Situated on the edge of the piste and a gentle 40 metre ski to the nearest lift (Les Landelieres), this chalet is an ideal choice for skiing families and you to experience the most incredible views down the Tarentaise valley and across it to Les Arcs and Tignes.
It is immediately next door to our Ourson chalets and the Ferme d'Elisa where the Snow Club is based.
Children booked into Esprit children’s ski lessons will be collected by our Esprit Rangers from the chalet and meet the other children at the Ferme d'Elisa for the 150 metre walk to the ski school meeting place and the ski instructors. Children booked into Supervised Lunch (included with Snow Club, Xtra lessons and Mountain Academy) eat at a restaurant at the foot of the pistes or in the Snow Club.
Children return to the chalet late afternoon for High Tea.
There is Baby Listening / Child Patrol Service in the chalet on staff night off and additional evening Baby Sitting services can be booked locally if required.
Your catered chalet board includes breakfast, afternoon tea and evening meals complete with a selection of wines, cheese and coffee or tea. On staff day off, just a continental breakfast is provided.
The design Chalet Le Braconnier is extremely well appointed and comfortable offering family suites and rooms and its popularity can be gauged by the number of returning Esprit Ski guests. All bedrooms have a flat screen TV, safe and hair dryer.
There is also a sauna within the chalet and an outdoor hot tub. The owner has also build a wood-fired cosmic sauna so you can gaze at the stars whilst enjoying some therapeutic heat.
The owner and his family live on the upper floor and have a dog who resides with them at the property. The sauna and hot tub facilities are shared with the chalet owners' family who may use the facilities when they are not open to our guests (times to be advised locally).
This class is for 3 & 4 year-olds and is orientated towards fun and play, whilst introducing the youngsters to wearing ski boots and skis.

Our chalets are going greener, so our mountains don't.
This season (2022/23) our menu is changing for the better. In all of our chalets we're giving you more choice, both with meat-free and meat options on offer throughout your stay. This is driven as part of our commitment to reduce our carbon footprint.
Our chalets come in all shapes and sizes, from cosy one or two family chalets, through to larger chalets more ideal for extended family groups.
