Overview - chalet description - Chalet Chamois d'Or description

This traditionally styled Savoyarde Chalet is quite a landmark situated at the foot of the infamous Face run on Bellevarde (home of the 2009 World Cup Men's downhill), you can ski from the door to the main lifts, nursery slopes and ski school meeting points so absolutely ideal for families as well as keen skiers. The brave (& foolhardy!), can "face the Face" to ski back whilst the rest of us mere mortals would probably find an alternative route!. The amenities and facilities of the resort centre are just a five minute stroll away. The brand new purpose built Sport & Aquatic Centre is virtually a neighbour, offering pools, leisure and spa facilities so don't forget to pack the swimwear and take advantage of a free session (with an Espace Killy lift pass).

The Chamois D'Or is getting on in years and unfortunately the owner still won't commit to refurbishment or redevelopment, never the less it has proved incredibly popular over the last few seasons. Its many regular guests have added to its repuation for great value holidays with a friendly atmosphere, good food and fantastic team of happy and hard working staff.

Despite being home to around 50 guests each week, the Chamois still offers that typical friendly and informal chalet style holiday. Think Savoyarde charm not the Savoy! definitely not smart or luxurious but there is an abundunce of character and a superb atmosphere.

If you are looking for a great value holiday to Val d'Isere, an unbeatable convenient location, with plentiful good food and a great team of welcoming staff (and are not expecting 4 or 5 star, chic and stylish accommodation!) then the Chamois crew look forward to welcoming you.

Families - any extra notes for parents with children

Children in our chalets

We welcome children in any of our chalets at any time throughout the season regardless of whether you are a group taking over the whole chalet or individual bookings into a larger chalet.

  • Our generous special reductions apply throughout the season
  • Selected family rooms with half price for under 12s.
  • The same reductions apply to all your children (not just the first two!).
  • Our child discount applies whether your children share your room or not.
  • Children enjoying discounts are still counted towards group discounts.

(Child discounts do not apply to late availability/reduced price holidays)

For all children under the age of 12 years we offer a generous 10% discount , however in selected chalets and family rooms, children can go at half price. All discounted children enjoy our child friendly early supper which our chalet staff will provide at approximately 6pm, (a parent must be on hand to oversee their child). This will be a two course meal with tasty (& healthy!) dishes such as shepherd’s pie, pasta bakes and casseroles followed by fruit, ice cream, crumbles etc. We encourage parents to chat to our chalet staff prior to their arrival to discuss their children’s meals. If you are taking over a whole chalet and would prefer your children to join the normal adult dinner then there is a supplement of £50 per child per week, please advise us of this at least two weeks prior to your departure. If you are in a shared chalet then we expect children under 12 to have the early supper. The only exception is Christmas dinner and sometimes meals on arrival night if you are arriving late. We charge £100 for babies under the age of 2. Subject to their availability, we can provide travel cots and high chairs if required, please ensure you bring your own baby sleeping bag or blankets and a harness if required for high chairs. Flight seats are not included and car seats are not provided on our coach transfers. However baby seats are available on private taxi transfers, please ask for prices for private transfers. We do not provide jars or formula but your chalet host will happily keep some fruit/veg to one side and make a puree for your baby. Breakfast and children's supper is available to older babies who can manage normal solid foods. All our chalets have tv’s and dvd players so please feel free to bring your own selection of dvd’s and also a selection of general board games. Please bear in mind that our chalets/chalet hotels are not equipped to be child safe, there won't be stair gates or socket covers for example, bunk beds may not have guard rails and not all chalets have microwaves if you need these for sterilising bottles etc. Please make sure you are familiar with the chalet layout and location of bedrooms and bear in mind that entrances maybe shared with other residents. Children's behaviour and their safety remain the sole responsibility of their parents at all times.


We don't provide any child care facilities ourselves however there are two local nurseries.

Ski school

If you wish to book ski school for your children, please ensure you do this as soon as possible as lessons get booked up quickly and particularly if you are traveling during the school holiday. Refer to our ski school pages for contact details and please contact them directly to organize and book.

With tables to suit different group sizes, house wine to hand, you will soon get to know your fellow guests whilst enjoying a wonderful 3 course dinner created by our fantastic head chefs. Please click here for a sample menu. Please click here to see a selection of our mouthwatering dishes. Special Diets Our Chalet staff always aim to please and create menus everybody likes. If given notice they are happy within reason to adapt their menus to your specific tastes and dietary requests but please do bear in mind that chalets are mostly private houses and do not have vast kitchens or teams of chefs to cope with cooking separate meals for everyone!. We provide a vegetarian alternative for guests that don't eat meat or that evening choice of meat or fish. Please ensure that we know about any dietary requests (whether by choice or for health or religion) including gluten or dairy free well in advance of your holiday - if you wait until a couple of days before arrival or even wait until you are in resort, it may take days to source particular products, if at all. Our chalet staff obviously aim to please and ensure you have a tasty selection of food through the week but you must be happy to compromise with our chalet menu and accept that we cannot offer a completely alternative menu for you and you may see the same cake or treat more than once!. We encourage you to chat to our chalet staff to discuss your request and they will be in touch with you during the week prior to your arrival to run through the menu and to advise with regards bringing any items with. Please note, we cannot provide totally vegan meals or kosher and cannot guarantee a nut free environment. Children's Supper We provide a child friendly supper with two courses of home cooked and nutritious food, at around 6pm for all children under 12years. We encourage you to chat to your chalet staff before arrival with regards your childrens meals so they know they are on the right track with their menu! If you have sole use of a chalet and you would prefer your children to eat a normal dinner with you at 8pm there is a £50 upgrade. For those in a shared chalet it is generally expected that under 12s would have the early supper. Please click here for a sample menu. Picnic Lunches - Keep your Euro spending to the minimum and instead order one of our good value picnic lunches available locally from your chalet staff. A tasty filled baguette/roll, piece of fruit, can of drink and a choccie bar should keep hunger pangs at bay!

This package holiday to Chalet Chamois d'Or in Val d'Isere, France departs Saturday 10th March 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.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere (pronounce it: val de saire/sare/ser) makes up half of Espace Killy which is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the attractiveness of its surroundings, the resort itself is a compilation of alpine hamlets made up of cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and eye-catching church steeple at its centre, the whole place is truly oozing alpine charm. And while dre...

As an indication of its premier status, the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009, along with the World Cup every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, beginners can...
