Ski Chalet & Winter Accommodation in the French Alps
Available from December until mid-April, Chalet Khumbu, is your veritable home from home in the picturesque hamlet of La Danchere, at the same time as being a gateway to all the winter activities offered by Les Deux Alpes, Alpe d’Huez, La Grave, and The Ecrins National Parc. You will soon be charmed by the gentle stillness and beauty that is offered by this unique location where the road ends and the freedom of nature’s wilderness begins. With easy access from Grenoble, Lyon and Geneva, Chalet Khumbu provides luxurious, spacious, self-catered accommodation for one of your best skiing holidays ever.
The Piece de Resistance of Chalet Khumbu is the spacious and convivial living room for relaxing together in the sofa and chairs around the stone fireplace and sharing meals around the large wooden dining tables. The views are also spectacular with windows looking out onto the surrounding mountains on all three sides. Moreover, preparing food could not be easier, in the large, fully equipped, professional kitchen.
When you need to find your own space, you will be able to withdraw to the comfort of your bedroom, enjoy a relaxing shower or bath and be assured of a good night sleep. Chalet Khumbu has 5 bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, each with their own character, sleeping up to 16 people. Whichever side of the house you are, you will awaken to the quiet and stillness of the hamlet and stunning views of snow covered mountains.
Situated in the hamlet of La Danchere, a beautiful Alpine village, we are far from it all and close to everything.
Skiing from Chalet Khumbu allows you to take advantage of 3 amazing ski areas including Les 2 Alpes, Alpe d’Huez and La Grave, without the noise and commotion of staying in any one of the big French ski resorts. There is ample parking at the Lodge and the ski lifts and the roads are cleared of snow first thing each day ( 7.00am) and again in the evening (5.00pm) when there is fresh snow.
Most of our clients choose to take the telecabine from Venosc, an 8 minute drive from the Lodge, taking you directly up to Les 2 Alpes. We also have a special arrangement at Go Sport Montagne, with a 20% discount and an invitation to leave your ski equipment overnight, to be dry and ready for the next day. Or you may prefer to do something different and try snow-shoeing to Lauvitel Lake, ski touring in the Belledonne or the cross-country skiing at Ornon.
For your provisions, Bourg d’Oisans is 10 minutes from the Lodge with all the shops and facilities of a small French town, including a large, international Casino supermarket, restaurants, bars, bakers, butchers, pharmacy etc. In addition, Venosc has a small epicierie and it is always possible to pick up extra provisions on the way back down from Les 2 Alpes.
