About the property

Ski Chalet in Montchavin, La Plagne, France : Catered or self -catered , Sleeps 8-10, Excellent Location, Fantastic Views,

– sleeps 8-10

– fully catered, self catered or part-catered (by arrangement)

– heart of the Paradiski area

– tranquil setting

– uniquely personalised service

– tastefully decorated traditional chalet

– wood burning stove

– less than 1 minute walk to piste

– free navette service

The beautiful Chalet des Aiguilles nestles just above the charming traditional alpine village of Montchavin, and offers a wonderful setting for the perfect Paradiski experience.

The start of your day’s skiing could not be simpler as the chalet is less than a minute’s walk away from the piste. A 30 second ski down an easy blue run takes you to the main Montchavin lift, which opens up the entire Paradiski ski area. The location is ideal for novice skiers and experts alike – at the end of the day competent skiers can even ski right back to the chalet, conditions allowing. For beginners, the same short walk leads you back to the chalet door.

The interior of the chalet is decorated in traditional Savoyard style and is spread over three levels . There is a lovely terrace with magnificent views over the Mont Blanc massif, where on warmer evenings an apres ski drink can be enjoyed. There is an enclosed garden to the rear of the chalet , where children can safely play. Inside, the cosy lounge area has a wood burning stove and inviting sofas, providing a lovely area for friends and family to relax and unwind after a day on the slopes.

The chalet is ideal for one or two families sharing, or adult groups. It comfortably sleeps 10 adults in spacious rooms, with stunning views over the surrounding mountains. The sleeping arrangements are flexible, with the fourth bedroom easily convertible into a dorm-style room sleeping 4 adults/older children in a combination of bunk beds/ single beds/double bed.There is also space for small children to share the upper bedrooms with parents using either travel cots or pull out mattress beds if so desired.

Flexibility is at the heart of what we offer. You can therefore rent the chalet on a fully catered, self-catered or partially-catered basis depending on your requirements.

The chalet is ideally situated, with the villages of Montchavin and its neighbour Les Coches both only a short walk away. There is also a free navette bus running from just outside the chalet to both villages for those who prefer to save their legs for skiing! The villages have a wide choice of bars, restaurants and shops which are well worth a visit.

About Astrid Cunningham

Just over a decade ago we stumbled across Montchavin and have been returning to this beautiful village every year since for both our summer and winter holidays. Year after year we mused about getting out of the rat race , buying our own chalet and helping others sample the delights which this wonderful area has to offer.

Then we stumbled across the beautiful Chalet des Aiguilles, gave up the day jobs, and our musings became reality!

We have been skiing as a family, and individually, for over 20 years and feel we have a pretty good idea of what it takes to make a really fabulous alpine holiday- a warm welcome on arrival , relaxing environment, exemplary service, delicious plentiful food and drink, easy access to the slopes, a charming location – and at Chalet des Aiguilles we can guarantee all of these ingredients and more!

We are owner-hosts and so we are not tied to “company rules”. We can therefore be truly flexible and tailor your holiday arrangements to suit you, offering a uniquely personalised service. Right from the time you book your stay with us to the day your stay ends , we will be available to offer help and advice on all aspects of your holiday.

See you soon!

Fantastic hosts and lovely chalet

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable and well-equipped chalet. Sam and Astrid were the perfect hosts from the moment we arrived, from making much needed cups of tea on arrival to welcome drinks, helping us collect our skis, getting two tired and cold boys home quickly on Christmas Day, laying the fire each day and easing the pain of packing at the end of the stay with mulled wine! Nothing was too much trouble for them and we were made to feel very welcome. We would highly recommend a stay in Chalet les Aiguilles.

Fabulous chalet - perfect for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Chalet des Aiguilles for a week over Easter 2016. We were two families of 4 with young children (ages 4-11)..

Sam and Astrid, the hosts, were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They organised our ski passes before we arrived, made a delicious cake for our arrival, and provided very helpful advice on ski schools, non-skiing activities, restaurants, etc with their detailed knowledge of the area. They seem to know everyone in Montchavin! We chose to go self-catering for most of the week, with Sam and Astrid cooking some amazing food on two nights of our holiday.

Our group consisted of skiers and non-skiers, first time-skiers and more experienced skiers. We found that Montchavin and the Paradiski area suited all our needs perfectly, with lots of walking and snow shoe trails, and a huge ski area, so that even over the Easter break the ski slopes seldom felt crowded. Skiers and non-skiers could easily meet for lunch in one of the many mountain restaurants, as some of the walking trails go past the restaurants on the ski slopes.

It was wonderful to return from a day’s skiing to find the log burner already alight (thank you Sam!), have a hot bath or shower and then settle down with a glass of wine, and gaze towards Montblanc.

We had a brilliant time and have recommended the chalet to all our friends. We will definitely be returning. Merci!

Absolutely fabulous Alpine chalet

  • 5 of 5


A beautiful chalet in a stunning location. Just a minute's walk (honestly!) from the piste and hundreds of kilometres of fabulous skiing, and a great place for the very little ones to find their ski legs for the first time. Montchavin is a gorgeous village, with lovely bars and restaurants, of which Sam has an encyclopaedic knowledge. The restaurant at The 3 Glaciers is particularly recommended.

We were self-catering but Sam cooked us a delicious meal on our last night - what a treat!

Sam looked after us superbly and was so welcoming. Thank you so much - can't wait to come back!

The wonderful Chalet des Aiguilles in Montchavin

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from one of the best skiing trips ever, thanks to Sam & Astrid the owner/hosts of this beautiful chalet & we can't wait to go back.

The property is every bit as good as the description & in tip-top condition.

We chose the fully catered option. The food was exceptional & plentiful. Not only did we get great breakfasts & cordon-bleu dinners, we also enjoyed Tea in bed (delivered) & on our return in the afternoon tea & scrumptious homemade cake!

On the hosts night off we dined at The 3 Glaciers, a short walk from the chalet, recommended by Sam & Astrid & now highly recommended by us...... fabulous.

A bientôt

The Paul family
