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 apres bar that you shouldn't miss while on holiday in Val d'Isère.

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.

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.
