Overview

About the property

9 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, sleeps from 14 to 19 people. Indoor swimming pool

Chalet Marmotte is a delightful catered ski chalet in the lively award winning ski resort of Champagny en Vanoise, Paradiski. It is in a prime position at the front of the village so there are no other chalets to spoil your perfect views and being such a compact resort, everything you could possibly need, including the lifts & pistes are just a 5 mins walk from the chalet. Our experienced chef will spoil you with delicious home cooked meals every day, high quality food that reflects our passion for fresh regional produce and enthusiasm for cooking. For relaxation you have the luxury of our lovely new indoor swimming pool, hot tub & sauna suite. There is plenty of other in-house entertainment, with satellite TV, a large surround sound flat screen TV, i-pod dock, Nintendo Wii and table tennis & pool in the games room. If you fancy a stroll after dinner, the shops, cafes and friendly bars in the village are only a stones throw away, with the main bars often having live bands & DJ's until the early hours.

Champagny en Vanoise - Village Resort: Champagny is an authentic mountain village with a character that still reflects its ancient farming origins. Tiny paths link old farms and chalets in a village where traditional Savoie life and modern tourism mesh seamlessly together. The village has a lively atmosphere with shops, bars & restaurants within easy walking distance. At night, Le Timbale, Les Rochers & le Pichouan are the main focal points for drinking and dancing with live bands and D.J.'s.

Skiing & Boarding at Champagny: A cable-car whisks skiers to the Champagny ski area (2000m) in just 7 minutes which is where you’ll find the nursery slopes. Three brilliant long blue runs are great to learn on and progress to while advanced skiers can zip on to the superb off piste either side. You have a choice of two red runs to take you back to the village at the end of the day. Champagny offers direct access into La Plagne, but is less busy, so is much quieter and more pleasant, especially during peak weeks.

Skiing & Boarding the Paradiski Area which includes both La Plagne and Les Arcs, the two linked together by the biggest cable car in the world, the huge 'Vanoise Express Telecabine'. The whole ski area covers a massive 425km of finely groomed pistes in one of the biggest interlinked ski areas in Europe. With over 180 blue and red runs to cruise down, most skiers and boarders can travel vast distances around the 16 villages. Some very long black runs descend both the Bellecote Glacier (3250m) and the Aiguille Rouge (3225m) both on and off piste. There are also several, into the pretty tree lined runs descending into Vallandry , Plan Peissey and Montchavin. There are also numerous mogul fields in the area and 2 board parks, half pipes and boarder cross runs.

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We – a group of 12, family and friends – visited Chalet Marmotte Feb 2013. Huge success. Very friendly staff, always ready to help. Chalet had a good size - We didn’t sleep to close, like you can sometimes experience in French Chalets and apartments. There was a short walk from the Chalet to the lift, but it wasn’t really a problem.

Amazing facilities at this relaxed chalet, attentive staff and great food so a great combination!

  • 5 of 5

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!

wonderful ski retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week in Champangny staying in Chalet Marmotte.

The chalet was warm and inviting with plenty of space for the whole group. We were looked after really well by Sarah the resort manager and the whole team making lift passes and ski hire seamless.

The chalet is conveniently located with just a short walk to ski shop and lifts. Champagny is a lovely small resort with a good selection of bars and shops we were there the first week of the season so it was really quiet which suited us fine.

The chalet had everything we needed with comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms and hot water! The communal area worked well and spent most evenings in here by the fire playing silly games. There was plenty of seating for everyone.

The chalet staff were amazing and we were very well looked after, cooked breakfast everyday, lovely cake in the afternoon and a delicious evening meal. A real treat.

The other facilities were the icing on the cake, having the pool, hot tubs and games room were an added bonus, but as we were so lucky with the snow we spent most of our time on the slopes. We had one non-skier in the group who really enjoyed her daily dip in the pool with a view.

Thank you Barelli Ski for a fantastic week and excellent service.

Fantastic facility for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed at Chalet Marmotte and I more than lived up to the reputation I t had gained first time around.

Champagy is a small resort - in fact it is more a small Alpine farming village with some skiing facilities - but it is a stunning location and the easy access o the La Plagne ski area gives loads of options for all standards of skier.

The chalet it self is well appointed and the facilities are great. It is hard to beat looking down the valley from the hot tub after a hard days skiing.

However the staff are the real clinching factor here. They are friendly, make sure the basics (passes, equipment hire, lesson bookings, transfers) are looked after with the minimum of fuss, provide advice and tips about skiing and other local facilities but best of all provide an excellent catering experience.

I would happily recommend this chalet to anyone but it would particularly suit a groups of friend or an extended family.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from the situation of the chalet (little village with stunning views across the valley), bedrooms & general areas (comfortable, stylish and homely), food (varied, plentiful & absolutely delicious), facilities (there is nothing better than soaking your weary muscles in an outdoor hot tub with stunning scenery all around) and the staff (friendly, efficient and so helpful). In fact it was my birthday when we were there & Kiki made me one of the most delicious chocolate birthday cakes I've ever eaten (that washed down with champagne was memorable). It was a fantastic holiday. If you want a piece of heaven - both to stay and ski you needn't look elsewhere.
