"The Champs Avalins is our most popular property in the Alps. Why? Because it offers great value catered accommodation in a top resort and the location is perfect for skiing the formidable Espace Killy area. The access to the slopes from the Champs Avalins is ideal, with the Funival monorail and La Daille gondola practically on the doorstep. From the Champs Avalins, you are two lifts away from Tignes. The runs home are better for a range of abilities than properties in the centre of Val D’Isere. Beginners can take the aptly named ‘Verte’ green run through the trees down to La Daille, intermediates can take blues and reds, including a World Cup run, and experts can enjoy a challenging mogul filled black. The Val d’Isere village centre in is a five minute bus ride away. And best of all, the infamously good Folie Douce mountain restaurant and club is on the mountain, a 2400m gondola ride above La Daille, "
Chalet Champs Avalins - Val D'Isere, France
Welcome to Chalet Hotel Champs Avalins! Apart from the advantages of the excellent location at the foot of Val d’Isère’s La Daille slopes, you are assured a genuinely warm welcome from our team of professional, friendly staff, led by an experienced Manager.
In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the hotel might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps, but as with all properties, it is the location that really counts! And that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the hotel, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain.
Inside, the Champs Avalins offers a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The attractive restaurant on the first floor have views to the piste, and forms the centrepiece of our hotel.
Our residents’ bar is ideal for afternoon, or pre-or post-dinner drinks and is a lively venue for swapping the day’s ski highlights.
In contrast to other properties, we have two dinner sittings in our dining room, one from 6.30pm for aperitifs, and the other from 8pm, creating a cosier dinner ambience, and giving you the possibility of enjoying more après-ski, either in the early evening on some nights or after dinner on other nights. We will do our best to accommodate your individual preferences and you can state which sitting you prefer (if any) when booking.
The bedrooms are generally a good size and attractively furnished, and all of them have well appointed shower or bathrooms, most with smart new tiling from floor to ceiling. Most rooms have balconies, many of which are south-facing and overlook the piste where the World Cup Downhill run finishes, and there are some pairs of rooms with an inter-connecting door available on request.
