We're delighted to have the 15 person Chalet Sandy in the Neilson Mountain Collection family. It's a brand new chalet that will be completed in October 2019 and finished in a traditional style with a modern feel. You can look forward to a high standard of finish and some exceptional views out over the ski area from its elevated position.

 

The best views will be reserved for the outdoor hot tub on the large balcony. Kick back after a day on the mountain with friends or family and decide where to explore the following day. As well as the hot tub, there's also a sauna and a video room is planned too, so relaxing will be pretty easy here.

 

 

You'll find the Sandy close to the main street of Les Deux Alpes on the Vallée Blanche side of the resort, just behind Neilson Chalet Hotel Le Crêt. The Diable lift and blue piste are only about 250m away, and for those with kids, the Neilson Hotel Aalborg is also close by (around 500m away) with kids' clubs for little ones aged from four months right up to 12 years old.
 
The main living/dining area will have a double height ceiling with plenty of huge wooden beams for that classic warm and cosy chalet feel. Each of the seven bedrooms will be equally as cosy with ensuite bathrooms.

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 the ominously named 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.
