INDIVIDUALS, COUPLES AND SMALL GROUPS
Whilst most of our guests come in families or groups which fill a
chalet, we have many regular guests who like to stay in a chalet,
without having to rustle up the friends to fill it.
private chalet-hotel Les Chardons is ideal for individuals, couples and
small parties (though it’s worth remembering that we also have three
chalets for just four guests and two for six). However, if you do want
to book just a room or two - even just one bed - in one of our other larger chalets, we’ll be delighted to fit you in, and a holiday meeting new
people is often just as enjoyable as a holiday shared with your old
friends. (Dare we say even more enjoyable??)
bookings can be problematic: we could end up with ten chalets, each with
a single guest, stopping us accepting the large parties which would
have filled the chalets. And it would be rather a dull holiday for the
ten lonely skiers!
Our solution is to allow anyone to book into a
selection of our larger chalets, but reserving the right to move
them to a comparable chalet if necessary (or make a full and immediate
refund if preferred). If there were not space in a similarly-priced
chalet, we would refund any difference if the alternative chalet were
cheaper, and charge the difference if it were more expensive.
have not charged the difference in the past, and guests in expensive
chalets have been most put out to find themselves sharing with people
who had paid substantially less than them. However, because a guest
booking into our cheapest chalet might also feel hard done-by being
asked to pay for a more expensive holiday, we will carry over the same
amount as this supplement to his or her next YSE holiday. So if we ask
you for an extra £100, you have the choice of cancelling with a full
refund or paying the £100 and receiving £100 off your following YSE
holiday. (Most of our guests come more than once.)
In this way,
the group which fills your chalet is happy, the big spenders you have
joined can’t complain, you do not find yourself rattling around on your
own in a big chalet, and your subsequent YSE holiday is even better
value than this year’s!
If booking into such a chalet please give us the ages of your party so we can tell interested parties who they are likely to be sharing with - though sadly we cannot guarantee compatibility! In the case of single bedrooms, we may not be able to guarantee a single room in the new chalet.
CHILDREN IN SPLIT CHALETS
On certain high season dates we accept children over five into our larger chalets when not booked by one party and this could include a chalet sleeping 10 or more. If not having children in your split chalet is a priority, you MUST tell us at the time of booking.
The dates where we accept children over 5 into split chalets are:
7 December (Les Chardons only), 14, 21 and 28 December 2014;
15 February; 22 and 29 March; 5 and 12 April 2015. Outside those dates, parties including children must book their own chalet.
We are happy to accept bookings for single people (over 18) to share rooms in split chalets. In the infrequent event of incompatibility, such as when a snorer and a light sleeper share, it is the disruptor (ie. the snorer) whom we ask to adapt, or find alternative lodgings. Please do not book to share a room if you know that you are hard to live with.
