4 bedroom Apartment with sauna, log fire, and wi-fi
Chalet des Lanches is a new development located at the entrance to the village of Le Praz as you approach from the main valley. The duplex apartment offers 4 bedrooms, some with balcony. As well as the indoor sauna which offers guests an added relaxation option there is a lovely and spacious sitting room which opens onto a large terrace.
The main lifts (added for the 2019-2020 season) are just a 4 minute walk from the property, or 400m max and the pretty village centre of Le Praz is a two minute stroll away. There are a number of great restaurants and bars almost on the doorstep, including the excellent Drop Inn, so convenience is assured by staying here and skiing the awesome Courchevel and 3 Valleys ski area. This superb 123m2 duplex apartment can accommodate six adults and four children, in the 4 bedrooms. It is ideally located in the authentic and pretty village of Courchevel le Praz, with a short walk to the ski lift for convenient access to Courchevel 1850 and its big wide pistes.
The excellent chalet is laid out over 2 floors, with its exposed roof structure and its high ceilings combining with the clear white walls, creating an intimate atmosphere. The well equipped kitchen and the large living room will allow you to enjoy sitting in the chalet around the wood burning fireplace, ideal for spending time with the family or party, perhaps enjoying a good meal or drink.
The large bay windows in the living room offer you a beautiful view of the large terrace and the surrounding mountains, as well as allowing lots of natural light. There are two superb suites which can be set up as twins or doubles and a master bedroom, with a king bed, each with a balcony and all with their own bathroom. Upstairs you will find the children’s refuge with a dormitory room, with its two bunk beds for 4 again with its own bathroom. It is on this level where you will also find the living room, dining and kitchen area.
The chalet, made of wood and local materials, sets the scene for a warm and friendly atmosphere, perfect for spending time with family and friends. We have no doubt you will enjoy staying in this quality and convenient chalet.

France is the most popular Alpine country for British skiers and snowboarders and generally offers a more modern aspect of skiing in relation to towns and villages with many villages built around convenience for skiers and boarders alike.
There are of course a number of traditional French ski resorts. Courchevel is a key gateway to the vast area of the ‘Les Trois Vallæcopy;es’ which claims to be the biggest linked ski region in the world. Its rival is the Portes du Soleil network of ski areas (with Avoriaz and Morzine at its heart) which spreads across the French border into Switzerland.Pretty much the same size as the 3 Valleys, but both argue as to which is the largest, but its a close call.
The Three Valleys is dominated by four major resorts: Courchevel, Mæcopy;ribel, Les Menuires and Val Thorens – the highest ski resort in the Alps. Each of these four resorts has more than enough terrain to keep a skier or boarder happily and easily occupied for a week or more during a skiing holiday in France, so the opportunity to ski all four, as well as La Tania and St Martin de Belleville, provides innumerable options.
In the Portes du Soleil, neighbouring Avoriaz and Morzine are gateways to a dozen or more family ski resorts in France and Switzerland. Chamonix, dominated by the Mont Blanc Massif, is another major attraction with several resorts scattered along the valley, including Argentière, rated by some keen off-piste skiers and boarders as one of the best ski resorts in France – or the entire Alps for that matter. They will also be keen to try the Vallæcopy;e Blanche – a classic off-piste descent – with a high-mountain guide.
Another resort overlooked by the impressive Mont Blanc is Flaine, linked with a handful of resorts including Les Carroz and Samoens, with some of the most extensive slopes in France. That’s even more true of the Tignes-Val d’Isère Ski Area – the linked areas of Val d’Isère and Tignes – formerly called Espace Killy after the celebrated Olympic triple-gold medallist Jean-Claude Killy. Together these neighbouring resorts provide some of the most exciting skiing in France, particularly for off-piste enthusiasts. Tignes has the added advantage of regular glacier skiing on the Grande Motte glacier and like Val Thorens is regarded as THE most snow sure French resorts.
Two more giants of the French skiing world which are co joined and undoubtedly among the best family ski resorts in France, are La Plagne and Les Arcs.The area is known as Paradiski, linked by a huge cable car. La Plagne has a dozen or so linked hamlets and villages spread across slopes in all directions, while Les Arcs too, like Courchevel, has a handful of ski villages and satellite resorts at various altitudes.Arc 1950 and Vallandry are favourites.
La Clusaz is a traditional pretty village with some great skiing and ideal for people looking for a short transfer from Geneva.Great for families, short breaks or just for a week its a lovely traditional village we rate highly.Megeve, also offering a short transfer from Geneva, is a larger traditional village with a modern twang and again rates highly on our list for aesthetic beauty and convenience.Definitely another must see and ski resort.
Further south in the French Alps and accessed via flights to Grenoble and Lyon, are two more great resorts: Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez. High and snow sure and in the same part of the world, one the same ski pass, is the fabulous Serre Chevalier ski network, linked with the UNESCO world heritage site of Briançon and enjoying the wonderful Roman baths in Montier.
Montgenèvre also deserves a mention and if flying into Turin, the transfers are short, plus you have the opportunity to ski in both France and Italy during your ski holiday. Montgenèvre also boasts some of the best snow conditions in the French alps. Family friendly and snow sure La Rosiere also shares the same pass with La Thuile also in Italy and comes recommended especially as peak times as its quieter than other French ski resorts.
