I don’t think anywhere in Courchevel has a good location – this one was probably a 150m walk up or down the hill with skis and boots (we had clear roads but if it would icy it would be much more difficult). Getting into town was a 10-15 minute walk straight down the hill which was also quite a hard trek. The... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Chenus 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).

Chalet Chenus is in such a superb location and ideal for skiers who wish to enjoy all that 1850 has to offer.

Chalet Chenus sits amongst the pine trees elevated above the road in the tranquil area of Chenus, just up from the lifts at La Croisette and close to the heart of the resort.

Chalet Chenus boasts two cosy lounges, the principal one with a corner fireplace adjoining the bright dining area with beamed ceiling, from where French doors lead onto a wrap-around balcony with stunning views of the mountains and forest. The second is a contemporary snug with a flat screen TV.

The bedrooms in the Chalet Chenus are spacious and well appointed, each with en suite bath or shower rooms and two with balcony.
Skiers can access the ski area by either taking the Dou du Midi red run down to the bottom of the Plantrey chairlift or the easy Epicea green run leading to the same point. The resort centre can be reached via the piste in only 5 minutes on foot or a longer but easier walk by road.

The owners live on the first floor, sharing the main entrance to the chalet with our guests.
The Chalet Chenus is another fantastic offering in Courchevel 1850.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Chenus

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 Chenus'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.

Après ski in 1850 is the height of sophistication. Enjoy a cosy fireside cocktail in Le Stanleys or Les Ducs de Savoie, two of the resort's many piano bars; sample fine wine and champagne in Le P'tit Drink or head to La Grange or L'Arc (formally Les Caves) for an uber posh clubbing scene. Down in 1650, you can fully appreciate the stunning surroundings at The Signal bar. Les Schuss is good for a quiet drink in a traditional Savoyarde setting and if you're looking for live music and a vibrant atmosphere, try Roc...

"Quite good, clean and spacious."

Gemma, Beckenham
4/ out of 5
I don’t think anywhere in Courchevel has a good location – this one was probably a 150m walk up or down the hill with skis and boots (we had clear roads but if it would icy it would be much more difficult). Getting into town was a 10-15 minute walk straight down the hill which was also quite a hard trek. The food was really good, I’m allergic to fish and they catered for that straight away. The mains were duck and things like that rather than spaghetti bolognaise and lasagne. Children get to eat earlier than the adults which is quite nice. My partner and I had a room with 2 single beds pushed together with enough space around the edge. None of the rooms really had views as they were facing the wrong way.

"Secluded setting, right by a red run"

Quaintly hidden away above the pine trees, this chalet is set in the perfect location only 50m from the Dou du Midi red run, yet close enough to the resort centre to be. The chalet is traditional and comfortable with its large lounge and fireplace to relax or as a jumping off point from which to take part in all of the extensive après ski that Courchevel has to offer. This holiday is great value for money at one of the top French ski resorts.
