Meal Basis: Chalet Board
Perhaps the ultimate ski in ski out location, yet near the centre of snow-sure Avoriaz in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, Chalet Jean-France is comfortably-furnished and a wonderful addition to our short breaks ski programme. The chalet has recently undergone a complete renovation and now fuses a characterful décor with contemporary style; it promises to be a wonderful place for a ski holiday!
Staying at Chalet Jean-France will allow you the opportunity to ski to and from the door, enjoy après-ski bars on the doorstep and it's just minutes away from the traffic-free resort centre, where there are shops, cafés and the brilliant Aquariaz water park. Early booking is recommended to secure your dates of choice, asthis chalet is in very high demand.
This chalet offers a wealth of traditional charm, with 6 good-sized ensuite bedrooms over two floors, each one with a bath or shower. There are 2 communal WCs on each level. There's a spacious open-plan kitchen-diner on the first floor plus a cosy lounge area with a widescreen TV and DVD player, an open fireplace plus a balcony boasting lovely views of the slopes. The chalet has a ski room so that ski and board storage is not an issue and it has boot warmers too.
You really are at the heart of everything with the chalet sitting between two ski in/out Apres ski bars! This means that you don't have to go far to relax indoors or outdoor after your day on the slopes, the bars close by 6pm.
The chalet can only be accessed on foot and over the snow, please wear appropriate footwear. On arrival and departure there is a short 100m walk across relatively flat snow from the vehicle drop off point. Your luggage will be delivered to the chalet door for you.

Chalet board is included and consists of breakfast, afternoon tea and cake and dinner with wine, provided by your friendly host. Our chalet staff now have 2 days off a week, on a Wednesday and Saturday. On these days they will leave breakfast and afternoon tea out for you, but the evening meal is not provided, which gives you an opportunity to dine out in Avoriaz, where there is no shortage of restaurants, not to mention an excellent choice of bars and shops. Guests will continue to receive a three course evening meal with wine on the other 5 nights of the week.
