CATERED SKI CHALET AVAILABLE BETWEEN 16 - 26 DEC for short or long ski break. Up the winding mountain road to the church square and the village of Montorlin, and a beautiful 250 year old converted farmhouse owned and run by Liza and Andy as a catered ski chalet. Alastair Sawday's Guides have featured this lovely place in The Guardian as one of 10 chalets to treat yourself to this winter. The stunning top floor features an open plan living and dining area, with amazing views up and down the Tarentaise valley across to the distant peaks of Mont Blanc. Balconies open off 2 sides of the house from picture windows. The airy living room has huge, squashy sofas, a log fire and an extensive library. Wifi, playstation, DVDs and CDs provide the modern entertainment. Mountains, inc. Is owner run, and dedicated to good service. Guests will be fed yummy breakfasts and afternoon teas daily, with excellent three course meals and unlimited wine 6 days a week. Tea time might include hot chocolates and mulled wine. Dinner time drinks include a house champagne cocktail, a local kir, the grolla, and genepi; and pre-dinner nibbles of some of the local specialities. Children are always welcome, with early evening suppers and all the accoutrements of childhood from cots and high chairs to prams, sleds and even toys. And if you want to bring all three generations there is a discount for over 65s too. Liza will pre-purchase your lift passes, arrange any ski lessons, and organise your ski hire for in chalet delivery and fitting. When you arrive, you have absolutely no queuing to do and we get you straight on to the slopes. Our private minibus takes you the 3 minutes from the chalet door to the telecabine every morning - you decide what time! Call us from the slopes or a bar for a pick up and we'll be there to meet you.
