This traditionally styled Savoyarde Chalet is quite a landmark situated at the foot of the infamous Face run on  Bellevarde (home of the  2009  World Cup Men's downhill), you can ski from the door to  the main lifts, nursery slopes and ski school meeting points so absolutely ideal for families as well as keen skiers. The brave (& foolhardy!), can  "face the Face"  to ski back whilst the rest of us mere mortals would probably find an alternative route!.   The amenities and facilities of the resort centre are just a   five minute stroll away. The brand new purpose built Sport & Aquatic Centre is virtually a neighbour, offering pools, leisure and spa facilities so don't forget to pack the swimwear and take advantage of a free session (with an Espace Killy lift pass).

The Chamois D'Or is getting on in years and unfortunately  the owner still won't commit to refurbishment or redevelopment, never the less it has proved incredibly popular over the last few seasons. Its many regular guests have added to its  repuation for great value holidays with a friendly atmosphere, good food and  fantastic team of happy and hard working staff. 

Despite being home to around 50 guests each week, the Chamois still offers that typical friendly and informal chalet style holiday. Think Savoyarde charm not the Savoy!  definitely not smart or luxurious but there is an abundunce of character and a  superb atmosphere.  The airy dining room has a wall of picture windows offering superb views towards Solaise and the Manchet Valley, dining tables are mixed according to group sizes and you will soon get to meet your fellow guests and swap ski tales with them. There is a small in house bar next to a huge open fireplace (for character only unfortunately since the local Pompiers don't like us using this!) and  comfortable settees perfect for a pre dinner aperitif or  nightcap or two!! Next door to the bar is a smaller lounge, an ideal spot  for children and adults alike to play cards or board games or watch their dvd's on the large tv - Sky Sports is also available. The  bedrooms, though dated, are all individual in character and some of the nicest rooms are those with the most quirky features. All are ensuite, mostly twins but with the advantage of family suites and triple rooms providing a range of bedrooms to suit all needs.

If you are looking for a great value holiday to Val d'Isere, an unbeatable convenient location, with plentiful good food and a great team of welcoming staff (and are not expecting 4 or 5 star, chic and stylish accommodation!) then the Chamois crew  look forward to welcoming you.

Internet/wifi is available free of charge in all of our chalets,  however, in most instances  belongs to the chalet owner so its availability is outside of our control. Please bear in mind that in the mountains, signal strength can vary,  may not  always be that strong or suitable for large amounts of streaming. Unfortunately  we cannot guarantee that it will be operative or that there will be continuous and uninterrupted connection. In the event of technical or other issues preventing access, no refund or compensation will be paid! Bear in mind that access may not be available throughout the chalet and maybe in communal areas only. We recommend that if accessing the net or downloading is essential during your holiday,  you have your own data/roaming package for back up or make use a local internet shop.

Good quality ingredients and imaginative menus are the basis for our chalet cuisine. Whilst it is impossible to 'please all of the people all of the time' we do our best to present varied and appetizing menus that the majority of guests will enjoy. Having had particularly good feedback with some wonderful and generous comments about our menus, we are hopefully doing it right! In recognition of the fact that a three course meal every night is not always wanted, we have introduced a 'Simple Supper' evening. For one night each week we will serve  a two course simpler meal of  traditional homestyle favourites such as a tasty chicken curry, hearty sausage casserole,  lasagne or similar.

Chalet holidays are always about good skiing, good company and good food. The resorts we go to provide the good skiing,our staff provide the good food and so it is just down to you to provide the good company!

Our Chalet staff have a well earned day off during your stay. On this day, breakfast and afternoon tea will be laid out for you to help yourself and you are free to sample one of the local restaurants in the evening - our staff will be pleased to help with recommendations and bookings.

Start your day with a hearty breakfast to fuel your day on the slopes, choose from a selection of cereals (not forgetting a bowl of skiers' porridge!), fresh fruit and yoghurts, freshly baked local bread and choice of preserves accompanied by fruit juices, tea and coffee. In addition, apart from chalet staff day off and change over day, and assuming you have the room, enjoy a varied cooked breakfast such as eggs, bacon and beans or pancakes.

Afternoon tea
On your return from the slopes, pop the kettle on and help yourself to a teatime treat with a slice (or two) of delicious home-made cake or biscuits.

Just imagine a casual dinner party with friends, now imagine that minus the stress of shopping, cooking, clearing up, ordering taxis, organising babysitters....well now you can! 

It is a set menu dinner here which is a relaxed and friendly affair. With tables to suit different group sizes, house wine to hand, you will soon get to know your fellow guests whilst enjoying a  wonderful three course dinner (or two courses for Simple Supper night) created by our fantastic head chef.
