Location - where is Chalet Cristal 2

Chalet Cristal has a superb location, situated away from the main road in Val dIsere. It is only 150m from the La Daille telecabine and the "Funival" a high speed funicular that carries skiers to the top of Bellevarde (2800m) in just a few minutes. From there is a huge choice of pistes including easy access to Tignes. You can ski back to within about 150m from the chalet, the same point as the Val d'Isere World Cup Downhill finish.

At the top of the la Daille telecabine is the world famous apres bar: La Folie Douce with its live music, outrageous dancers and fabulous atmosphere – it’s the après bar that you shouldn’t miss while on holiday in Val d’Isere.

From the Chalet Cristal 2, you can walk in to the centre of Val d'Isère. Alternatively you can use the free bus service that operates around Val d'Isere throughout the day and continues until 2am. The nearest bus stop to Chalet Cristal is only 100m away for the short ride to the centre of town.

Dietary Requirements

We strive to ensure that your specific dietary requirements and preferences are catered for as best we can. Please let us know at least 14 days prior to your holiday start date, to ensure that this is possible. Our team can cater for special dietary requirements be they for medical reasons, religious reasons or simply personal preference. Our chalet hosts will be advised of these requirements in advance of your stay and every effort will be made to ensure that they are met. However, we cannot guarantee that certain ingredients will not be in the environment nor can we guarantee that cross-contamination will not occur.

Children's Food

Children aged 11 and under will be served High Tea at around 6pm. This is provided at no extra cost and ensures that your child's normal routine is not disturbed: soft drinks or milk are served with the meal. It also ensures that adults can enjoy their evening meal, which is served at 8pm. If you have booked a whole chalet then you can eat together - please speak to your chalet hosts on arrival.

The Festive Season

An Alpine chalet is a wonderful place to spend the festive season. We provide Christmas trees and decorations. On the day itself, you can look forward to aperitifs, turkey with all the trimmings, flaming Christmas pudding, mince pies, and of course, Christmas crackers. For New Year most of our resorts will have torch-lit descents, fireworks and other celebrations. Alternatively, you could just enjoy New Year's Eve dinner in your chalet with a glass or two of fizz.

We update Chalet Cristal 2'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.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere (pronounced: val de saire/sare/ser or val d sere) is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the giddyingly gorgeous surroundings, the resort itself is one of France's prettiest - a huddle alpine hamlets formed from cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and a Christmas-card-worthy church steeple at its centre, there’s alpine charm by the bucket load. While dre...
Skiers in Val d'Isere are schussing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski here, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of this place's premier status - the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics, the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009 and World Cup events every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, begi...
Famed for its après ski, there's no chance of a dull evening in Val. Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at the original Le Folie Douce, which brings you some of the best après ski in Europe - including dancers, musicians, raining champagne and much more... Once that closes, Dicks T Bar's a local legend, staying open into the early hours each night. Bananas is another firm favourite, much loved for its crafty cocktails and slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 90-something restaurants, ...

"Very good"

Richard N., York
5/ out of 5
This is a pretty “no frills” kind of chalet, but that’s what we expected. The food was good, though we had small children with us and some if it was a bit refined for our kids – in the end we asked the host to stop bothering with starters in the evening so as not to waste food. It might be worth looking into whether kids really need all the courses after having cakes earlier on. The location wasn’t perfect as the kids had lessons up in Val d’Isere rather than La Daille – it wasn’t necessarily the end of the world, just a bit of hassle to have to get the bus up. In that context the lessons started at 9 and breakfast was served at 8, so it was a bit of a rush in the morning to get everyone ready in time. But overall, it ticked all the boxes and we had a good week.

"1st Chalet holiday"

First time in a chalet.. and what a benchmark.. Superb! A truly great ski holiday experience and would definitely use this chalet company again... already looking for next year. A really well organised company with exceptional staff and the best accommodation we have stayed in yet. Good size, comfortable bedrooms with ample storage, with all rooms having en-suite. The food was varied and catered for all needs (which in our group there were more than average dietary requirements - which were met with no fuss or bother). It's in the detail and they have got it absolutely right.
