Chalet Castor is just one of six ski chalets which make up a mini-village in the picturesque area of Peisey Vallandry, just below Les Arcs 1800. Set on a slope and very close to the lifts linking you to Les Arcs and across the valley to La Plagne, you can't beat the west-facing views and dreamy sunsets.
The chalet has been very well laid out with a pair of large ensuite bedrooms on each floor, particularly ideal for families taking two rooms as it affords a nice amount privacy. The Castor and four of the other chalets are identical in size and layout, all sleeping between 11 and 15 people. If you want more room, Chalet Hermine is larger as it sleeps 15-18 guests.
Families will also love our full range of kids' clubs located on the ground floor of Chalet Hermine. Our experienced team of nannies will look after your little ones from the age of four months right up to 12 years old with plenty of fun both in the warm and out in the fresh mountain air.
Head to your home-from-home after a day's exploring in the massive 425km Paradiski area to an afternoon tea with freshly-made cake and biscuits. Kick back on the large sofas, warm up in front of the fire and swap stories. Or for a little more relaxation and rejuvenation, each chalet has its own sauna and outdoor hot tub to soak in the snowy valley views.
This is quite a unique chalet village as it's completely interlinked with a series of paths and steps. The top most chalet and the one closest to the lifts is Chalet Hermine. It's not only the largest out of the six chalets, but houses the ski lockers for all chalets and the entire ground floor is dedicated to a bar and our very own kids' clubs.
Don’t forget that you get free guiding and coaching throughout the week from fully qualified ski and board instructors.
Designed for confident blue and red-run skiers and snowboarders, they'll show you around the mountain on free guiding sessions, and even offer free coaching sessions to help you become a more confident skier or snowboarder.
There are at least three sessions a week and we guarantee each guest at least two sessions a week. Your hosts will explain how it works when you get there.
Our youngest guests will be well catered for with our childcare and crèches taking care of kids from four months to 12 years old. For skiing kids, we offer a ski school drop-off and pick-up service, ensuring they're happy and settled. There's also evening care available on three evenings a week.
Your chalet hosts will be able to cook up dedicated kids' meals with all the firm favourites to make sure they're well fed, and at a time that suits you. You can also borrow our snow buggies and sledges for when you want to head out and explore the resort by yourselves.
For our youngest guests, we have a 24 hour baby room and UK standard cots and highchairs, just let us know at the time of booking if you'd like a cot in your room.
We can even provide a private nanny service if you would prefer to have individual care for your little ones. Simply call us to discuss your needs.
