Location

From the Owner

We discovered the soon to be Paradiski in 2002 on a family ski holiday and fell in love with Montchavin. We had at last found a French Ski Resort with Character - a real farming village. We left City Life and over 7 years have thoughtfully renovated the chalet to what has now become a wonderful family home for us and an excellent serviced chalet for our guests. The stunning views, the ski in access and the tranquility of the chalet perched on the side of the mountain with views over Mont Blanc make us a superb venue all year round. The summer is as stunning as the winter. We are sat under the Vanoise Express linking Les Arcs and La Plagne and with over 425 kms of Piste, special priced Family Passes, Learn to Ski packages and a Professional Chef - all the elements for a great skiing holiday.

We are happy to welcome any special interest group into our chalet. We have already welcomed walkers/artists, a film crew and cycling clubs.

We are close to a large White Water Rafting Center and canoeing center. We are in an ideal situation for cyclists - both road and mountain biking.

There are public lakes 'Plans d'eau' which have lifeguards all summer which make for a lovely 'beach' experience with clean, Alpine water and a sandy beach for little ones. By walking up the mountains or taking the chair lifts, there are stunning alpine lakes. A large swimming complex with outdoor, indoor pools, a pampering spa and exercise classes is open for 8 months of the year.

A car is not essential as the nearest train station is only 7 kms away and there is everything one could need in resort during the summer and winter seasons.The baker and supermarket also deliver free of charge. The nearest airports are Chambery, Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble and Turin.We offer transfers from all airports.Driving is approx. 9 hours from Calais. Eurostar and the snow train stop nearby in the winter months - one can get here easily by train from the UK. We have a free navette all year.
