Overview - chalet description - Chalet La Face description

Accommodating six guests, La Face is a spacious chalet with character, ideal for families and smaller groups. La Face, named after the famous local Olympic ski run, is part of ‘Cacholet’ chalets. The large lounge/dining area has a log fireplace and French windows which open onto a terrace overlooking the Col over towards Tignes. The three bedrooms are fully ensuite with a bath and shower, basin and wc. La Face’s situation perched at the top of the building means that it gets plenty of light, with all balconies facing South and West.

As a guest at Chalet La Face, you will be welcome to make use of our very large outdoor hot tub and shower facilities, situated in the ‘Cacholet’ courtyard. La Face has free transport to and from the Snowberry ski shop next to the slopes. Free outdoor parking.

Food & Wine

Your day starts with freshly brewed tea or coffee (don’t worry, we bring real teabags from the UK) and a spread of fresh crusty baguette and jams, yoghurt, fruit and cereals on the table. The cooked breakfast menu changes every day but includes bacon, sausages, eggs, French toast, grilled tomato, succulent mushrooms, Heinz baked beans…
Once you’ve returned from your tough day on the slopes, homemade afternoon tea is served and favourites range from classic treats such as scones with cream and jam to squidgy brownies or raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes. In the evening we let our experienced hosts use their imaginations and the fantastic fresh produce we have to create a mouthwatering 3-course menu for the week. Unlimited red, rosé and white wines (from bottles, not boxes!) are served through dinner, (with coffee and chocolates in the comfy seats after your meal!). If you’re a bit of a wine buff, you can pre-order our Wine Lover's Package which is just £35pp for 6 bottles of our upgraded selection - you choose whether you'd like 6 whites, 6 reds, our mixed selection or your very own combination of the above!

Special diets

Children are equally well looked after. If you wish your youngsters to have an earlier tea – all homemade, fresh and nutritious, of course – then please let us know in advance so we can pass the message on to your host. If there’s anything you’d rather not eat, whether for moral, sensory or digestive reasons, please don’t hesitate to let us know before you travel. We won’t charge you a penny extra.

We update Chalet La Face'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 La Face in Val d'Isere, France departs Sunday 5th February 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.

Ski never-ending pistes and powder, ogle at colossal peaks and cosy Savoie architecture, then end the day with some of the most wild and wonderful après ski. Val d'Isere is considered by many to be the best ski resort on earth, and we’re inclined to agree.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere makes up half of Espace Killy which is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the attractiveness of its surroundings, the resort itself is a compilation of alpine hamlets made up of cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and eye-catching church steeple at its centre, the whole place is truly oozing alpine charm. And while dreamily trad in appearance, Val's numero...
In Val d'Isere you'll be skiing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski there, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of its premier status, the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009, along with the World Cup every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, beginners can...
Famed for its après ski, you're unlikely to have a dull evening in Val. The resort has 4 nightclubs including the legendary Dicks T Bar (open from 4pm - 5am). Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at Le Folie Douce, which boasts some of the best après ski in Europe. “Bananas” is another favourite, well known for its fantastic cocktails and convenient slope-side location.

Ash is extremely talented at both cooking and hosting – she was fab, one of the best chalet hosts ever.

"great resort, disappointing chalet"

Location - It takes about 14mins to walk to the nursery slope and ski school in Val and about the same in the other direction to La Daille. If you prefer not to walk the free bus is a couple of minutes away at the end of the road and goes every few minutes in either direction. There is also one of the medical centres nearby! There are good views from all the chalet balconies both over to Val centre and La Daille. The resort is great for all abilities. Chalet– there may be free wifi and a few other services that are classed as 4* but the chalet is really disappointing and certainly not what I would class as 4*. First impression of the chalet as you open the door and go up the stairs are that it is well travelled. The lounge and dining area are nice, the sofas are really comfortable and it is lovely and warm with the fire going. There is, oddly, a DVD player in the lounge but no TV and the radio has 20 channels all the same with no remote to reprogram. However, you then open a bedroom door and you might as well be staying in a youth hostel. Sadly although clean the rooms are drab and basic and really let this chalet down. The carpets need either a really good deep clean or replacing as goodness knows what is ingrained on them. If you are taller than about 5’4” then make sure you take the middle room as due to the sloping ceiling (as stated) especially in the en-suites anyone taller will find it very awkward standing to use the toilet or having a shower. This could be a really great chalet if the bedrooms get a makeover. Host – the host was very welcoming and accommodating and a really nice person and did do her best but you can tell it is her first season. There were several little things that a good, more experienced host wouldn’t miss. The food was good and there was far too much of it for our group. Each meal wasn’t to everybody’s taste but we were able to swap some of the dishes around a bit as we had discussed the menu at the start of the week and that was very much appreciated. Overall I would be happy to have the same host again.
