This traditionally styled Savoyarde Chalet is quite a landmark situated at the foot of the infamous Face run on Bellevarde (home of the 2009 World Cup Men's downhill), you can ski from the door to the main lifts, nursery slopes and ski school meeting points so absolutely ideal for families as well as keen skiers. The brave (& foolhardy!), can "face the Face" to ski back whilst the rest of us mere mortals would probably find an alternative route!. The amenities and facilities of the resort centre are just a five minute stroll away. The brand new purpose built Sport & Aquatic Centre is virtually a neighbour, offering pools, leisure and spa facilities so don't forget to pack the swimwear and take advantage of a free session (with an Espace Killy lift pass).
The Chamois D'Or is getting on in years and unfortunately the owner still won't commit to refurbishment or redevelopment, never the less it has proved incredibly popular over the last few seasons. Its many regular guests have added to its repuation for great value holidays with a friendly atmosphere, fantastic team of happy and hard working staff and not forgetting an enviable reputation of good food courtesy of head chef Kieron.
Despite being home to around 50 guests each week, the Chamois still offers that typical friendly and informal chalet style holiday. Think Savoyarde charm not the Savoy! definitely not smart or luxurious but there is an abundunce of character and a superb atmosphere. The airy dining room has a wall of picture windows offering superb views towards Solaise and the Manchet Valley, dining tables are mixed according to group sizes and you will soon get to meet your fellow guests and swap ski tales with them. There is a small in house bar next to a huge open fireplace (for character only unfortunately since the local Pompiers don't like us using this!) and comfortable settees perfect for a pre dinner aperitif or nightcap or two!! Next door to the bar is a smaller lounge, ideal for children and adults alike to play cards or board games or watch their dvd's on the large tv. The bedrooms, though dated, are all individual in character and some of the nicest rooms are those with the most quirky features. All are ensuite, mostly twins but with the advantage of family suites and triple rooms providing a range of bedrooms to suit all needs.
