Chamois Lodge, St Martin de Belleville
This lush lodge is found in the tranquil hamlet of Villarabout. Just a stone’s throw away from St Martin de Belleville centre and the main lift area, the location of Chamois Lodge is just perfect. From stunning mountain views and vistas of the traditional village, this is a place where you can’t help but pause to take in the surrounding beauty. Oozing an elegant style, the lodge is adorned with oh-so luxurious fur throws, cowhide walls and little alpine touches here and there. Run similar to that of a boutique hotel, the service here is something else. Blessed with a professional chef, host, chauffeur and chalet manager, your every need will be met. Chamois Lodge sleeps 6 to 9 guests.
Bellevarde, Les Menuires
Situated right in the midst of natural beauty, Bellevarde looks like it’s been plucked from the prettiest postcard. Sitting right on the slopes, you can ski directly to and from your doorstop too. How cool is that? Just imagine, popping your skis on in the morning, opening the door and away you go. Awesome! Located at 1800m on the piste in the village Le Hameau des Marmottes, Bellevarde has been beautifully built using wood and natural stone. Inside, the chalet features modern bedrooms, an open-plan living and dining area and a roaring log-fire. Bellevarde sleeps 14 guests.
Carlina, Reberty 2000
With it’s very own indoor spa facilities, en-suite bedrooms, the cosiest sofas and a fireplace right in the centre of the lounge, Carlina is one chic chalet. Like Bellevarde, this is also a chalet you can ski directly to and from. And, there’s no need to worry about cold feet either, the chalet has its very own heated boot rack! When it comes to both location and luxury, this little gem wins hands down. The spa facilities are a godsend, of course. Nothing beats hitting the sauna or bubbling hot tub after a hard day of skiing. It’ll put a stop to those tired, achy muscles that’s for sure. Carlina sleeps 16-20 guests.
