Very nice place for a large group, enjoyed the food and the facilities.
We stayed in chalet Marmotte for 4 days, when we visited Champagny for a ski break.
Communication with the owner was great, with a lot of information provided in advance as well as a lot of options given (buy our ski passes for us with a small discount per pass as well, food choices, ski lessons, airport transfer).
The chalet manager also contacted us separately to provide information and ask if we had any special requirements.
The chalet is part of a complex of several other properties it shares some of the facilities (sauna, swimming pool, game room). It is in a quite neighborhood, approximately 400 meters from the gondola that connects Champagny with the rest of La Plagne. Unfortunately it is fairly uphill to get to the gondola but the chalet team ahs made an arrangement with a ski hire location next to the lift for the customers to leave their shoes there.
The place has 20 beds in total but it gets very tight if all the beds are occupied. Also the rooms in reality are 7 with 2 of them being family rooms with a mezzanine space above the main room with 4 and 2 extra beds respectively. These are great for kids but if the group has more than 7 couples, sleeping arrangements can be made complicated.
The team that hosted us and sorted the breakfast and dinner were really polite, professional and enthusiastic about hosting us. They made every effort to please us and made our stay enjoyable. Breakfast could have more variety and quantity but the team there made extra effort to accommodate us once we pointed that out. Dinner was really good with 3 courses that were different every day and some special arrangements for a toddler in the group.
Overall a really nice time, definitely would recommend it for a large group, especially if there are families with kids. If the group is more than 16-18 adults with several couples, it might be worth combining it with one of the other smaller properties in the complex.
A lovely stay with gorgeous food!
We had a great time in our chalet!
The upstairs rooms where perfect for families and the loft rooms where great for our children who enjoyed their “dens”!
The food was delicious, each night we where more and more impressed with the food served. The staff where really kind and helpful. One member was even qualified in massages!
The pool was gorgeous and relaxing with two options for jacuzzis, one communal (with 2-3 other chalets) and one private, set in our massive garden!
Steve was great and very helpful when booking!
Great chalet as decribed, loved the pool and hot tub and team are keen to please
We stayed here in a group and the chalet team were happy to cater for our weird dietary needs. The hot tub was refilled daily and the views are fantastic. The pool was good for a dip and the sauna was super. The chalet team catered to our every need and we had a comfy stay. You do have a warm up walk to the lift and the bubble is good to avoid the icy runs home. The recommended hire shop was helpful and well stocked too! Great value for facilities offered. Highly recommend a stay here!
Amazing facilities at this relaxed chalet, attentive staff and great food so a great combination!
Thanks Barrelli for a fantastic week at Chalet Marmotte. Nik’s food was fantastic and there was lots of it. We particularly loved Joe and his dry sense of humour and laid back approach to hosting us! The chalet is run with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere but the staff are always there to help when needed which suited us great. The chalet is located in a lovely quiet spot, with stunning views but still close to the village and skiing. The walk up to the lift is steep but not long so we power walked up in the morning for a good little warm up! You don't have to do in your ski boots as we collected our equipment from the boot warming racks at the ski hire shop near the lift every morning. We especially loved the pool and hot tub in front of the chalet which both had amazing views across the valley. Steve was really helpful during the booking process and seamlessly organised our airport transfers and we pre booked our ski passes through the resort manager Sarah, so they were waiting for us in the resort but we didn't have to pay until we arrived. All in all, it was a great holiday, we will definitely be back next year!
an amazing house on an awesome location
we had an unforgettable time with all colleagues and partners together. a super teambuilding that has done well for everyone. to fully relax and enjoy in a fairy-like setting. very nice breakfast and dinner. we can recommend it to everyone
1 hour from Chambery Airport, 2hrs from Geneva Airport, 2.5 hrs from Lyon or Grenoble Airport and only 20 minutes from Moutiers Railway Station. Champagny en Vanoise is an authentic village ski resort directly linked into the huge Paradiski ski area (La Plagne and Les Arcs). It is also just a 15 minute drive from La Tania, Courchevel and the 3 Valleys. The chalet is just 400m from the pistes and lifts and 350m from the village centre, with all its bars, cafés, restaurants and shops. At the foot of the ski lift is the ski hire shop we use, where you can leave all your ski equipment, enabling you to walk to and from the chalet in your normal shoes
Other Activities: Ice Karting, Bob Sleigh, Skidoo Rides.

About Barrelli Ski
Established in 1992, Barrelli Ski, owned by Steve and Emma have been running this our first fully catered chalet since last century! We now run 2 large chalets and 2 smaller apartments nestled here together in a horseshoe type arrangement. After Chalet Marmotte went so well, we added the 14 person Chalet Sapiniere (#3489) in 2001, a 6-8 person Apt. Flocon in 2003 (#439615) and then finally the 4-6 person Apt. Glacon in 2008, which was the last to complete the set! This gave us autonomy over the whole immediate area! This chalet can be taken on its own or in conjunction with our other chalet and apartments, depending on group numbers and levels of privacy or communality required! An indoor swimming pool and spa were built in 2010 adding another dimension to this already fantastic chalet. Our two boys were born in 2005 and 2007 and learnt to ski in Champagny and Les Houches where we also own a fantastic 15 person chalet - Rocky Mountain (#3081). We have lived in various places in the UK and now love living near sandy surfing beaches in beautiful Cornwall!
Barrelli Ski purchased this Chalet in 1999
Why Barrelli Ski chose Champagny-en-Vanoise
It is in a beautiful situation in a real French village - a fantastic ski resort in its own right with links to practically unlimited skiing and snowboarding. It has a fast, modern lift system and lots of affordable family and beginner passes and various lesson and ski pass options. In essence, we fell in love with Champagny because it has the best of both worlds! It has a fantastic ski area but also a natural charm and ambience which makes it different to many mass marketed ski resorts.
What makes this Chalet unique
It is in a stunning setting with beautiful views. Everyone loves looking out at the cold snowy mountains from the warm jacuzzi and swimming pool! We are a small family business with nearly 30yrs knowledge and experience, so we really feel we have finely honed our product over many years. Our top priority is providing high quality food and service at very affordable prices.
