Chalet Christian is on the second floor of the former Hotel Etendard where we run 2 delightful chalets.

It is well located close to the centre of the resort and only a five minute walk at most from the Esprit childcare base, within the Chalet Hotel Mariandre. Ski access is also straightforward with the nearest lift only 200m walk away, and in the right conditions you can ski back to within 150m of the chalet. Families will also appreciate the proximity to the resort's ice rink and indoor swimming pools (one free entrance to each is included with the lift pass)

The interior style of the chalet is traditional yet with modern features such as slate contemporary flooring and well-planned en suite shower rooms, added when the former hotel was converted into the chalets.The four twin rooms are warm and inviting with wood panelling and pine bedsteads, plus two can sleep up to four as they have bunk beds suitable for under 12's and two also have a balcony.
The attractive lounge and dining area is open plan with classic Alpine furnishings as well as a TV and DVD player.

To add to its all-round appeal, the chalet has its own sauna and a ski room with heated boot warmers close to the chalet entrance at the rear of the building.

An internal staircase connecting the Christian to the larger Philippe chalet on the two floors below can be opened up specifically for larger groups (22-32) when booking both chalets and arrangements can be made to eat together in Philippe's spacious dining room. All adult guests will then have the added bonus of the use of the hot tub in the Philippe!
