Chalet La Croix - Val D'Isere, France
This sweet chalet nestles within the sturdy stone walls of one of Val d’Isère’s oldest buildings, a 1620s farmhouse. La Croix is on the ground floor. Next door are our chalets Le Vieux Crét and La Maison du Rocher. It is situated in that little enclave of stone chalets on the left as you reach Val d'Isère proper from La Daille. Sitting above the main road, La Croix is totally insulated from the sound of passing traffic or people, yet it's close to the bus and just one stop from the funicular or three from the village centre. Walking into 'town' would take about 10 minutes.
However, walking and bus journeys need not concern you because not only does La Croix share its driveway, front garden and some very thick stone walls with its neighbours, it also shares our super-convenient Land Rover service, where one of the famous yellow fleet will take you to and from any point you choose in Val d'Isère from 8.30 to 10am, and 3.30 to 8pm. La Croix is ideal for two couples or a family of four or five.
Please note: Charter flights from Gatwick to Grenoble includes ski carriage (except 8 December 2013 and 27 April 2014.

Meals - Chalet La Croix, 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.
