Les 2 Alps is just a 30 min drive over the valley and opens up two more mountains to explore.

We are both experienced ski/snowboard and mountain bike enthusiasts and have a good knowledge base of the area. We are happy to accompany guests around the mountain if requested and also offer a babysitting and mountain drop off/collection service. These are an additional cost. Please enquire if interested.The NeighbourhoodThe Chalet is in a small village called La Balme. It is one of the most beautiful villages in the Alps perched on the side of the mountain. There are breathtaking views down the valley. The village is quite and safe so perfect for families. If you are looking for bars and clubs within walking distance this probably isn't for you as the busiest resort is approx 30 min drive away. We can however offer a drop off/collection service if pre-arranged with a time.Getting aroundThere are buses up to Auris but these can be irregular. The best thing to do would be to self drive/hire a car to get around. Alternatively we can offer a ski/bike lift service at an additional cost.We offer catered weeks in the winter from £320PPPW - This includes accommodation, breakfast, afternoon tea and a three course evening meal with wine.Peak weeks - Christmas, New Year, Half Term and Easter inclines a supplement.
