We have had a wonderful time in Val d'Isere. Yasmin (the nanny) was fantastic and allowed us to enjoy our time on the slopes, completely free of worry. Leo at Oxygene provided great lessons and our 4 year old can now bomb down the nursery slopes in a perfect snow plough. Gorgeous chalet in an ideal location. + more

We loved Grand Choucas. This is a well laid out chalet with a great location. Fabulous boot room and great temperature control in the chalet. Above all though, we had spectacular service from Rianna. She was a first class cook, very helpful and respectful. + more

Location - where is Grand Choucas

Secluded location off the high street in the very centre of resort and only 300m from the lifts and nursery slopes.


Overview - chalet description - Grand Choucas description

Grand Choucas is a contemporary chalet-apartment in the very centre of Val d’Isere. Set just back from the high street, this charismatic second floor home provides the killer combination of seclusion and convenience. A Parisian surgeon of some repute has invested splendidly of both time and money to furnish this property with taste and elegance. Picture windows spill onto the balcony and the classic mountain summits fill the sky in every direction. Plenty of toys for those inclined including a cutting edge eco-friendly ethanol fireplace. Grand Choucas is a precious commodity as it provides a lavish amount of space for groups as small as five, and plenty of room for a few more if you wish.

Meals - food and drink in Grand Choucas

Our Executive Chef is passionate about food and hugely sensitive to the appetite of a hungry skier whilst considering a balanced diet. The new and refined 2014 menus are heavy enough to reward mountain exertion yet light and simple enough to leave you grinning not groaning.

All our holidays include;

  • Continental breakfast with a cooked option on 6 mornings
  • Afternoon tea will be left in the chalet for you to help yourself to freshly made cake or biscuits, bread & jams, selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate
  • Canapés on the first and last evening
  • 3 course evening meal (6 nights) followed by cheese board and coffee
  • A choice of red and white wine is served throughout dinner
We update Grand Choucas'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 Grand Choucas in Val d'Isere, France departs Sunday 23rd April 2017, 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 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

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...

We have had a wonderful time in Val d'Isere. Yasmin (the nanny) was fantastic and allowed us to enjoy our time on the slopes, completely free of worry. Leo at Oxygene provided great lessons and our 4 year old can now bomb down the nursery slopes in a perfect snow plough. Gorgeous chalet in an ideal location.

"Nice apartment and wonderful Victoria"

We had a great week in Grand Choucas. The apartment's location is perfect. Grand Choucas is perfectly sized for 6 adults and 2 children. The apartment is nicely decorated. Concerning (the chalet company’s) services: - Victoria is really a perfect host. She is nice, calm, discrete, incredibly talented; - the food's quality (nothing to have with Victoria who cooks perfectly) is quite low. Mostly low price food (poor cheese choice from the supermarket's cheaper cheeses, same for bacon, the smoked salmon, the butter...). - The wine is ok but could be better for same price bottles - the chalet manager's first night visit: as cold as the weather outside and as quick as a thunder. We did not see her the rest of the week except when we have complained about the concierge - the concierge : not able to manage a reservation of a restaurant for one night.

"Fantastic week in Grand Choucas"

We had the most wonderful family skiing holiday, thank you so much. The apartment Grand Choucas was immaculate and accommodated both our family and parents perfectly. The location was ideal for getting to the slopes quickly and easily, as well as all the other amenities. We ate the most delicious food all week, thanks to Barry the chef - he even did pizza making and cooking with the children. Our children had a ball with their lovely nanny and they were so sad to leave at the end of their week, as were we!! We all agreed it was the best skiing holiday we had experienced and will definitely go back again!

We loved Grand Choucas. This is a well laid out chalet with a great location. Fabulous boot room and great temperature control in the chalet. Above all though, we had spectacular service from Rianna. She was a first class cook, very helpful and respectful.
