Needing a ski holiday and not having anyone to go with, I went to Chillchalet on the recommendation of a friend. It was really nice, sociable "posh hostel" style chalet. I had a room to myself and then shared with someone else from another group when it got busier. The food was great, no complaints from a veggie, it felt more like doing a mini-season than being on holiday. The short walk to the train means you're on the park side of the Les Arcs resort quicker than if you stayed in the villages of peisey/vallandry and there are lots of non-touristy but very cool bars and cafes to go to, a stumble from the front door. It is communal style - not a hotel but for a middle aged single - this is really good value for money.

Our excellent hearty food, comfortable accommodation and relaxed atmosphere make us a great option for your adventure in the French alps.We took over Chill Chalet in August and have made some noticeable change to the menu and overall guest experience.We are in the heart of Bourg St Maurice which is a lively market town at the base of the mountain situated only few minutes walk from the funicular up to Les Arcs. We own and manage the Chill Chalet ourselves, so we are always here and on hand to make sure your holiday is enjoyable and you get the great service!
