Location - where is Chalet Claire

They boast a fantastic ski location right beside the piste with a very gentle track leading straight to the main lifts so perfect for getting to ski school or for keen skiers you can be on first lifts within a minute of clicking on your skis. You can either ski back to the chalet or if you do take the bus, the stop is literally a few steps from the door. The resort centre can be easily accessed either walking across the nursery slopes in around 10 minutes or you can always take the local bus which runs every 15 minutes during the day connecting with the main resort buses which run constantly.

Distance to slopes: Ski in/out. Distance to resort centre: Across the nursery slopes, approx 10 min walk. Ski rental pick up & collection: No last minute panic to get skis back to shop on last day..


Overview - chalet description - Chalet Claire description

We are delighted to be able to offer this collection of chalet apartments within the traditional style Praz de la Legettaz Residence. The chalets (named after the owners daughters!) are all very similar in style with plenty of wood panelling, squishy leather sofas and large dining tables.

Chalet Claire is on the upper floor (second) of the building with balconies off the living and dining area offering lovely views. It is virtually identical to Chalet Sophie next door and has a cosy feel with character and warmth and is duplex in style split over an internal level with most of the bedrooms on the upper floor. The living area has plenty of comfy seating with access to the balcony and lovely views over the Bellevarde. It is slightly separate to the open plan kitchen/dining room so you can relax and enjoy your after dinner coffee whilst all the clearing away is got on with!. The bedrooms are fairly typical of French developments with space very much at a premium, so whilst not on the spacious side, they are all ensuite with most having baths.

Available to individuals as well as groups looking to take over a whole chalet, we are confident these lovely chalets will prove popular for guests looking to be in the perfect piste side location. They will also appeal to Families, particularly those with younger children due to the ease of access to the slopes and also to ski school - you can literally walk out from your chalet and ski away! Don't forget we have 3 other chalet apartments within this building so ideal for larger groups to book together.

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.


Facilities - Chalet Claire features

Internet/wifi is available free of charge in all of our chalets, however, in most instances belongs to the chalet owner so its availability is outside of our control. Please bear in mind that in the mountains, signal strength can vary, may not always be that strong or suitable for large amounts of streaming. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that it will be operative or that there will be continuous and uninterrupted connection. In the event of technical or other issues preventing access, no refund or compensation will be paid! Bear in mind that access may not be available throughout the chalet and maybe in communal areas only. We recommend that if accessing the net or downloading is essential during your holiday, you have your own data/roaming package for back up or make use a local internet shop.

Start your day with a hearty breakfast to fuel your day on the slopes, choose from a selection of cereals (not forgetting a bowl of Skiers porridge!), fresh fruit and yoghurts, freshly baked local bread and choice of preserves accompanied by fruit juices, tea and coffee. In addition, apart from chalet staff day off and change over day, and assuming you have the room, enjoy a varied cooked breakfast such as eggs, bacon and beans or pancakes.

Afternoon tea

On your return from the slopes, pop the kettle on and help yourself to a teatime treat with a slice (or two!) of delicious home-made cake or biscuits.

Dinner

Just imagine a casual dinner party with friends, now imagine that minus the stress of shopping, cooking, clearing up, ordering taxis, organising babysitters...... well now you can! Relax, your evening starts around 7.30pm swapping some ski tales and banter over canapes and aperitif followed by a set menu wiith a delicious freshly cooked dinner accompanied by unlimited house wine until coffee is served at the end of your meal.

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.

We update Chalet Claire'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 Claire in Val d'Isere, France departs Saturday 17th February 2018, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis.

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...
