Alongside its sister chalets Mathilda, Alice and Marie, Chalet Pauline epitomizes the clever blend of the classic-look ski chalet allied with feature packed facilities to give some of the best ski chalet accommodation in the Alps. The design incorporates copious amounts of wood and as soon as you enter the chalet you are cosseted by the calm and warmth of the chalet - exactly what you would expect a traditional chalet to offer. The size of the chalet is impressive for a five bedroom property. The second floor living room is dominated by the open fireplace and panoramic windows overlooking Val d'Isère and the surrounding mountains. In warmer weather there's nothing better than sipping champagne on the balcony as the sun slowly slips behind the snow covered peaks. The living area is open plan, with a separate kitchen. Beautifully presented meals are served by your private chef on the main dining table although a smaller dining alcove allows children to have their own dinner party away from the adults. As you would expect from a chalet of this quality, Pauline boasts a comprehensive entertainment system plus wifi throughout and TVs with UK channels in each bedroom.
Above the living area, one bedroom occupies the whole top floor, giving the perfect place to rest your tired limbs, kept warm by luxuriously fluffy duvets. Of the other bedrooms, each is dominated by the warm wood, but each is distinct in its character - Chalet Pauline does not do standard box shaped rooms! Three of these bedrooms are on the first floor including (arguably) the master room with it separate dressing area, well crafted bathroom and views towards the mountains.
The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor, next to the wellness area of the Chalet Pauline. Relaxing after a day's skiing is a vital part of any ski vacation, and what better way than to take a relaxed swim in the swimming pool before soothing muscles and cleansing your skin in the steam room. Alternatively just sit back on a lounger and drift off in anticipation of a pre-dinner glass of champagne. There is a separate TV room on the ground floor which is a great place for children to play or for some of your party to enjoy a film. The ground floor is completed by the ski room with the heated boot rack making sure your boots are perfectly ready for the next day's skiing.
Although the shuttle service will take you to the lifts, the chalet is in the quiet and exclusive Les Fermes area of Val d'Isère, only a 10 minute walk to the center of the village. Close enough for convenience but secluded enough to avoid any late night noise from the village.
Chalet Pauline effortlessly blends the best of traditional chalet architecture with modern day sophistication to deliver an outstanding luxury chalet experience. If your requirements for a ski chalet vacation are traditional design, spacious living areas and bedrooms, en-suite facilities, swimming pool, steam room, open log fire, delicious food and wine served beautifully and modern entertainment systems then it delivers perfectly. Whether you are traveling with children or a group of adults, Chalet Pauline will take it all in its stride.
