Location - where is Chalet Nepenthe

Chalet Nepenthe is in the Topaze building in the private enclave of Les Carats with secure access. It is 200m from the La Face piste and a 10 minute walk from the village center. Geneva 170km, Chambery 135km, Lyon 234km.


Overview - chalet description - Chalet Nepenthe description

‘Nepenthe’ is an ancient Greek word meaning something that chases away sorrow. We think this is a pretty fair reflection of what skiing vacations are all about. This delightful three bedroom apartment is snug but makes an ideal retreat for a family to enjoy a thoroughly relaxing week. It's located in the exclusive private enclave of Les Carats. The famous La Face piste is only 200m away, making Nepenthe nearly ski in / ski out. Although the bedrooms are small it is stylishly decorated and feels much like an authentic Alpine chalet inside.

Chalet Nepenthe is on the second and third floors of the Topaze building and is accessed by the lift. On the lower floor there is an open plan living area with a fireplace, huge sofas that you sink into and a large south facing balcony which looks onto the forest behind which is ideal for soaking up the sun in the second half of the season. The kitchen is open plan so that you can see the chef host at work and discuss your skiing plans at breakfast.

The master double bedroom has a partially open plan bathroom and a balcony with a view of the Eleina mountain. The second double bedroom is on the same floor and has an en suite shower room.

Up the internal staircase is a small twin room which is ideal for children. It has a balcony and a small shower room. Just next door is the “den” – a separate TV and games room that gives the children some of their own space.

A ski/boot room with boot warmers is located on the ground floor with access to the chalet via a lift or stairs. All of our chalets are non-smoking inside.

The entire apartment has been finished to a high standard with a mixture of tiled and wooden floors. For a family wanting a skiing vacation with privacy and peace and quiet, the combination of ‘Nepenthe’ and our revered chalet service is hard to beat.


Families - any extra notes for parents with children

Children are expertly looked after by a qualified private nanny. Our handpicked childcare team are qualified professionals, whose enthusiasm and nurturing abilities are in abundance, so much so that both parents and children often ask to take them home. In Val d’Isère our chalet guests have the choice of a private nanny or our exclusive Explorers kids club .

We look after children from as young as four months, making sure the entire family has a relaxed, fun and memorable vacation. Our team organize age appropriate activities and can take the older ones to and from ski school, allowing you to spend all day on the slopes. A nutritious lunch is served each day, as well as healthy snacks, with any dietary requirements taken into account and your child’s routine will be strictly adhered to. We can also provide a wide range of equipment for babies and toddlers on request, including nappies and wipes, usually free of charge. And if you’d like to go out in the evening, we can provide babysitting.

Explorers kids club : Run by qualified nannies, our purpose built kids club in Val d’Isere is available exclusively to guests and is open seven days a week. Each day promises an imaginative and entertaining program of both indoor and outdoor activities, so parents can spend the day on the slopes knowing your children are in expert hands. Snacks and lunches are freshly made each day and we also operate a driver service that can take your children to and from ski school.

Available for five days a week, they ensure your children enjoy a range of activities, whilst adhering to their home routines. They can also take children to, and collect from ski school each day.

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, ...
