Nestled in the snowy hillside, just 10 minutes from the nearest ski lift, this stunning converted barn radiates traditional character with all the pleasures of modern luxury living. The focal point of Chalet Belle Chery is undoubtedly the vaulted ceiling with open plan living / dining area and a crackling stove.
The panoramic glazing offers incredible views across the valley to the mountains beyond. Curl up in the cozy sofa around the fire, the perfect place to relax after a long day’s skiing. Or soak tired muscles in the Jacuzzi on the outdoor terrace. Kick back in the cinema room and get lost in an inspirational ski film. Or sink into the bath with a view of the mountains.

We have created a healthy and energizing vegetarian menu with our chefs to give you the fuel for a full day out on the mountain and on the mat. Combining fresh and colourful ingredients, our menu is creative but most importantly it tastes delicious!
Why vegetarian? We wanted to create a different ski chalet experience, so although we don't provide heavy indulgent dinners, you can guarantee you will feel full and satisfied. A vegetarian diet is also in line with yogic tradition and it's a great opportunity to learn about inventive ways of using vegetables to create delicious and substantial meals. We can cater for all dietary requirements including vegan and gluten free.
Granola and porridge
Fresh bread and croissants
Apple and cinnamon chia pudding
Fresh fruit platter
Eggs made to order
