Cristal 5, sleeps 11, Val d’Isere
A comfortable chalet in a phenomenal location for accessing the amazing ski area
The Cristal chalets are located in the La Daille area of Val d’Isere which is the first part of the resort as you enter from the valley. La Daille is great for ski access thanks to the choice of 3 lifts that are only 150m from the chalet. A chairlift, gondola and even a funicular provide super quick access to the amazing Espace Killy ski area. On the way home, you can ski back to within 100m from the chalet. The centre of the resort is a 25 minute walk away but the very efficient and frequent bus service stops within 100m. The journey takes no more than 5 minutes and runs until 2am.
Chalet Cristal 5 sleeps 11 in 5 en suite rooms and is on the third floor of the chalet. The open plan living and dining area is warm and welcoming thanks to the wood burning stove and the comfortable seating that surrounds it. The living room also boasts a large flat screen TV with British channels, a DVD player and Wi Fi too. The property also has a south west facing balcony.
NB. For guests looking use a ski school, you will need to get the bus into the town centre as there are no ski school meeting points in La Daille.
