Well-appointed, cosy chalet apartments with a superb indoor swimming-pool and sauna, within 150m of the slopes.

The Résidence offers our guests their own indoor swimming-pool, shared sauna, ski lockers, ski-room, underground parking and lifts to the chalet apartments, and the Altitude has a convenient bar to quench your après-ski thirst!
Our chalet apartments themselves are all run separately by their own dedicated Chalet Host, and are comfortably fitted and furnished, with open-plan living/dining areas, all with a crackling log fire to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, a balcony, and the Altitude chalets also have a TV. All children receive full child discounts, even when in their own bedroom, not sharing with their parents.
The Nursery rooms are in the des Neiges Résidence, whilst the Snow Club and Cocoa Club are based in the Chalet de L’Ours, adjacent to the Altitude.
Children in the child care programme will use Chalets McKinley and Olympus at lunchtime.

Rooms 1 & 4 - Double (bath/wc)
Rooms 2 & 3 - Twin with balcony (bath/wc)
Rooms 1, 2 & 3 will take a cot


For six days of the week our chalet staff, some of whom may live in the chalet, prepare all your meals, as described here. On the chalet hosts’ day off, they will leave out a simple breakfast for you, and that evening you and your family have the chance to eat out in one of the local cafés or restaurants.
The majority of our guests feel that children under 13 years can inhibit the dinner-party atmosphere at evening meals, especially if they are over-tired, so our younger guests are served high tea at about 5.30pm. We do not then allow anyone under 13 at the adult evening meals in chalets, except in our two ‘Family Dining’ chalets.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea and coffee, local bread (and croissants or ‘pains au chocolat’ in France), cold meats, cheeses and preserves, and boiled eggs. This is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself.
Afternoon tea
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you by your chalet host, ready for your return, every day except the team’s one day off each week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake.
Children’s High Tea
Served at around 5.30pm and supervised by our staff, high tea provides children under 13 with a healthy menu, but tailored more towards children’s tastes than our main adult dinner. Puréed food is available for infants on request. Chalets serve a fixed ‘menu of the day’, and parents are asked to accompany children under 36 months, whilst children 3-12 years will be supervised by staff.
Children under 13 are not allowed to join the adult-only dinner
Adult Dinner
Our four-course chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, accompanied by a choice of wines, and followed by coffee with mints or chocolates.

Crunchy Goat’s Cheese Endive Bites
Baby Bahjis with Minted Yoghurt
Tomato, Mozzarella & Basil Tart
Main Course

Wild Mushroom Pancakes

Special Diets: Vegetarian options are always available if you advise us in advance, and other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. and please advise us at the time of booking, and specify details on your Booking Form .

We are very proud of our wine selection which combines crisp and fruity whites with medium to full bodied reds, for a variety of palate.


A short button-lift close to des Neiges gives skiers direct access onto the pistes and wider lift system, and at the end of the day you can ski within just a short 1-minute walk from the Altitude Résidence.
