Chalet Casa Rivas, Val D'Isere
This attractive chalet was lovingly hand built by it's owner Luis Rivas and he is justly very proud of his beautiful home, besides it helps fund his enviable life split between the slopes of Val and the waves of Bali!. Built of local Savoyarde stone and wood which creates a warm and inviting ambience, the chalet has proved very popular and is certainly one of our favourites. It is conveniently located in a quiet location just 200m from the Bellevarde lifts and nursery slopes and approximately 5 minutes walk from the resort centre.
Guests love this charming chalet, the living room has a great warm and welcoming feel with plenty of natural light and the huge comfy sofas just invite you to relax by the open fireplace. French doors open on to the terrace which provides a natural sun trap. The one double and three twin bedrooms are all ensuite and benefit from spa baths, great for your end of day aches and pains.

Meals - Chalet Casa Rivas, Val D'Isere
Our Chalet staff have a well earned day off during your stay. On this day, breakfast and afternoon tea will be laid out for you to help yourself and you are free to sample one of the local restaurants in the evening - our staff will be pleased to help with recommendations and bookings.
Breakfast : Start your day with a hearty breakfast to fuel your day on the slopes, choose from a selection of cereals (not forgetting a bowl of porridge!), fresh fruit and yoghurts, freshly baked local bread and choice of preserves accompanied by fruit juices, tea and coffee. In addition, apart from chalet staff day off and change over day, enjoy a cooked "dish of the day" such as eggs and bacon (not a full English!).
Afternoon tea : On your return from the slopes, pop the kettle on and help yourself to a teatime treat with a slice (or two!) of delicious home-made cake or biscuits.
Dinner: Just imagine a casual dinner party with friends, now imagine that minus the stress of shopping, cooking, clearing up, ordering taxis, organising babysitters...... well now you can! Relax, your evening starts around 7.30pm swapping some ski tales and banter over canapes and aperitif followed by a delicious freshly cooked dinner with unlimited house wine until coffee to finish.
Our Chalet staff always aim to please and if given notice will as much as possible adapt their menus to your specific tastes and dietary requests however we cannot provide vegan, kosher, gluten and dairy free meals and cannot guarantee a nut free environment. We provide a vegetarian alternative for guests that don't eat meat or that evening choice of meat or fish. Please ensure that we know about any dietary requests well in advance of your holiday and that you are happy to compromise with our chalet menu and accept that we cannot offer a completely alternative menu for you.
Children's Supper : We provide a child friendly supper at around 6pm for all children under 12years, if you have sole use of a chalet and you would prefer your children to eat a normal dinner with you at 8pm there is a upgrade ( at a supplement). For those in a shared chalet it is generally expected that under 12s would have the early supper.
One night during the week will be a 'Simple Supper night' and serve a tasty two course meal of traditional favourites such as a chicken curry or maybe either a tasty lasagne or hearty shepherds pie or perhaps a fish pie.
