"We wanted to thank you and your wonderful team for an absolutely fabulous week on the slopes. Our chalet staff at Juniper were exceptional." (Mrs S, Australia)


Chalets Juniper, Jasmine and Jacaranda are spread across the top two floors of the delightfully retro three-star Résidence le Grizny, with Juniper occupying the whole upper floor.

The building is unusually spacious and solid, having been built before Val d’Isère’s narrow valley started running out of space. And its position is really good: the village centre is four minutes’ walk away, the ski buses stop nearby, and it is possible to ski home.


Juniper has nine bedrooms, ranging from cosy to very large, six bathrooms and separate, sizeable sitting and dining rooms. Two of the cosier rooms are discounted £40 per person per week (rooms 14a & b), while the smallest of all, 14c, contains a double bed which you can book for one person, and an optional bedmate can add in at 85% of the brochure price (or 50% if no flight is required).

The bedrooms face away from the road, towards the silent forest on the slopes of Solaise. Nearly all of the bedrooms have east-facing balconies with impressive views of mountains, trees and snow, and noise is never a problem, unless it's you making it!

Juniper’s atmosphere is always fun. It tends to appeal to relaxed people, perhaps because from the outside the building looks a bit like a municipal library, or because with six bathrooms for up to eighteen people it doesn't attract the sort of guests who might be put off by those technicolour baths and basins.


But however convivial the dining and sitting rooms become, guests can escape into the quiet of their own rooms, most of which are a good size - see room dimensions opposite. There is no TV (imagine trying to get 17 or 18 people to agree on what to watch?), but there is WiFi.


  • Whole upper floor of the Grizny building, a small, private résidence run entirely by YSE.
  • Ideal for large groups, small groups, couples and singles.
  • Amazing meals around the huge table in the dining room.
  • Large, relaxed sitting room with acres of atmosphere.
  • Large bedrooms, with excellent ratio of bathrooms and separate wcs.
  • Wide sunny balconies.
  • WiFi.
  • Two bedrooms have private facilities, four share bathrooms and separate wcs with one other room, and three share one bathroom and wc (£40 discount pppw in Rooms 14a and 14b).
  • Single room with double bed for hopeful Casanovas (optional bed partner pays 85%).
  • On main road, five minutes past church, but astonishingly quiet.
  • Skiable-back-to and five minutes from lifts.
  • Buses to major lifts nearby (new Laisinant Express and all central lifts just two stops).
  • A chef and two assistants who live with other YSE staff on the ground floor.

A second person can book into Bedroom 14c, making it a double room. This room can be booked as a double whether the chalet is occupied by one group or individuals/couples.

On certain dates we may not be able to provide a flight for an extra bed, in which case we would only chanrge 50% for the extra person.
