Everything was great, I honestly can’t fault our family holiday here! Maybe I shouldn’t recommend it so that we can go back and enjoy it again… Location is incredibly central, and you can ski in and out. I really liked the food, my wife’s a vegetarian and she didn’t have any problems. + more

Overall the hotel has a good site on the piste. You walk in under the hotel and then up into it. Any level of skier could ski out and you’re 2 minutes from the centre of Belle Plagne. There are 5-6 buildings in a row on the piste, with slopes on either side, so all rooms looked out to the piste. It was clean... + more

I had a nice double bed and balcony, bath and shower. The food could have been a bit more wholesome and better quality. It was very easy to get to the slopes as well as being very close to the centre. It’s not a picturesque village but having said that it was worth it for the skiing. + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Hotel Turquoise description

The Turquoise couldn't be more perfectly situated. It sits right on the gentle Belle Plagne slopes meaning skiing from and to the door is a breeze. There are two lifts all within a few minutes walk or ski/board too. The closest is a drag lift just 100m away, but the main Bellecôte gondola is only 150m from the hotel.

There's a fresh feel to this chalet hotel with contemporary yet comfortable furniture. The open-plan bar and dining area provide a great setting for re-telling your day's exploits with a well-earned drink. Alternatively, grab your glass and head to the terrace for some fresh mountain air and fantastic views.

Take a stroll up the slope to the heart of Belle Plagne (200m away) and you'll find a good choice of small restaurants and bars offering regional specialities. There's also the usual tourist shops where you can stock up on supplies and holiday memorabilia! Or for even more choice, hop on the cable car (also 200m away) to neighbouring Plagne Bellecôte. It runs right up until midnight.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Hotel Turquoise

Our chalet board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Breakfast is a fairly extensive affair with cooked and continental options every day. Your daily afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.

Evening meals are a three-course set-menu with regionally inspired dishes and served with complimentary wine, all followed by fresh coffee. We provide evening meals on six nights a week leaving you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening.

We update Chalet Hotel Turquoise'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.

Paradiski ski area Ski in, ski out High altitude skiing

A fabulous all-rounder: ski the Paradiski’s wonderful mix of tree-lined trails, knee-deep off piste and wide open cruisers, before returning to whichever purpose built village or age-old hamlet you’re staying in. La Plagne’s easily one of Europe’s best ski resorts and one we visit again and again.

In the Savoie region of the French Alps, La Plagne was established in the early sixties and now consists of 11 villages: 7 purpose built and 4 traditional. 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 low ridge to th...
There are plenty of nursery slopes with access to free beginner lifts for those new to skiing. This is complimented by a wide choice of different ski schools ready to cater to your particular needs. The slopes around the Belle Plagne area are particularly suitable for beginners, with the blue run linking Les Bauches to Montchavin, providing a manageable step up in difficulty from the nursery slopes. For those who class themselves as intermediate standard skiers this really is paradise. 77% of the runs are gra...
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. Spend the night in the Black Sheep Igloos, facing Mont Blanc, complete with a fondue meal and a morning wakeup call with breakfast. If this isn’t your idea of fun then ice climbing in Champagny and husky sledding are also on offer. One experience not to be missed is the bobsleigh track, used for Olympic training. There are a variety of ways you can choose to go down it, bu...

"Can't fault this La Plagne hotel"

David, Oxford
5/ out of 5
Everything was great, I honestly can’t fault our family holiday here! Maybe I shouldn’t recommend it so that we can go back and enjoy it again… Location is incredibly central, and you can ski in and out. I really liked the food, my wife’s a vegetarian and she didn’t have any problems.

"Disappointing meals"

Andy Thompson
3/ out of 5
Overall the hotel has a good site on the piste. You walk in under the hotel and then up into it. Any level of skier could ski out and you’re 2 minutes from the centre of Belle Plagne. There are 5-6 buildings in a row on the piste, with slopes on either side, so all rooms looked out to the piste. It was clean and tidy. Rooms were tiny, with tiny toilets (like an aircraft toilet) and tiny bathrooms. The staff were great and very helpful, but the chef wasn’t good… Food was terrible and amateurish. There were lots of people staying there and no one was happy with the meals. Improving the food by just 15% would have been excellent. They served ice cold meatballs, which even as a starter should be hot. If they did pork, it would be pork for starter, pork for main, pudding…. One day when they did a quiz with nice things on the menu... Baked camembert for starter (which was cold), a main course and then cheese again after. It just wasn’t very well planned or pulled off.

"Wouldn't stay here again, bad food and management"

Liked La Plagne and have booked a return trip there, but not at the Turquoise, we wouldn’t stay there again. The food was absolutely dreadful, to the extent that children and adults alike couldn’t eat it. Not the manager, but the other staff were brilliant and we couldn’t fault them – a particular mention to a guy called Sam who was almost the highlight of our holiday (at one point his manager told him off for talking to us, which shouldn’t have happened when he was being so brilliant). The rooms and the bathrooms were clean.
