Chalet Appaloosa is located in one of France's most chic and desirable ski resorts, Val d'Isère. This stunning Savoyard village has loads of character and charm, plus one of the most highly regarded ski areas in the world. The connected area of Val d'Isère and Tignes offer over 300km of slopes, with something to suit all abilities, plus one of the best snow records in all of France. The chalet can be found on the Route du Petit Alaska, a pretty and peaceful street just a few minutes' walk to the main high street of Val d'Isère, where you'll find a fantastic selection of bars, shops and restaurants. The chalet is approximately 10 minutes' walk from the Solaise and Bellevarde lifts, which give fast access to the whole of the Val d'Isere-Tignes area, but guests staying at Chalet Appaloosa wont' need to worry about the walk in the morning, Ski France provides a free shuttle service to you off and pick you up from the lifts each day.
Chalet Appaloosa is a stunning property which has been cleverly designed to blend Savoyard chalet traditions with a comfortable and modern finish. Set over four flours, with lift access too, Appaloosa is incredibly spacious and can sleep up to fourteen guests in its seven cosy bedrooms. With its own hot tub and steam room, we're certain this will make a wonderful chalet for a group of friends or family. It's also an excellent choice if you're looking for a property with disabled access, as there is a lift which serves all four floors of the chalet.
Entrance to the chalet is on the ground floor, where you'll find a spacious ski and boot room complete with heated boot drier, so no need to worry about cold toes when you hit the slopes each morning. There is a large dining room, with plenty of space for fourteen guests. The dining room has been beautifully furnished with elegant chandeliers above the table the focal point of the room. The kitchen is separate, but next door to the dining room. It's a semi-professional kitchen with stainless steel work surfaces and fully equipped with oven, hob, dishwasher, a large fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, nespresso machine and coffee percolator, so you should have everything you require to rustle up a feast for all your family and friends. Outside the kitchen and dining room is a spacious balcony, a great spot to enjoy aperitifs and nibbles before dinner and enjoy the stunning views of the surrounding area whilst the sun sets. There is a mezzanine level on the ground floor, where you'll find a large and spacious living area with a roaring log fire and wonderfully comfortable sofas.
Unusually after the ground floor in this chalet, you then head down rather than up. On the lower first floor you'll find three bedrooms with twin beds, each with its own balcony and two of which have en-suite bathrooms and WC and the third which has an en-suite shower room and WC. There is a fourth bedroom on this level which has a large double bed, balcony and en-suite bathroom with WC. On the lower second floor there are two bedrooms with twin beds, and one bedroom with a large double bed, each with its own en-suite bathroom, WC and balcony.
Head downstairs again, or take the lift if you prefer, and you'll find an indoor hot tub and steam room, the perfect spot in which to relax and ease those aching muscles after a tiring day on the ski slopes.
There is free WI-Fi throughout the chalet, perfect if you need to work whilst away, or stream your favourite film or TV shows whilst relaxing in front of the roaring fire. If you drive to Val d'Isère, there is space for two cars to park on the driveway right outside the chalet.

Classic Contactless Catering Service
This operator presents the next generation of chalet holidays, for a contactless world. Your chalet will be ready on arrival - beds made, dinner ready and fridges stocked*, wine-cellars replenished, skis and lift passes all booked. But you won't see them. They'll be at the end of the phone, but there will be no contact unless you need it. You and your family will be safe and looked after, as they work in the background, providing everything you need.
Their contactless catering service comes with the choice of two pricing options, a fixed menu with food and drink included in the price, and our à la carte option which allows you greater flexibility to eat and drink whatever you desire and the cost of the food is on supplement, at cost price, and depending on what produce you choose to order.
For those looking for a simple packaged chalet price, they are offering an all-inclusive price, which includes rental of the chalet and your food and drink for the week. Included will be breakfast, afternoon tea, a three-course dinner on 6 out of 7 nights, plus unlimited wine and some beers. They have prepared a delicious menu for the week, with a mix of ready prepared meals from a local delicatessen and easy to cook dishes or sides. All that will be required from you is to pop a few things in the oven and throw together a few ingredients to make a simple salad, or steam a few vegetables as sides to your main meal.
Perhaps you want the freedom to choose your own menus, or perhaps you'd prefer to eat out more than one evening during the week, or you just love to cook yourself and enjoy the holidays where you have time to do this in a relaxed way. That's where our à la carte contactless catering service comes in. As an alternative to the service detailed above, this operator will also offer a lower rate, which does not include the food and drink for the week and we will give you the opportunity to order the food and drink of your choice, at the local hypermarket rates, and bill you for this afterwards. Four days before arrival, you will receive a comprehensive provisions list with everything you could possibly need for your holiday. That might be oven-ready meals, or the ingredients you'll need for Bolognaise, Soufflés or Cheese Fondues. Dry goods, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat or fish, beers, wines, champagne, whatever, all bought for you and stocked in advance.
The aim is to provide the safest possible environment for a ski holiday, whilst staying as affordable as possible. The new way to holiday will be by enjoying the facilities, food and beverages but without the staff waiting on you hand and foot. That will keep things safe and affordable. However, for those in search of a little more luxury, this operator is able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed at the time of booking or with their concierge service prior to arrival.
Beds made on arrival, with bathrobes and slippers, mid-week and end of stay cleaning, satellite TV and free wifi. Our contactless catering service, where we shop, deliver and stock your kitchen before your arrival and half-way through your stay.*
*The backstage team's work of organising and delivering provisions and cleaning the chalet is all included in the marked chalet price. If you choose the “Contactless catering service”, the price also includes all your food and drink for the week. We will provide you with breakfast every day, afternoon tea and snacks, pre-dinner nibbles, plus a three-course dinner on six of the seven nights, which also includes unlimited red and white wine and a few beers.
**Please note that for the à la carte option, all food, drink, ski hire and lift passes come at additional costs and are not included in the chalet price. Provisions will be billed at cost price and can be ordered from the list that will be sent out to you, and ski hire and lift passes can be booked in advance with our preferential rates. For our fixed menu option, the price does not include ski hire and lift passes, but it does include breakfast and afternoon tea for 7 days, plus a 3-course dinner with beer and wine for 6 days.
Important Covid-19 refund promise
It’s an exceptional year which requires exceptional booking conditions. This operator will allow free cancellation up until a week prior to arrival for their 2020/21 Ski Chalet Holidays. If you have to cancel in the 7 days prior to arrival due to government enforced restrictions to travel or movement (a travel ban between your place of residence and destination; self-isolation rulings or a lockdown in your place of residence or resort closure) they will allow you to defer the booking, at the same price, to the next year, or keep all monies paid as a holiday credit on any holiday with this operator for the following 2 years.
A copy of the full terms and conditions are available on request.
Please Note - This operator features two types of Contactless Catering, Classic and Premium. Please see the description above for full details on which of these two options is included with this holiday.
Chalet holidays are not new, but how they will work in Covid-times (and after Brexit) has required new thinking. This winter this operator will launch the next generation of Chalet Holidays for a contactless world. This chalet will be ready on arrival - beds made, dinner ready, fridges stocked, wine-cellars replenished, skis and lift passes all booked. But you won’t any staff. They’ll be at the end of the phone, but there will be no contact. You and your family will be safe and looked after, as they work in the background, providing everything you need.
How it works
Four days before arrival you'll be sent a comprehensive provisions list with everything you would want for your holiday. That might be oven-ready meals or the ingredients you’ll need for Bolognaise, Soufflés or Cheese Fondues. Dry goods, dairy, fresh fruit and veg, fresh meat or fish, beers, wines, whatever, all bought for you and stocked in advance. Beds will be made, bathrobes and slippers in the bathrooms, logs in the fireplace. Midweek, when you are out skiing, the professional concierge team will be back. Towels changed, beds made, chalet fully cleaned, fridge restocked.
Is it expensive?
Of course, there’s a cost for providing the services but it’s built into the price. The provisions collected in advance will be billed transparently at cost price with no mark-up. However, the whole chalet will be better value than you’ll have paid last year. Why? Because you’ll be paying local professional staff to provision, clean and care for your chalet.
What if you want more?
This operator will aim to provide the safest possible environment for a ski holiday, whilst offering affordability that is more important than ever. The new way to holiday will be by enjoying the facilities, food and beverages but without the staff waiting on you hand and foot. That will keep things safe and affordable. However, for those in search of a little more luxury, this operator is able to provide drivers, chefs, daily cleaning, ski lessons etc, all of which can be discussed on booking or with our concierge service prior to arrival.
What measures are in place for protecting us from Covid?
Chalet teams have cleaning and safety protocols to follow and this operator has reinforced the cleaning process with the recommended products to ensure the safety for all. Particular attention is paid to frequent points of contact (door handles, remote controls, light switches…). The chalet is thoroughly aired prior to arrival and staff wear masks and gloves at all time whilst working.
