A great location within Alpe d’Huez, being near both the piste (ski to within barely a hundred and fifty yards) and the lift (just a couple of hundred yards away). This old house was later popular as the hotel Etendard before being upgraded to catered chalet status and divided into this and Chalet Philippe (bo... + more

I really like the feel of Chalet Christian, it's the smaller brother of Chalet Philippe. It is tastefully decorated and the open plan lounge/dining area is bright and welcoming. It's on the middle floor of the building and is accessed from the road behind. You can ski to within 100-150m dependent on the snow co... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Christian description

The former Hotel Etendard has been converted in to 2 delightful chalets for guests. The location is perfect with close proximity to the slopes and also the ice rink and indoor swimming pools (included with the lift pass) as well as local shops and bars.

Chalet Christian's entrance is on the 2nd floor at the back of the building. There is an internal staircase connecting the two chalets (which is normally locked) and this can be opened for groups taking both chalets and arrangements can be made to eat dinner together in Philippe's spacious dining room.

Chalet Christian has a sauna and separate ski-room with heated boot warmers.

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 one day off per week. 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. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

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

New for 2013/14 Season - 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

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. 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.

We update Chalet Christian'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 Christian in Alpe d'Huez, France departs Friday 23rd December 2016, 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.

With a transfer time of around 2 hours, Alpe d’Huez is very accessible from Grenoble airport. Established in 1936, it was the first resort in France to be installed with a fully operational ski lift. The resort lies in the Grandes Rousses Massif domain and it is partnered by the smaller mountain villages of Auris-en-Oisans, Villard Reculas, Oz-en-Oisans, Vaujany and La Garde, all of which are connected by a free transport system. The slopes are mainly south facing and as a result the area, known as “L’ile ...
Alpe d’Huez has had sun and snow galore since 1936. And with a whopping 52km of greens, this is an excellent place for beginners. The easiest skiing is above the village and Les Bergers and there are plenty of wide open runs underneath the DMC gondola, many being ‘beginners only’ so you can learn without too much traffic. If you’re feeling confident, try some of the blue runs coming down from the main mountain and the signal sector back into Alpe d’Huez. There is a really impressive selection of runs for ...
If you like live music, try the Underground in Vieil Alpe, which combines a pleasant atmosphere with bands playing most nights. Smithys tavern is a proven success in the neighbouring resort of Les Deux Alpes and the Smithy’s in Alpe D’Huez has drinks promotions and healthy portions of Tex-Mex to match. If you can’t bear to miss an important game whilst in France then The Sports Bar is the best spot to watch live sports. L’igloo is the place to go if you want to party late into the night. Alpe d’huez has a...

"Close to the skiing and apres too"

Richard, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
A great location within Alpe d’Huez, being near both the piste (ski to within barely a hundred and fifty yards) and the lift (just a couple of hundred yards away). This old house was later popular as the hotel Etendard before being upgraded to catered chalet status and divided into this and Chalet Philippe (book both together if your group is more than 12 people). The 5 min “stroll” to the Palais du Sport is more like 7 minutes in the stagger home, but it’s good to “walk it off” a bit, so you’re in good shape to charge the first lifts in the morning.

"Great location and lovely chalet."

I really like the feel of Chalet Christian, it's the smaller brother of Chalet Philippe. It is tastefully decorated and the open plan lounge/dining area is bright and welcoming. It's on the middle floor of the building and is accessed from the road behind. You can ski to within 100-150m dependent on the snow cover, or the bucket lift is about 200m walk downhill. There is one host looking after you for the week and the standard of food is really high. There is about a 5-10 minute walk into town for the nightlife but a good selection of restaurants close by.
