Overview - chalet description - Chalet Ecureuil description

This charming chalet-apartment, in the traditionally picturesque stone-built hamlet of Le Fornet, is absolutely perfect for a family or group of five or six friends looking for a cosy ‘home from home’. The heart and soul of the chalet is the attractively furnished, light and airy living/dining area. Furnished and fitted to a high standard throughout, with pleasing neutral tones alternating with splashes of colour, classic tiled floors and lime-washed wood panelling, the Ecureuil provides a pleasing mixture of comfort and elegance. The lounge also opens out onto a lovely big sun terrace overlooking the river, and facing west into the setting sun.

The bedrooms on the floor below are simply furnished yet comfortable, with the three rooms sharing two bathrooms, one of which features a jetted bath tub, two-person sauna and a double-headed ‘Italian shower’. A further shower-room and two separate wc’s complete the chalet’s smart and stylish facilities.

Only approximately five minutes’ walk from the main Le Fornet cable-car, the Ecureuil offers excellent access to Val d’Isère’s vast ski area, and good skiers can ski back even closer, to within 150m of the chalet.

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 Ecureuil'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 Ecureuil in Val d'Isere, France departs Sunday 8th January 2017, 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.

One of the smaller chalet-apartments in the resort, booking this chalet for sole-occupancy has become a popular choice for families or small groups of five or six looking for a ‘home-from-home’ in the mountains. The rustic stone façade of the property fits in perfectly in the quitter hamlet of Le Fornet, and the main Fornet cable car is only a few minutes’ walk away- proficient skiers can ski to within a hundred and fifty metres of the chalet at the end of the day. With a small sauna, cosy living area and west facing balcony (perfect for late season drinks in the sun) you won’t want for anything throughout your trip.
