The chalet

This is a gorgeous three storey converted farmhouse, full of charm and interesting details. The ground floor has old beamed ceiling and tiled floors, and 3 foot thick stone walls. The top floor living area is open plan and filled with light from 2 walls of windows.

There are 6 bedrooms spread over the ground and first floors:

  • 3 double bedrooms
  • 2 twin bedrooms
  • 1 family suite with 2 interconnecting rooms, sleeping 4.

The living space is upstairs, open plan and split level, with big windows on either side. Four big, squashy sofas invite you to relax in front of the log fire. We have English and French TV, DVDs, PlayStation 2, CDs, board games, and Wi-Fi.

The dining area is open to the kitchen, and looks out through floor to ceiling windows on stunning mountain views.

Outside, the balcony has chairs and tables for an afternoon beer.



We are in the big European resort of Paradiski. Paradiski consists of La Plagne and Les Arcs, with over 425kms of pistes, 2 glaciers to ski, and 70% of the skiing area above 2000 metres.

Our chalet is in Montorlin, 1 km outside the resort village of Montchavin. Our chalet minibus is run at your convenience and takes you from the chalet to the telecabine steps – no walking involved!

We give you our telephone number so at the end of the day – or whenever you have had enough on the slopes – you call us and we’ll come and meet you.

You can also walk to the resort village via the road or a footpath through the woods. The footpath takes about 15 minutes up (from the chalet), 10 minutes down, and is very pretty. But walking is entirely optional.

Montchavin is on the La Plagne side of Paradiski. You only need to take one chair lift to reach the cable car across the valley to Les Arcs, so many of our guests decide to buy the full area pass.

Montchavin village also has a spa: an indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room.
