The playroom is fab and kids love it as it has WII, Xbox, TV with DVDs, games and colouring. Even a fancy dress box ! The spacious lounge/diner is a hit with the families as are our home-made high teas for children so the adults can relax with great food and wine while the little ones recharge their batteries. There is a surround-sound cinema system in the lounge. It really is in an ideal ski in location in the winter as it is only 150m from the start of 425 kms of piste and 10 mins from the village. The new SPA is only 5 mins away and is a relaxing après-ski activity if the new lounge bar doesnt tempt you. We have a private car park and offer a minibus for any tired legs. This really is an ideal base for families or groups looking for a homely catered winter holiday. The chalet is fully serviced by an experienced team and all extras are organised for you from the minute you book. Massages and childcare available in house - Ski fitting in house - Superb Venue in the summer for road/mountain biking activity holidays - even a trip to Italy on skis or by car is achievable within an hour.

About the neighbourhood
Montchavin is a traditional farming village that is inhabitated all year round. It was linked into the La Plagne ski area in the 70s. Due to the growing popularity of the ski industry over the last 40 years, the Vanoise Express Telecabine was built which puts the charming village of Montchavin right at the heart of the Paradiski area, linking the 2 areas of Les Arcs and La Plagne.
