We were staying in Chalet Sorbier which is open plan and so the chalet host is very much with the guests all the time that they are in the chalet, including when preparing meals. Fiona was easy to have around, always happy to chat but was never intrusive. A difficult balance, which she achieved with ease. + more

The Sorbier was OK. It wasn’t the best I’ve been to and certainly wasn’t as luxurious as I thought it may be. It’s a very small chalet, probably best for a family or close friends who had it as one occupancy. The actual rooms had no room in them whatsoever, only enough for a bed.

Fiona couldn't have done any-more. She was welcoming, extremely knowledgeable, an amazing cook and ensured we were made to feel at home from the second we arrived. We were delighted to see her again this year. She made our holiday! + more

Location - where is Chalet Sorbier

Chalet Sorbier is about 30m from the Plagne 1800 chairlift, your literally walk outside of your chalet and you can start your days skiing. The Plagne 1800 chairlift takes you out of the village up towards Plagne Aime 2000. From here you can ski directly back to Chalet Sorbier via the black Crete-cote run, alternatively you can ski back from Plagne Centre via the red "Les Mines" piste or blue "Jean-Marie" or "Lovatiere".

The "Chaperon Rouge" restaurant is a short walk across the piste, this is a cosy mountain restaurant with a roaring fire. Alternatively the Chalet Sorbier is a 5 minute walk from the village centre, which has a local supermarket and hire shops. For those off you who are looking for apres ski bars there are a few en-route to the village centre.

Dietary Requirements

We strive to ensure that your specific dietary requirements and preferences are catered for as best we can. Please let us know at least 14 days prior to your holiday start date, to ensure that this is possible. Our team can cater for special dietary requirements be they for medical reasons, religious reasons or simply personal preference. Our chalet hosts will be advised of these requirements in advance of your stay and every effort will be made to ensure that they are met. However, we cannot guarantee that certain ingredients will not be in the environment nor can we guarantee that cross-contamination will not occur.

Children's Food

Children aged 11 and under will be served High Tea at around 6pm. This is provided at no extra cost and ensures that your child's normal routine is not disturbed: soft drinks or milk are served with the meal. It also ensures that adults can enjoy their evening meal, which is served at 8pm. If you have booked a whole chalet then you can eat together - please speak to your chalet hosts on arrival.

The Festive Season

An Alpine chalet is a wonderful place to spend the festive season. We provide Christmas trees and decorations. On the day itself, you can look forward to aperitifs, turkey with all the trimmings, flaming Christmas pudding, mince pies, and of course, Christmas crackers. For New Year most of our resorts will have torch-lit descents, fireworks and other celebrations. Alternatively, you could just enjoy New Year's Eve dinner in your chalet with a glass or two of fizz.

We update Chalet Sorbier's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

In the French Alps' Savoie region, La Plagne was established in the early sixties and now consists of 11 villages: 7 purpose built villages and 4 traditional villages. The aptly named Plagne Centre at the heart of the resort is the main hub of shops, restaurants and après ski. Just underneath lies Plagne 1800, a cluster of chalets spread across a steep hillside. Higher up are Aime-la-Plagne, Plagne-Soleil and Plagne-Villages, all accessible via chairlifts from Plagne Centre. Plagne Bellecote rests over a l...
There are plenty of nursery slopes with access to free beginner lifts and a wide choice of different ski schools for those new to skiing. The slopes around the Belle Plagne area are particularly suitable for beginners. The blue run linking Les Bauches to Montchavin provides a manageable step up in difficulty from the nursery slopes. For those who class themselves as intermediate skiers, La Plagne is paradise. 77% of the runs are graded either blue or red. Particular favourites are the run from La Grand Roch...
It might not rival Val d'sere or Verbier for their wild party scenes, but this is an exceptional resort for unique après ski opportunities. Try snowmobiling at night, ice climbing in Champagny, husky sledding, paragliding, extreme tobogganing and more! One experience not to be missed is the bobsleigh track, used for Olympic training. There are various ways you can choose to go down it, but they are all guaranteed to give you a thrill as you will hurtle down at speeds ranging from 80 km/hr up to a lightening 120...

"Stayed in Chalet Sorbier in December 2013"

S. Gilchrist
4/ out of 5
We were staying in Chalet Sorbier which is open plan and so the chalet host is very much with the guests all the time that they are in the chalet, including when preparing meals. Fiona was easy to have around, always happy to chat but was never intrusive. A difficult balance, which she achieved with ease.

Very nice and well appointed chalet perfect for our family group and ideally situated for lifts and ski school.

"Best with sole occupancy"

Steve, Manchester
4/ out of 5
The Sorbier was OK. It wasn’t the best I’ve been to and certainly wasn’t as luxurious as I thought it may be. It’s a very small chalet, probably best for a family or close friends who had it as one occupancy. The actual rooms had no room in them whatsoever, only enough for a bed. One thing that was a constant pain what that it was cold and kept running out of hot water with 6 of us showering. We ended up having to get an engineer in. A good point about the chalet is its proximity to the piste, the location is an absolute winner. It’s right by the lift so truly does have a ski in / ski out situation. This is the reason we picked the Sorbier and it really is a magnificent feature of the place. The food was average chalet food. The beginning of our week was affected by the huge snowfall that closed roads and we ended up sleeping in a sports hall at the start of our holiday. We managed to get to resort quite early the following day but all things considered, the best way I can describe the week is that it was all a bit suboptimal.

"Fiona made our holiday!"
