A 5 minutes’ downhill walk (500m) from the chalet leads to a bridge where skiers can join the blue Plein Sud piste, ski through the resort and link with ease into the rest of the ski area.
The free and regular resort shuttle bus stops only 400m away with buses every 20 minutes for the additional convenience of guests.
Chalet Le Sommet is situated in a panoramic location high up at the top of the resort with sensational views over the village, valley and mountains. Le Sommet is an individual chalet that adjoins the ‘Des Neiges Residence’. It is close to the resort centre and offers good ski access as well as comfortable bedrooms, each with en suite facilities and a balcony, and there are two rooms with additional bunks, ideal for families.
A particularly attractive feature is the impressive lounge/dining room with its vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and picture windows affording stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
In addition all guests have free use of the sauna and swimming pool in the adjoining ‘Des Neiges Residence’, which is open from 1600-2000 every day except Saturday.

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.
