We are delighted to have added this super four-bedroom chalet to our programme this year. It has two USPs: it is one of the very few chalets in Val d’Isère which really are ski-in, ski-out for all of us, not just free-riders and cliff-jumpers, and it has a swimming pool.

Sanville is a proper, solidly built, free-standing chalet, with four very pleasant bedrooms, three bathrooms and an excellent sitting-dining room. The windows are huge, and the spectacular views south-west up the Charvet or north-east across the slopes to the church and old village are fabulous.

The swimming pool is not the sort of plunge pool we were imagining, where you bang your tummy on the bottom and your head on the end. It measures 10m x 3.5m and is 1.45m deep. It’s a proper pool, and even skiers who think that after a day on Val d’Isère’s slopes one should not have any more energy to burn will find it difficult to resist a few quick lengths before dinner. If you’ve come home cold, leap in to warm up. If you’ve come home hot, dive in. And if it’s -20º and you’ve come home frozen, there’s an excellent sauna by the pool.

Chalet Sanville is actually on the side of the M piste. From Solaise it’s an easy ski. Our photo was taken at the very end of the season, but you can see that there was still snow right to the terrace. The chalet could not be more ski-in. And as for ski-out, you take your skis and boots from the ski room under the house, walk perhaps ten yards, click in, then glide across the M to the Olympique or Solaise rapid bubbles or, our favourite, the Bellevarde Express chairlift. Or perhaps stop off for a gourmet bite at the Étincelle restaurant a mere schuss away.

Being actually on the piste, above the lifts, means that the chalet is not right by the shops, night clubs, church or whatever. It is about a ten-minute walk across the snow from all these, but if the thought of walking for ten minutes through a beautiful valley does not float your boat, worry not: the Rogoney chairlift is the last lift to close, so you can always ski home; the free Train Bleu bus service runs consistently between 8.30am and 9.45pm, and a YSE Land Rover runs a shuttle service from the Tourist Office to the door every 20 minutes between 5.30pm and 8.00pm. For those who want to dance the night away, Chalet Sanville is not far from the Doudoune night club (and its pre-dinner den of iniquity Cocorico), where there’s a free shuttle running until at least 4am!

(Please note that the use of the swimming pool and sauna in Chalet Sanville is at your own risk and that of your party members. YSE cannot accept responsibility for any accidents/injuries that occur during the use of these facilities. Children must be supervised at all times.)
