On the whole, the chalet was well appointed, handy for the slopes with skiing more or less to and from the door. The food was very pleasant. Wifi a bit iffy – you had to be really near the router to get a good enough signal which was a bit of a hassle. The snow was good for March – 1 afternoon we had complete... + more

The chalet is lovely: not posh and a bit worn out but perfectly adequate. For breakfast we had juices, croissants and the usual English breakfast with bacon, sausages and beans. Beautiful cakes were left out for afternoon tea that we could help ourselves to. Evening meals were varied but all brilliant with a ... + more

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Elan description

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

Skiers seeking an individual chalet in the heart of Courchevel 1850 will be as delighted as we at are with Chalet Elan, tucked away in a quiet cul de sac, with superb ski access.

The Chalet Elan has an enviable location just 70m from a green run, so even beginners will be able to ski from the door within days. This green run leads to the Plantrey lift whisking skiers above the main lift system at La Croisette, thus avoiding the busy resort centre.

The chalet Elan benefits from an inviting large lounge and dining area with country character features such as the beamed ceiling, a striking log fireplace and slate floors.

The generously sized, comfortable bedrooms with warm wood panelling are spread over two floors, all with en suite facilities.

The renowned après-ski of Courchevel 1850 is an easy 5-7 minutes’ stroll away in the resort centre and must certainly be experienced at least once during your stay!

The owners live on the upper two floors of the building, sharing the main entrance to the chalet with our guests.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Elan

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. For six days of the week for our 2017/18 season, and five days of the week for 2018/19, our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff's day(s) off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

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 day(s) off. 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.

Dinner

2017/18 season cuisine

A three-course adult-only chalet dinner starts with Prosseco, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality red and white wines is unlimited during the meal service, and chilled water is also of course always available.

2018/19 season cuisine

Our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal 5 nights a week. Consisting of an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! The staff nights off are a great opportunity to experience some local restaurents and cuisine. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Our Quality Wines

We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palates. In our Chalet Hotels we also offer an additional light fresh rosé to our guests’ choice. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

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

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.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets - just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. 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.

Christmas and New Year

All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.
A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

NB: Next year chalet catering will be 5 nights catered not 6, for winter 2018/2019 (i.e. guests eat out 2 nights, if staying in this property).

We update Chalet Elan'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 Elan in Courchevel, France departs Sunday 14th January 2018, 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.

Après ski in 1850 is the height of sophistication.

"Pleasant stay"

Mr Smithson, Barnet
4/ out of 5
On the whole, the chalet was well appointed, handy for the slopes with skiing more or less to and from the door. The food was very pleasant. Wifi a bit iffy – you had to be really near the router to get a good enough signal which was a bit of a hassle. The snow was good for March – 1 afternoon we had complete fog in Meribel, I was unable to see 4/5 yards but otherwise the weather was fine.

"Lovely chalet"

Lindy, Lincolnshire
3/ out of 5
The chalet is lovely: not posh and a bit worn out but perfectly adequate. For breakfast we had juices, croissants and the usual English breakfast with bacon, sausages and beans. Beautiful cakes were left out for afternoon tea that we could help ourselves to. Evening meals were varied but all brilliant with a different meat each day and fish one day – all very nicely cooked and presented. The girls who ran the chalet couldn’t do enough for you. The chalet’s literally a minute walk to the slopes which was great; from there we could ski down to the gondola. My bedroom was fine, it wasn’t cleaned one day (not the host’s day off) but this wasn’t an issue, I have no complaints.

"Desserts to die for!"

It’s a lovely chalet. Much better than some I’ve stayed at on ski holidays. I was very happy with it. It’s right on the slopes, the location couldn’t be better for skiing. To get into Courchevel 1850 you have to walk uphill – there is a short cut through the snow or you can walk along the path next to the main road. You could take the bus down to 1650 as well which we did for our one meal out, there are buses running constantly and they run in the evening. It was better to be up in 1850 though as it was late in the season so the snow was better higher up. The hosts were wonderful, I don’t have one bad word to say about them. They were helpful and good fun. The food was lovely. It was high quality, and the desserts were to die for! I think I had about 4 panna cottas one evening… One thing to note is that they are quite strict about children having an earlier meal time at 5:30pm. We travelled together with another couple and it restricted them having a beer after skiing. One of them always had to leave the post ski drinks early to take the children back for dinner. One night we phoned the chalet staff and told them we were coming back later, and they ended up holding off the children’s meal and the children ate at 6:30pm, so they were accommodating, but they normally insist children always eat at 5:30pm. It’s not a luxury place, but good value and certainly good quality for a ski chalet.

"If you go to Courchevel make sure you go to this chalet"

Lindsey Helliwell, Glasgow

It was fantastic! Thoroughly, thoroughly recommended. The staff were great. They were super helpful – they negotiated with the ski school and helped us get a different instructor for our daughter, and they also took us to the ski hire shop in a jeep (which we had booked privately… and when we forgot our boots they even went back to get them). They were great with the children and they catered well for them. My daughter is a fussy eater and she was trying things she never normally tries. The food was amazing. The official children’s meal time was a bit early for us as we like a few après ski drinks, but they were very accommodating, we just called them up and let them know we wanted the children to eat a bit later. This wasn’t a problem as we were often skiing together with the other children in the chalet. When we got back they greeted us with a wee aperitif and canapés. The chalet is in a brilliant location. You can ski right back to it, and it’s only a short walk in the mornings, about 2 minutes. It’s great for beginners and families because there are lots of green runs nearby, although it’s great for everyone really. There was also a couple at the chalet while we were there and they loved it too. My husband could ski over to Meribel and there were some harder runs for him. I would love to come back. If you go to Courchevel make sure you go to this chalet! We took the free shuttle bus down to Courchevel 1650 one evening for dinner, on the chalet hosts’ night off, and we went to a restaurant on their recommendation, it was very good. I prefer Courchevel 1850 though because the shops are better and the pistes are nicer, so I would want to stay here if we came back.

"Peaceful spot out of centre near lift"

Sno man, Sno Staff
5/ out of 5
This country style chalet is hidden away from the resort centre in a quiet cul du sac yet its handily placed right next to the Plantrey ski lift where, with a little planning, you're bound to beat the crowds and be the first to hit the slopes. After a long days skiing’s the chalet has a cosy lounge with open log fire place. We love to be wined and dined at the end of the day with free flowing plonk over dinner, and this chalet comes up trumps with a better than expected wine selection and hearty catering worthy of the hardest charging snowboarders and skiers. Fuel for the body and the soul.
