Orchidee, sleeps 8, Courchevel

A stunner of a chalet in a superb location, two living rooms and super spa facilities too

Orchidee

Chalet Orchidee is a stunning modern property in a convenient location in Courchevel 1650. The chalet is a 3-4 minute walk to the Ariondaz gondola and pistes. The property is incredibly spacious, it even has two living areas. We love the spa area which has a steam room and a hot tub too. This is a super chalet and very popular indeed, so get in there quick!

Mouthwatering food…

Your day starts with freshly brewed tea or coffee (don’t worry, real teabags are brought over from the UK) and a spread of fresh crusty baguette and jams, yoghurt, fruit and cereals on the table. The cooked breakfast menu changes every day but includes bacon, sausages, eggs, French toast, grilled tomato, succulent mushrooms, Heinz baked beans…

Once you’ve returned from your tough day on the slopes, homemade afternoon tea is served and favourites range from classic treats such as scones with cream and jam to squidgy brownies or raspberry and white chocolate cupcakes.

In the evening we let the experienced hosts use their imaginations and the fantastic fresh produce we have to create a mouthwatering 3-course menu for the week.

Unlimited wine

Unlimited red, rosé and white wines (from bottles, not boxes!) are served through dinner, (with coffee and chocolates in the comfy seats after your meal!)

Children are equally well looked after. If you wish your youngsters to have an earlier tea – all homemade, fresh and nutritious, of course – then please get in touch in advance so the message can be passed on to your host.
