The lowdown

La Varappe is rich in history, beholding a magnificent stone fireplace at the core of the chalet where you will only want to curl up and enjoy the quintessentially British furnishings. Enjoy a sophisticated culinary experience in the cosy yet majestic dining room before you head off to the five charming super-king bedrooms.

The aesthetic is to die for, with rich mountain colours, tones of red and green, accentuated with furs and lavish textures. This chalet really feels like home from home, with an extra special touch. After your long day of skiing, get dropped off back at La Varappe and indulge in the steam room, hot tub and even put your feet up in the cosy cinema room.

This chalet is perfect for a family trip. There is an additional attic bedroom suitable for two or more children. Your children can retreat to their cosy, den-like bedroom under the eaves after their long day on the slopes.
