Valentine, sleeps 8-9, Serre Chevalier

A traditional chalet with a hot tub in a superb location close to the Aravet gondola in Villeneuve

Valentine

Chalet Valentine is all about the location. Just 300m from the Aravet gondola and a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants close by.

The chalet is a traditional Alpine affair with wood-panneling throughout. It sleeps 8 guests in 4 rooms, one of which is a bunk room. Two of the rooms have their own en suite bathrooms and the other two share a bathroom.

Guests love the hot tub too, a super spot for a soak after a hard day exploring this incredible yet under-rated ski area.
