Great experience, and very pleased with Hugo and the Penthouse. Only negatives were that room 2 has very little storage – nowhere to hang a shirt properly, all the other rooms have much more storage.

Overview - chalet description - No 3 Penthouse description

It took us ten years to do the deal, but this Spring with a local partner, we (at last) bought the top floor of the best located building in Avoriaz and are busy transforming twelve 1970’s apartments into three fabulous contemporary spaces. No.3 Penthouse Suite is the largest and most adaptable of the three units on our private 9th floor and offers three en suite bedrooms, two of which have additional bunk beds giving flexible accommodation for groups and families of 6 to 10.

We’ve tried to include a nod to 1960s Avoriaz glamour in the décor whilst remembering that you still want a warm classic alpine home after a hard day on the hill. There are fabulous views to the horizon from the top floor and immediate lift access to waft you to and from the piste and bustling resort centre far below. The suite is entirely independent with open plan living/dining area and contemporary fireplace, surround sound TV, DVD, WiFi, flat screen TV’s in the bedrooms and a dedicated chalet host.

Call quick, flexible accommodation like this in a killer location doesn’t usually stay on the shelf for long.

Meals - food and drink in No 3 Penthouse

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 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 No 3 Penthouse'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 No 3 Penthouse in Avoriaz, France departs Sunday 15th April 2018, 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.

A purpose built resort with character, Avoriaz’s wood-clad buildings have a striking appearance that set it apart from other destinations. Even more striking is the 360° panorama of the Alps – Avoriaz is located right in the centre of the stunning Portes du Soleil. Completely ski in/out, a holiday in Avoriaz means you don’t have to lug your equipment around and can maximise time on the slopes. It’s also completely car-free and has a new car park and arrivals area where you can unload luggage and travel b...
This is one of our favourite resorts to bring the brood: thanks to a huge and central children’s village, complete with a specialised snowboarding area, children can learn to ski and ride in a fun and safe environment. Avoriaz is one of the only resorts that has a Beginner Pass – letting you find your feet on easy terrain via 14 lifts without the expense of a full lift pass. Beginners-only piste Première Glisse gives you the chance to improve at your own pace, while Proclu and Q’mont are easy blues for cruis...
While Avoriaz isn’t renowned for its nightlife, it nevertheless has an array of restaurants, bars and off-slope activities that contribute to a lively après ski scene. Le Tavallion is an English themed pub for a home-from-home atmosphere, Shooters is good for party-lovers while Le Choucas and Le Yak tend to be the venues of choice for late night clubbing. With sister restaurants in glamorous St Tropez and Marrakesh, La Table du Marché is a place to fine-dine in style. Alongside a few of the pubs, Chez Flo s...

"Review of Penthouse 3 – Room 2"

Sheldon Cuthbert
5/ out of 5
Great experience, and very pleased with Hugo and the Penthouse. Only negatives were that room 2 has very little storage – nowhere to hang a shirt properly, all the other rooms have much more storage. It would be nice to have boot warmers, as would be expected at this level of properties. Penthouse building lifts were much better than anticipated – I thought this would be a bottleneck, but we never had to wait long. Hugo worked very hard throughout the week. We will definitely be back again next year.

Had a fantastic time in Avoriaz. Millie and Jenni were great hosts, food and drink was excellent. The apartment is lovely and in a fantastic location.

"A lovely week"

Marianne Phillips
4/ out of 5
The apartment was lovely and very comfortable and it felt very much like home from home. We had the two bedroom suite downstairs and the main room had the most amazing views, although our friend in room 2 wasn’t quite so lucky as it only had a small window! However both rooms and bathroom were of a high standard with plenty of storage, hot water and very comfortable beds. We were also blessed with the best week’s skiing so far this season and being able to ski in and out added to our pleasure. We also fell in love with Avoriaz, having only previously seen it on brief visits – it really is a very pretty resort with great facilities on the doorstep. The transfer went well with the exeption of coming into Terminal 1 at Geneva, then having to walk to Terminal 2 to het our bags! - not the chalet companies fault though. Our chalet host, Hugo attended to our needs although, (and I must admit our first chalet host experience with this company was exemplary), we did feel that he could have done with a bit more assistance, not least that he worked more functionally rather than really engaged with his guests. We were aware though, that he’d been brought in from another chalet to cover sickness so it may have been a bit alien for him to work alone. The food was good but not exceptional (as in our previous chalet). Portion control was varied and the bacon and tomato each morning was always cold for some reason. We also ran out of tea bags on the chalet staff night off (I got some in from another penthouse) but when it was mentioned to Hugo there was no apology which would have been welcomed. Alys, our resort manager, was very good though and her short story about us all at the end of the holiday was excellent – a novelist in the making! A couple of niggles – too much noise coming from the open plan kitchen in the morning whilst we were trying to sleep, a locker too small to hold 9 pairs of skis – the other penthouses had the same size locker for far less people and we resorted to leaving our skis in the hall. Also no boot warmer. So all in all it was a good week, although, sadly, it did not live up to the exemplary holiday we’d had with the same company in Val d’Isere a couple of years ago.
