The main entrance is a small SAS/ski room with automatic lights, a bench-seat, boot heater for 12 sets of ski boots & hooks for helmets. From the sas, the entrance area is open & spacious with a warm welcoming feeling as soon as you step in. The floors throughout the chalet are a beautiful gray wood floating parquet with electric underfloor heating throughout. There are 4 double bedrooms on this level all equipped with wardrobes & en suite bathrooms all of which have automatic lights, spacious Italian showers, suspended WCs, single washbasins & heated towel rails.
The large central staircase to the main living area is an open wood & steel spiral staircase with ambient step lights. The large living room has a ½ cathedral ceiling & a wonderful freestanding wrought iron & glass Scandinavian wood burner. The two large separate double glass sliding doors open onto a full south facing balcony that runs the length of the chalet with views of the mountains. The chalet boasts a beautiful open modern kitchen, fully equipped, set at the end of the dining area both with views overlooking the valley and mountains.
The staircase to the upstairs bedrooms is an open wooden staircase, exactly like the one below, with automatic ambient step lights. There are two double/twin bedrooms with A frame windows, skylight, wardrobes and en suite bathrooms equipped with automatic lights, spacious Italian showers, suspended WCs, single washbasins & heated towel rails. One of these bedrooms acts as a family room as there is an additional small single bedroom (‘coin de mountain’) with a skylight. The garage annex has automatic lighting in the hall and stairs.
On the ground is level there is a small bedroom/apartment used for staff accommodation with space for a single bed and an ensuite bathroom with the shower, sink and WC. You could eventually add a tiny kitchenette if needed or turn this into an additional ski room which would be more spacious and you could then use the SAS/Ski room in the chalet as a coat and boot room instead.
The stairs down to the underground basement area are concrete & eqipped with automatic lighting. The basement is open and huge with concrete floors & automatic lights. Along the south side of the wall there are two narrow “outside” underground storage areas with sliding glass doors which allow natural lighting. There is a separate office area with a window that also has natural light but no view plus a separate WC with a washbasin. There is another staff accommodation room with an ensuite bathroom with shower, sink & WC. This whole underground basement area could be converted into a home spa with swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, massage room plus changing room with shower, sink and WC… or maybe you would prefer a cinema & games room?
Outside: Relax & sooth those aching muscles in the outdoor Jacuzzi after a long day skiing or cycling. The spa is tucked away disceetly in the small south facing garden with nice mountain views. There is a very small garden shed for storing shovels, pics and salt, etc. There is private exterrior parking for two cars parked 1 behind the other in the driveway plus extra street parking directly in front of the chalet.
Three Valleys Ski Area
A beautiful place all year with highly defined seasons and quiet and tranquil out of the ski season when the crowds have gone home, and then suddenly once again each winter the mountains of the Three Valleys come alive with people enjoying this vast ski area..... the largest linked skiing in the world.
The Three Valleys ski domain provides more than 600km of runs and probably the same again off-piste. In fact it should now be called the Four Valleys with the link into Orelle (Maurienne Valley) which can be accessed by ski from Val Thorens. This has also opened up some extraordinary off-piste runs. The Three Valleys provides direct links between the ski resorts of St Martin de Belleville, Les Menuires, Val Thorens, Méribel, Mottaret, La Tania, Brides les Bains and the four Courchevel resorts, la Praz, 1550, 1650 and the world famous 1850 – and now Orelle, in the fourth valley - all under one ski pass offering on-piste skiing from 1300m all the way up to 3200m. As these figures show the Three Valleys ski area offers huge altitude differences favouring long run skiing.
It has an ultra efficient, state of the art ski lift system, quality piste preparation and a dense artificial snow making system (1920 snow cannons) complementing the excellent natural snow cover. However, if you are not a fan of downhill skiing or like some variety during your stay then you can also roam the domain at your leisure on foot, hiking along the marked trails, or using the pedestrian ski lift passes. Many trails have been created especially to enjoy the increasingly popular snowshoeing sport and to discover the valleys from a new perspective: flora, wildlife, monuments, and spectacular scenery.There are also many cross-country skiing tracks that are prepared and maintained each day. These allow you to take in the breathtaking scenery and provide the opportunity to appreciate the beauty of the mountains away from the pistes.
An interesting and wonderful area all year round, there is much more here than the snow sports.
Courchevel Le Praz Ski Resort
Le Praz is a charming ski resort based around a pretty, traditional mountain village. Even as the resort grows the centre remains full of character with narrow streets and attractive old buildings and in the main the new developments have been done with taste in the traditional materials of wood and stone. It has a small lake as its focus next to which the two ski lifts are situated.
It is a very popular resort due to its authentic, welcoming feel with the small centre providing a daily meeting point for regulars so new arrivals can quickly settle in and get to know who’s who and what’s where. Its prices compare very favourably to the more expensive resorts higher up the valley, and it offers enough to keep most members of a group happy. It welcomes a wide range of visitors; families, those with a basic budget, and a wealthier clientele who don’t subscribe to the glitz of 1850.
It has a life of its own throughout the year although it is very quiet out of season with just a shop, bar and restaurant remaining open. In the main summer season, July and August, it is also fully open and the winter season usually runs from mid December to the end of April.
The lake, frozen in winter, makes a stunning backdrop for the huge fireworks competition held here each year along with many music festivals both summer and winter. At the back of the lake is a huge ski jump which is used on the national and international competition circuit which along with walking, horse riding, parapointing, painting, golf, flying, climbing and many other superb mountain activities brings life beyond skiing to this village.
Le Praz boasts a good selection of lively bars, mouth-watering creperies and fine restaurants including "La Table de Mon Grand-Père" in Hotel Les Peupliers - a favourite treat of mine. It has a good standard of accommodation with a mix of hotels, apartments and chalets.
It is situated at the foot of the Courchevel ski area and is also known as the ski resort of Courchevel 1300. The Courchevel ski area links in to the massive 3 Valleys ski area. From the foot of the Gondola lift you are 2 lifts away from either Méribel or Courchevel 1850. So for skiing Le Praz is excellently situated with the two télécabine lifts, the Praz and Foret running from the centre. These can become hectic at peak weeks but locals and seasonnaires (winter workers) know it’s just a matter of timing your departure.
The Praz télécabine lift takes you directly into the centre of Courchevel 1850. The Foret télécabine lift takes you up towards the summit of "La Loze" at 2196m, giving easy access to the wonderful skiing of Courchevel and La Tania or the Meribel valley. Skiing back to Le Praz is a breathtaking experience in itself; tree lined pistes, some of the prettiest in the three valleys, lead you to the village. The jockey’s black run into Le Praz is quite something and a superb challenge to those who like to ski a bit closer to the edge. But don’t worry there are red runs too or the option to come down in the lift or free ski buses which run non-stop throughout the day.
The traditionally good snow, north facing slopes and extensive network of snow cannons enable you to ski back to the village throughout the season, but regardless just in case the pistes get a little scratchy you can always catch the bubble down.
