If you would like some extra help or someone to book on your behalf, we recommend contacting Kathryn Ketchen from the Travel Counsellors. Kathryn can advise and book flights for you.

Please contact Kathryn on 01896 888330 or at Kathryn.Ketchen@travelcounsellors.com

Please Note

We group our guests together depending on their flight timings. You should not have to wait any more than 2 hours for your transfer – and in most cases, it will be less.

Please let the office know if you would like to add transfers onto your booking, no later than three weeks before your holiday. To add any transfers, you will need to let us know the flight number, and flight timings.

Moutier train station is about 45-minutes from our chalets. There are direct ski trains from London St Pancras and Ashford International to Moutiers train station with the Eurostar. Richmond provides a bespoke transfer service for these direct trains and return transfers are available for £45 per person.

AVAILABLE 21 DECEMBER 2019 TO 11 APRIL 2020

The direct ski trains arrive at 05:32 and 18:27 and depart at 10:14 and 22:54 the following Saturday.

Overnight Eurostar

If you are travelling to resort on the overnight train, which arrives early Saturday morning, breakfast in the chalet is included in the cost of your transfer – to prepare you for your day skiing!

We are able to offer you storage for your luggage, changing facilities, comfy sofas, as well as tea and coffee throughout the day until your room is ready.

Our chalet teams do their best to prepare your room to be ready as soon as possible on the day of your arrival, but we cannot guarantee that it will be ready until 16:00.

If you are departing the chalet on the overnight train, leaving on Saturday evening, you can have dinner in the resort for £20, payable in resort. Alternatively, there are restaurants nearby Chalet des Neiges in Reberty Village.

Booking your Eurostar ticket

Bookings can be made at www.eurostar.co.uk

Please let the bookings team in the office know if you would like to add transfers to your booking. We will need to know your Eurostar details.

If you prefer to fly to Lyon, Grenoble or Geneva, you will need to organise your own travel from the airport to our chalet.

Alternatively, you could hire a car and drive from the airport. It is approximately 120 miles, 3 hours’ drive, from these airports to the chalet.

Driving from the UK has become an increasingly popular way of travelling to resort. Les Menuires is around 600 miles from Calais and would usually be around 9 to 10 hours of driving – depending on traffic and heavy snowfall. Driving tends to be the most cost-effective way of travelling to resort for a family or group.

There is free parking at the edge of the Reberty or Bettaix Village, within 100m of the chalets. Alternatively, there is the option of chargeable underground car parking in Reberty Village and in the centre of Les Menuires.

Child Supervision Service

Available for children who are taking part in ESF morning ski lessons, our child supervision service is designed for parents who value the freedom to ski a little further afield and not be restricted by their children’s ski school timings.  still enjoy some great time with your children later in the day.

Our team will transport your child to their morning ski school lessons each day and then collect them at the end when they go to our Chalet des Neiges in Reberty Village and be served lunch. After lunch, we run a programme of activities and fun games in and around the chalet until 14:00 when they need to be collected.

Please note that this service must be pre-booked no later than three weeks before your holiday, due to capacity limits. Contact us now to book your space.

Children’s Tea

Included in the price of your holiday

Our child-friendly menu ensures the younger skiers have all the energy they need for a week in the mountains! Children’s tea is served at 17:30 and our staff team will supervise the children so that adults can continue to enjoy relaxing in the lounge before ministry. If your child has special dietary requirements, please advise your Holiday Consultant before your holiday; we would recommend speaking with your chalet team when you arrive so we can go over the menu for the week.

Parents are asked to be available during Children’s Tea if they are needed, however you do not need to sit with your child for the meal.

Children’s Ministry

Included in the price of your holiday

Children can enjoy their own time of ministry separate from the adults at 18:30 for five evenings where we aim to lovingly disciple them as they continue to learn about God and how they can apply the Bible to their everyday lives. This is a fantastic opportunity for your children to grow and build their confidence with Jesus, the Bible and each other, in a safe and friendly environment with Christian leaders.

Following this ministry session, during the main evening meal, our team will then supervise as the children watch a movie in a separate lounge area until dinner finishes at approximatley 20:45.

Non-Skier Activities

There are so many activities to enjoy during your Richmond holiday other than skiing and snowboarding!

In the chalets…

Each of our chalets has two saunas and two wonderful outside hot tubs, which look out onto the Alps and can be used throughout the day. Additionally, our comfortable lounges, where complimentary tea and coffee is available throughout the day, offer great spaces to relax, read a book, and enjoy the ambience of being in the mountains.

In the local area…

A number of the chairlifts can be used by everyone, whether skiing or not. These lifts take you further up the mountain, where you can enjoy stunning views over the valley. We arrange daily lunch-meets, which are in mountain eateries accessible to skiers and non-skiers alike! So, come along and take the opportunities over the week to meet up with the skiers of the group and enjoy a mountainside pizza, crepe or soup!

There are regular buses that can take you to the local towns of Les Menuires, Saint Martin de Belleville or Val Thorens. Here, you can browse local shops, enjoy a coffee and patisserie in one of the many cafés and take in the ambience of a bustling mountain village. If you are staying at Reberty, the frequent, free bus system is particularly easy to use as the bus stop is only a couple of minutes’ walk from the chalet. From our chalet in Le Bettaix, the bus stop is 15 minutes’ walk away at a gentle pace; enjoy the stroll through the village, following the snow-topped Doron river, before starting your day’s adventure.

In the nearby town of Les Menuires and village of Bruyères, there are sports centres each with a large pool, wellness centre and indoor sporting activities. Learn more on the Les Menuires website.

If you enjoy being in the outdoors, then you can make the most of the fantastic location of the chalets and enjoy a number of picturesque walks. In particular, there is a beautiful walk very easily accessed from Chalet Elise which takes you opposite Bettaix Village and along the burbling river to the nearby village of St Martin de Belleville.

If you fancy trying out a different alpine sport, then cross-country skiing or snowshoeing is available – please see the Les Menuires local walking map for an idea of some fantastic routes to try. Jean, one of our guests, enjoyed a cross-country ski holiday whilst staying at our Reberty chalet and wrote a blog about her holiday.
