who is owned by Phoebe and Charlie, two veterans of the ski industry, having previously hosted chalets, managed resorts and hotels and even sold ski holidays. As a result, they understand and listen to their customers. They offer a unique personal touch that large operators are unable to guarantee and aim to deliver a flexible service that will surpass your expectations.
The chalet is let on a catered basis and food is very important to the owners. You can look forward to the following:
- Breakfast: The most important meal of the day, each morning a choice of French bread, pastries, condiments and cereals are available. Not to mention a complete full English fry up. They will do their best to provide most things. Fancy pancakes? They’ll make you some.
- Afternoon tea: Phoebe, your host, loves a good cake and luckily she can’t eat the whole thing to herself. Each day when you return from the slopes a freshly baked cake that could rival Mary Berry will be waiting for you.
- Dinner: A 4-course evening meal served with a choice of free flowing wine. Each evening you will receive a starter, main course and dessert followed by a cheese board, tea and coffee.
- Children’s High Tea: Children’s high tea is also available upon request. They can feed the little ones at an earlier time of your choosing.

Phoebe and Charlie start your day with a full spread for breakfast. Upon your return from a busy day skiing in the mountains, afternoon tea and snacks are provided followed by a 3 course meal in the evening. Their menu is varied and delicious. Phoebe and Charlie make you feel at home and have an amazing attention to detail. They know the area and have many suggestions and recommendations for the slopes and nearby restaurants. We had the most amazing week of skiing, relaxing and food. Thank you for making our 2nd honeymoon so special. We hope you'd have us to stay again! X" - Trip Advisor
- "Charlie and Phoebe are fantastic hosts, they provide a personalised ski holiday and the most incredible food, being a coeliac I am a pain to cater for, but Charlie and Phoebe provided a brilliant menu. The chalet is homely and the rooms are spotless and comfortable. The skiing in La Plagne is brilliant and the chalet is so close to the slopes. As a family holiday this is everything we wanted it to be and we will be booking up again for next year!" - Trip Advisor

The Vanoise National park is on the doorstep and you can see Mont Blanc from teh higest parts of resort on a clear day.
Family friendly 1800 offers a small, beginners ski area, where lessons take place, whilst the Melezes and 1800 chairlifts connect the village with the rest of the resort via Plagne Centre and Aime 2000 respectively. The runs back into the village from the surrounding area are a mixture of reds and blues offering wide highway pistes and narrower winding ones, these runs can become busy and somewhat messy in peak season as they are high traffic areas, but with care and a little off-piste can provide access to – or close to most accommodation.

Atmospheric La Mine, hung with old mining equipment and paraphernalia is the undisputed centre of 1800’s nightlife, providing a warm welcome to locals, tourists and seasonaires alike. The staff are friendly, the beer is good, the live music is loud and there’s always something going on, you might find them hosting a quarter pipe and rail jam out on their front deck! For more nightlife you’d have to head to out to the other villages, easy to do as the shuttle buses run until after midnight and the good news is if you miss the last one from Plagne Centre at least it’s a down hill walk (or sledge) home.
