Family Chalet

Family Chalet

A family chalet is rarely presented as good as a family ski holiday at luxury Chalet Prarion, one of the best family chalets in the Alps with its own inhouse nanny / children's entertainer (plus three other staff), a Games / Play Room, cinema projection, and a sunken luxury hot tub.

Its outstanding family friendly ski services, facilities and ski in ski out slope side location is the probably the best in the Chamonix Valley and no other ski in ski out family chalet comes close to offering such a great family ski holiday service. For more information on why we are number 1, please check out our family ski service listing below and compare us to other 'family friendly ski' operators who we believe won't come close to our offering and value for money.

Family Friendly Ski

One of the many great family facilities at Chalet Prarion, is that it is sit uated right next to the blue Aillouds piste and is just a short ski down to the Prarion Gondola and the excellent family friendly ESF Ski School.

The resort itself is ideal for family ski holidays with a great snow garden, a dedicated nursery slope (including a magic carpet travelator and adapted chair lift for beginners and children), and some great blues and reds to keep all the family happy (see our family ski resort page for more information).

A Great Family Chalet

The philosophy at Chalet Prarion is that great family ski holidays start with a great family chalet, in a great ski location, ensuring the chalet has something for everyone, not forgetting busy mums and dads:

Games Room: We believe a great family chalet should of course have a good sized Games Room for ‘playtime’ and relaxation after a great days skiing. At Chalet Prarion there is a full sized pool table, a Wii console and games for all ages, Bose iPod docking system, home cinema entertainment system (50” Plasma TV Screen), and a selection of great DVD’s and Games for all ages. For young children and families who opt for the in-house nanny service, there is also a kitchen and baby changing facility adjoining the Games Room.

Cinema Projection: For the family to all enjoy a night at the movies,  the chalet benefits from high definition cinema projection with a great Bose / Yamaha system for a true cinema experience!

Sunken Hot Tub: Parents are always the unsung heroes of great families and not only will the professional chef ensure they have a gastronomic delight in the evenings, the large luxury hydro therapy hot tub will ensure family and friends can relax prior to dinner (or after) and enjoy a glass of wine in a great mix of soothing jets. And with children’s entertainment 4.30pm to 6.30pm, you can always opt for an optional massage (charges apply) or a deeply satifying uninterrupted hydro therapy hot tub.

Large Garden: The large south facing garden, next to the piste is ideal for playtime in the snow and we provide sledges and toys for the children (and parents) enjoyment.

Family Focused Ski Staff

Our great service starts with our staff and the price includes a professional chef, chalet host, on call driver, and a children’s entertainer.

Children’s Entertainer: Our children’s entertainer will assist as required with preparing the children for crèche or ski school and can provide a drop-off and collection service between 8:00am and 10:00am and 2:30pm and 4:30pm. Between 4.30pm and 6.30pm we provide children’s entertainment either in the Games Room or the chalet garden. An optional nanny / childcare service outside of the children entertainment period (charges apply) can be arranged at preferenial rates.

On Call Drive: We provide an on call driver and mini-bus service anywhere in the Chamonix Valley between 8:00am and 10:00am and 2:30pm and 7pm (road and weather conditions permitting). 

Professional Chef: For the children we can provide a separate children’s menu from 6pm onwards*. All menus are compiled using only high quality ingredients (fresh whenever possible) and are always nutritional and healthy.

Chalet Host: Is always on hand before and after skiing to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and memorable stay at Chalet Prarion.

Please note that the ski school and crèche drop-off and collection service does not include superviion back at the chalet unless otherwise prearranged (as this is a chargeavble service).

Childcare - Under 3’s: Whether you bring your own nanny or use our in house services you will be safe in the knowledge that you can ski back to the chalet whenever you please to see your little ones. Or perhaps take a shorter skiing day and enjoy the children playing in the south facing garden.

Childcare - 3 to 5’s: The local ESF ski school offers excellent facilities for 3 to 5 year olds to learn to ski in the snow garden. Crèche is available, at the Garderie des Chavants . For children ready for the ski slopes ESF offer group lessons or private tuition with their very patient English speaking instructors.

Lunchtime Option (charges apply): Being right on the piste, we can provide ski in ski out lunches for the children, including a collection service where necessary, and a ski school drop-off after lunch if required. Alternative you can combine the children's lunchtime option with the afternoon childcare supervision service and enjoy free time to explore some of Chamonix’s great skiing.
