The thing that we love most about Bulle de Neige is its location. Whilst it's not strictly speaking a ski in/ski out chalet, a short stroll down the hill leads you to the edge of the piste, where you can click into your skis for an easy ski down to the bottom of the Plantrey chairlift. This immediately gives you home advantage as you avoid the main lift hub at La Croisette and provides swift, direct access up the hill, especially good if you're looking to ski over to Méribel and the rest of the Three Valleys. Alternatively, you can make use of our daily shuttle service and be whisked off to start your skiing from wherever you choose in resort.
Back at Chalet Bulle de Neige, a warm welcome awaits from your Scott Dunn team providing our renowned Original service at this cosy, freestanding chalet. The chalet can sleep a maximum of eight people but we feel that it is most comfortable for six. There are two double bedrooms located on the ground floor of the chalet, a twin room on the first floor, with the master bedroom nestling under the eaves on the top floor. There is an additional single bedroom suitable for one child or a nanny.
The pretty open plan living room is located on the first floor with an open log fire as its centerpiece. French doors lead from the dining area onto the balcony, where you will find an outdoor tub - a welcome relief for any stiff muscles.
In our opinion this chalet has it all, 'chocolate box' style, excellent service, great location and bucket loads of charm.
This classic chalet has comfortable living accommodation with four double bedrooms, with a TV in each room. Two of these bedrooms are en-suite, the other two have separate bathroom facilities. There is a further single bedroom, which can be made up if necessary.
A cosy double room on the ground floor with access to hamman/shower room. Separate WC.
A lovely double room with its own separate bathroom with bath, handheld shower and WC.
This bedroom can be set up as either a double or a twin, but do note that the beds are very close together when set up as a twin. There is an en-suite bathroom, with bath, handheld shower and WC.
The master bedroom is more like a penthouse suite, with its impressive spacious layout, own sitting room and office area, plus two separate balconies. The master has an en-suite bathroom with shower and WC.
A small single room with built-in single bed, suitable for one child or a nanny.
Scott Dunn pioneered skiing vacations with childcare, allowing parents the freedom to ski whilst their children are expertly looked after by a qualified private nanny. Our handpicked childcare team are qualified professionals, whose enthusiasm and nurturing abilities are in abundance, so much so that both parents and children often ask to take them home. In our Courchevel chalets, our private nannies look after children from as young as four months, making sure the entire family has a relaxed, fun and memorable vacation. They organize age appropriate activities and can take the older ones to and from ski school, allowing you to spend all day on the slopes. A nutritious lunch is served each day, as well as healthy snacks, with any dietary requirements taken into account and your child’s routine will be strictly adhered to. We can also provide a wide range of equipment for babies and toddlers on request, including nappies and wipes, usually free of charge. And if you’d like to go out in the evening, we can provide babysitting.
All our Scott Dunn nannies are fully qualified (CACHE trained or similar) and are carefully selected for their natural ability with children and their nurturing and fun approach. We provide rigorous pre-season training which includes a paediatric first aid course, water safety and spending time with our chefs learning how to prepare nutritious snacks and lunches. Available for five days a week, they ensure your children enjoy a range of activities, whilst adhering to their home routines. They can also take children to, and collect from ski school each day.
Babysitting can be arranged in the evenings and is chargeable by the hour (€20 for the first hour, then €10 per hour until midnight, and €20 per hour thereafter).
Chalet Bulle de Neige has an outdoor hot tub, located on the balcony accessed via french doors from the living area. A hamman/shower room is located on the ground floor.
The ski room has separate access from the street and a covered walkway brings you directly into the entrance hall of the chalet.
Equipment available in the chalet includes a TV with UK channels, Blue-ray player and Apple TV in the lounge while the bedrooms all have TVs.
Parking is on street outside the chalet.
Courchevel has a reputation as a place for rock stars and royalty but make no mistake, it is one of the world’s premier ski resorts with good reason. The skiing has breadth and depth that is unequalled. The extent of the Three Valleys combined with perfectly groomed runs, vertiginous off-piste couloirs, gentle runs at village level and much admired tree skiing mean Courchevel has lots for skiers of all standards.
If skiing is just a sideshow for you, the boutiques and art galleries will keep you occupied until it is lunchtime at one of Courchevel’s many fine restaurants. Most renowned eateries including Cap Horn, Chalet de Pierres, Bel Air and Soucoupe are accessible by road or by gondola.
Apart from skiing, the village has plenty to offer. We recommend a flight from the famous altiport or a cookery course with Michel Rochedy, the Michelin starred chef at Le Chabichou. The toboggan run to 1550 is another favorite. There is a farmers’ market on Wednesdays and the Forum is home to an Olympic ice rink, bowling alley, climbing wall and small gym. Paragliding, horse drawn carriage rides, forest walks, show-shoeing, cross-country skiing, ice karting and hot-air balloon rides are also possible.
Courchevel hosts special events including the International Pyrotechnic Festival, the most impressive fireworks display you will ever see, and ski-jumping competitions at the Olympic ski jump in Le Praz.
Our revered chalet service is the foundation of Scott Dunn upon which our reputation as the benchmark for top quality chalet vacations has been built. Your chef and host will greet you on arrival, provide delicious, carefully prepared meals to your and your children’s tastes, keep your glasses topped up and will do everything to ensure that your stay is thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing.

He/she will design a menu to suit your tastes and dietary requirements and will deliver beautifully presented, balanced and varied dishes prepared with the best ingredients. Chefs are given specific training to ensure children's food is imaginative, healthy and well received.
Our friendly chalet hosts are hospitality professionals, carefully selected for their service skills and charm and are trained to exacting standards. From bringing you tea in bed in the morning, to entertaining your children and serving you canapés and Champagne, their role is to ensure your chalet is delightful and welcoming home from home.
Your Chalet Manager will be an experienced hospitality professional who will take responsibility for ensuring that your skiing vacation meets and exceeds your expectations. They will arrange transfers, lift passes, ski guiding and tuition, advise you on where to ski, where to have lunch and where not to and address any problems that come up.
Our trained drivers offer a prompt and pleasant service delivering you to and from the slopes each day to start your skiing in style.

Location & Directions
Courchevel 1850, France - Sleeps 6+2
Chalet Bulle de Neige has a convenient location in Courchevel 1850, close to both the Plantrey chairlift and the main lift hub at the Croisette.
When to go
Courchevel offers a great balance of high and medium altitude and predominantly north-facing slopes to offer excellent skiing throughout the winter. In December, huge capacity for artificial snowmaking and the connection to the Val Thorens valley make good skiing probable. Courchevel really comes into its own from January to March, typically seeing regular snowfalls. When it gets really cold, runs to the lower villages are bearable and come spring time, north-facing pitches hold up well.
