A homely, well furnished and superbly equipped chalet with lovely large balconies and stunning views from all bedrooms.
The ski room is huge which allows for the home fitting service of skis and boots so you can relax while your skis are being fitted. For self catering groups, the kitchen is really well equipped with a large oven and all Savoyard Cooking " tools " so guests can organise their own raclettes and fondue nights. For catered guests, we employ a professional chef.
English plugs in all the rooms mean no adaptors are necessary and IPOD docking stations in the bedrooms mean guests can also bring their own music. Hairdryers in all the bathrooms as well as fluffy bath robes, towels and complimentary toiletries.
The surround sound stereo system in the lounge means any films can be watched in atmosphere with a selection of films on offer. A wide selection of books are also available in our library. WIFI is available throughout the building. Satellite TV as well as Xbox are available in the lounge and playroom.
The sauna is spacious and has a steam option. Massages are available in house and it is only a 5 minute walk to the New Espace Paradisio Wellness Centre. This is a great venue for skiers and non skiers alike.
|Further details outdoors|
We have our own Private Car Park right outside the chalet for up to 6 cars. There is a Sledging area for children in the rear garden and we provide sledges.
A Large private terrace with seating and BBQ is available in the summer months. We also have a Table Tennis Table and a Children's Playroom with games and table football.
We are open all year round and being situated on part of the famous GR5 we are in a great location for walkers and mountain bikers.
We also now have a Spa / Wellness Centre called Espace Paradisio which is open all year for exercise classes and treatments. The area is ideal for Cyclists and we have secure storage for bikes. We have safes for valuables.
The Chalet has been accredited with 3 stars by Gites de France and has been recognised as a family and baby friendly venue.
The chalet is run as a family home with even Chickens in the garden to provide you with Fresh Eggs ! We are on hand to answer all guests enquiries but also get involved as little or as much as guests require.
We are trying to make the building into a more environmentally friendly building with a Thermo-dynamic heat exchange Pump to heat the hot water, recycling bins and new insulation measures being taken. We ask all guests to respect the environment.
There is no reason to use the car during your stay with us ! There is a complimentary navette linking the 2 villages and lots of delivery services to the front door. Our aim is simple - your holiday is supposed to be a holiday. The only decision you should have to make each day is whether to ski in Les Arcs by going across the world-famous Vanoise Express or shooting off right to test some of the pistes in La Plagne......
The Rhône-Alpes 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.
Montchavin is ideal for everyone, from 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.
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 Express Telecabine was built which puts the charming village of Montchavin right at the heart of the Paradiski area, 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; raquetting, husky sledging, ice climbing, 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.
