About the property

Catered Chalet in Peisey, Les Arcs, French Alps - Close To Ski Lifts, Connected To Huge Ski Area

This typical Savoyarde Chalet is in a perfect location in the resort of Peisey (altitude 1450m), 150m to it's services and the ski lift which links to Les Arcs or La Plagne. You have the choice to take a high speed chair to Les Arcs or cable car to La Plagne via the re-known quaint lobster pot lifts from our village. The chalet has been completely renovated and has a superb view from the fabulous penthouse suite on the top floor! All rooms now have ensuite facilities and are spacious giving comfort beyond the norm in most chalets. Most bedrooms have a balcony too. In the chalet there is a good size lounge with an open fireplace leading out onto a terrace with lovely views. Wifi (winter months only) Satellite TV, DVD player, Games console is provided. There is a dining area which seats up to 20 and a separate fully equipped kitchen. There is a separate heated area to store skis and boots plus a Sauna. We offer lift pass discounts as well as reductions on ski and boot hire. We also have an in house ski hire which is suitable for beginners to good intermediates. This chalet is available on a catered basis - all prices are quoted for catered per person. It can be taken self catered during the summer months. We have Professional chefs to run this chalet who produce delicious meals from all around the world. We are also happy to offer a kid's tea at an earlier time should it be required. If you really want to rent this chalet without the half board option - we will consider it on certain weeks.

The top floor is huge and will sleep a family of 4/5 or friends on the entire floor - and it has a lounge giving you two separate living spaces so the kids can chill out with their friends or the adults can escape for peace and quiet! All bedrooms now have ensuite bathrooms, mainly showers.

During the warmer months, you can benefit from the sunny terrace enjoying an après-ski drink in the sun. We have had this chalet for 20 years and still have guests returning year after year.

It is built in a traditional style but has all mod cons so comfort is foremost. The bedrooms on the 3rd floor have balconies all around offering fabulous views from every angle down the valley and to the Bellecote glacier too. The top floor also has a balcony with great views down the valley.

During the summer months it is priced as self catered for the entire chalet - please ask for more details. In the summer, there are plenty of activities to do - mountain biking is the most popular at the moment making this a very busy village during July and August but you can also escape in to the mountains on a hike or down the river on a raft. It really is a spectacular place to spend summer holidays and beats those busy beaches on the coast!

With the use of the network of lifts to save your legs from too much uphill work, there are marked mountain bike trails, white water rafting with Franceraft who will also organise canoeraft, hydrospeeding and pargliding too. There is also a small lake 10kms away which is popular as a place to just cool down and take it easy! Nearby you can visit places of interest - Tignes with its lake and dam, Bourg St Maurice (market day on a Saturday), Italy (over the pass), Annecy and its stunning lake and town.

We offer great discounts when taking the whole chalet so please contact us with your group size and we'll see what we can do! In Janauary for example we can offer the entire chalet at £5200 catered for your group!! So with discounts on passes and ski hire, you could really get a reasonable priced Holiday in Janauary for a large group of friends!

About Melanie Lowe

Colin and Melanie started life in France over 20 years ago, working 'seasons' winter and summer and travelling the world in between, until they settled in Peisey Nancroix 20 years ago, when they found their first chalet. Live is different now they have children, but this lovely traditional village is perfect for families and has the added bonus of being linked to a huge ski resort - what more could you want?!!

Why Melanie Lowe chose Le Villaret

Traditional ski resort linked to large ski domain of Paradiski, whilst retaining it's charm! Pretty in summer and very convenient in winter. Even though when we moved here Peisey was little known and was linked only to Les Arcs, it has still stayed the same but it has become well known and linked to one of the biggest resorts in the world.

What makes this chalet unique

Rustic charm with all mod cons make this a beautiful place to stay and with the added bonus of a sauna after a hard day on the mountain!! Close to the ski lift and with easy access to high skiing, a superb place to be based to explore Les Arcs and La Plagne. If you are a few families or a group of friends or even just coming as a small group in a share chalet - this works well. Our fabulous chefs will feed you well and look after you during your stay - our aim is make sure you have the best Holiday possible!
