We really enjoyed our stay at Sapiniere. The views are stunning and there are open fields behind so you can get out and walk or sledge really easily. BarrelliI Ski run a group of chalets with one for the staff so you have help close by but no-one living in your chalet which is perfect. The team are relaxed and friendly. The facilities are great, more than half our party are kids so having a play area, games room and pool was brilliant. The view from the pool is amazing. It would have been handy to have a box of toys for young children and something the team could provide very easily.. The food was very good but the children’s menu was a bit basic and it would have been nice to see more fruit and veg offered with a variation on ice cream for dessert.
The town is pretty and has a few nice restaurants, supermarket, chemist etc. The walk to the lift is up a steep hill. There is a series of steps at the top making it a challenge with a pushchair. There was another way but it was apparently a half hour walk rather than 15 minutes( I didn’t try it). The skiing in Champagny is great and La Plagne is vast, we didn’t get close to exploring everything. The queues for the telecasting first thing are long but even though it was half term we found the slopes not overcrowded We had a fractured wrist and this was handled super quickly and easily at the local medical centre ( X-ray, cast and out in under half an hour!). The Barelli Ski team has relationship with the ski shop next to the lift where you can leave your skis ( you would not want to get them up and down that hill). Getting 5 adults and 6 kids fitted up in this tiny shop was pretty hideous and took over 2 hours.
Overall, I’d rate this Chalet very highly and we look forward to visiting again
Sunny, spacious savoyarde chalet
We had an amazing stay, the skiing conditions were perfect, the Barrelli Ski staff were delightful and the food absolutely delicious! We were very well looked after, nothing was too much trouble, just don't challenge Mike to a table tennis game!! The on site facilities are amazing, in particular the swimming pool with the incredible views across the valley. The ski hire shop Barrelli Ski recommended were also very good and the free overnight equipment storage makes walking to and from the chalet a piece of cake. The walk up hill in the mornings isn't too bad either, we treated it as a gentle muscle warm up and you have a little mountain stream to keep you company.
The village is nice and compact and typically French - boulangeries and local artisan shops, a lovely old church with a leaning tower and plenty of bars to choose from - although we got to like the 'Code Bar' where a lot of the locals tended to hang out. The Timbale opposite was good for live music (although we got a Queen tribute act :) !!! They weren't that bad actually!
The skiing was excellent, Champagny links directly in with the La Plagne ski area and you can be in La Plagne Centre in just 20 mins (although we preferred staying over in the Champagny sector as it was a lot less busy). You can also be at the top of the Roche de Mio by catching just 4 lifts starting from Champagny village. We felt it was very well conected and the nursary slopes for the little'uns well placed at the top of the gondola. Our kids also loved Marie, their ESF Instructor. We have had some dodgy instructors with the ESF over the years, but when we were booking we were informed the Champagny ESF was very good. And we agree!
We had a fantastic holiday and will definitely recommend staying with Barrelli Ski to our friends and family. Hope to see you next year.
Lovely Savoyard chalet with superb meals
Chalet Sapiniere is part of a small group of associated chalets which can be combined to provide extra accommodation if needed, as we did. Our group of 13 couldn't fit Sapiniere with the sleeping arrangements we required, but by also taking neighbouring Apartment Flocon we were very comfortable and could all fit round the table in Sapiniere for our meals. To access the skiing you have a 'warm up the muscles' walk to the gondola, picking up your hire skis, on the way, at the rental shop where you store boots and skis each day. Your lift passes are organised and waiting for you on arrival and all we had to do was add the extra insurance for slope emergencies. The food was tremendous; from hearty breakfasts to cake and tea for your return from the slopes to the superb evening meals, including very tasty alternatives for our 'veggie'. We were asked to vote for our favourite dishes at the end of our trip and the votes were fairly evenly spread! The wood burning fire in the seating area gave a cheery glow to add to the underfloor heating so toes warmed up nicely while having preprandial drinkies. Bedrooms are comfortable and having a tumble dryer and washing machine available is a useful addition. Sauna, hot tub and pool were used by some of our party and Steve tells me the 'bracing' temperature of the pool has been resolved but was great for after ski wind downs. Finally the staff. We had a warm welcome and introductions to all the 'saisoner/res'. Josh was running the show and nothing was too much trouble. The chefs, Torrie and Kiki produced the wonderful meals and cakes including my birthday cake! Bravo. This was our second visit to the complex and is not the last as we have booked again for next season!’
Warm welcome - amazing team work
From the very start, Chalet Sapiniere and the amazing Barrelli Ski team worked hard to make each of us feel welcome, fully engaged in making our holiday easy and enjoyable, 100% achieved - Thank you Team Sapiniere.
Our food was prepared and delivered professionally – can honestly say, there was not one choice on the menu that I didn’t like, dinner times were yummy (as were the daily cakes).
The property was warm, cosy and well maintained. There was plenty of room for each of us. I really enjoyed relaxing in the Pool, Sauna and Hot Tub after a full day on the slopes.
Chalet Sapiniere, is located in a great spot for easy access to all facilities in the town and the lift up to the slopes.
Amazing team work - each member of the team brought an individual skill/approach to our holiday, yet, the whole team united to deliver fantastic service throughout - customer service was defiantly at the heart of what you do - a big thank you from me - you made our holiday even more enjoyable :)
1 time fra Chambery lufthavn, 2. 5 timer fra Genève lufthavn, 3 timer fra Lyon lufthavn og bare 20 minutter fra Moutiers jernbanestasjon, er Champagny en Vanoise et autentisk landsbyskianlegg direkte knyttet til det enorme skiområdet Paradiski (La Plagne og Les Arcs ). Det er også bare en 15 minutters kjøretur fra La Tania, Courchevel og de 3 dalene. Hytta ligger bare 400 meter fra løyper og heiser og 350 meter fra sentrum av byen, med alle dens barer, kafeer, restauranter og butikker. Ved foten av skiheisen er skiutleiebutikken vi bruker, hvor du kan forlate alt skiutstyret ditt, slik at du kan gå til og fra hytta i vanlige sko.
