NEWLY IMPROVEDFABULOUS PISTE SIDE CHALET FOR 22 GUESTS

FILL THIS CHALET AND GET ONE AND A HALF FREE PLACES


We are delighted to say that the owners of this fabulous chalet are making a lot of important improvements to the Chalet Rikiki we all know and love, well in time for December 2023. In the lounge there'll be new sofas, new armchairs and new coffee tables. In the bedrooms there'll be new headboards and new bedside tables and in the entrance hall there'll be new benches and ski storage.

A week in Rikiki is what we believe chalet holidays are all about: great piste-side location, comfortable ensuite bedrooms and a lively atmosphere with likeminded people sharing stories around the dinner table!

Our largest chalet in Courchevel, Rikiki is close to the nursery slopes and was built to a superb modern design, giving all 12 bedrooms ensuite bathroom facilities with either bath or shower.

The double height ceiling makes the lounge and dining area bright and spacious, especially as the French windows open onto a large piste-side terrace. A large open log fireplace adds to the cosy atmosphere in the lounge.

The chalet was built - and is still owned by - a local family with the classic mix of winter time ski instructors and summertime builders. They clearly have a sense of humour too - Rikiki is enormous but in French slang it means "absolutely tiny".

To access the pistes, grab your skis from the boot room and walk up the side of the chalet, across the snow and you'll be on the nursery slope less than a minute's ski to the main lift.

You can also ski back right onto the terrace of Rikiki and you could even get straight into the hot tub - but we'd recommend changing out of your ski gear first...

Rikiki really is the perfect Alpine chalet, which is why it is always booked so far in advance! Get in here while you can.

Relax with coffee and chocolates after dinner… if you have any room left!

Your Chalet Host will prepare home-made, nutritious and fun dinners the kids will love!

Please let us know if you would like early dinner times or have special requests by calling us.

Chalet host days off

Your Chalet Host has two days off during the week (usually Tuesday and Friday). We will lay out continental breakfast and afternoon tea to help yourself to.

In the evening, it’s a great chance to sample the local cuisine and your Guest Services Manager in resort will be happy to make a restaurant reservation for you.

We update Chalet Rikiki'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 Rikiki in Courchevel, France departs Sunday 17th March 2024, 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 2024 was between €1 and €3 per person, per night.
