We look after children from as young as four months, making sure the entire family has a relaxed, fun and memorable vacation. Our team 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.

Val d’Isère is a mecca for downhill skiing for good reason. It has enough to keep skiers of all standards challenged and entertained for a lifetime, let alone a week. The off piste potential is limitless and the snow record enviable.
Val d'Isère has plenty to offer less enthusiastic skiers too. The Center Aquasportif has fantastic facilities including two swimming pools, climbing wall, multi activity sports hall, fitness suite, gym, squash courts and a Wellness area with sauna, steam bath, spa, cold baths and hydro-massage.
Designated walking trails are a great way of appreciating the scenery and there is an ice rink, husky riding, parapenting, skidooing, cross country skiing and much more.
There is a wealth of quality restaurants in the village and on the mountain (many of which are accessible to non skiers). The shops and galleries offer some great shopping (both the window and the real varieties).
Chalet Papillon comes with our renowned chalet service. Our team pride themselves on ensuring that service is seamless and anticipating your every need. Your private chef will serve mouth-watering dishes from a menu tailored to your tastes. Your host will manage your whole vacation, from restaurant bookings to ensuring a smart 4 wheel drive vehicle is ready to take you skiing and keeping your glass topped up with a carefully chosen wine or a perfectly mixed gin & tonic.
Breakfast and afternoon tea is served daily with pre-dinner champagne and spirits followed by gourmet dinners on six nights with wine. Our driver service offers a fleet of vehicles to whisk you to and from the slopes.
Above all, our chalet service is personal and we will do everything we can to make your stay perfect.
Our friendly chalet hosts are 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.

Location & Directions
Val d`Isère, France - Sleeps 8+2
Chalet Papillon is a two minute walk to the Bellevarde Express lift and close to the center of Val d'Isere. Geneva 170km, Chambery 135km, Lyon 234km.
When to go
Val d’Isère boasts one of the longest ski seasons in the world because, unlike other resorts above 1800m, 80% of the skiing happens above 2000 meters. As a result, early and late season offer reliable great conditions. Being high, it is cold though and we think March and April are the best times to visit Val.
