I’ve had the pleasure of staying at several different kinds of accommodations and lodging in and just outside of the Tremblant village. There are pros and cons to every option, but there are definitely distinct advantages of a big condo-style chalet like Les Manoirs that I’ll cover in this Les Manoirs Tremblant review. For reference, we stayed in chalet No. 110-8.
With three big bedrooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen, huge living room, dining room and wood-burning fireplace, all spread across two floors with a loft-style feel thanks to a soaring cathedral ceiling in the living/dining room, our Les Manoirs condo was beyond perfect size-wise for our group of four women.
One room had a king bed, one had a queen and the third had two single beds. We definitely could have squeezed two more people in if those of us in the king and queen beds were willing to share.
And OMG, the beds and bedding were sooooo lovely. Comfortable mattresses and down duvets, which should be mandatory in every ski chalet. The big pillows were awesome and fluffy (making up for the little ones, which could use a refresh). All of us slept like wee little babes, all warm and snuggly.
Les Manoirs is upscale without feeling so precious that you can’t kick back with snacks and a bottle of wine in front of the fire to chill. It’s comfortable and casual while maintaining a rustic luxe vibe that makes for an ideal ski chalet experience.
Decor is modern and functional in Les Manoirs and you’ll be impressed when you walk in the doors.
The location is great, but not ski-in/out so I suggest leaving your skis in the Valet Ski overnight (near the gondola in the upper village). Les Manoirs is on the free Tremblant shuttle line and you won’t have to walk far to catch it. That said, it’s actually not far from the village and walkable if you’re in regular boots and not carrying anything. Not that we tried…but it would probably only take about 20 minutes in winter weather. It’s only about a two-minute drive to the parking lots, though, and we favoured that!
Free wifi, yay! And one parking spot for the unit, included with the cost of your rental.
There are plenty of little soaps and creams in the bathrooms, which is a little thing but always nice.
So. Many. Stairs. Honestly, this is going to sound so sexist and whiny but we all wished our husbands were there just to carry our crap up from the car. It’s one huge set, then a walkway, then a small set that leads to a medium set of stairs before you reach the front door. Les Manoirs is beautifully perched up on a hill — and you don’t get great views without stairs. These would be exceedingly more manageable in the summer. Granted, had the stairs and walkways been cleared of snow and salted, I think that would have helped.
We were a bit disappointed to find only two yule logs near our fireplace for a four-night stay. And while I *love* a real fireplace, we would have loved to keep our ski boots warm overnight with an electric fireplace. I know, I know… First World Problems.
There were not enough towels for four women. Even for four women who didn’t shower every single day (don’t judge us).
The management company is still using real keys and I’m just not used to them anymore; they feel so antiquated now with smart keypads, e-bracelets and swipe card entry systems! This isn’t a huge gaffe but it would be great not to have to look after actual keys.
