Welcome to Chalet Elise

Available for private hire, Chalet Elise is nestled in the charming Bettaix Village. This typically French village is very peaceful and has the gentle Doron river winding through the middle.

From the chalet, there is easy access to the fantastic ski resort of The Three Valleys; the lift is only a few minutes’ walk from the boot room and will take you to Les Menuires.

Chalet Elise has two saunas and hot tubs that are positioned on the outside balcony, as well as sun loungers where you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity looking out onto the mountains.

Don't just take our word for it!

This is the most amazing holiday we have had. We can’t thank you enough. The team were fantastic and bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. The Christian atmosphere and teaching was fantastic. We will definitely be booking with Richmond again!

Philip, January 19, Chalet Elise

The staff at Chalet Elise were a real team - they were efficient, united, friendly, supportive of each other as well as the guests, and genuinely caring, with a big dose of fun and joie de vivre. Our feeling was that this was a "golden" team, and a beautiful demonstration of what a little piece of the kingdom could be like.

Susannah, December 18, Chalet Elise

The whole team were brilliant and they were very competently led by Lydia. They all had great characters, and I think I have to say they were one of the best teams I have experienced. There was just something special about them as a team that I can't quantify in words.

The Chalet

Play Video

Our chalet is made up of two halves, connected by a large balcony on the first floor and the boot room on the ground floor.

The fourteen guest bedrooms are spread over the three floors, with the spacious kitchen/dining room and main lounge on the first floor and a second lounge and boot room on the ground floor. The balcony is home to the chalet’s two hot tubs and saunas, the perfect place to relax.

The main lounge with comfy sofas around an open fireplace and full height sliding doors to access the balcony is the heart of the chalet. The space is perfect for socialising, enjoying a drink after a good day of skiing, an after-dinner game around the log fire or relaxing with a movie night on the large cinema screen. The smaller lounge on the ground floor is complete with TV and table football.

High Speed Chairlift

Take the Bettex chair lift to be in Les Menuires in minutes, ski home on a leisurely Blue run directly from Val Thorens or Les Menuires.

Stunning Chalet

Sit back and relax in one of the cosy lounges with an open fire and cup of tea in hand or soak in the hot tub after a hard day skiing. Perfect!

Great Walks

Follow the Doron river down to historic Saint Martin or venture further afield – there is more to the Three Valleys than skiing!

Accommodation

The chalet has fourteen comfortable bedrooms all with stylish ensuites. There is even a jacuzzi bath ensuite to one of the rooms!

Classic Twin rooms are on all three floors of the chalet and have two single beds.

Classic Double rooms have fixed double beds, two of these are on the ground floor and one is on the middle floor.

All of the twin and double rooms have a private en-suite shower room and are great for couples, friends or solo travellers.

On the top floor of the chalet, we have some four-bed rooms, which comprise two twin rooms and an ensuite shower room between the two. One of these rooms is slightly smaller than the other, so it is a perfect room arrangement for families or for three adults sharing.

We also have a room on the middle floor of the chalet with capacity for four and this is ideal for families with young children. This is composed of a master bedroom with a fixed double bed and a small bunk room off the side of the main room. Please note that the bunk room is best suited to under-12s. The rooms share a bathroom which hosts a Jacuzzi bath in its ensuite to help you unwind at the end of your day!

Food

There are a range of catering options including the option to do your own catering in our expansive kitchen. You may like to mix and match the options to give yourself greater flexibility during your stay.

With a wide range of shops en route to the chalet in Albertville and Moutiers, plus mountain shops for those essential extras, many guests choose to self-cater. The kitchen is well equipped with two ovens and 6-ring gas hob plus plenty of fridge space. A large chest freezer is also available on the ground floor.

Another option that some guests choose is to have pre-prepared meals delivered to the chalet. This keeps the stress of cooking to a minimum while allowing you the privacy of the chalet to yourselves.

These meal deliveries are often very flexible and can be arranged for just one night or every evening, many also provide breakfasts too.

If this is a service you might be interested in, these companies provide this service and can serve the chalet:

If you would prefer a chef to cook in your chalet, do all the shopping and know that you will have breakfast and dinner (plus even lunch!) prepared without you having to worry about it, there are some fantastic catering companies who can provide these services or link you with a chef.

The budget can vary substantially from those who want a simple meal to haute cuisine with many courses and paired wines.

Here are some options to consider if you would like a catered experience:
