You will be welcomed to our chalet with a glass of bubbles and will experience our sort-after Chalet Service with a hearty cooked breakfast served with a selection of teas and fresh coffee, scrumptious afternoon teas, canapes and pre-dinner drinks, 4 course evening meals with bottled wine/soft drinks and after dinner drinks.
You will be able to ski out from the chalet in the mornings to the Montchavin chairlift and head up to explore 425kms of piste in Paradiski with 2 glaciers, 2 ski parks, one of the longest black runs in the mountains or an expanding beginner area at Plan Bois!
Once you have skied right back to the chalet at the end of the day, you can relax in front of the open fire and listen to your favourite tunes on our bluetooth speaker, watch a Netflix movie in the TV snug or relax in either the sauna with a view of the mountains. Take a stroll around the charming old village of Montchavin with its shops, bars and restaurants all lit up at night or simply sit on the balcony with a glass and watch the mountains turn pink at night.
To make you feel at home, in your bedroom you will find toiletries, a fluffy Egyptian cotton bath sheet, bath robe and slippers.
Once in the chalet you will find your ski passes waiting for you (we order these for you a 1 week before you arrive so any changes are easily dealt with). We have lived here for 20 years, therefore, if you are having lessons we will be able to book the best options for you and we introduce you to your instructor. For your children we can book lessons and creche options making for happy children. The creche is only 150m from the chalet. We also can book private nannies for in-house care.
We have been welcoming guests to our chalets and apartments for 20 years now and we have a very high percentage of returning guests and a lot of them have kindly left reviews.
Chalet Snowflake is in a fabulous location in Montchavin Village with stunning mountain views which light up at night. From the main living space there is a good sized balcony where you can have a glass of wine whilst watching the mountains turn a beautiful sunset pink.
Chalet Snowflake is your home for the week and, because you are in the village it makes it very easy for you to come and go as you please. If you have small children it’s easy to pop back to the chalet if they need a break. Adults too!
In the mornings you will find our staff in the kitchen preparing breakfast for you with a range of fresh fruit, yoghurts, creamy porridge, cereals, hot croissants, fresh French bread and a hot option. The hot option varies during the week with French toast with maple syrup and berries, scrambled eggs, fried eggs with sausages and bacon etc. Plenty of fruit juice, English tea and fresh coffee.
When you come back from your day on the mountain you will find a scrumptious afternoon tea waiting for you and the open fire ready to light. We have plenty of wood as there is nothing better than relaxing in front of an open fire on a winters evening.
In the evening we will be serving canapes and drinks by the fire followed by a delicious evening meal all accompanied by several nice bottles of red or white wine. Soft drinks also available.
In the living area we have a Bluetooth speaker so you can listen to your favourite tunes.
There is a small comfortable snug for those wishing to watch a movie. We also have an xbox and some old school board games available too.
The bedrooms are all ensuite (1 with a bath) 2 with balconies and 1 with a small garden. Complimentary toiletries are provided.
We have a sauna with a mountain view. Robes and slippers are provided for each of our guests.
Egyptian Cotton Fluffy Bath Sheet : perfect to wrap yourself in after your hot shower. We also provide a fluffy hand towel per person. A mid-week change is available. Hairdryer in each bedroom.
The menu will, as always, be a delicious mixture of French, European, British and Asian fusion cooking. Our hosts are hand-picked by Linda and Chris for their cooking skills, personality, life experience and enthusiasm and are backed up by our experienced management (20 years of providing ski holidays in Paradiski).
We have a passion for food and enjoy providing wonderful home cooked, dinner party style meals, for which we receive many compliments. A hearty hot breakfast (continental buffet style on the day off) sets you off perfectly for a day on the piste. When you return to the chalet you will be greeted by the afternoon tea, including a delicious home baked cake. Then sitting in front of the open fire you will be served with pre-dinner drinks with canapes, followed by a 4-course evening meal including a choice of bottled wine, finished off with fresh coffee, teas, chocolates and an after dinner drink.
You will have the opportunity to taste some of the local delicacies, such as the delicious cheeses, Beaufort and Tomme de Savoie, the mountain dish of Tarteflette and the local after dinner drink of Genepi.
Special dietary requirements are not a problem, Linda was a vegetarian for 20 years and is allergic to carrots, wheat and dairy, so we have a lot of experience in catering for all types of diets!
We have one day off during the week when you will have the opportunity to sample the regional cuisine at a local restaurant (this is not included in your holiday price), we will be happy to recommend a restaurant to suit your requirements and also to arrange this for you. Chris and Linda play in a local band called “Gurt Slush” and they normally play every Wednesday Apres Ski in La Table du Tarin Bar/Restaurant in Les Coches.
