Chalet Les Gnellets - Val D'Isere, France

Les Gnellets was built a couple of decades ago in the time-honoured local way, all wood and stone, with some of the rooms tucked in under the massive roof timbers. It is a pretty, comfortable and welcoming chalet.The room the time-honoured locals obviously planned to spend most of their time in is the spacious, high-ceilinged, open-plan dining-sitting-room-kitchen, with its log fire surrounded by sofas, terrace, mezzanine etc.

For some reason, Les Gnellets has always generated a particularly laid-back and contented atmosphere, possibly because it feels good, with all the larch and granite, perhaps because it is so convenient for skiing, with the cable car station and pistes not three minutes away. At night the loudest sound from without is the babble of the stream or the occasional lowing of Val d’Isère’s milk supply in the nearby farm.

From within, there is occasionally a lot more noise, but Les Gnellets is one of our few chalets with no near neighours to worry about. The chalet is in the lovely hamlet of Le Joseray, six minutes’ walk from the village centre, though there are shops, bars and restaurants closer by, just two or three minutes away.

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

Accommodation - Chalet Les Gnellets, Val D'Isere

5 bedrooms for 10-12 guests: 3 bath(s), 2 shower(s)
Not to say that the bedrooms aren’t comfortable. There’s a super master bedroom with a balcony overlooking the Calabourdane stream, and both a bath and a very indulgent rain-head shower. Two other bedrooms have en-suite facilities, while the last two share a bathroom and separate loo. These two rooms are tucked under the rafters, up a staircase with not one but two low beams to test sobriety.There are two more beds on the big mezzanine above the living room, which children or friends can take at half price, although we cannot guarantee flight seats for these two extra beds.

Bedroom 1:
Double (12'6" x 11') on ground floor with en-suite bathroom with bath and rainhead shower plus separate en-suite wc, and a private balcony.

Bedroom 2:
Twin (12' x 10') on the ground floor, en-suite bathroom with wc.

Bedroom 3:
Double (10' x 9'6") on ground floor, with en-suite shower and basin.

Bedroom 4:
Twin (10' x 9'6") on the first floor. Sweet room tucked under the eaves.

Bedroom 5:
Twin (9' x 9'6") next door to and rather like Bedroom 4. It is larger than the measurements given, but part is not very accessible owing to the low beams.

Bathrooms:
As well as the en-suite facilities there is a wc on the ground floor. On the first floor there is a bathroom with bath and basin and a small separate wc for rooms 4 and 5.

Sitting-Dining Room:
(22'6" x 13'6") Long and high, with sofas around the fireplace. The kitchen (not included in measurements) is off the dining area. Mezzanine (13' x 13'). WiFi.

Extra Beds:
Two single beds on the mezzanine are available if one party books the whole chalet (extra charge).

Meals - Chalet Les Gnellets, 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.
