I was very happy with this chalet, there was a group of 4 of us in the chalet which slept 12 and the stay was overall good value for money. Our room was fine, not massive but big enough for the 2 of us, the other 2 in our group were in a twin room which was also fine and had enough space for the both of them. -... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Belette (Altitude Residence) description

NB: This is a "family" chalet, so all bookings must include at least one child or teenager.

Chalet apartment Belette sleeps 12 guests in comfort, and is on the sixth floor of the Altitude building in the heart of Les Arcs 2000, offering virtually doorstep skiing and quick access to the Varet glacier at over 3,000m.

Direct access onto the slopes and wider lift system is simple, by taking the button lift which starts only 100m or so away from the main entrance, and you can ski back to within just a short 1-minute walk from the building.

This chalet apartment has a dedicated host and is comfortably fitted and furnished, with an open-plan living/dining area, complete with fireplace, TV and a balcony. Every bedroom is en suite with a bath which will suit younger families' needs in particular.

The résidence was built into the hillside, with the entrance at road level being on the fourth floor, and all the apartments arranged above and below, allowing many of them to have stunning views of the surrounding peaks and resorts below.

Guests also have the bonus of the indoor swimming-pool, a shared sauna, ski lockers, ski room, underground parking, and a convenient bar to quench your après-ski thirst!

All our childcare is based in the Chalets de L'Ours, adjacent to the Altitude, and connected by underground corridor.

Ski Childcare & Children’s Ski Lessons

We have led the childcare concept for UK families on skiing holidays for the last 35 years and our programme is constantly reviewed and refined, with previous guest feedback always the key element in further enhancing the experience.

For parents, Classic Childcare means being able to leave your accommodation after breakfast to head for the first lifts, only needing to return after the last one shuts. We look after your children completely throughout the ski day if you wish.

While the babies and toddlers go to our Nursery, staff take the older ones to our partner ski-school, collect them, give them lunch, run activities to keep them happy and stimulated and then take them back to their chalets for their high tea, giving you our super-convenient ‘Seamless Service’ throughout the day.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Belette (Altitude Residence)

We set high standards for our cuisine, training our staff extensively before the season starts to ensure that you will enjoy every meal.

One of the joys of choosing to take a catered chalet ski holiday is that you’re not doing the cooking. Our staff prepare and serve breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3 course evening meal including wine and coffee, on six days a week in our chalets on our staff day off, a continental breakfast will be provided for you.

The staff night off gives you a chance to sample some of the delicious local restaurants an ensure that you don’t leave the Alps without your fill of Weiner Schnitzel or Fondue! Our Baby Listening Service ensures that you can enjoy your meal out without worry.

Let us take care of the cooking and with the Baby Listening Service, all the family can sit back, relax and focus on the skiing!

Breakfast

In all our properties breakfast is served buffet-style with a selection of cold options including a choice of cereals or porridge, cold meats, cheese and preserves, bread (and croissants in France), fruit juices, tea and coffee and a cooked breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs and beans.

On the staff day off, a continental style breakfast is laid out for you to help yourselves in all chalets.

Afternoon Tea

Every day, apart from our staff day off, a home-baked cake and tea and coffee making facilities are laid out for you to help yourself when you return from the slopes.

Chalet Meals

High Tea at 5.30pm is served as a 2 course evening meal for all children under 11 as many parents prefer to enjoy adult-only company over dinner. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 3, whilst 3-10 years old are supervised by our childcare team.

Adult dinner at 7.30pm comprises 3 courses including an appetiser, main dish and dessert, preceded by a prosecco apéritif, accompanied by a choice of red, rose and white wines, and culminating with tea or coffee.

If it's important to you to eat dinner altogether as a family, we offer Family Dining in any chalet when you book the entire chalet for exclusive use. Dinner is then served from 6:30pm with the menu based on our adult dishes with some flexibility for the children's preferences. There is a supplement of £39 per child for Family Dining.

Dinner on staff days off for all guests

On the staff night off you and your family have the opportunity to eat out in one of the local restaurants. Our staff will be happy to help with recommendations and bookings if you wish. If you would prefer, you can always order in a takeaway pizza, and have a relaxing evening in.

Children’s High Tea

High Tea provides children under 11 with a healthy menu, but tailored more towards children’s tastes than our main adult dinner, and puréed food is also always available for infants on request. Parents are asked to accompany their children under 36 months at High Tea please, whilst children from 3-10 years will be supervised by staff.

Special Diets

Vegetarian options are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

Christmas & New Year Celebrations

All our chalets offer traditional fare for Christmas dinner, with roast turkey and all the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers, party hats and of course a pre-dinner glass of Champagne plus a lively, fun atmosphere for all the family.

This is the one meal that all families share together regardless of children’s ages, so in some properties the dining tables can be quite crowded, but this adds to the festive ambience of all celebrating together!

A special festive menu followed by Champagne is also served on New Year’s Eve, but this is for adults only (and those aged 11 and over of course).

We update Chalet Belette (Altitude Residence)'s details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

Les Arcs came to be in 1968 after a group of ski instructors and architects dreamt up a resort with all the perks of a village but a mountainside location. It grew into one of the largest, most incredible ski areas in the Alps. The closest airport is Chambery with a transfer time of a couple of hours and there are various transport links from Geneva, Lyon and Grenoble too. Present day Les Arcs consists of four main purpose built villages. The original resort, Arc 1600, was created for doorstep skiing and is di...
As you'd expect from one of the biggest ski areas on the planet, there's everything from gorgeous tree-lined runs to wild, white-knuckle off-piste. For beginners, each of the 3 main Arcs has “ski tranquille” zones and the wide beginner runs leading to the resort have gentle gradients that are perfect for practicing. Local instructors are on hand to show you the ropes, with ski schools based in each of the main villages (1800 has the most). There are magic carpet lifts at 1800 and 2000 - an easy way for newbies...
If you’re looking for a party, Arc 1800 is hands down the place to be. It's hosted events like the legendary Snowbombing festival over the years and has oodles of watering holes like the Red Hot Saloon (or the 'Red Bar' to use local lingo). If you’re looking for more of a French style après spot, Ambiente has a really cool atmosphere and lots of nice cocktails (happy hour usually starts at 4!) while Le club 1950 your venue if you’re looking to party into the wee hours. Arc 1600's a little quieter but for goo...

"V. good value"

Mr Holden, Witney
4/ out of 5
I was very happy with this chalet, there was a group of 4 of us in the chalet which slept 12 and the stay was overall good value for money. Our room was fine, not massive but big enough for the 2 of us, the other 2 in our group were in a twin room which was also fine and had enough space for the both of them. - Emma the host was very good and the food was brilliant. Breakfast was great, we had a full English most mornings, the afternoon tea and cake were brilliant and in the evening we usually had an aperitif and 4 course meal which was very impressive quality. The boot room could have been a bit bigger, it was supposed to fit everyone’s boots but couldn’t, so we ended up having to take our boots upstairs to our room. The door was hanging off too – and still wasn’t fixed when we left. We hadn’t been to Les Arcs before, but the other people staying in the chalet had and acted as guides for us. All the runs were good and access from the chalet was easy, we just had to walk down the road and go up an escalator.
