Easy access to slopes and shopsPosted Mar 12, 2017
Pros: It would be tough to compare the apartment against a hotel standard room, it was spacious and reasonably clean, location was also good.
Cons: We were using the Expedia app to find the accommodation and the map took us to the wrong location, we had to call and eventually found it.
Location: Located near to shops and choice of bars and restaurants. The road can be noisy as the machinery sets to work at all hours clearing the road of snow.
My second time staying in Flaine in consecutive years. This is not what I'd class as a hotel but private apartments that are used for tourism during the ski season. The room is large, divided into 2 spaces, the living space consisting of studio kitchen, eating and lounge space, and then the large sleeping space which in our case was made up of 2 single beds and a bunk bed. There is of course also a bathroom as you enter the apartment. We were on the ground floor and had a balcony area looking out towards the resort and mountains. Central Flaine is split over two levels, Foret and Forum. The apartment is located in Foret on the upper half of the resort. We had a real struggle to find the place on first arrival as the name "Reservation" is not the name of any hotel, using the Expedia app for directions it took us to the wrong location, which was eventually sorted by phoning the number given and getting directions - it wasn't the best start to the week long stay - however writing this review those issues have largely been forgotten. We were a group of three adults and found the accommodation fine for our needs. Just don't expect hotel standard accommodation. You get what you pay for and this represents reasonably good value for money. I'm undecided whether I'd rush to book it again, if I was on the same budget next year then probably yes. After all it just where you spend a small amount of time in between hitting the excellent slopes.

Very nice and practical, compact room with all necessary stuff. Great spectacles and evening entertainment in Flaine, infrastructure and ski scool for kids.Unfortunately missing inet connection, not very clean, we were cleaning ourselves.

Great value for moneyPosted Apr 10, 2012
Brilliant accomodation in Vega, very near slopes, shops and restaurants. Great value compared to other people in our party staying in other accomodation nearby.

Arche appts Flaine - would definately go back!!Posted Mar 1, 2011
We booked via Flaine Reservations, and ended up with a 2 bedroom appartment in Residence Arche in Flaine Foret. There was only 4 adults in our party, althhough appartments say they can sleep upto 8. 1 double bedroom with wardrobe and balcony, 1 bedroom with 2 sets on bunk beds *and little else, including no window). 1 bathroom, 1 separate loo, hallway and 1 large kitchen with table and lounge area with double sofa bed and 2 chairs and coffee table, flat screen tv and dvd. Was perfect for 4 adults, but many more than 4 there wouldnt be enough seats around table or in living area. However would def recommend, ski bus stop 1 min walk away and shops 3 min walk. Great views too!! Oh and a ski locker too

Very impressed - Fantastic Flaine!Posted Feb 27, 2009
Four of us booked for a self catering studio appartment in Flaine. The appartment was in the "Vega" block and access to the main shops and lifts was about 300m away. There have been comments about the architecture of Flaine and if you are expecting a quaint log-cabinned village then this is not for you. If you wish for convenient well planned out accomodation in a clean, quiet pedestrianed town with great views and access to the mountain then try Flaine! The appartment we had was on the 6th floor and was very comfortable with great views and a balcony. A large double sofa bed and two additional bunk beds in the entrance foyer to the flat. The kitchen area was a little small with just a 2 ring hob, microwave , fridge and d/washer. We could have done with an oven rather than the d/washer! Apparently (so a scottish lady told me) Flaine does not cater for school trips and although we went in half term there indeed was a lack of hoardes of school kids cluttering up the place! In fact we could not believe how empty the pistes were!. Off piste skiing was a REAL plus. It is not something that I have done much of before this trip, but we spent at least half the day off-piste every day. It was great.
