Alongside its sister chalets Mathilda, Alice and Marie, Chalet Pauline epitomises the clever blend of the classic-look ski chalet allied with feature packed facilities to give some of the best ski chalet accommodation in the Alps. The design incorporates copious amounts of wood and as soon as you enter the chalet you are cosseted by the calm and warmth of the chalet - exactly what you would expect a traditional chalet to offer. The size of the chalet is impressive for a five bedroom property. The second floor living room is dominated by the open fireplace and panoramic windows overlooking Val d'Isère and the surrounding mountains. In warmer weather there's nothing better than sipping champagne on the balcony as the sun slowly slips behind the snow covered peaks. The living area is open plan, with a separate kitchen. Beautifully presented meals are served by your private chef on the main dining table although a smaller dining alcove allows children to have their own dinner party away from the adults. As you would expect from a chalet of this quality, Pauline boasts a comprehensive entertainment system plus Wifi throughout and TVs with Freesat in each bedroom.
Above the living area, one bedroom occupies the whole top floor, giving the perfect place to rest your tired limbs, kept warm by luxuriously fluffy duvets. Of the other bedrooms, each is dominated by the warm wood, but each is distinct in its character - Chalet Pauline does not do standard box shaped rooms! Three of these bedrooms are on the first floor including (arguably) the master room with it separate dressing area, well crafted bathroom and views towards the mountains.
The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor, next to the wellness area of the Chalet Pauline. Relaxing after a day's skiing is a vital part of any ski holiday, and what better way than to take a relaxed swim in the swimming pool before soothing muscles and cleansing your skin in the steam room. Alternatively just sit back on a lounger and drift off in anticipation of a pre-dinner glass of champagne. There is a separate TV room on the ground floor which is a great place for children to play or for some of your party to enjoy a film. The ground floor is completed by the ski room with the heated boot rack making sure your boots are perfectly ready for the next day's skiing.
Although the Scott Dunn shuttle service will take you to the lifts, the chalet is in the quiet and exclusive Les Fermes area of Val d'Isère, only a 10 minute walk to the centre of the village. Close enough for convenience but secluded enough to avoid any late night noise from the village.
Chalet Pauline effortlessly blends the best of traditional chalet architecture with modern day sophistication to deliver an outstanding luxury chalet experience. If your requirements for a ski chalet holiday are traditional design, spacious living areas and bedrooms, en-suite facilities, swimming pool, steam room, open log fire, delicious food and wine served beautifully and modern entertainment systems then it delivers perfectly. Whether you are travelling with children or a group of adults, Chalet Pauline will take it all in its stride.
Chalet Pauline has five bedrooms all featuring traditional wooden beams and Moroccan style ceilings. Three of the five bedrooms are large, making them ideal for sitting in peace and quiet and reading a book (or accommodating a cot or an extra bed).
The party leader can choose between two bedrooms which could be considered the master. Room 5 has a South facing balcony and is particularly spacious but Room 2 has a cosy sofa corner and a view of the Isère valley.
Each room has an en-suite bath or shower room decorated with a mixture of wood and modern slate tiles. All bedrooms have electronic safes.

Chalet Pauline benefits from a fabulous Wellness area with indoor swimming pool with jet stream and steam room. Also on the ground floor is the ski/boot area with boot warmers. The separate TV room is a great facility offering children their own space to play, watch TV or to use the X-Box 360. Alternatively it could be used to accommodate an extra person if your party is bigger than 10 or it can provide a quiet office space if required.
In the living area, Pauline is equipped with flat screen, satellite TV, DVD player and sound system. There is also a selection of games.

There's nothing better after a day's skiing than a wonderful gourmet feast, created by your own private chef, tailored to your party and served with finesse.
In your luxury catered chalet the fire pops and crackles in the background as you sip a glass of Laurent-Perrier, and take bite of a mouthwatering canapé. As your attentive host discreetly fills your glass, you can lie back and relax as the muscles in your legs buzz with the day's activities.
Incredible smells drift from the kitchen, where your private chef is putting the finishing touches to dinner: paprika wafer with tiger prawns, followed by fillet of beef and thyme rosti. And when the sticky toffee and cardamom pudding appears, you realise resistance is futile.
