Chalet Chamois Volant
- Sleeps 14 - 17
- Catered chalet
Chamois Volant started life as traditional farm dwelling, then to be
totally renovated with one of the most stylish and tasteful of
makeovers. The sumptuous fabrics adorning the bedrooms, the smart,
modern bathrooms and the inspired use of traditionally crafted
furnishings throughout have transformed this 19th century stone farm
building into a highly desirable chalet. The generous use of seasoned
timber, exposed stone work and original stone vaulted ceilings give the
chalet a delightfully charming and rustic feel. All the well appointed
bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and the open-plan living and dining
room has a TV and DVD player. To top it off, you can enjoy great views
of the mountains whilst soothing those tired limbs in the outdoor hot
tub on the balcony.
Rooms 1, 2, 3, 5 & 6 can be configured either with twin beds or a
king-sized double bed, so please advise preference when booking. The
extra beds in rooms 5, 6 & 7 are ideal for children, making this chalet a great choice for families.

Les Deux Alpes Resort Info
Les Deux Alpes skiing
Les Deux Alpes is a very popular resort with the Brits. It boasts the largest glacier in Europe (at 3568m)allowing for year round skiing. The biggest attraction for boarders and freestyle skiers, and those that like a bit of pro spotting, is the world class snowpark found at the Jandri mid-station during the winter, and up on the glacier during the summer. Beginners and intermediates are well catered for with some nice motorway pistes, although there is only one easy run back down to resort which is sometimes shut when snow is thin on the ground. Advanced skiers should head to the La Fee area for testing black runs and to nearby La Grave for some of the best off-piste around.
Les Deux Alpes ski resort
The resort itself is quite large and spread out, meaning it lacks that "village like" alpine charm. However, it does have a very good range of shops and restaurants, plus varied and lively nightlife. For non skiers, the hamlet of Venosc with its craft shops and cute eateries is walkable when there's not too much snow, or can be reached by cable car. Childcare is very good, so families are welcomed, but there is a lot of traffic in town, which may put some off.
Overall, a lively resort and very popular with the young freestyle crowd and their followers, with La Grave and the glacier particular pluses and Grenoble Airport only 90 minutes away.
