About Kate Claridge

Our chalet/apartment is shared by four siblings. Our parents bought it in the 1980's and we have all enjoyed skiing at the various resorts in the Isere valley, first as a whole family and more latterly with our own families on an at least annual basis. More recently we have traveled out in the summer and been amazed at how beautiful is the scenery and how much there is to do when the snow has melted. As we are all tied down to jobs and school terms, we decided to let the chalet for other times - apart from making the chalet pay its way, we are also pleased that others can enjoy the mountains at a reasonable cost.

Why Kate Claridge chose Bourg-Saint-Maurice

We are all keen skiers and so after skiing in various resorts, my parents bought this chalet for its proximity to many different ski resorts with a good snow record and ease of access; as students we would travel to Bourg by train to ski independently with friends. Over the years the resorts have all developed and some new ones appeared so the chalet has offered the necessary variety. Some of us hire a local guide to discover more remote off piste and mountain activities. More recently we have discovered downhill biking, extended mountain walks using refuge accommodation, as well as enjoying the flora and fauna of the mountains in the summer.

What makes this chalet unique

Convenience to local town. Fantastic variety of skiing. Wide ranging activities in the summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had such a wonderful time and your chalet is just perfect with beautiful views. I shall definitely recommend to friends / family who are going out that way. Thanks again for your help.'

'We enjoyed the trip, the apartment was very convenient and warm and the snow was great, thanks for letting us stay.'

'We had a good holiday, were pleased with the house and enjoyed the skiing and Bourg'

Hope you get many more bookings going forward - Bourg is a really good base in the Alps and your chalet is very convenient, flexible and well priced.

Thanks again for everything.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

In a quiet part of Bourg Saint Maurice, with wonderful views across the valley towards Les Arcs. It was also a dog friendly property, with great walks nearby.
