It is the location of any ski hotel counts and that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the Chalet Hotel, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain. This included the fast Symphony Gondola seating 10 people in 50 cabins and just beyond that it the Funival funicular going to the Bellevarde area.
In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the Chalet Hotel might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps but inside, the Champs Avalins offers a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The attractive restaurant on the first floor has views to the piste, and forms the centrepiece of our chalet.
Our residents’ bar is ideal for afternoon or post-dinner drinks and is a lively venue for swapping the day’s ski highlights. Our canapés and pre-dinner glass of prosecco are served in the bar.
The Chalet Hotel is an ideal option for skiers wanting to enjoy the amazing runs ski runs of Val d'Isère and Tignes. You can ski back close to the Chalet Hotel or even return in the Symphony Gondola from the Folie Douce. The regular bus goes to the centre of Val d'Isère and it runs until late. Otherwise it is just a 12-15 minutes flat walk with streetlights if you want to stretch your legs.
The bedrooms are generally a good size and attractively furnished, and all of them have well appointed shower or bathrooms, most with smart new tiling from floor to ceiling. Most rooms have balconies, many of which are south-facing with valley views and overlook the piste where the World Cup Downhill run finishes, and there are some pairs of rooms with an inter-connecting door available on request.
