A unique apartment - superb view - comfortably serving 10 people:

Apartment 13 of the chalet Les Marches in the Planchamp hameau (area) is one of the best situated and well equipped apartments in Valmorel. It is virtually on the ski-slope, experiencing a fantastic 180 degree view over the Planchamp piste and the Morel Valley facing west. - And yet the apartment is only 100 meters from the main pedestrian street of Bourg Morel with all its shops, markets, services, bars and restaurants.

- But very quiet at night !

The chalet Les Marches is only a few steps from the Planchamp piste and there is only 75 meters down the beginning of the Altispace chairlift (where you naturally would ski down to, in the morning).

The apartment is more than 80 m2 divided into 2 floors decorated in a light, but cosy scandinavian atmosphere. The main floor is reserved for social activities (i.e. no bedrooms) and include:

  • lounge / sitting room
  • dining room (10-12 people)
  • open fireplace
  • large balcony facing the Planchamp piste
  • bathroom (w. washing machine & dryer)
  • separate WC
  • american style open kitchen
  • dishwasher, microwave, espresso etc...
  • flatscreen TV, DVD player and stereo

  •     (bring your own DVD's and iPod)

    The top floor includes:

  • bathroom & wc
  • 4 bedrooms sleeping 10 people

  •     (8 single beds & 1 double bed)

    The chalet offers:

  • quiet nights
  • true doorstep skiing !!!
  • private ski cabinet

    The large 9 m2 private balcony, accessed from the lounge, gives you the opportunity of enjoying the afternoon sun, whilst being entertained by the many skiers and the activities on the piste right in front of you.

    All bedrooms have closets and drawers for your clothes and personal belongings. All beds are equipped with pillows, blankets and duvets/comforters. However you must bring your own bedlinen, covers, bath-towels and tea-towels. Alternativly you can rent bedlinen, covers, towels etc. out of Immobilier-Soleil in the center of the main pedestrian street, 11 Bourg Morel. They speak english and are very helpfull. If you prebook ahead of arrival, it will be in the appartment available for you upon arrival.

    Just besides the main entrance of Les Marches (below) you will find the annex with private cabinets for your ski's in the corner of the chalet (behind the trees on the right). You may also use a small cabinet just opposite the apartment main door.
