Catering staff and chalet are lovely. Looking after you very well and are putting the extra effort whenever asked. They've been doing their best with what they had.
I recommend not to take your ski passes with barelli as they charge on Bank card payment, so you end up more expensive than normal price. Manager Sarah did not make that clear during the bookings. She is very overwhelmed by her position, hopefully just a lack of experience...
Chalet is a bit far from the first ski lift departure, but let's say its a good leg warm up.
Downside is the menu I would say. You'd expect to eat more traditional savoyard dishes everyday, instead of a standard more "everyday" food. Dishes themselves were alright though.
For the price, guests could benefit from better quality products. (first price yogurts, juices, and cheap chocolate spreading poured in a genuine Nutella jar is just NOT OK)
We had a fabulous week in Champangny staying in Chalet Marmotte.
The chalet was warm and inviting with plenty of space for the whole group. We were looked after really well by Sarah the resort manager and the whole team making lift passes and ski hire seamless.
The chalet is conveniently located with just a short walk to ski shop and lifts. Champagny is a lovely small resort with a good selection of bars and shops we were there the first week of the season so it was really quiet which suited us fine.
The chalet had everything we needed with comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms and hot water! The communal area worked well and spent most evenings in here by the fire playing silly games. There was plenty of seating for everyone.
The chalet staff were amazing and we were very well looked after, cooked breakfast everyday, lovely cake in the afternoon and a delicious evening meal. A real treat.
The other facilities were the icing on the cake, having the pool, hot tubs and games room were an added bonus, but as we were so lucky with the snow we spent most of our time on the slopes. We had one non-skier in the group who really enjoyed her daily dip in the pool with a view.
Thank you Barelli Ski for a fantastic week and excellent service.
Chalet Marmotte is a great place for chilled skiing holiday with friends. The chalet is well equipped, homely and well maintained with great indoor and outdoor amenities (hot tub, pool, sauna, games room etc). However the staff are the clinching factor with great food, friendly services and plenty of advice about the resort and surrounding skiing. They take care of all the admin (lift passes, transfers etc) with trusted local partners so you can concentrate on the skiing.
I would strongly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a great skiing week and if you can take the whole chalet with friends or family even better.
Everything was perfect from the situation of the chalet (little village with stunning views across the valley), bedrooms & general areas (comfortable, stylish and homely), food (varied, plentiful & absolutely delicious), facilities (there is nothing better than soaking your weary muscles in an outdoor hot tub with stunning scenery all around) and the staff (friendly, efficient and so helpful). In fact it was my birthday when we were there & Kiki made me one of the most delicious chocolate birthday cakes I've ever eaten (that washed down with champagne was memorable). It was a fantastic holiday. If you want a piece of heaven - both to stay and ski you needn't look elsewhere.
Lovely chalet and great deals in ski shops. The staff really made the trip - they looked after us so well. The snow in champany was a little thin upon arrival but La Plagne and Les Arcs just next door were great.
