The Alexandre is a bit like the resort it's in; a great all-rounder. It's quaint and cosy with the rustic styling you'd expect yet versatile enough that larger groups will have no problem fitting in comfortably.

 

You have your own sauna in the chalet so there's no excuse for aching muscles after a day on the mountain. It's big enough to fit half of the chalet in so après-ski doesn't have to just be about afternoon tea and cake!

 

 

The large lounge/diner is the heart of the chalet. Grab a board game, a slice of cake and a drink and sink in to the deep sofas and battle it out over the huge solid coffee table. And when your host serves up your evening meal, just head over to the long, banquet style dining table to enjoy free-flowing wine and delicious regional specialities.

 

The location of the chalet within the resort is great. It's on a small side street opposite a school so it's very quiet in the evenings. The nearest lifts, shops and bars etc are only a few minutes walk, so just because it's quiet doesn't mean you're isolated.

About the resort

A great example of an all-rounder. Long hours of sunshine (when it's not snowing) and snowsure slopes certainly help, but Les Deux Alpes is all about the variety of things to do, both on and off the mountain.

 

A superb resort for families (one of our top 10), groups and all standards of skier or boarder. Beginner slopes near the resort and on the glacier make it a great place to learn whilst enjoying the glorious mountains rising up all around you. Intermediates have plenty of choice while experts should hire a guide and test their freeriding ability on the legendary off-piste runs of ominously name La Grave. 

 

 

The resort is large and well laid out with two main roads; one in, one out. Along each road you'll come across an excellent range of sports shops, gift shops, restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. The après-ski is as lively as you want it to be with over 40 bars, restaurants and nightclubs on your doorstep.

Our chalet board basis is designed for skiers and boarders. Breakfast is a fairly extensive affair with cooked and continental options every day. Your daily afternoon tea of freshly baked cakes and biscuits will be waiting for you when you come in from the slopes.

 

Evening meals are a three-course set-menu with regionally inspired dishes and free-flowing wine throughout the week, all followed by fresh coffee.

 

 

We provide evening meals on six nights a week to leave you free to head out and explore the resort on one evening. For shorter holidays over New Year 2016/17, you still have one night free to explore the resort and local cuisine.

 

 

Rooms

The Alexandre sleeps 14 to 18 people in seven ensuite bedrooms. Having a combo of twin, double and quad rooms makes it ideal for mixed groups or a few families looking for a flexible and comfortable place to stay.

Designed for confident blue and red-run skiers and snowboarders, they'll show you around the mountain on free guiding sessions, and even offer free coaching sessions to help you become a more confident skier or snowboarder.
