Overview

About the property

Ski Chalet close to ski lifts for both 3 Vallees & Paradiski Skiing (just 15-20 minutes drive away. Free Wi-Fi. Bed linen & Towels provided. Airport trfs available.

Chez Helene is a traditional wooden chalet located in a pretty Alpine village, on the sunny side of the Bozel valley, and is directly opposite the ski resort of La Tania (Courchevel). Facing due South the chalet is warm and cosy in winter & cool in summer. A fantastic Wood Pellet Burner provides a real flame fire and heater in the open plan lounge/dining and kitchen area, and also heats all the bedrooms above.

With 6 bedrooms & 8 double beds, the chalet offers guests the perfect base from which to enjoy their winter skiing & summer Alpine activity holidays. The Chalet will sleep 16, but we recommend a maximum group size of 12 for comfort.

Guests staying at 'Chez Helene Ski' have the opportunity to ski in the worlds largest and 3rd largest linked ski domains, with the ski lifts in Le Praz (for Courchevel/3 Vallees) & Brides les Bains (for Meribel) & Champagny-en-Vanoise (for La Plagne/Paradiski) just a short 15-20 mins drive from/to the chalet, and offering guests over 1,000km of pisted skiing all accessible just 15-20 minutes drive from the chalet.

The village has its own friendly bar & restaurant. Restaurants, bars, ski hire and ski gear, a pharmacy, banks, bakers, a butcher & food shops are also found just 6 mins drive away in Bozel.

A 40sqm decked patio provides the perfect area for BBQ’s, sunbathing & socialising. The chalet comes complete with Satellite TV/DVD, coffee machine, induction hob/electric oven/microwave, washing machine/tumble dryer & dishwasher making it a home from home, and one we know you will want to return to again and again.

We are very flexible (outside school holidays), and changeover days are not fixed. You are free to rent for any period of 7+ days, to suit you, and to enable you to book the cheapest flights.

Chalet rates are per person (based on a minimum of 8 -12 guests at Easter, Christmas, New Year and February Half Term).

Airport, train station & ski lift transfers are available. Discounts are available for larger groups (12+), and for young children. Smaller parties (of less than 8) out of peak seasons are welcome and particularly if you are a

returning guest.

Please note we do not inflate our rates over the school holiday weeks in the ski season!

Rental of the chalet costs the same per person at Christmas, Feb half term,

Easter etc, as it is for all other weeks in the year. We have 4 (now grown up)

children and know how expensive it is to take them away in school holidays and

so do not inflate our rates for those weeks, but do have a minimum guest

requirement of 8 to 12 in the school holidays. Smaller parties are welcome, but

rental price in the school holidays will be based on 8/12 guests in those

weeks.

We can provide airport transfers and transport for your party during your holiday for transfers to/from the local ski lifts/resorts, and your trips to the supermarkets & local shops, restaurants etc. Day Trips to Ski Val D'Isere/Tignes and other ski resorts can be arranged for a contribution to cover costs.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF CHALET

GROUND FLOOR - Entry into the chalet is via a manual push button coded door lock – meaning no keys are required for access and allow guests to arrive at any time of the day or night.

On entering the chalet walk in and along the corridor. On the left you have a ground floor studio with King sized bed, en-suite shower, wash basin & W.C. On the right enter the internal garage (not used for vehicles) where you find a newly installed shower room offering an amazing steam experience in the new 2-person Insignia steam shower with LED lights, Bluetooth music speakers, rainfall showerhead, body jets & 2 separate shower risers. The room also contains a WC and wash basin. The remaining garage area is currently used to store your ski equipment, and the chalets sledges, extra chairs, equipment etc. The plan for the near future is to fill the space with a 2.8+m2 Steam Sauna for 6-10 persons.

FIRST FLOOR - A door at the end of the entrance corridor leads to steps up to the open plan living/dining/kitchen area, with separate pantry/utility room and W.C. At the top of the stairs there is an area for coats, shoes and ski clothes, helmets etc, and a separate W.C. The lounge area with sofas and two Ikea chairs has seating for 9 guests. The extended glass dining table will seat 12 guests cosily (shoulder to shoulder), but I can provide an additional table extension and chairs to seat any extra guests.

The bedrooms on this floor have electric wall heaters, but which are rarely used as the pellet wood burner is so efficient at heating the upstairs bedrooms.

Bedroom 2 - double bed mattress up on a mezzanine floor (accessed via a secure stepped ladder) with door to the balcony (sleeps 2)

Bedroom 3 - has a double bed at floor level, and a double bed above (to one side) on a mezzanine floor, accessed by a secure stepped ladder (sleeps 4). Door to the balcony

The chalet comes complete with all bed linen and towels provided, plus bathroom essentials including shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bubble bath & hand wash, and also toilet paper, kitchen paper towels, cleaning sprays and materials.

In the lounge, there is a large 42" full HD TV with English Sky Freeview channels, and via a streaming stick Netflix, You Tube and catch up TV. There is also a DVD player & library of 120+ DVD films (mostly English language). Please feel free to bring your own streaming stick if you have Amazon Prime, or a subscription to Now TV. The cupboard below the TV/DVD contains games such as Cluedo, Scrabble, playing cards & UNO.

Free Wi-Fi and internet is provided and available throughout the chalet.

Sledges stored in the garage are available for guests to use.

The Chalet faces due South, with fantastic views across the valley to the Three Valleys, and the ski station of La Tania (Courchevel) and the start of the Meribel Valley.

On one side of the Chalet there is a 40m2 Sun Terrace, accessed along the balcony from the open plan Lounge area. The plan for the near future is to install a 7-person Hot Tub on the Terrace.

On the balcony, you will find 3 comfortable Ikea ‘Poang’ lounging chairs for you to enjoy the stunning Mountain views across the valley towards La Tania. During the daytime, you can watch the skiers and snow boarders (who look like ants) skiing down the ski pistes to La Tania (Courchevel).

Binoculars are available in the Chalet to get a closer view of the amazing mountains and skiers on the runs, and later in the season watch the paragliders thermalling high above the mountains.

About David Windell

I live to make every day an adventure. Living in the Alps fulfills that desire!

I love to ski and paraglide, & my heart is here, exploring, skiing in & paragliding above these beautiful mountains.

I have 4 adult children & 2 young granddaughters. My children all love skiing/snowboarding, but strangely I have been unable to persuade them to take up paragliding...YET!

In my other life I am a chartered accountant, & love my work. I run my own practice & with the internet am able to work anywhere in the world.

David Windell purchased this chalet in 2011

Why David Windell chose Montagny

Many years ago I discovered the joys and thrills of skiing in Canada & paragliding in Slovenia. & developed an ever increasing desire to live in the Alps. I spent two summers exploring from Chamonix to Annecy & Les Arcs to Courchevel, paragliding as I went, and through local estate agents viewed over 175 properties, barns, chalets and plots of building land until I eventually found this, my dream chalet. 'Chez Helene Ski' has a really warm homely and inviting feel and I instantly realised the potential for sharing it, and my love of the mountains, with family/friends and guests. It is the ideal base for a holiday throughout the year. With both the 3 Vallees and Paradiski mountain domains on my doorstep, I know I really have found a little piece of heaven here on Earth.

What makes this chalet unique

Chez Helene is located in a small & friendly traditional mountain village, on the sunny side of the Bozel valley, and provides the perfect base to explore and enjoy the amazing and stunning mountains and valleys of the French Alps. Being just a stones throw away from arguably the very best ski resorts in the world, with over 1000km of groomed pistes here on my doorstep, and with numerous world class paragliding launch sites just a short drive away, I really do love my new home here in France.

With 6 bedrooms, 8 double beds & transport for up to 8 guests (or 12 with a hire car), the chalet comfortably caters for large groups of 8-12. Guests return year after year, so I know Chez Helene is the best place to stay for your winter skiing and Spring/Summer cycling holidays.

Guests staying at 'Chez Helene Ski' can ski in all of the following order of proximity..

La Plagne (15 mins)

Courchevel (20mins)

Meribel (30 mins)

St. Martin de Belleville (40 mins)

Les Menuiries.(50 mins)

Val Thorens, (1 Hour)

La Rosiere (1 hour)

Tignes (1 hr 20 mins)

Val D'Isere (1 hr 20 mins)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Natalie-Mar 14-I stayed in Chez Helene with family on a skiing holiday & cannot recommend it highly enough! The chalet is warm and inviting & was well equipped with everything that we needed. Our host David was so accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. The area is beautiful with some breath taking scenery. An added bonus is that the location is away from the noise of the main ski resorts but it's just a short drive to get there. There is so much to do in the area & David is a fantastic guide who can recommend something to suit everyone. We went for skiing & were not disappointed by the selection of nearby ski resorts. I will definitely be booking again. A gem in the Alps not to be missed.



Helen (Jan 14) -"Thank you so much for a most wonderful and unforgettable week. I really enjoyed the skiing and assure you I will be back again next year."



Martin G (NY13/14) Our third stay in the chalet, which just keeps on improving year on year. We wouldn't go anywhere else.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The chalet was built in 2004, and was newly re furbished for the 2011/12 ski season. Facing due South the chalet benefits from natural light and heat from the low winter sun throughout the ski season and is very airy, light, warm and cosy when the sun is shining. A very eco efficient wood pellet burner (programmable/timer) heats the living/dining/kitchen areas and also the bedrooms & mezzanines above, on the top floor. The 7 top floor double beds are found at floor level (x 3) and on raised mezzanine floors (x 4). Bedroom 1 is a standard double. Bedrooms 2 & 5 contain a double bed on raised mezzanine floors. Bedrooms 3 & 4 each have a double bed on the ground floor, with access via a wooden ladder at the foot of each bed to a double bed on each mezzanine floor. The ground floor studio has a king sized bed and en-suite shower and is totally self contained. When staying in the chalet, we occupy the studio, leaving you with exclusive use of the floors above. Smoking is prohibited in the chalet. Outside: The chalet has two South facing balconies, & a 40 sqm sun terrace/patio, all with magnificent views of the 3 Vallees mountains & the ski resort of La Tania (opposite). In the Spring and Summer you can watch the paragliders flying above the Col de la Loze, & Buzzards, Eagles and other birds of Prey, thermalling above you. The chalet has plentiful parking. A short walk from the chalet brings you to magnificent views of the Grand Bec mountain beyond Bozel, and to stunning views of the valley floor to the bright lights of Bride les Bains in the evenings. The village of Montagny is wonderful to walk around, the local people so friendly and welcoming, and the houses in the old quarter are simply fascinating. There are many local walks available from the chalet. The road up from the village (accessible late Spring) takes you high up the mountain of Mont Jovet, and towards the top of La Plagne. The village has a bar, which also serves pizza where you can meet the friendly locals. Utility Room: Washing machine and tumble dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All cleaning/laundry charges are included in the rates. Egyptian cotton towels & bed linen is provided weekly. 45% goose down feather or microfibre duvets are available. All beds have Hypnia memory foam mattresses, with mattress & pillow protectors.

Great quiet location with spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet has everything you need and with several bedrooms can accommodate many guests. The view from the balcony is stunning and there is a side decking area which catches the sun for times when you want to relax. Although this is mainly a skiing location we would highly recommend it for a summer holiday aswell.

Montagny is a quiet village halfway up a mountain at approx 1000m along a twisty road, there are a lot of new buildings and refurbishment of existing properties is evident indicating that this is an up and coming location. In the summer there is only one bar in the village but they provide very good meals.

Perfect for all our needs

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is perfect for meeting all our expectations. We arrived for a cycling holiday and the chalet is like home form home. With a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms teamed with the living areas, there was plenty of room for all our party.

Located in the mountains close to Cour Cheval, we could ride form the chalet. Down into Moutiers or Bride les Bains, both lovely villages, were just a short ride down either side of the mountain.

Looking forward to another return visit in 2016.

Thanks David!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jon, and true to your word you have already booked to come back next July (2016), for a longer stay and with an even larger group of your cycling friends. I truly believe the chalet provides the perfect accommodation for all activity based holidays, including skiing, paragliding, cycling, mountain biking, walking, swimming, climbing (via ferata), Zip wire tree coursing, and white water rafting/kayaking,etc, to name but a few. It is also the perfect base for family exploring holidays, suits all ages, and is a true home from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Karen. For Spring/Summer walkers the chalet is perfectly situated for access to the lifts in both the Three Vallees and Paradiski mountain domains, and has direct access from its small mountain village location to the top of Mont Jovet. The stunning Vanois National Park is just a short 20 minute drive away in Champagny Le Haut (20 mins drive) and Pralognan en Vanois (30 mins drive), and the beautiful lake at Annecy is just 90 mins away. I look forward to welcoming you here again.

Review of Chez Helene

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant place to stay. Host is very welcoming and he will do anything for you! Incredibly accommodating. Skiing is first class in both resorts - three valleys or les arcs. Love the fact that you can choose either resort or mix and match.

House is very comfortable, good beds, and good facilities. Very clean. Great place to stay, we will be going back, thanks David.

Owner's Response: Thank you Fran for your lovely comments, and I am really looking forward to seeing you again next year, for your fourth return visit ! As for skiing in all the local resorts, I truly believe it is one of the major benefits of staying at Chez Helene, being just 13 minutes drive from Champagny, for skiing in La Plagne and Les Arcs (Paradiski) and just 20 minutes to the Le Praz, Courchevel lift, for skiing in Courchevel and the Three Valleys (Courchevel, Meribel and Val Thorens). Next time you visit I'll be more than happy to drive you over to Tignes and Val D'Isere to experience the ski slopes there :-).
