Chalet Le Dragon is a 5 bedroom luxury catered ski chalet nestled on the mountain side in the beautiful village of La Chapelle d’Abondance and is less than 10 minutes walk from the many restaurants and apres ski bars. This luxury catered ski chalet stands opposite a main connecting ski lift to the Portes du Soleil ski area and it is the perfect choice for your ski or summer vacation offering luxury accommodation for up to 10 adults.

Our aim is to ensure that your stay with us will be the ultimate friendly, comfortable, flexible and relaxed holiday possible – truly a home from home in our luxury catered ski chalet. Chalet Le Dragon has been constructed to a very high standard and considerable thought has been given to the design and fitting out of the luxury ski chalet. Particular time and emphasis has been put on making it cosy yet spacious enough so that you may enjoy spending your leisure time in the company of others or quietly alone.

The heart of the chalet is the traditional large open-plan lounge which boasts a magnificent open fire, 42 inch surround sound tv, sofas to snuggle into and doors offering access onto the pretty balcony where magnificent views of the valley and surrounding mountains are presented to you like a picture postcard! Fast, free wifi, a choice of DVD’s from the small library. A SONOS musc streaming and a Amaxon firestick.

As expected from a luxury catered ski chalet, the 5 large bedrooms entice you with delightful furnishings and have been stylishly designed, with several offering awe inspiring views of the surrounding mountains. Two rooms have the added luxury of en-suite bathrooms, including spa jet showers. One room has its own private bathroom and the other two rooms offer a shared bathroom – just perfect for a family’s needs. Our ski chalet offers the flexibility to accommodate up to 10 individuals, couples, families and groups and some bedrooms are also spacious enough to accommodate extra beds and travel cots if required.

A completely private hot tub is located in the old wood store, which offers outstanding views of the surrounding mountains. We know that dry boots are important each morning so there is the latest heated boot rack for your comfort.

There are over 10 restaurants, apres-ski bars and Pizzerias to discover and enjoy; including one of the oldest restaurants in the valley, Les Cornettes and also the infamous Fer Rouge micro-brewery and restaurant. These are all less than a 10 minute walk from the chalet.

Portes du Soleil ski area:
With claims to being the largest lift-linked ski area anywhere in the world, the huge Portes du Soleil area offers a seemingly endless expanse of runs and no less than 12 individual resorts to explore. The skiing is not only expansive, but also includes high altitude skiing in wide open snow-bowls above 2,000m, so whenever you travel, you are assured plenty of snow. There are also plenty of picturesque tree-lined runs down to the many villages which combine to make up the area.

From the contemporary architecture of Avoriaz, to the chocolate-box charm of Chatel, the area offers variety to suit all tastes, and there are wonderfully long, leisurely ski days to be enjoyed, taking a circular route around the system, in either direction, taking in Morgins or Champéry in Switzerland before crossing back into France. Easily accessible Avoriaz, is also a huge snowboarding favourite, with a half-pipe and four excellent boarder-parks.

Cret Beni ski area (height of top lift 1536m)
Skiing in the shadow of the impressive Mont de Grange (2432m) the Cret Beni ski area is ideal for families and for those in their first or second season of skiing or boarding. The pistes are north facing so ensure great snow conditions for skiing and boarding. There are also several mountain restaurants offering local cuisine.

Braitaz ski area (height of top lift 1792m)
Take the cable car opposite the Chalet to join this impressive South facing ski area (one of our favourite routes and ski areas). Not only can you ski to Torgon in Switzerland but you can also make your way towards the Super Chatel domain the vast Portes du Soleil ski area.

Summer in La Chapelle d'Abondance
The summer in the Abondance Valley area of the French Alps is stunning and is perfect for your summer holidays. The wonderful weather, magnificent views, walks from the chalet and for the more energetic, mountain biking, white water rafting and climbing are essential summer experiences, with most of the major chairlifts open during the summer to take hikers, sightseers and bikers to the various peaks.

Our alpine chalet is also a great place to visit with families too. There are many family friendly activities just minutes from the chalet, including Abracadabra (a high climbing rope adventure in the trees), Bob-Luge, free tennis, Devil Kart and roller blading, or just messing about by the river with a bucket and spade at the many riverside picnic areas. If you dare, try “Fantasticable” — a 2.5km hair raising zip wire across the valley at around 100 km per hour!!

Not only this, but we are just 30 minutes away from Lake Geneva and all the lake-side activities it offers, including thermal spas, tropical water parks, châteaux and medieval towns, vineyards, beaches, sailing and other water related sports.
