Séjour très sympathique dans le chalet / appartement de Mechelle à Macot la Plagne ! La maison est chaleureuse, en particulier le feu, bienvenue après de longues journées de ski. Mechelle a été très attentive à ce que nous soyons bien installés.
Mieux vaut être équipé d'une voiture pour skier : il faut rouler environ 20 mn pour arriver à la Plagne centre. Mais le charme de Macot (et du chalet) est bien supérieur à celui des stations en hauteur. La cuisine est bien équipée (sinon n'hésitez pas à demander à Mechelle un ustensile absent...), et on tient à 6 sans problèmes (3 chambres de 2).
On conseille !
This had to have been one of the best ski vacations we've had in years, and it was all thanks to Mechelle and her hospitality.
Starting from the location; Macot La Plagne is a short 12 minute drive from a chairlift that takes you to Aime La Plagne which connects you to most of the major pistes of La Plagne. You can also drive to Montchavine - which is about a 15 minute drive from Macot - and ski to Les Arcs and the rest of the La Plagne Villages. Macot is a small and lovely village, not touristy at all but only 2 minutes drive to Aime (Michelle told us she and her family cycle there) where you can get everything you need for your vacation, from groceries to skiing equipment. 2 minutes walk from the apartment in Macot there's a nice convenience store and a wonderful french boulangerie. It is the perfect location to enjoy a ski vacation in La Plagne.
The apartment was amazing! It can hold up to 6 people comfortably, there were only three of us and we had loads of space to hang out. The living room has an authentic fireplace that really keeps the place warm and gives it an amazing home feeling. The kitchen will fit most people's needs in terms of cooking and making food, it has almost everything you need, including every spice imaginable, coffee, tea and more. If you'd rather have someone else cook for you, Mechelle's cooking are sublime. We Asked her to cook for us twice during our stay and had two wonderful evenings, including a three course meal, wine, and a cake waiting for us when we got back from skiing. You can also opt for the Italian restaurant up the street where we had an excellent reasonably priced meal.
Lastly, I wish every Airbnb host would be more like Mechelle. She is charming, sweet, and a lively high spirited host who always cared for our needs and created a great atmosphere whenever she was around. Her hospitality is the true added bonus of our stay and we would happily return to see her again.
Aaaah what a vacation to remember!!! Where do I begin? let me just tell you everything:
- Mechelle's is an absolute gem of person, easy going, tolerated our noise (we had musicians grooving almost every night), accommodated our additional guests with full amenities and made our stay worry free
- The chalet is elegantly decorated and absolutely cozy and welcoming, coming home every night after an active day of ski was a delight
- the place was well situated, we were at 10 to 15min from Ski slopes, and given the elevation of the ski slopes, we had best of both words: we were very close without the dread of living in the elevated mountains - trust me you don't want to rent on the mountains as you will feel the pressure at 2000 and 3000 m elevation where it's like being on a plane for days.
- We were also about 5 to 10min from shops and the Aime village, we had on day where it was so snowy we decided to stay at the chalet and the quick walk to the bakery for fresh croissant as well as strolling the village in the snow is both romantic and refreshing
- the only little constructive note to leave you with: we were a bunch of great cooks, and we had plenty of gourmet eating-in nights, as much as Mechelle had every kitchen utensil, supplies / spices you could possibly need, and so much fridge space to store food for 10 days for a family of 7, some of the pots were ready to retire and for good cooks that was noted.
In summary, excellent chalet in comfort and location, one of the best home owners I ever dealt with (I rent few times a year for vacations), great proximity from both ski slopes (without the dreaded elevations) and from the town (for those cooking aficionados).
I'm going back with the entire family again, if only to try our Mechelle gourmet meals, I can't wait. Rent this place and be ready for your best vacation in a while.
Cheers and Thank you Mechelle!
Mechelle is the best host ever! We were looking for a Chalet to go snowboarding in the La Plagne / 3 Valley Area and we found the perfect place @ Mechelle! Very cozy place with a nice chimeney to warm up your hearts and spirits, the rooms are fantastically decorated with an elegant Alpine touch. Oh an by the way, Mechelle happens to be a Chef so we felt in a Michelin star restaurant!! I also recommend her award winning tomato Soup and the champignons with cognac sauce!
We stayed there in 2 separate occassions since we liked it so much and I will definitelly stay there again with no hesitation!!
May I need to say more?? :))))
We had an amazing stay at Mechelles chalet! It was well beyond what we expected. There were hot croissaints, coffee and a variety of other breakfast items ready at whatever time. We wanted when we came home I surprised and happy to find the beds all made and room cleaned!!!! There was a large bathroom with bathtub which was so nice after a long day of skiing also a lovely fireplace to have a glass of wine or hot chocolate before dinner. Dinner was also a delight for our tastebuds!! (and we parisians are hard to please when it comes to food ; ) Every night we had a wonderful 3 course meal which was delicious and in spirit with the food of the region. We can`t thank Mechelle and her family enough for making our vacation a memorable one. We have already booked for next year!!!
