Location - where is Chalet Rousell

Under 1 minutes' walk (30m) from the piste and 2 minutes' walk to the main lifts

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Rousell description

If you are looking for a spacious chalet in Val d’Isère next to the piste with open fire and private bathrooms then Chalet Rousell is for you.

The chalet is just 30 metres from the piste with the main ski lifts just an extra 50 metres and then the renowned après ski and nightlife if Val d'Isère just beyond that.

The hot-tub on the terrace provides perfect relaxation at the end of a full day skiing and the comfortable lounge with warming fire may well tempt you to stay in and watch one of your favourite films on the flatscreen TV/DVD, so don't forget to bring some DVDs.

Room 5 has low eaves and is recommended for children only. It can only be booked in our family holiday weeks when parents book room 4 on the same floor. Naturally if a group with children book the whole chalet, any week can be reserved.

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

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.

We update Chalet Rousell'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.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere makes up half of Espace Killy which is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the attractiveness of its surroundings, the resort itself is a compilation of alpine hamlets made up of cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and eye-catching church steeple at its centre, the whole place is truly oozing alpine charm. And while dreamily trad in appearance, Val's numero...
In Val d'Isere you'll be skiing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski there, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of its premier status, the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009, along with the World Cup every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, beginners can...
Famed for its après ski, you're unlikely to have a dull evening in Val. The resort has 4 nightclubs including the legendary Dicks T Bar (open from 4pm - 5am). Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at Le Folie Douce, which boasts some of the best après ski in Europe. “Bananas” is another favourite, well known for its fantastic cocktails and convenient slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 92 restaurants, you'll find dishes to suit all tastes from traditional Savoyarde indulgence to Marga...

"Loved it!"

Pippa Greenway, Lytham St Annes
5/ out of 5
Loved the chalet! The location was brill, right in the middle of things and the view over to the slope where they do the nighttime skiing was fab. We absolutely adored the outdoor jacuzzi on the balcony, and looked forward to the evenings, sipping G&T's whilst relaxing in the jacuzzi and watching the activities in the square. Our bedroom was fine, clean, warm and large enough for two, maybe the shower could have had more elbow room, but it was adequate. The chalet hosts were great, nothing was too much trouble and special requests were catered for without any problem (earl grey tea, yay!). Boot room facilities - were large enough to cater for the chalet and the boot warmers were appreciated, the only down side being the sometimes precarious snow slope to get to it. The proximity to the ski hire shop was much appreciated, as was the proximity to the slopes, which almost made it "ski-in" I think the chalet is best suited to couples; and the small size of the chalet makes it easy to get to know the other guests, you didn't feel like strangers. I'd rate the chalet at 4.5/5 for the price, the main criticisms being the size of the shower and the infrequent changing of the towels/nowhere to hang them to dry properly (& a broken jacussi top). Val D'Isere itself was a fun place, with plenty to do in the evening (if you wanted to); plenty of bars/restaurants, shops for browsing and a weekly street party with free gluhwein, hic! I'd definately be very happy to go back to the same chalet again, but this year we're off to Austria with friends. Oops, nearly forgot to mention the great skiing area!

"Wonderful place to relax very near the skiing"

There’s nothing better than a soak in a hot tub to get rid of any aches and pains resulting from a day on the slopes. So slip into the Jacuzzi on the balcony (check the hot tub is operating on your dates "before" you book) at the Rousset and you’ll also be able to gaze out at the wintery wonderland of Val d’Isere. Most of the rooms are en suite and all have private facilities (double check this before you book), and the closest lifts and nightlife less than a hundred metres away, so the location is pretty perfect as well. You can also virtually ski back to the door at the end of the day.
