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 the ‘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.

Guests in La Face can now use our new comprehensive shuttle service to and from the slopes in the morning and evening.

As a guest at Chalet La Face, you will be welcome to make use of our two new outdoor hot tubs and shower facilities, situated in the ‘Cacholet' courtyard.

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.

This package holiday to Chalet La Face in Val d'Isere, France departs Sunday 6th February 2022, 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 world's 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 (pronounced: val de saire/sare/ser or val d sere) is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the giddyingly gorgeous surroundings, the resort itself is one of France's prettiest - a huddle alpine hamlets formed from cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and a Christmas-card-worthy church steeple at its centre, there’s alpine charm by the bucket load. While dre...
Skiers in Val d'Isere are schussing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski here, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of this place's premier status - the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics, the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009 and World Cup events every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, begi...
Famed for its après ski, there's no chance of a dull evening in Val. Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at the original Le Folie Douce, which brings you some of the best après ski in Europe - including dancers, musicians, raining champagne and much more... Once that closes, Dicks T Bar's a local legend, staying open into the early hours each night. Bananas is another firm favourite, much loved for its crafty cocktails and slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 90-something restaurants, ...

"Chalet La Face, April 2013"

"great resort, disappointing chalet"

B Adams
3/ out of 5
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.
