Chalet Charlotte - Val D'Isere, France

There are five reasons for booking Chalet Charlotte.

First, its position. It is on the edge of the old village, a short walk from the church, 50m from the nursery slopes. You can almost ski to the door.

Secondly, the interior: like Jonah’s whale, it is a great deal roomier and more comfortable than one would imagine from the exterior. It has a very pleasant sitting-dining room with a high ceiling, open-plan kitchen, a balcony with a good view up Bellevarde, and a big, solid fireplace built of stones collected by the owner for the matching colours of their lichen.

On the same floor as the living room are two twin bedrooms. Room 1 has a high ceiling and a french window to a wide sunny terrace. There is a bathroom with both a bath and a shower – very convenient for people inured to seeing each other starkers – and a separate wc.

Upstairs, via a staircase too steep for anyone’s Granny or toddler (its third USP), are a comfy twin bedroom and a very cosy double. They share a shower-room with wc. These two rooms are tucked under the eaves, and their windows are a stroke of genius: not just the normal skylights, which don’t do a lot under ten feet of snow, but also proper windows opening onto the living room below. These give all the fresh air you want, yet you go to sleep to the scent of the log fire and wake up to the smell of fresh coffee.

The fourth reason is what the chalet does not have: en-suite bathrooms, because as a result it also doesn’t attract the sort of guest who spends his holiday worrying that someone else might have borrowed his toothpaste.

The fifth and perhaps the greatest reason for staying in Chalet Charlotte is that it offers ruinously good value – ruinous to us, not you – and in these days when the pound in your pocket just slipped through a hole in the lining, eating  food 50m from the slopes without having to remortgage the castle sounds like a good investment!

Please note: Charter flights from Gatwick to Grenoble includes ski carriage (except 8 December 2013 and 27 April 2014.

Meals - Chalet Charlotte, Val D'Isere

We start with a proper breakfast: fruit juice, porridge, cereals, bacon, eggs, baguettes straight from the famous local bakery, a croissant or pain au chocolat if you like, yogurt, Twinings tea and fresh coffee from Italian espresso pots (with Nescafé and bizarre infusions for those who prefer them).

Afternoon tea & cake: on your return from the slopes to find bread and jam, a freshly-baked cake, hot chocolate etc. left out for you.

Most people are very happy with our normal formula of canapés followed by dinner with  a three-course, fixed-menu, dinner-party-style meal. The cuisine is largely French, though with a fusion of other influences – what Londoners call Modern British. With dinner, we serve free unlimited quantities of a selection of very drinkable French AOC wines and vins de pays. This is, unfortunately, only with dinner, not breakfast, and we stop serving the wine when the coffee appears.

Please note: The chalet host will have a day off during the course of the week, during which you will be required to eat out.
