Xtra Chalet Champs Avalins

  • Espace Killy Ski Area, France, Val d'Isere

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

It is the location of any ski hotel counts and that’s where the Champs Avalins really scores. You can ski back to within just 50m of the chalet, and each morning you have a choice of lifts right on hand to whisk you up the mountain. This included the fast Symphony Gondola seating 10 people in 50 cabins and just beyond that it the Funival funicular going to the Bellevarde area. 

In common with the rest of Val d’Isère’s La Daille area, the chalet might not win any awards for the cutest or prettiest exterior in the Alps but inside, the Champs Avalins offers a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The attractive restaurant on the first floor has views to the piste, and forms the centrepiece of our chalet.

Our residents’ bar is ideal for afternoon, or pre-or post-dinner drinks and is a lively venue for swapping the day’s ski highlights.
