  • So what's it like?

    Located in the picturesque village of Plagne 1800, Residence les Chalets Edelweiss offer ski-in, ski-out access to the Paradiski area.

    The chalet-style buildings are set in a horseshoe formation, housing 83 apartments between them. There are a range of sizes to choose from, with some apartments sleeping four people, while others can sleep up to eight. No matter how big your party is, though, you’re guaranteed bright, charming and contemporary spaces with ambient lighting, sleek furnishings and open social spaces. What’s more, most even have balconies.

    If you’re planning on cooking most nights of the week, then you can fill them up with groceries from the well-stocked Spar supermarket, just 200m from the residence.

    After hours of surrounding yourself with frozen water particles, end your day immersed in the soothing waters of the indoor heated swimming pool. If you want to warm up further, then have a session in the sauna or steam room.

    If you’re more of a social bunny, then settle down in one of the Chesterfield-style sofas in the communal lounge and catch up with friends and family before getting competitive with a game of pool.

    Families

    Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club is based in the building next door to the Chalet Les Cimes Blanches, a 3-minute walk from the Residence les Chalets Edelweiss.

    Pepi Penguin Nursery (6 months - 4 years) is run by our UK-qualified childcare staff and held in a dedicated room equipped with games and toys. Outdoor play included (weather and parental consent permitting).

    What's included:

    • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
    • 2-course hot lunch
    • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
    • A daily routine and activities report for your child
    Activities vary daily. We'll find time for stories, singing, arts and crafts including painting and collage making, plus messy play in the sand tray and free play with age-relevant toys set out for the children to choose what they want to do.

    We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so we aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe snowy walks, a gondola ride or snow painting. And if your child is used to a sleep, we'll factor that in too.


    Beanie Bear Club (4-8 years) provides plenty of fun-filled days as our childcare staff offer a combination of care and skiing, which includes 6 x AM ski lessons, pick-up and drop-off from ski lessons, lunch and afternoon care by Crystal staff in the dedicated Beanie Bear Club room.

    What’s included:
    • Full day care from 8.30am to 5pm
    • 6 x AM ski lessons, ski school drop-offs and pick-ups*
    • Child skis, boots and helmet hire
    • 2-course hot lunch
    • Snacks and drinks throughout the day
    * Lift passes aren't included as each child's needs are different. If and when your child feels confident enough to use the lifts, you'll need to buy a lift pass locally.

    Activities vary daily – to include games, arts and crafts and storytime – and are often based around a theme.

    We're also really keen to take in some fresh mountain air each day, so we aim to have an outdoor activity at least once a day – maybe bus bingo, snowman competitions or a treasure hunt.

    Both Pepi Penguin Nursery and Beanie Bear Club operate for 6 days and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. Evening clubs are also available to book in resort for an extra charge.

    All our staff are UK-qualified, English-speaking and first-aid trained, and have had DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and reference checks. And we prioritise maintaining the correct adult:child ratios.

    Please note, all childcare is an extra charge and must be pre-booked to guarantee a place. In some instances, childcare does not extend the full length of the ski season. Please contact the sales team for additional information.

Ratings

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
