About Barrelli Ski
Established in 1992, Barrelli Ski, owned by Steve and Emma have been running this spacious chalet apartment for 14yrs. The chalets and apartments are all nestled together in a horseshoe arrangement with views and space all around. We started with Chalet Marmotte (#726) in 1999, added Chalet Sapiniere (#3489) in 2001 and then this 6-8 person Apt. Flocon in 2003. The last in the set, 4-6 person Apt. Glacon (#439614) was added in 2008. We offer this apartment either self or fully catered and can be taken on its own or in conjunction with any of our other chalets and apartment, depending on group numbers, levels of privacy or communality required! An indoor swimming pool and spa were built in 2010 adding further appeal to this already fantastic apartment. Our two boys were born in 2005 and 2007 and learnt to ski in Champagny and Les Houches where we also own a fantastic 15 person chalet - Rocky Mountain (#3081). We have lived in various places in the UK and now love living near sandy surfing beaches in beautiful Cornwall!
Barrelli Ski purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Barrelli Ski chose Champagny-en-Vanoise
It is in a beautiful situation in a real French village - a fantastic ski resort in its own right with links to practically unlimited skiing and snowboarding. It has a fast, modern lift system and lots of affordable family and beginner passes and various lesson and ski pass options. In essence, we fell in love with Champagny because it has the best of both worlds! It has a fantastic ski area but also a natural charm and ambience which makes it different to many mass marketed ski resorts.
What makes this Apartment unique
It is in a stunning setting with beautiful views. Everyone loves looking out at the cold snowy mountains from the warm jacuzzi and swimming pool! We are a small family business with nearly 30yrs knowledge and experience, so we really feel we have finely honed our product over many years. Our top priority is providing high quality food and service at very affordable prices.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
A lovely little retreat with amazing views
Our family of five stayed for a sunny and wonderful self catering skiing trip over the half term. We were welcomed by Josh and team upon arrival and were very impressed by the hands on approach: helping us to get our bearings, ski hire and lessons and passes. Nothing is too much trouble. The view from the patio windows were second to none. You can cook anything in the chalet, it has a huge table and chairs, has room enough for 8 (it does sleep 8 although it would be a squeeze to be fair if you wanted to relax together - but I guess that's what the bars are for in the village) and has two toilets and showers. It is a small walk (uphill) to the ski hire shops and then an elevator to the bottom of the main lifts to the slopes. This is no problem at all as the village is picture postcard perfect and is a pleasure to do. The skiing is top class along with some of the best views in the world. The pool room has all of the modern facilities, including a sumptuous hot tub and wonderful sauna. The games room is also very good too. We will be back!

Lovely apartment close to the slopes!
We had an amazing first ski holiday with friends at apartment Flocon! The apartment is lovely and cozy, with a swimming pool and sauna available for use. The views from the living area are amazing! The location is close to the ski lift as well as some nice bars/restaurants. The staff were so friendly and helpful - no question was too much. The food was great and they catered amazingly well for a few restricted diets. We hope to be back!!
Excellent séjour appartement Flocon
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à l'appartement Flocon, avec nos filles de 9 et 12 ans. Le logement est propre et bien aménagé: il y a tout le nécessaire pour faire la cuisine; vous pouvez également choisir la formule avec les repas cuisinés sur place pour vous.
La piscine est partagée mais nous y étions seuls pratiquement tout le temps. Elle est au sous sol, accessible par l'extérieur, juste quelque metres de l'apartement. Bien au chaud dans l'eau, vous aurez une belle vue sur les montagnes par les baies vitrées.
L'accès aux pistes est simple, juste une petite marche le long d'un rousseau (5 min).
Le point le plus apprécié est la disponibilité et l'aimabilité du personnel. Ils sont presents tout en restant discrets et sont extrémement serviables.
N'hésitez plus - c'est l'endroit idéal pour passer du temps en famille ou avec des amis!
Picture Perfect Memorable Stay!
Me and my family have stayed at apartment Flocon in Champagny 4 times now and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the French Alps.
The resort is situated in the most beautiful little French village and apartment Flocon is a typical French, cosy apartment with the most amazing picture perfect views of the mountains directly in front, in Courcheval.
Flocon was always tremendously clean and tidy with the beds made and bathrooms and living area cleaned everyday by the friendly staff working there. It is fully kitted out with everything you need for a relaxed comforting stay and the staff could not do enough to help during our stay.
We spent a week here for the last 4 years catered and the food was to die for. Three course meals everyday except the staff day off, with a cooked breakfast in the morning before you go off skiing. Coming off the mountains everyday to a freshly baked cake, french bread and teas & coffee all prepared for us was a treat also!
The swimming pool downstairs and sauna in the games room a stones throw away was a lovely way to chill out after a hard days skiing on the mountains.
The ski shop and lift up to the mountains is only a short walk away.
Overall apartment Flocon and the whole resort of Barrelli Ski is beautiful and a lovely stay and we didn't want to leave! Very recommended and we hope to get back again next year!
I rented this apartment with my husband and 3 large grown up children and we found it spacious enough for all of us. It was always warm and it was great having 2 shower rooms. The on-site swimming pool and Jacuzzi are a fantastic asset to the chalet and although they are shared with the other 3 chalets, most evenings, after skiing we had them to ourselves. It is a 10 minute walk to the lifts but once up on the slopes the skiing is good for all standards and you can ski all of La Plagne and over to Les Arcs.
Other Activities: Snowboarding
Ski: You can store your equipment in the ski hire shop at the foot of the lift, which is only a short walk from the apartment. Not having to walk far in your clumpy ski boots at the end of the day is a real bonus. The shops bars and restaurants are also only a short stroll, so following your arrival at the apartment you will not need a vehicle in the resort again until the day you leave.
This self catering apartment can be booked on its own or can be booked as extra accommodation for Chalets Marmotte and Sapiniere if your group outgrows either of those two chalets.
