I stayed with my sister in Chalet Orshanti in March 2015. From start to finish, this holiday was faultless. We were met by one of the Alpoholics team in the airport and taken to our transfer coach, which was very comfortable and prompt.
On arrival to the chalet we were greeted by our fantastic host and chef. The chalet was impeccably clean and the facilities were brilliant. The food throughout the week was excellent - we particularly enjoyed the 3 course evening meals, which were consistently the standard of an excellent restaurant. The other guests that we met in the chalet were a pleasure to meet - many of whom were back for their 3rd or 4th year.
Something that really stood out to me was the incredible range of apres-ski activities available to all ages and abilities in La Plagne. We enjoyed a husky sled ride, a visit to the ice caves at the top of the glacier as well as an unforgettable skidoo ride across the villages of La Plagne at sunset. This was made even more enjoyable by returning to the huge hot tub on the terrace each night. Next year we will be back to have a go on the olympic bobsleigh track, give air boarding a go and maybe even try paragliding (if we're brave enough on the day!!). It seems that you don't even need to ski to have fun in La Plagne!!
All in all, we had a fantastic holiday that hugely exceeded any expectations we had. The staff were great and really looked after our every need, the chalet was brilliant, the food was amazing and the ski area is HUGE! We will be returning next year... with the whole family!
Thank you so much Alpoholics :)

Amazing views, location, helpfulness of staff and great food. Would definitely recommend! A lot of work goes into this company to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible for guests.
As we were first time skiers, the staff were very helpful in showing us how it all works.
Chalet is very well equipped, the rooms and clean and the food was excellent. The hot tub on the deck is a very nice touch, perfect for after a nice days skiing, or even before! I'd definitely recommend staying here, Charlie and his team are fantastic
So the team at alpoholics put on a great show! Everything you could need is provided, and after a cold day on the hill a hot tub and sauna make for great times! Couple that with great food and wine you've got a sure winner!
Will be back again without a doubt, In fact I was back again this season!
Stayed at Chalet Orchanti at the end of March and had a fab holiday.
The staff, host and owner made you feel welcome and at home right away and always there to help if you need them. The food was of an amazingly high standard and the homemade cakes were delicious! The wine was lovely too :) Oh and best bread and butter pudding in the world ever!!! And I'm an ex pastry chef! ;)
Topped off by a great bunch of people also staying at the chalet. A great mix of ages, and type of people. All friendly and relaxed.
Such an amazing chalet too, best I have stayed in, very spacious and comfortable, cannot fault it, everything you need and more. We were lucky enough to have the hot tub on the balcony outside our room which was an added bonus, such a nice way to ease the muscles after a day on the snow.
Great location too, couple of minutes walk to piste, I'm sure earlier in the season, you could pretty much ski in ski out.
Amazing selection of boards and skis for you to use as and when you want to, and if you need your own board or ski's waxed they can organise this to be done for you in no time at the chalet.
All in all a great holiday, would love to go back a bit earlier in the season next time and experience some of the lower down runs. La Plagne is a great ski area, and 1800 where we stayed has everything you need close by including a fantastic free bus service which goes everywhere you would need to go. I will definitely return :)
