Four rooms in Les Granges du Soleil
La Plan – the right place for economical skiers. Of all the means of accommodation, apartments and chalets are dominated here, on which you can at least cook buckwheat brought with me and other porridges. True, we preferred to order freshly baked croissants for breakfast for 1.5 euros, and for lunch and dinner were purchased in the local supermarket Spar, where they wrapped right from the track. But the package of buckwheat somehow still disappeared.
The most common category in LA category is three stars, four are already luxurious accommodation at quite reasonable prices. Well, the five stars of the resort did not see how it seems and it seems that it does not really suffer from it. Even the most demanding tourists are quite pleased with the fact that there are. After all, the service in many four-star apartments are quite comparable to five strategic. For example, in our wonderful residence of Les Granges du Soleil 4 *, opened at the Plagne Soleil resort five years ago, running the famous French company CGH, there is a lobby with a game area for children, a reception, working every day, a ski repository (though without dryer for shoes), restaurant and spiritual spa ô des cimes. In addition, this year the range of four-star replenished: at the pleasant hotel Carlina in Belle Plagne, spacious apartments for large families and companies have appeared, and Hotel Le Cocoon has opened in Plagne 1800, offering seven cozy rooms and a fantastic view of Mont Blanc. Adding, of course, small but worthy.
But the residence in which we are located is able to take 600 guests at once. In her six, chalet buildings with romantic names – Celestine, Roseline, Delphine, etc. – Located 82 apartments, the most roomy of which – Duplex – is calculated at 12 people. But most of all here are the apartments with two and three bedrooms (at the same time in all living rooms there are two more beds), there are duplexes with four bedrooms on ten guests and cute apartments with mezzinist for romantic climbers (to get on the bed located under the ceiling , it is necessary to climb on the high-ended ladder). By the way, mezzanine is a pleasant guest bonus: a sleeping place at the top of the apartment is not included and can be used at the request of guests for free.
All residents of the residence are decorated in a single alpine style: a lot of local stone and wood (even the ultra-modern elevators of the well-known company Schneider are fully decorated with wood), in the evenings in the lobby, the real fireplace is lit. In apartments, a solid wooden furniture, among them and a massive dining table, lamp lamps have a nice perforation in the form of chips, skiers, cows and mountain scenes. At the same time, the kitchen is equipped with the latest technology: from the sensory ceramic plate with a brass cabinet to the dishwasher (a set of dishes is attached). For the full happiness of the urban resident there is free Wi-Fi, TV, hairdryer, heated towel rail, adjustable batteries and telephone. On prior request, small guests will serve children’s chairs and cribs.
We got a pleasant three-bedroom apartment with a luxurious balcony, where it was possible to relax in the day of day child sleep, squinting in the sun and watching skiers and snowboarders with a whistle with a whistle. On the days of Catania, we went down to the restaurant, located on the second floor, went out on its terrace, put on the equipment and moved down to the nearest lift – no extra movements and movements on additional transport: only on your two, fastened to ski or blackboard.
But the most beautiful thing that we managed to try in the residence of Les Granges du Soleil, this is a spa area. Very chamber, but not close, with a pleasant muffled light – the perfect place to complete the catal day. Saunas and Hamama are compactly located at the entrance, next to the shower, and the pool with water with a comfortable temperature was taken to the second floor (30°C), from which I don’t want to get out, and a couple of jacuzzi for lovers of magic bubbles and hot water (37°WITH). Children in the pools are allowed under the supervision of parents and, it should be noted, they really like it.
At the lower level, there is another paradise place – Procedural Cabinets ô des Cimes. This spa brand belonging to CGH is presented in almost all high-altitude residences that the company is managed and works on the basis of the famous French cosmetics Decleor. The spa menu has facial procedures (from 30-minute manipulations, fixing the Alpine tan, up to one and a half hours anti-aging program), massages (most popular – "Massage for champion" Different duration), programs for children and adolescents, procedures for two, wrapping, peelings, all types of hair removal and hair removal, manicure-pedicure and even makeup lessons.
My husband and I decided to try on a Spa program Shared Après-Ski Session for two, including 60 minutes of any massage from the menu. Husband, all day put records on the slope, chose the most popular The Champion Treatment – Sports massage of the whole body, Well, I chose a branded procedure ô des Cimes – a relaxing massage with flavored candles.
Two cute girls brought us into a small room with two couches and left to change clothes. Conveniently setting around on massage tables and covered by the punishment of our future benefactors with warm towels, we chatted in anticipation everybody. And here we finally returned our fairies. My high candlestick poured into my hand with a spout, poured a portion of warm oil, mixed with the imputy waxing, and began to rub this mixture into the skin, passing all the necessary zones. My body has become nice to smell chocolate, and I felt like a bantth bar on one of the paradise islands. Meanwhile, the masseuse of the collar began to knead the pontolic body of her husband: she seemed to have danced a certain ritual dance around him, deftly moving from the left blade to the right, squat when she wanted to work the spashed back and neck muscles as much as possible – in general, it was also on what to see.
But, to admit honestly, at some point we both turned off, so it would not be possible to describe further manipulations. It was just magical – such is our verdict for two. My skin after the massage was a tinsel silky and fragrant, that I endured my husband without end and asked me to sniff. And before bedtime even afraid to go into the shower so that there is no lacquer to wash off the whole effect. By the way, the next day even a child who has moved under the morning in our bed, groin chocolate. And my husband really liked the smell of oil Patchouli, with which he was made by massage, and therefore we left the spa salon with a huge bottle of this fragrant tool for home experiments. It should also be noted that my husband suffered from pain in the muscles after a week of intensive riding, but the next morning I woke up without a single hint of fatigue, and therefore I could not avoid a long walk with a child on a hatking route. These are so wonders.
SPA works every day with 10.00 to 12.00 and from 16.00 to 20.00, procedures better book in advance (optimally – at the beginning of the week). Entrance to the sauna and swimming pools for residents of the residence is free, for the rest – 18 euros, children under 11 years old – 10 euros.
