Chalet Renard Bleu Reviews
No reviews yet
The beautifully designed chalet Renard Bleu was built specifically in 2013, right in the heart of Les 2 Alpes, and close to the popular Venosc Square with its many shops, bars and restaurants. Only the Renard Bleu and Chalet Loup Blanc can boast of such fantastic accommodation and facilities in such an enviable location.
Guests will appreciate the chalets’ close proximity to the skiing and easy access to the resort centre. Just 500m walk across the square to the new Diable 6 seater chairlift (which last year replaced the gondola, fondly known as the ‘Red Eggs’). This long but fast lift will whisk skiers up to the Les Crêtes area and beyond. Alternatively take the Super Venosc chairlift, across the square taking you to the Vallée Blanche ski area on the other side of the valley, which is now connected to the main ski area by the Côte blue run and the Petite Aiguille chairlift. The world’s fastest gondola, the Jandri Express, which delivers skiers to the glacier in only 7 minutes, is also an option for ski access each day.
The chalet Renard Bleu has been designed to a high specification in a classic alpine style, with attractive facades of exposed stone and warm woods, coupled with fresh open-plan interiors furnished with contemporary flair. The well appointed lounge and dining area of each chalet will include a feature fireplace and plenty of comfortable seating, but the real wow factor lies beyond, through the double French windows which lead to the decked terrace area and the outdoor covered plunge pool. You may be tempted to take a dip at any time, thanks to the pool being both heated and covered in an attractive glass canopy.
Each of the Renard Bleu’s bedrooms is a good size with wooden floors, panelled walls and some exposed beams as well as smart modern shower rooms. Many of them also benefit from a balcony.
A sauna on the ground floor of each chalet completes the sense of quality and style which our guests have come to expect from recent additions to our portfolio. Approximate transfer times to resort: Chambéry 2¼ hours, Geneva 3 hours.
Food is a feature of any ski holiday and we set very high standards for our cuisine.
Start the day with a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself.
A delicious homemade cake accompanied by hot drinks will be laid out for you every day except on the staff’s one day off per week.
Our three-course dinner menus start with an glass of Prosecco followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, accompanied by a choice of complimentary wines, with coffee or tea to follow.
Vegetarian options are available if advised in advance. Other special dietary requirements must also be advised to us at the time of booking in order for your chalet hosts to be fully prepared and incur a charge of £35 per person per week to cover the cost of additional ingredients. Failing to book special dietary requirements in advance can incur additional supplements in resort.
On your Host’s days off, they will leave a simpler continental breakfast out for you to help yourselves, there is no afternoon tea on these days, and you can dine out locally in the evening. Your Resort Representative will gladly help out with information and make a reservation for you if you wish.
Children's High Tea
We serve a separate High Tea at 5:30pm for children aged 11 years and under with an appropriate menu and pureed food is available for infants on request. Parents must accompany their children at high tea. Unless children are part of an ‘exclusive use’ whole-chalet booking in chalets, it is not possible for children aged 11 years and under to eat at the adult sitting. When part of a 'exclusive use' whole-chalet booking children may eat with the adults for a supplement of £39 per child if they have received child discounts.
