Lucia is a very good hostess, that will to her outmost for your stay to be as good as possible. Her Chalet is very charming and close to the ski lift. It is also very warm and has everything you need for your stay. Courmayeur is a very nice town with good restaurants and nice little shops. Close to France and the airport of Milan. We traveled as a family, 2 parents and three kids age 20, 14 and 13. And can recommend it to anyone looking for a nice ski holiday.
The place has a unique position literally near the Dolonne lift, which makes it precious for skiers. But we had several problems a) with parking - during heavy snow you can't approach the house with the car, last 30 meters are strongly elevated; b) we experienced trouble sleeping, because the house is heated with pellets that give a lot of dust, I had to see doctor for my lungs and my allergic husband is still going through medical treatments for his astma and c) we couldn't really solve any problems, because the host was in Australia and her helpers spoke Italian only. In winter I would recommend this place to Italian speaking skiers under 1.60 cm without any breathing allergies and with strong lungs.
Thank You Masha for the oportunity to write a few obvious specificationsWhen roads are covered in heavy snow it is preferable to use chains and /or snowtyres.I did not specify this in my description as I thought it was rather logical, being Courmayeur a winter resort in the Alps, I am sorry.
Most chalets and hotels in Courmayeur have pellet stovesIn our chalet we also have an electrical heating system ,with individual radiators in each roomThe Pellet stove is an additional source of heat that we have regularly checked,, and that works very well when guests follow the instructions provided (as you have found, we live in the house written instructions in 3 languages: English, Italian, and French).
I do not live in the Chalet , and I often travel myself.For this reason there is a permanent caretaker, leaving near the chalet, always there when guests need her.She speaks Italian and French, and when needed she is assisted by me on the phone for translation into english.
I like keeping in touch with my guests, and My email and my phone number are always operative so that guest can( and do ) call me even for a little chat to get to know each other.
Last, but not least: attics of chalets in the mountains happen to have low roof.Mine is one of them, and, in fact,on two sides of one room in the attic the roof is low
The good news is that the bed is on the other side, and that the other 6 rooms can host very tall guest........provided that they are not taller that 2.7 metres .
Six of us had a fantastic holiday at Lucia's chalet. It's a lovely house - cosy as she says, but not squashed for 6 (or 7) people. Everything works well and the local lady who looks after the house is also helpful and charming. The chalet is close to the Dolonne ski lift, which is a real boon, and there's a cafe/restaurant close by (about 8 minutes walk). We can't recommend this place too highly. It's just perfect for a ski-ing break.
