This Winter written by your Jamie Oliver trained Chef Laurence
" Our years of experience and extensive knowledge of the skiing industry
allows us to bring together the finer touches that makes a catered chalet
experience a holiday to remember. Most importantly, our dedicated team of
staff will ensure that all of your needs are taken care of, to guarantee
that your week in the alps is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
We offer an early breakfast service, allowing you to take advantage of
your ski pass and enjoy a full day on the slopes. This consists of a
selection of meats, cheeses, cereals, bread and condiments, as well as a
selection of juices. Once you have returned from an exhilarating and
undoubtedly exhausting day carving up some of the finest piste France has
to offer, you will be welcomed back with afternoon tea, which includes a
variety of cakes throughout the week.
Our evening meal, set over three courses, boasts a comforting balance of
fine cuisine and homely cooking that is sure to suit all appetites. All
prepared in house by our chef, who has several years experience working in
Michelin and Rosette starred restaurants, and served by our host who has
several years experience in silver service companies."

The Rhone / French Alps / Savoie region
The combined La Plagne & Les Arcs ski area, now known as the world famous 'Paradiski', offers enormous opportunities for skiers of all abilities - a truly enormous winter playground. It is ideal for Beginners who want to learn in a calm village environment through to off piste addicts who want to surf or ski the couloirs of the North Face.
Chalet de la Vanoise is in the Tarentaise Valley with stunning views over Mont Blanc, and being only 30 mins drive from Italy, this is a superb base for setting out to explore the area and even pop over or cycle over to Italy for the day.
The La Plagne / Montchavin area
Montchavin is a traditional farming village that is inhabitated all year round. It was linked into the La Plagne ski area in the 70s. Due to the growing popularity of the ski industry over the last 40 years, the Vanoise ExpressTelecabine was built which puts the charming village of Montchavin right at the heart of the Paradiski linking the 2 areas of Les Arcs and La Plagne. A huge Winter playground.
In addition to skiing, (downhill and cross country) there are lots of winter activities; husky sledging, ice walking, bob-sleigh running on the Olympic run at La Plagne, ice skating and para gliding.
Combined with the help of the ski lifts in the summer, Mountain bikers and walkers can easily access altitude and view the scenery up to 3000 metres. The chalet is ideally placed for both Mountain bikers and road cyclists with some of the world famous cols included in the Tour de France only a few kilometers away. The chalet is well set up for Cyclists with a workshop and a secure lock up.
The area is rich in thermal spas and has a variety of venues offering therapeutic treatments all year round. Montchavin has a new Wellness Centre and swimming pool which is open all year round. There is also a full programme of children's activities each week throughout the winter and summer months.
