Chalet Le Vieux Cret - Val D'Isere, France

Le Vieux Crêt has probably become Val d'Isère's most des res chalet for eight to ten guests. The chalet hasn't changed. It is still one of Val d'Isère's only genuinely old buildings, being part of the 1620s farmhouse which also contains our Maison du Rocher. Its walls are as thick as ever, its granite roof as heavy, though you probably won't see that under a metre or so of snow. The huge, high-ceilinged sitting room is still wonderfully comfortable, with its log fire, multi-channel surround-sound satellite TV, DVDs, Wifi etc. There is a separate dining room, and a mezzanine where ninth and tenth guests can stay half-price.

Le Vieux Crêt is in a brilliant position, in that collection of lovely wood-and-stone chalets just on the left as one reaches Val d'Isère proper from La Daille. The hamlet is called le Crêt - the Ridge - and is considered the Boltons of Val d'Isère (not to be confused with the Bolton). Le Vieux Crêt is at the sunny front, and although its garden wall overhangs the road 50m away and 10m below, there is seldom a sound. There is a steepish little path to the road, with bus stops to the Funival and village centre a further 100m or so. If you chose to walk, either would take ten minutes.

But it seems that to twenty-first century Vieux Crêt guests public transport is unpalatable, walking unthinkable and a snowy path non-negotiable! So we have a private Land Rover to ferry guests from this chalet and La Maison du Rocher and La Croix next door to and from any point they choose in Val d'Isère from 8.30 to 10am, and 3.30 to 8pm. The loveliest old chalet in Val d'Isère is just a few paces from all of its lifts...

Please note that the use of the sauna in Le Vieux Crêt is at your own risk (and that of your party members). We cannot accept responsibility for any accidents/injuries which occur during the use of the sauna. Children must be supervised when using the sauna.

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

Meals - Chalet Le Vieux Cret, 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.
