Chalet Papillon 1 Reviews
We were blessed with a fantastic week of sunny weather during which the snow held up surprisingly well. There were hardly any queues despite it being a UK-wide half term and we found enough variety of slopes to keep us entertained for the week. The chalet, Papillon 1, was virtually ski-in-ski -out, just a short 40m walk up the hill each morning and crossing the road at the end of the day. The chalet itself was clean, comfortable and welcoming with great food and a very friendly and efficient host in Jenny. Our room was relatively compact and with a good bathroom - a lovely powerful shower! The living area was also comfy and very warm - we didn't need the fire all week. It felt like perhaps the sofas were showing their age a bit but basically were fine. I would have liked to check out Les Eucherts a bit more - we went to the ice hockey match which was great, but didn't get to go to any bars. La Rosiere itself is a lovely little village where we had a great dinner at Les Marmots. All up, a really great week.
Apres Ski: 4/5
Accommodation & Value: 4/5
We had such a lovely stay at Papillon 1 in La Rosiere. The beds were very comfortable and the bath/shower was great after a days hard skiing (I'd personally ask for the corner bedroom on the lower ground as we had the best views!) Our chalet hosts, Jenny and Keiron, were amazing! Being a vegetarian and Dairy free I was worried I'd be eating bland food all week but the two went over and above to accommodate me and the food was brilliant! The resort, though small, can accommodate all levels. My husband, a keen off-piste skier, found many runs that he could ski on, whilst I - an intermediate skier, was happy going down the pisted Blues and Reds (I even managed a few blacks!) Being so close to the Italian border really does switch up the day. You could ski the morning in Italy and make it back for apres ski in France. We had a fantastic time and will definitely travel with Ski Beat / Iglu again.
