Overview

Le Vieux Crêt has probably become Val d'Isère's most des res chalet for eight to ten guests.

The chalet hasn't changed. It is still one of Val d'Isère's only genuinely old buildings, being part of the 1620s farmhouse which also contains our Maison du Rocher. Its walls are as thick as ever, its granite roof as heavy, though you probably won't see that under a metre or so of snow.

The huge, high-ceilinged sitting room is still wonderfully comfortable, with its log fire, multi-channel surround-sound satellite TV, DVDs, Wifi etc. There is a separate dining room, and a mezzanine where ninth and tenth guests can stay half-price.

The four bedrooms are small but smart, with good cupboards and lots of lighting. Two are doubles and two twins which can be made into doubles (please specify which you'd prefer when booking). Bedroom 4 is on the ground floor, as are the chef's cell and a sauna. Mercifully few of our guests use the sauna properly, rolling naked in the deep snow of our private garden, whipping each other with birch twigs, but quite a few find it a pleasant remedy for post-dramatic-stretch-disorder.

Location

Le Vieux Crêt is in a brilliant position, in that collection of lovely wood-and-stone chalets just on the left as one reaches Val d'Isère proper from La Daille. The hamlet is called le Crêt - the Ridge - and is considered the Boltons of Val d'Isère (not to be confused with the Bolton). Le Vieux Crêt is at the sunny front, and although its garden wall overhangs the road 50m away and 10m below, there is seldom a sound. There is a steepish little path to the road, with bus stops to the Funival and village centre a further 100m or so. If you chose to walk, either would take ten minutes.

But it seems that to twenty-first century Vieux Crêt guests public transport is unpalatable, walking unthinkable and a snowy path non-negotiable! So we have a private Land Rover to ferry guests from this chalet and La Maison du Rocher and La Croix next door to and from any point they choose in Val d'Isère from 8.30 to 10am, and 3.30 to 8pm. The loveliest old chalet in Val d'Isère is just a few paces from all of its lifts.
