Chalet Charlotte (Val d'Isere)

Charlotte is one of our least expensive chalets, largely because it is rather unprepossessing from the outside. You can walk past, wondering where it has gone. Inside, though, it is warm, woody and welcoming, with a surprising amount of space. The sitting-dining room is high and light, with a granite fireplace, a balcony and an open-plan kitchen.

Chalet Charlotte is ideally situated, on the edge of the old village and the nursery slopes. The pistes are perhaps fifty yards away, the nearest lift and the church a couple of hundred yards.

Beside it are two neat twin bedrooms. One has french windows to a vast east-facing terrace. The other doesn't. There's a bathroom with both a bath and a shower, and a separate wc. Above are a fairly small twin bedroom and a very small double bedroom, tucked cosily under the roof. The staircase to these rooms is steeper than a black run, the perfect excuse not to invite onees mother-in-law or anyone with a baby or toddler!

As well as skylights, which aren't hugely effective under ten feet of snow, these two rooms have windows which open into the bright and airy living room below. One has all the light and ventilation one needs, and wakes to the sounds and smells not of some delivery van in the street below but of bacon frying and coffee brewing. The two top rooms have their own shower-room with loo.

Resort details

Val d'Isère

Val d'Isère is probably the resort that has access to the best all-round ski area in the world, the Espace Killy With just over 100 lifts compared to the 300 to be found in the Trois Vallées, the Espace Killy is obviously not the largest ski area in the world, but size isn’t everything and this region has as much skiing as one could ever need, not to mention the longest winter in the Alps. (The winter ski season here begins in late November and continues until early May and the early- and late-season conditions are seldom disappointing.

The main centre of Val d'Isere has been virtually rebuilt over the past 25 years and many of the buildings are imaginative contemporary interpretations of the traditional stone and wood Savoyard style.

Val d'Isere ski holidays were revolutionised with the introduction of apres-ski in the 80s when Dick Yates-Smith set up the seminal bar-nightclub, known as Dicks Tea-Bar.
