There is a discount for vegetarians and we can cater for gluten-free and other special diets. Early 2 course meals are available for children if required.

Your Hosts

Sam and Alvaro are an English-Spanish couple who first ventured to the Paradiski in 2002 to run a ski chalet together. They fell in love with the mountains and never left. These days they’re based year-round in the mountains.

Accommodation

Chalet Layout

There’s plenty of space inside this chalet for socialising including a big play room/chill out space, quiet corners for reading or studying and even a separate dining room. It’s very peaceful too. The chalet is ski-in on an off piste forest track, and there’s also an on-demand private driver service to the lifts and back. Despite being so close to the ski slopes, the hamlet has managed to stay hidden and undeveloped. Children make snowmen and sledge in the village fields, deer and wild boar visit the gardens at night, and the sky is lit by stars and a few old fashioned street lamps.

The chalet is composed of the main house and its top floor penthouse (accessed internally or via external stairs). It can sleep up to 16, or 18 if at least 2 of the group are children. The bedrooms and bathrooms are arranged as follows (the majority of rooms are ensuite or have a private bathroom):

  • Bedroom 1 (Montagnette): spacious double room (queen size bed 160x200cm or x2 80x200cm) with mountain views, sitting area and juliette balcony, free standing bath and ensuite shower room, mountain views.
  • Bedroom 2 (Pantoufle): twin / double room (king size bed 180x200cm or 2x 90x200cm), tongue-and-groove panelling, window seat with mountain views, wood floors and ensuite shower room
  • Bedroom 3 (Grange): family room (queen size bed 160x200cm or 2x 80x200cm, + bunks) with ensuite shower room, wood floors and balcony with mountain views
  • Bedroom 4 (Studio): triple room (x1 single 90x200cm + bunks), shower room & WC across the hall
  • Bedroom 5 (Cabin): a small room between Pantoufle and Montagnette, with a double wall bed (140x200cm) and window seat with mountain views. The bed occupies most of the floor space when it’s down. There’s also a WC and sink along the hall
  • Bedroom 6 (Melezes): twin or double room (beds 90x200cm) with mountain views, ensuite shower room and toilet
  • Bedroom 7 (Atelier): optional mezzanine off the sitting room with two cabin-style single beds built in under the eaves.

Location

The chalet is in the top part of Montvilliers (1100m), a tiny unspoilt hamlet tucked away on the mountainside under the ski resort of Plagne Montalbert (one of the La Plagne ski villages). One of the highest resorts in Europe, there are lots of lift-linked runs suitable for all levels, and beautiful forest runs down to the La Plagne villages. Montalbert’s fast gondola is a short 5 minute drive in our private chalet shuttle. You can also ski back along off-piste forest tracks.

F.A.Q.

Can my hosts cater to my dietary requirements?

Simply let your hosts know in advance what your dietary requirements are, and they will be more than happy to accommodate you.

Do my hosts do a separate meal for children?

If required, your hosts can organise a separate meal time for your children. Speak to your hosts in advance to discuss your children’s tastes and requirements.

What should we do for dinner on the chalet day off?

There are plenty of good local restaurants for you to sample. Your hosts are more than happy to recommend the best local restaurants, and help you with any bookings you need to make.

What transfers are included?

There is courtesy shuttle service to the lifts and back running at set times morning and afternoon. During the day. there’s an “on-demand” cover service to bring you back early if needed. The pick up points are close to a bar too, so depending on the time, you can keep warm and have a drink while waiting. In the evenings, they can lay on extra runs for groups if you want to sample the après-ski before or after dinner (subject to prior agreement, extra charges may apply).
