About Estelle Hitchcock
Hello! We live in Exeter, Devon (UK) and are an active family with 3 children who love the winter ski-ing/snowboarding season but have been amazed at the beauty of the summer in the mountains and all the activities available to us from white water rafting, walking, climbing, mountain biking and yet also enjoy relaxing by the lake!!
Estelle Hitchcock purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Estelle Hitchcock chose Champagny-en-Vanoise
We are an active family and love mountain biking, walking, swimming, ski-ing and snowboarding, we wanted somewhere we could all enjoy summer and winter seasons; Champagny-en-Vanoise provides access to all this, yet is a South facing, pretty, traditional, alpine village positioned on the edge of the Vanoise National Park.

Perfect location. Clean, cozy great size apartment. Loved our stay can't wait to visit next year.
Lovely apartment and very convenient for the slopes
Apartment was perfect for our family of four and equipped with everything you might need.
Location very convenient for the slopes, so much so that we tended to ski back for lunch and give the children a rest. The terrace was a perfect sun trap with gorgeous views.
Ultimate recommendation is that this will be our first choice when we return to Champagny!!
fantastic apartment for skiing!!
We loved our recent stay and Estelle made the whole process very straightforward. The apartment was very close to the gondola which is what we wanted and the village was quiet with a few nice restaurants and bars. Would definitely recommend and hoping to come back in summer
Wonderful Cosy Apartment with Amazing Views
Stayed with my husband and three boys 15,13 & 6 over New Year and had a fantastic holiday. The apartment is clean and warm with a very well equipped kitchen. Lots of storage and hooks to hang clothes, coats etc and the added bonus of two bathrooms and lovely finishing touches. Perfect place to switch off and make wonderful memories. Ideal position for the gondola, village center, swimming pool and spa. Thank you Estelle we will be back 😊�
Thank-you, you are welcome to return anytime!
Lovely apartment, great town.
Estelle was a pleasure to deal with. The apartment was as described, and very clean (cleanest place we have stayed in 6 months of travel). Our favourite thing was the outdoor sitting space, beautiful views and enough room for everyone to sit and relax.
Some notes: the laundromat is a bit of a drive, either bring enough clothes or plan to do laundry while shopping in Sal les thermes (easy and fast).
Champagny en vanoise has so much to enjoy in the summer. We went for pony rides, hikes, spent a few nights in a refuge up the mountain. The pool in town is great, and the lifts that run in the summer up the mountain make hiking with kids a lot easier.
The bakery is very close (2 blocks at most) and has some of the best croissants in France. Thank you Estelle for sharing this gem with us.
Thank-you! So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Please re visit us again in the future.
Wonderful, active Summer alpine family holiday
The apartment was ideal for us as a base for an active family holiday with our 2 children (6 & 4). The view from the balcony is tremendous and a great place to unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine. The bakery down the road makes for a fun walk before breakfast to collect croissants or chocolate bread! It is a great location for cycling, walking and swimming.
Would love to come back especially in the Winter for the skiing
