Located in the huge Portes de Soleil ski area of Les Gets, this luxury child friendly chalet is conveniently close to the slopes. It has superb panoramic views of the surrounding valleys. Six en-suite bedrooms sleep up to twelve guests, and the chalet’s sister property, the Petite Corniche, can accommodate an additional four guests or a private nanny. Adults will appreciate the glass sauna, outdoor hot tub, wine cellar and bar. Children can enjoy the plasma TVs and spacious living room area. The ski resort itself is extremely child-friendly and in keeping with the Wild West theme. With a children’s sledging area, a skiing Milka cow who hands out chocolate, and a child-only section of the mountain adorned with totem poles and giant snake eggs, rest assured there is plenty for the kids to do!
This luxury ski lodge is located right on the slopes and has ski-in, ski-out access to the Three Valleys ski area. The luxurious furnishings inside were designed by a top London interior designer.
