Expect to find a place that will feel like your home, where you can be totally at ease.

The price includes:

  • all breakfasts (cooked and continental options);
  • afternoon teas and home made cakes, mulled wine and hot chocolate;
  • 6 evening meals – the food is first class and is served with unlimited good bottled wines from our local wine merchant;
  • early evening children’s suppers;
  • we serve local specialities as appetisers, and local drinks as aperitifs or digestives (such as genepi, kirs, and the grolla);
  • chalet minibus, to shuttle you the 3 minutes to the chair lift, running whenever you want it;
  • In addition, all the rooms have big fluffy towels, hairdryers, and jars of smarties.

Pre-arrival services Before you get here we will help you organise your holiday, so that you have nothing to do except get your skis on! • Lift passes will be purchased for you before you arrive, at a chalet discount off the public price; • Ski lessons or guiding will be arranged if you require; • Ski hire can be organised with our partner company, who deliver and fit in the comfort of the chalet. No queuing in shops, and the staff are English or English speaking.

Location back to top

View map


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.
