Fantastic skiing in Risoul

  • 5 of 5

The location of the chalet was perfect, skiing from the door was excellent. The chalet was well equipped with lots of nice little homely touches. Christian was very helpful and everything went very smoothly. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Risoul. We ate out one night at L'Entrepot. The meal was fantastic and the staff were very friendly.

A big thank you to Christian for all his help.

A charming chalet that's truly ski-in ski-out,

  • 5 of 5

On our second visit to Risoul, we looked enviously from our apartment towards a cluster of chalets scattered beside the piste and thought “that’s where we want to stay next time”.

We were not wrong to be envious. This is one of those chalets beside the piste and it’s everything we hoped for. Comfortable, well-equipped, truly ski-in, ski-out and great views across the ski area. The kids can make snow men in front, there’s a sunny terrace to sit out on and, best of all, there’s no ski-locker scrum in the morning.

The owner, Christian, was very helpful and easy to deal with and his attention to detail put everything we needed at our fingertips. I recommend this chalet unreservedly.

Owner's Response: TRADUCTION : "Un charmant chalet qui est vraiment ski aux pieds" Pour notre seconde visite à Risoul, nous avions repéré de chez nous un groupe de chalets, dispersés à côté de la piste et je me suis dit : "c'est là que nous voulons séjourner la prochaine fois". Nous avions raison car ce chalet au bord de la piste a répondu à tout ce que nous attendions. Confortable, bien équipé, vraiment "ski aux pieds" et avec une vue imprenable sur le domaine skiable. Les enfants peuvent faire des bonhommes de neige juste en face, il y a une terrasse ensoleillée où s'asseoir, et, le top : il n'y a pas à subir la cohue du local à skis le matin... Le propriétaire, Christian, est très serviable et attentionné, et son souci du détail a mis tout ce qu'il fallait à notre portée. Je recommande sans réserve ce chalet.
