We pride ourselves on being a child friendly chalet operator and many of the families who stay with us come back year after year! Raising a young family in the Alps we know what is needed to make your holiday a success and that happy children make happy parents!
All chalets are children friendly – Passon has a separate games room with table football and xbox as well as a selection of books and board games, satellite TV, DVD.
We are able to provide children’s cots (please bring your own bedding), high chairs, child gates, as well as car booster seats. We can also arrange for nappies and formula milk to be bought in advance too.
We also rent out for a small charge toddler and young children’s ski clothing.
Four of the five different ski areas in Chamonix are suitable for intermediates and one of the nicest beginner areas is Les Chosolets next to Les Grands Montets in Argentiere. Chalet Passon, Chalet Ibex and Chalet Chosalets are right next to these slopes so ideal for beginners and children. La Vormaine is a larger beginners area which is a 5 min drive up the valley next to Le Tour.
Child Care Services
Babies/Children aged 3 months to 3 years
We can help organise you a babysitter for evenings out as well as a day time nanny/babysitting service for an extra charge.
Children Aged 3 to 12 years
We have the Panda Club on our doorstep – a 2 min drive from the chalets which provides excellent all day or half day ski school facilities. All the instructors speak English and there are generally a large percentage of English speaking children. They have a fun play park, indoor play area, one lift tow as well as Les Chosalets nursery slopes nearby – right next to three of our chalets. As an indication, 5 full days with skiing lessons and lunch costs about £220.
For kids of all ages (including infants), we have a list of Tourist Office-approved and regulated nannies and babysitters.
Chef can either offer that nights menu or will cook cuisine which appeals to children; spaghetti, home-made pizza, crispy chicken fillets with fried potatoes for example. These are all freshly prepared and served with greens. We will look forward to speaking with mum on the phone and receiving the hit list!
