This luxury spacious chalet is perfect for your self catered holiday needs. It is large enough to accommodate 2 or 3 families or groups at one time - the younger ones can play snow angels or build a snow man in the secure back garden whilst the older children read in the quiet area, play on the ps2, use the WiFi or watch one of the many DVDs supplied. They could even play a board game! Parking is also easy here with a huge free car park area just outside the chalet. Settle down after a hard day on the slopes to a glass of vin chaud in front of the real fire or relax in the hot tub. English TV is supplied for those who choose to watch it and WiFi is supplied as a matter of course.

About Iain Gilroy
I live in Scotland with my wife and 2 daughters, we are a family of skiers and have been skiing in this area for almost 30 years. I am a BASI qualified Ski Instructor and Alpine Race Coach and having skied all round the world I can honestly say that Paradiski, and in particular the area around Montchavin/Les Coches, offers some of the best skiing and boarding available. Whether you are wanting to cruise the blues, or look for something a bit off the marked piste, everything you want is on your doorstep. In the summer the whole family are keen cyclists, mountain biking and road cycling. Now the girls are getting older I am enjoying "ticking off" the local Cols on our road bikes.
Iain Gilroy purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Iain Gilroy chose Bellentre
Having skied throughout the world I honestly believe that Paradiski offers some of the best skiing and boarding terrain available. Montorlin is a beautiful Alpine village full of charm yet so close to the huge Paradiski ski area. Chalet Jaune has everything that we wanted in an Alpine property and caters for our needs all year round.
What makes this Chalet unique
Chalet Jaune is a spacious, warm and comfortable holiday retreat. The private gardens and large sun terrace are hard to find features in Alpine properties.

Lovely Chalet, really worked for us.
Ideal for our group of 7 - 4 adults and 3 kids, located in the sleepy hamlet of Montorlin just below Montchavin which is perfect for either La Plagne or Les Arcs. Day starts with either a short drive or warm up walk to resort depending on the weather. Owner very responsive and helpful. Everything as it should be, very clean and well equipped. Hot Tub a definite bonus with fantastic views across the valley. So good, we have already booked to return next year!
Very pleasant chalet with everything for enjoying our stay.
We were two families with two 17 year old boys and two 15 year old girls staying over New Year 2016. The chalet was fantastic. We totally got the wow factor when we walked in. The open plan kitchen, sitting room and dining room is just perfect for 8. The bedrooms were spacious and well equipped although do be careful of the wonderful beams on the top floor as they are a bit low but make the chalet very beautiful. Having the two bathrooms and a separate loo were exactly what we needed. We ate in 5 nights and ate out in Montchavin twice. The walk to Montchavin was 15 minutes up a steep climb but very manageable even with poorly knees after the skiing but do remember a torch.
The hot tub was a complete bonus and one we enjoyed each evening under the stars.
The skiing area of Les Arcs and La Plagne are brilliant and serve every level. We went when there was very little snow and you couldn't ski down to Montchavin but the upper slopes had been groomed immaculately and we had great fun skiing every day.
Two tiny criticisms was that there was not a lot of hot water for 8 of us to shower after a hard days skiing and the dishwasher did not perform well but these are tiny notes and do not take away from a fantastic holiday which was completely made by the wonderful chalet. Liza was excellent at providing tips on where to eat, getting our ski passes and generally being very nice indeed.
Thank you to all.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Chalet Jaune, thank you very much for your kind feedback. We have realised that the hot water has a limited capacity and are planning on upgrading it to a larger capacity electric hot water system next summer, so should you visit again there will be an abundance of hot water. Also the dishwasher is being replaced at the end of January when I am back out in Montorlin as we had also noticed a decrease in performance.
Really cosy chalet
We had a lovely holiday in this lovely chalet, really spacious although needs some updating. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed and it was lovely to sit in the hot tub and look up at the mountains. We were 2 families and had plenty of space. We had a lovely holiday and would certainly consider returning.
As of the summer of 2017 we have implemented many upgrades to our chalet.
The master bedroom now has its own toilet and washhand basin.
The main upstairs bathroom has been upgraded and now boasts a large walk in shower and the main downstairs bathroom and toilet has also been fully updated.
The mezzanine area has been extended using reclaimed traditional timbers providing a feature walkway to the main bedroom.
Externally the private terrace has been fully decked in local pine creating a beautiful area for relaxing after a hard day on the mountains, whether it be summer or winter.
Pictures are available on our listing page.
We had a great holiday. the chalet was comfortable and cozy and had all the mod cons and in a lovely location. Will definately be returning.
