Perhaps the ultimate ski in ski out location, Chalet Jean-France is conveniently located next to the Yeti bar & restaurant and just a few minutes' walk to the pedestrianised Avoriaz resort centre in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area.
Chalet Jean-France is a real home from home, very comfortably furnished and our most popular short breaks and week ski chalet, so do book early. The chalet fuses characterful décor with contemporary style; it is a wonderful place for a ski holiday!
As with all our chalet breaks, we want you to maximise your time on the slopes. There is a bag store available from 0930 if you would like to ski on your arrival day, and we can store your bags until 5pm on your departure day.
Read More About Chalet Jean-France
Staying at Chalet Jean France will allow you the opportunity to genuinely ski to and from the door, enjoy après ski bars on the doorstep and it's just minutes away from the traffic-free resort centre, where there are shops, cafés and the brilliant Aquariaz water park. A ski school meeting point is just meters away.
You really are at the heart of everything with the chalet sitting between two Apres ski bars, one being the Folie Douce. During the evening the area around the chalet becomes calm and quiet apart from the jingling bells of the horse sleighs trotting past. The neighbouring bars close by 6.00pm daily, ensuring a relaxing evening in the chalet. Early booking is recommended to secure your dates of choice, as this chalet is in very high demand.
Chalet Jean-France has 6 good-sized ensuite bedrooms spread over two floors, each one with a shower, and two rooms have a bath to soak in too. All rooms have twin beds and all can be made up as doubles; please let us know your preference when booking.
There's a spacious open-plan kitchen-diner on the first floor plus a lounge area with a TV and DVD player, an open fireplace and a balcony boasting lovely views of the slopes and stunning sunsets. The chalet has a ski room so ski and board storage is no issue and it has boot dryers too. There is a bag store available during the day if you would like to ski on your arrival and departure day.
A snowcat resort taxi on arrival and departure in Avoriaz is included. This is a fun ride in a piste basher style vehicle, saving a 5 minute walk across snow from the Avoriaz Welcome Station (airport transfer drop off point and car park) to the chalet door, or you can take a magical horse and sleigh resort taxi (payable locally).
Chalet Jean France is a catered chalet with our Classic chalet board which consists of a continental with a cooked option breakfast, delicious afternoon tea and cake and a 3-course evening meal with wine included, all provided by your friendly SkiWeekends host who lives out. Please note our chalet staff have 2 days off a week, a Wednesday and a Saturday. On these days they will leave continental only breakfast and afternoon tea out for you, but the evening meal is not provided, which gives you an opportunity to dine out in the resort, where there are plenty of lovely local restaurants, not to mention an excellent choice of bars and shops.
