Situated on THE MAIN piste, Chalet Le Panoramic boasts the most prestigious location in La Clusaz.

With breath taking panoramic views of the mountain range and the entire village (a pleasant five minutes walk away) the whole family is able to ski to and from the chalet door placing you directly onto any of the numerous superb slopes.

What gives Chalet Le Panoramic the edge over the rest is individuality and personal attention to detail, this lies at the heart of the chalet where the owners; Simon and Lisa and their team of four can often be found cooking up delights, tending the roaring fire, manning the bar or readying the hot tub!

What you find at Chalet Le Panoramic is the personal touch rather than the impersonal processed holiday often found in larger hotels or corporately owned chalets.

Your hosts:: Simon and Lisa have lived in La Clusaz for twenty years, during which time they have fallen head over heels in love with the Alps.

The Clarke’s have found that after dedicating so much of themselves to creating a genuine home and retreat, many of their subsequent guests have returned year after year feeling that as soon as they are back in the village they have “come home!“

Whether you are arriving for the first time or coming home, you can rest assured Simon, Lisa and team are dedicated to do all the hard work for you, providing a service that is second to none (so all your energy is reserved for the piste)!

Six days out of seven Simon and Lisa are in the kitchen preparing hearty breakfasts, wonderful cakes and sumptuous dinners for their guests. Food is everything to them, and this is evident when you sit down in the evening at the candle lit table and taste the no-nonsense yet soul-satisfying cuisine!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our first trip to a catered chalet however our third holiday in La Clusaz. From our initial enquiry which was dealt with by Lisa who was so helpful, I felt like I had to visit this Chalet.

When we arrived it felt like we were visiting friends, although they were professional at all times.

Amazing food and drinks , it was so nice to have our son well fed and in bed prior to our wonderful meals being served.

Ski in ski out was perfect. After the first day of my panic trying to get our 5 year old son down the slopes (me being very nervous).... no problems the team just offer to drive you down to the class with ESF. Perfect.....

I did try a lesson with ESI which was also fantastic.

The team of Andrew, Danni, Richard and Alice were so warm, friendly and so accomodating. They made you feel so relaxed.

We would love to return asap.

Thank you to all the team you were amazing.

A Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

For once you can believe all the hype on their website. It really is on the piste. Lisa and Simon really do go "that little bit extra" in their attention to detail and looking after their guests. We will certainly return as had many of the guests who were there during our stay. Meals were excellent and the "free" bar was well received, but not abused. The staff were very friendly and attentive.

The property was cleaned every day and the welcoming chocs in the bedroom was a lovely touch.

What do I look for in a skiing holiday?

Easy travel. Good snow. Ski-in, ski-out. Friendly people. Excellent food. Comfort.

This place has it all - in spades.

From pick-up at the airport, their thoughtful, helpful approach is clear. They add nice touches like collection and return of hired gear, pre-arranged passes and lessons, toiletries & robes in the room, a warm boot room and a piste-side hot tub.

The food is absolutely top-notch. A great breakfast sets you up for the day, freshly home-made cakes welcome you back in the afternoon and canapés are served with pre-dinner drinks. All this is topped off with superb dinners and good wine.

The skiing is excellent with an efficient lift system and there is good food on the slopes. (If you hadn't guessed, I do like food).

The pretty village is only a short walk away with a good selection of shops - and restaurants!.

I’ll be back!

A perfect package

  • 5 of 5

This chalets position overlooking the pretty village of La Clusaz certainly has panoramic views! If it were only for these we would still return year after year as we do.

I think the spell this place holds over me is the combination of fantastic customer service we have had from Lisa and Simon over the years and their current team, [I must mention them all by name, Ben, Ellie, Alice & Richard], the kick your shoes off and relax atmosphere at all times in the 'Panoramic', the wonderful food and of course not least the Ski in Ski out location on the edge of the slopes just above the village.

I have and do continue to recommend Panoramic to friends, it is always spotlessly clean and well maintained, I would say it is just like a home from home but I wouldnt presume we are that clean or tidy!!!

This chalet is magnificent

  • 5 of 5

A true ski in/ski out. (With hot tub too!) The food was fabulous, each and every meal was delicious. We really looked forward to the evenings after a long day on the slopes. I couldn’t fault the holiday at all but the one thing that really stood out from other chalets was the cheerfulness and helpful attitude of all the staff. We are seasoned chalet goers and Chalet Panoramic is by far the best we have come across. I would recommend it to anyone.

Thanks for all your efforts. We hope to return next year.

Good luck with the rest of the season.

Thank you Chalet Panoramic!

  • 5 of 5

Chalet Panoramics excellent team made our recent stay completly enjoyable and relaxing.

We had a fantastic holiday and found the chalet to be very comfortable and child friendly. The food, location, attention to detail was truly superb.

Lisa's organising of ski lessons and child care made the holiday so easy. All this and on the piste too!

We hope to return again next year.
