Chalet Caribou - Montchavin, La Plagne (Sleeps 12)

Chalet Caribou - Montchavin, La Plagne (Sleeps 12)



Chalet Caribou is modern in style, layout and design to effectively blend in with the village's look and feel of the resort. Like its sister chalets Lievre Blanc and Hermine, it offers stunning, continuous views across Montchavin, the Tarentaise Valley and Mont Blanc.

The main difference with Chalet Caribou is its large terrace making it an ideal space to relax on with a pre-dinner drink after a day’s skiing before heading inside the cosy living area for your 4-course dinner: you can actually almost ski-in onto the terrace: it is that close to the piste!

Caribou offers 5 modern ensuite twin or double bedrooms and sleeps up to 12 guests. The 'family' room on the first floor contains a twin/double bed and bunk bed which is separated into two semi-private sleeping areas by the large bathroom. It is not only ideal for familys and young adults but also a cost-effective solution for big adults who want to stay in a luxury chalet but need to stick to a budget.

Caribou also benefits from a private roof top 7-man hot tub to relax and unwind in with extra towels included, just like Chalet Lievre Blanc.

The open-plan living area features a large open fire which can be closed with a glass door if children are staying. There are two TVs (1 in the living area and 1 on the top floor 'den' area so kids can watch their favourite programmes while you can relax and watch a film after dinner.

With the tele-cabin to Les Coches and Evolution 2 Ski school and equipment hire shop less than a minute's walk away, Caribou is perfectly placed to explore the Paradiski domain (La Plagne and Les Arcs) with minimal fuss.

Caribou suits skiers and boarders of all skill levels with green runs accessed via the tele-cabin to Les Coches which is a few metres away!

Montchavin, La Plagne

Montchavin is a pretty alpine village typical of the region and it's central street is a mere couple of minutes' walk away where you can browse the souvenir shops, eat at the local patisserie or its many restaurants, sip a drink or three at one of the late night bars and even watcha movie at the cinema. You can also enjoy the spa or swimming pool complex which is situated just a few hundred metres from the chalet.

The local slopes are tree-lined and has proved to be an exhilarating place to be when there is a white out!  As you go higher, you can access the slopes of Belle Plagne, Bellecote Glacier and Roche de Mio where you will find slopes to suit all levels.

  • "Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay last week. We absolutely loved the chalet, great location! Also wanted to mention how incredible Rosie and Jake were, the food was outstanding and both were brilliant with our son Arlo. We enjoyed it so much that we are thinking about coming back in Feb / March." (Ali Bovis, Caribou, Dec 2019)
  • “I can tell you on behalf of the group that we had an excellent stay and were extremely well looked after by Cat and Clive. They were very attentive to our needs and nothing was too much trouble. The chalets are perfectly positioned for the skiing and village, plus very well appointed. We have had a boys January week in Montchavin every year for the last 10+ and will no doubt be returning in 2021. I will most certainly contact you in the autumn to discuss the next trip.” (Martyn Pacey, Hermine, Jan 2020)
  • “We had a fantastic time. Really couldn’t have asked for better. Pat and Pete were fantastic hosts, and really looked after our every need. They were great to have around; they provided a wealth of knowledge on the area and where to ski and were only too happy to answer our million questions pertaining to every other aspect of skiing in Montchavin. The food was of a great standard, and we honestly enjoyed (aka loved) every meal. The chalet was really nice and clean. This experience was certainly one of our best ski trips ever.” (Tessa Kershaw, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • Thank you for allowing us to share your wonderful chalet. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Montchavin, and in your apartment with Pete and Pat. Pete and Pat were awesome, and the food was superb. We had a great time, and will spread the word this side. (Chris Cooke, Lievre Blanc, Jan 2020)
  • We had the most amazing week at Christmas this year. The chalet was great, the other guests were brilliant company, the skiing was awesome, the food was fabulous and Pete and Pat were the perfect hosts. As far as ski holidays go, we don't know how it could get any better! (Kevin Smith, Lievre Blanc, Dec 19)
