Champagny-en-Vanoise, Savoie, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes
Chalet Sapiniere is a large stylish chalet with a mixture of traditional and modern décor. Rough plaster walls done in the local Champagny style are complemented by beams, archways and decorative carpentry. It has a traditional yellow and blue tiled farmhouse kitchen with a brand new eye level oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. The very spacious open plan living and dining room has large picture windows and sliding doors onto the elevated terrace and balcony. It has an attractive fireplace in natural stone and weathered wood with plenty of comfy seating for 14 or more people - a combination of traditional savoyard sofas and deep voluptuous feather ones!<BR><BR>During the day, sunlight streams in through the windows and patio doors giving a tremendous feeling of light and space, yet if you close the curtains, light the fire a...

Chalet Sapiniere is part of a small group of associated chalets which can be combined to provide extra accommodation if needed, as we did. Our group of 13 couldn't fit Sapiniere with sleeping arrangements but by also taking Flocon we were very comfortable and all fitted round the table for our meals. To access the skiing you have a 'warm up the muscles' walk to the gondola, picking up your hire skis, on the way,...

For our first family ski trip this was an amazing experience. From the initial meet and greet, we were made to feel very welcome and able to sort out ski passes then get our skis, boots etc.We were so well looked after for the whole week, considering we were a large group of 14. The food was really amazing 3/4 course meal-tasty and wholesome-just what is needed when coming off the slopes.also catered for the...

From the moment you make your initial contact with Steve to the point where you are forced to say goodbye to James, one of the nicest and definitely the best chef's ever to grace a chalet, this is an absolute delight. The accommodation is fantastic - from the wonderful wellness suite to the super-comfortable beds - the staff are all friendly and professional and the food is absolutely top notch. Of course the skiing ain't...

This chalet was perfect, I've been so impressed. Let's start with the location, it's less than a ten minute (downhill) walk from the ski hire shop/ restaurants, and lift. It looks over Savoie with breathing taking views from the two double sliding doors of the south facing rear of the chalet.Within 5 minutes is a delicious boulangerie, a SPA for essentials, and this chalet sits off the main road so it easy to find.
