Location - where is Chalet Rousell

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.

Meals - food and drink in Chalet Rousell

We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff involved in food preparation are trained to the City & Guilds qualification – Level 2 in Food Safety during the pre-season training course. There is a continental breakfast is every morning and a breakfast hot option, afternoon tea and evening dinners are provided for six days of the week in both chalets and Chalet Hotels.

Breakfast

A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a hot option, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff day off, only the continental breakfast will be provided.

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 day off. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready.

Children's High Tea

In chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 11 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.

Dinner in Chalets

In the evenings our hosts will cook you a three-course adult only meal six nights a week. This starts with a glass of prosecco followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert – with unlimited complimentary red, white and rosé wine during service! There is also an option for vegetarians, please warn us in advance.

One of these meals will be a regional meal with the menu depending on which country you are staying in.

On the staff one night off per week just a continental breakfast is provided and it’s a great opportunity for you to experience some local restaurants in your resort. Speak to your resort representative for recommendations and help with reservations.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are available in our properties – just advise us at time of bookings so that we can ensure that our staff can prepare. 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. Our Chalet Hosts will discuss your dietary requirements with you upon arrival to the chalet or Chalet Hotel.

Christmas and New Year

All of our chalets and Chalet Hotels will serve a traditional Christmas dinner with a glass of Champagne to start off the evening. This will include roast turkey with all of the trimmings, Christmas pudding, mince pies, crackers and party hats plus a fantastic Alpine atmosphere in which to enjoy the day.

A special festive menu will also be served on New Year’s Eve, alongside the added bonus that many resorts put on fantastic firework displays. A glass of fizz, whilst watching fireworks over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps.. what better way to bring in the New Year!

Our Quality Wines

We are very proud of our wine selection for chalets and Chalet Hotels, which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full-bodied reds, for a variety of palates. We select our wines in conjunction with our good friends Nicolas and Véronique – the third generation in the Perret family’s fine wine business based in the Savoie. Nicolas is a qualified wine expert, having trained at the prestigious Burgundy Wine University in Beaune. Each season in October, Nicolas & Véronique bring over a new selection for us to sample (someone has to do it!) and together we choose our wines for the coming season, based on our menus and their pure enjoyment factor. Wine is an incredibly subjective and emotive subject, however, the feedback we have received from our guests over recent seasons endorses our aims of providing wines to enhance your meal and to suit most tastes. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!

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.

Ski never-ending pistes and powder, ogle at colossal peaks and cosy Savoie architecture, then end the day with some of the world's most wild and wonderful après ski. Val d'Isere is considered by many to be the best ski resort on earth, and we’re inclined to agree.

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, ...

"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.
