Chalet Jacaranda - Val D'Isere, France
Chalets Jacaranda, Jasmine (ID: 25955) and Juniper (ID: 25954) are spread across the top two floors of the delightfully retro three-star Résidence le Grizny. Jacaranda is on the first floor, next door to Jasmine. The building is unusually spacious and solid, having been built before Val d’Isère’s narrow valley started running out of space. And its position is really good: the village centre is a leisurely four minutes’ walk away, the ski buses stop nearby, and it is possible to ski home. Although the front door is conveniently close to the main road, Jacaranda is at the other end of the building, by the silent forests on the slopes of Solaise.
From the outside the building looks a bit like a municipal library, and inside the technicolour bathrooms have become a topic of conversation, but if you aren't particularly worried by a daffodil bath or bidet, Jacaranda's two bedrooms and sitting-dining room offer extraordinary value for money for four friends or a family in their own little chalet.

Meals - Chalet Jacaranda, 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.
