About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Chalet sleeps 10-12

Chalet Mathilde is a stylish and beautifully equipped traditional alpine chalet completely refurbished in 2012. Ideally situated for access to various ski resorts in the winter and all mountain based activities in the summer. It is set in good sized grounds away from its neighbours and the chalet affords privacy and outside space to those visiting.

Chalet Mathilde has five bedrooms, four bathrooms and whether you are booking on a catered or self-catered basis you will have sole occupancy.

****** Catered Ski and Snowboard Holidays ******

www.alpinevista.co.uk/winter-holidays

In the winter, the chalet is ideally located for Les Arcs with its 450km of varied ski runs, the family friendly resort of Sainte Foy and 4 other world class ski resorts including Val d'Isere, Tignes, La Rosiere and La Plagne, meaning you can ski 6 different resorts in the week you stay with us if you wish to.

Although we’re not ski-in/ski-out, there’s no trudging around in ski boots since we will drive you the short distance, at times to suit. The chalet is less than 10 minutes from Les Arcs, 15 from Sainte Foy and La Rosiere and just over 20 minutes from Val d'Isere and Tignes.

Our catered option includes:

• Breakfast (cooked and continental options)

• Afternoon tea with home-baked cake

• Delicious 3-course evening meal including wine

• Children's menu available at a time to suit you.

• Very flexible minibus shuttle to lifts

NB. Catering is provided on all days apart from the host's day off (usually a Wednesday). This does not affect the daily minibus shuttles.

We do offer the chalet on a self catered basis during the winter as well so please do ask for a quote.

****** Catered Road Cycling Holidays ******

www.alpinevista.co.uk/cycling-holidays

We specialise in catered, self-guided cycling holidays for all ages and abilities where you can test your fitness and cycling prowess by day and relax in comfortable luxury by night! Your group will have sole occupancy of our 5 bedroom chalet and grounds for the length of your stay.

The Savoie region of the French Alps is a real hot spot for road cycling and our chalet is located right in the heart of it. Whether you are looking to test yourself up some of the Tour de France climbs, or have a gentle cycle through the valley, you can do it straight from the front door! The chalet is set in the valley just outside Bourg-St-Maurice which means that each ride starts and finishes on the flat – a real rarity in the Mountains!

Our package consists of:

- Board (with linen and towels)

- Breakfast (cooked and continental options)

- Afternoon tea with home-made cake

- 3-course evening meal with unlimited wine

- Minibus taxi service to town on host’s day off (7 night stays only)

- Electronic cycle route planners and information

- Emergency pick-up service

The prices for our catered cycling holidays are advertised on our website (link at the bottom of this page) so please contact us directly if interested.

****** Self Catered Holidays ******

www.alpinevista.co.uk/self-catered-holidays

Whilst we specialise in catered ski and road cycling holidays throughout the year, we are also able to offer self-catered holidays for people who want a more independent experience. The chalet is equipped with everything you might need to make your holiday run smoothly.

The chalet is set in a small hamlet of 3 houses, away from the hustle and bustle of the local towns, however both Bourg-St-Maurice and Ste Foy Tarentaise are easily accessible by car in less than 10 minutes.

The chalet itself has plenty of outside space to enjoy the wonderful weather the region has to offer. To make the most of it, there is a balcony at the front of the property which has plenty of space and outside furniture for al-fresco dining with views of the Isère River opposite. To the side and rear of the property, there is a beautiful decking area consisting of a BBQ and further seating with space for all!

The Savoie region of the Alps has so much to see and do and the chalet sits right in the heart of it. We think this makes it the ideal base for active holidays.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have just returned from another fab week at Alpine Vista. Nothing was too much trouble for Ben and Maddison and the freshly prepared breakfast and evening meals fantastic. The chalet is fab for 8-10 people and there is always plenty of hot water!! The chalet is perfect is you want to ski a number of the best resorts (all less than 30 mins away) during your week in the French Alps. Ben drove us to Les Arcs, Tignes, St Foy and La Rossiere (didn't manage to fit in Val d-Isere) and he was there at the end of the day to take us home to late afternoon homemade cake and fresh coffee. A fantastic week again. Thanks Ben & Maddison.

Superb chalet, brilliant location, biking heaven.

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place for a summer holiday!! Family with 4 teens fitted this superb chalet with room to spare. Facilities superb, bedrooms all well appointed and a brilliant kitchen. The house was clean and spacious, very comfortable even had UK TV, not that you need it, too much to do!! Even a very helpful but unobtrusive host downstairs! (Thank you Ben). Whether it's walking cycling, taking in the scenery or just hanging out in the chalet this is a brilliant place to stay. Loads of fantastic cycling routes locally to inspire you. Beautiful and challenging climbs, valley rides, mountain biking as well, this is bike heaven!! The non bikers in the family loved the area as well, some lovely restaurants nearby and the chalet is really well situated for exploration of the wider area. Couldn't fault it. Planning a September biking holiday here next year, so must get back to the fitness training!!

New Year 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was the best catered chalet we have had in 7 years. Fantastic property, beautifully renovated and furnished. Our hosts were top class. Their food, transportation, and attention to the needs of our large two family group couldn't be beaten.

A great New Year in a great location.

Perfect base for cycling

  • 5 of 5

A group of five of us stayed for a week in June for a road cycling holiday. The chalet is in a perfect location to tackle some incredible climbs.... Cormet de Roselend, Col de L'Iseran, Col du Petit St Bernard (to Italy and back!)....Tour de France classics straight from the front door - no need for a support van to take your bikes to the foot of the climbs. Already planning next year's trip.

Comfortable owner run chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with Ben and Maddison. 4 adults and 3 teens. Plenty of space for everybody to spread out. Very comfortable. Very comfy bad. Clean. Great cooking. Minibus service works well; we just sent a message at the end of the day and Ben would be waiting for us.

We got the Les Arcs pass. Quite busy and bad weather meant everybody tried to ski low down so was busy around Arc 1800 and Vallandry. Always a bit quieter around Arc 1600 and Plan Peissy.

Would definitely go back to Chalet Mathilde again and would consider skiing different resorts on a day by day basis.

Excellent and very friendly

  • 5 of 5

For those that might be put off by lack of ski to door - don't be!! Minibus service was very efficient and eliminated walking with skis. Chalet very comfortable and the hospitality provided by Ben and Maddison was excellent. Intend to book for next year if we can!
