Chalet Marmotte

La Plagne - Plagne 1800, Paradiski, France: catered, sleeps up to 13 The Lovely Chalet Company is a small, Independent Company and as Owners and Hosts, we can afford to be different!

Chalet Marmotte

Chalet Marmotte is a fully catered chalet. Newly renovated and recently awarded 4 Stars, our stunning traditional alpine catered chalet in Plagne 1800 has the WOW factor; it has 5 ensuite bedrooms and sleeps up to 13. We have styled and decorated Chalet Marmotte to a very high standard with a vintage, modern rustic feel, including lovely inherited pieces and delightful vintage finds collected over many years. Boasting underfloor heating, a wood burner, comfy sofas and a hot tub we have created a wonderful cosy feel for you to enjoy.

Nestled on a quiet track in Plagne 1800 it has panoramic views across the village to Aime 2000. The Chalet is a short easy 4-5 minute walk to the piste, giving you swift access to the Mélèzes or 1800 chairlifts; there are bars, shops and restaurants very close to the chalet too.  The FREE shuttle bus stop is a minute's walk away and will drop you off in Plagne Centre or Belle Plagne, giving you many different options on where to begin your day's skiing. 

Owned and run by Julie and Rich Love, their business is aptly named The Lovely Chalet Company.  The chalet can be rented in Winter or Summer on an individual room or whole chalet basis.   

Chalet Marmotte is special, from the moment you open the door you will see we have thought of everything.  We renovated the Chalet in 2020, it was 10 years in the planning and we have put our heart and soul into making it the perfect winter (and summer) holiday accommodation. Unlike most of our competitors in La Plagne 1800, we own Chalet Marmotte and host the Chalet ourselves without any staff.  We live in La Plagne all year round, giving us a great insight into the resort, local businesses and many personalities we have come to know, so we can give you the best advice and recommendations during your holiday.


Let's give you a Chalet tour and start at the beginning!

There is parking for 2-3 cars on the driveway quite unusual in Plagne 1800; there is free parking nearby.

A purpose built ski locker on the driveway gives easy access for storage of skis/board on arrival/departure and at the start/end of the day's skiing.  

The entrance hall has boot warmers and ample hanging space for helmets and ski clothing.  

As you ascend the beautiful bespoke wooden staircase you are welcomed into the spectacular open plan living and dining area with full length windows offering stunning views. The wood burner gives the Chalet a wonderful cosy feel.

The living area offers comfy sofas with cushions and rugs to snuggle under, the dining area has a huge bespoke table with views across the valley, a Sage Coffee Machine (apparently Rich makes the best coffee on the Mountain) and Julie's Mums Vintage Trolley offers guests a Gin Bar alongside a selection of Spirits to enjoy as an Apéritif or Digestif to complement the evening meal.    

French doors lead onto the large wraparound balcony overlooking the deck with an 8 person hot tub and  beautiful views for guests to enjoy.

Chalet Marmotte has 5 ensuite bedrooms, all beautifully decorated in the same style and dressed with vintage finds offering all guests the same standard and experience.  The ensuite bathrooms each have a waterfall shower (except the single room), a wash basin, toilet and a heated towel rail. Each bedroom is dressed with luxury bed linen, towels and dressing gowns from The White Company and Laura Ashley.  

Bedroom 1 - a delightful twin bedroom with views across to Aime La Plagne.  

Bedroom 2 - one of our Family Rooms, with twin beds and a bunk bed.  The beautifully bespoke beds were made by our Carpenter, the kids love sleeping in the bunk beds with their own light, charging socket and shelf for the all important electronics.  The spacious bedroom has access to the balcony with seating outside for guests to enjoy the view and the afternoon sun.  

Bedroom 3 - Adjacent to Bedroom 2, it offers the same features as Bedroom 2 but is a slightly smaller room.

Bedroom 4 - Our favourite room!  Nestled in the eaves with spectaculr panoramic views, the room has a very cosy feel with lovely vintage furniture.  

Bedroom 5 - Our single room is hugely poppular, an ideal room for teenagers or perfect for guests travelling alone who do not wish to pay a single supplement.  

The children will love the 4th floor Mezzanine area decked out with a rug and cushions, it has a mix of games, books and toys to enjoy, giving the adults space to enjoy the evening while the childen play together and is very popular with families.

Our website offers guests lots of information including childcare options, lessons and travel advice.  We have also recommended a number of local and trusted transfer companies for guests to use.  

Guests can order their lift passes from us and we will have them waiting for you on arrival!  Occasionally we receive Tour Operator discounts for guests to enjoy on low season weeks.  

We work in partnership with Oxygene Ski School who offer lessons, transport to and from the chalet (which is hugely poular with guests) and if you hire skis and boots from them too they will come to the chalet and fit them for you - also very popular.  We recommend a number of other boot and ski hire companies on our website.

We have skied in La Plagne for over 17 years and know the resort like the back of our hand, so we can give you lots of hints and tips of where to ski, where the best mountain restaurants and cafes are, and where to party!   You really will get the most out of your stay with The Lovely Chalet Company.
