A home away from home…
Ideal For Families & Groups
Chalet de Valmorel was built in 1824 for a family producing cheese and farming cattle on the verdant slopes of the Morel valley. With the advent of tourism in the 1970s, the chalet was converted and extended into a small family-run hotel. It now operates as a classic ‘catered chalet’ but with the benefits of those hotel-style facilities.
The 8 en-suite bedrooms are arranged in clusters along the same corridor, so families and friends can stay together. The chalet can actually accommodate up to 22 people, with 2 extra beds in a small annexe room.. There are a variety of double, single and full-size bunk beds to suit all requirements. All the rooms are decorated in the ‘Savoyard’ style, with en-suite showers and WCs. The rooms are centrally-heated and there is plenty of hanging and cupboard space and great views toward the Vanoise Nature Park.
The lounge area has comfy sofas and armchairs, set around a roaring log-fire. There’s a large TV, music system, a small library, a collection of board games, and free wifi. Adjacent there is a kitchen area which guests can use for hot drinks,etc., a minibar and a games area, also with free wifi.
Outside there is a large sunny terrace, with stunning panoramic views across the valley and a eco-friendly wood-fired hot-tub.
The chalet is located in the picturesque hamlet of Le Pré, one of many old farming villages that have been integrated into the ski area. It is at the foot of the Valmorel ski area, with 2 green pistes terminating 50m from the chalet and 2 lifts linking to the heart of the ski area.
Valmorel village centre is easily accessed by free shuttle bus (takes 5 minutes), which run until after midnight. At Le Pré there is a bar, restaurant and ski shop, 100m from the chalet.
As Chalet de Valmorel was formerly a hotel, meals are served in the downstairs dining room. Food is prepared in the adjacent professional kitchen, and there is a full service bar which can be opened on request (only available to guests).
We believe in real chalet food, with expertly cooked and beautifully presented meals mixing the best of French and British cuisine. Expect all the chalet classics, from tartiflette to sticky-toffee-pudding, Sunday roast, hearty soups, home-made pizza for the children, options for vegetarians, vegans and all types of dietary requirements.
Every afternoon there’s a different cake to look forward to, and a well-stocked minibar with local beers, wines and soft-drinks at very reasonable prices. Tea, coffee and hot-chocolate is available at any time.
