Thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Our room in particular was ginormous, we probably had a family room just for two of us. The chalet was nice and warm.

It’s a really nice chalet, the best bits were that the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was really good. The nearest lift is about a minute away and the bars and shops are easy to reach too. We had a double room – quite small but all we needed. + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Cascades description

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

Situated in the very centre of Courchevel 1650, with the main gondola* and piste just across the street and convenient for all the resort’s amenities, the Cascades has been extensively refurbished over recent seasons, to create a comfortable and well-designed chalet in the most convenient of locations.

The more spacious rooms at the rear of the chalet and the stylish dining-room have spectacular views across the Bozel valley. The large gabled lounge on the third floor, with TV/DVD is the hidden gem of the property offering a very comfortable area in which to unwind.

New for the 17/18:*The Ariondaz gondola is being replaced with a brand new eight person gondola! This new lift system will have twice the capacity of the previous system and will take you up to the existing top station, near the Bel Air restaurant.

New taboggan run: Starting from Bel Air, the new 3km long run is twice as long as the existing run in 1850, has 4 underground sections and an average gradient of 15%. Another fantastic non ski activity for you in Courchevel.

Equipment hire couldn’t be easier, with our partner hire-shop conveniently below the chalet, ideal for last minute purchases or kit adjustments.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Cascades

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. For six days of the week for our 2017/18 season, and five days of the week for 2018/19, our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff's day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's day(s) off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.

Dinner

2017/18 season cuisine

A three-course adult-only chalet dinner starts with Prosseco, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality red and white wines is unlimited during the meal service, and chilled water is also of course always available.

2018/19 season cuisine

Our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal 5 nights a week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurents and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Our Quality Wines

We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palates. In our Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets - just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. 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 and New Year

All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

We update Chalet Cascades'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.

This package holiday to Chalet Cascades in Courchevel, France departs Sunday 23rd December 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Divided into five villages - each known by its altitude - the Courchevel area provides a series of settings to suit different tastes, group make-ups and budgets. For pure, champagne-popping indulgence, VIP area Courchevel 1850 oozes exclusivity and no-limits luxury. It's the largest and highest of the villages, and with a private airport, twelve Michelin stars between its restaurants, two palace hotels and a bundle of designer boutiques, it's a seriously swanky stomping ground for the fashionable, famous and aff...

"Newly refurbished and very nice"

Iain Hogg, Ross and Cromarty
5/ out of 5
The chalet is really good, I couldn’t fault the whole trip. We had a very nice room, it was clean, perfect really. We had a bath, it’s worth it to pay little extra to have a bath. It’s also worth it to pay for a room with a mountain view, we were round the front of the hotel which looks out onto the high street and the slightly more expensive rooms round the back have a view of the mountains. The chalet is on the main street of 1650, surrounded by lots of pubs and bars and just across the road from the lifts. It’s not noisy at all though. The lounge has just been refurbished (there was a fire last season) so it’s immaculate, very nice. Ignore the old Trip Advisor reviews about the décor. The food was pretty good. The service was good, I’d give it an 8/10. The boot room was a bit small, smelt and there weren’t enough places to store your skis. That’s the only thing needing an upgrade. It’s not a luxury place but it was great for us.

"Excellent chalet and staff"

Allan family, Blairgowrie
5/ out of 5
This is an excellent chalet; if we stay in Courchevel 1650 again we will definitely try and book it again. It’s not ultra luxury but has everything you need. The bedrooms are quite large for a chalet, we had a room for 3 people and it was nicely furnished with comfortable beds and a balcony overlooking the valley at the back. There is a bar just by the door of the chalet that has a terrace and a pavement area, but we certainly didn’t have any trouble with noise from the back of the chalet. The team looking after us were excellent, very friendly and efficient - the woman who managed it was fantastic. The dining room is nice and the food we had was quite a high standard given the numbers they had to cater for. One of the reasons we chose the Cascades was its location, it’s right across the road from the escalator which takes you up to the 1650 bubble. There are lockers by the ski lift although you also have the boot room in the chalet if you don’t mind carrying skis. We were a family group and I’d definitely recommend the chalet to other families. It has a very mixed clientele and they arranged the tables accordingly. A large group of young people were also well accommodated although it was mostly couples and adult family groups.

We had the most wonderful skiing holiday. The chalet Cascades was the best we had ever stayed in and the staff were so friendly. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to family and friends.

"Huge room, good food, seconds from slopes!"

Bronwen, Portsmouth
4/ out of 5
Thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Our room in particular was ginormous, we probably had a family room just for two of us. The chalet was nice and warm. The food was very good, and they were very flexible so if you didn’t like something on the menu you could have the veggie option – they don’t usually let you have other meals unless you ask in advance. Getting to the slopes took minutes, you just go over the road, up the escalator and then you’re on the snow. To go up to Courchevel 1850 was a ten minute bus ride, with the bus stop nearby.

"Nice chalet near the slopes"

It’s a really nice chalet, the best bits were that the staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was really good. The nearest lift is about a minute away and the bars and shops are easy to reach too. We had a double room – quite small but all we needed.

"Near the action in Courchevel 1650 and the lifts"

This spacious recently refurbished chalet is in a great position in the heart of Courchevel 1650, and within easy access to the gondola, helping the early starters among us to hit the slopes on the first lift. From the back of the chalet several rooms and the huge dining area enjoy wonderful views of the Three Valleys mountain range, which is beautiful to wake up to in the mornings. The food is delicious and the chiefs definitely know how to dish up good food!
