Chalet Le Dragon is nestled on the mountain side in the beautiful town of La Chapelle d’Abondance and is less than 10 minutes walk from the restaurants and apres ski bars. It stands opposite the main connecting ski lift to the Portes du Soleil area and it is the perfect choice for your ski or summer vacation offering luxury accommodation for up to 10 adults and flexible options for children.
Our aim is to ensure that your stay with us will be the ultimate friendly, comfortable and relaxed holiday possible – truly a home from home.

The Holiday Chalet Le Dragon has been constructed to a very high standard and considerable thought has been given to the design and fitting out of the holiday ski chalet. Particular time and emphasis has been put on making it cosy yet spacious enough so that you may enjoy spending your leisure time in the company of others or quietly alone.


Description of Interior

The bedrooms entice you with delightful furnishings and have been stylishly designed, with several offering awe inspiring views of the surrounding mountains. Two rooms have the added luxury of en-suite bathrooms, including spa jet showers. One room has its own private bathroom and the other two rooms offer a shared bathroom, perfect for a family’s needs.

Holiday Chalet Le Dragon offers the flexibility to accommodate individuals, couples, families and groups and some bedrooms are also spacious enough to accommodate extra beds and travel cots if required.

Sitting & Dining
The heart of the chalet is the traditional lounge which boasts a magnificent open fire, sofas to snuggle into and doors offering access onto the pretty balcony where magnificent views of the valley and surrounding mountains are presented to you like a picture postcard! There is also an office area with communal computer for free internet access or e-mail and a choice of DVD’s from the small library. A Bose i-pod docking station is also available for guests to use. For guests who like some video gaming action, we have the latest Wii with Winter Sports 2010 and Sports Resort!

Food and Wine - if staying in the winter all accommodation is half board only.
Cuisine is a very important part of your holiday. With this in mind, many traditional, hearty recipes have been specially selected to satisfy your desire for wholesome and nutritional food. This, together with a splendidly set table and attentive service, will ensure that you look forward to each meal. Remember, we are always happy to discuss specific requirements and requests for particular favourites.
Start the day with a continental breakfast of fresh fruits and yoghurts, choice of cereals (including porridge), ‘Bakers basket’ – pain au chocolat and croissants, toast with regional confitures and honey, fruit juice, fresh coffee and tea.
Lunch is usually taken up in the mountains enjoying the local fare. There are many mountain restaurants to choose from – just think, you could be skiing in France and lunching in Switzerland!
After a busy day, afternoon tea awaits you back at the Chalet. Choose from hot drinks – tea, coffee, hot chocolate, selection of cakes and biscuits (e.g. Lemon Curd Cake, Chocolate digestive slices, or Flapjacks) and fresh fruit.
Guests gather by the fire for nibbles and pre-dinner drinks at 7.00 pm (or at a time of your choice for whole chalet bookings). A delicious three course evening meal is served along with our specially chosen complimentary house wines or you can upgrade to a wine of your choice from our cellar. After dinner, coffee and mints are then served at the table or in front of the log fire. With starry moonlit mountain views from the dining room, each evening will be a true delight in the company of friends old and new.

You will have the chance to enjoy some of the excellent local restaurants on two nights of the week. A favourite with your hosts, why not try the famous "Le Fer Rouge" restaurant, practically on our door step. This ‘micro-brewery’ produces the “Red Iron” which is a red beer not too dissimilar from those drunk in the pubs of England and Ireland!

The village of La Chapelle d’Abondance offers an additional ten restaurants, "Le Chabi" being a particular favourite with stunning panoramic views over the valley and Les Dents du Midi.

One of the oldest restaurants in the valley is "Les Cornettes", dating back to 1894 and as well as offering superb home-cooked food, has a wonderful selection of French vintage wines which are specially selected to accompany your meal.

If you would like to make a reservation at any of these restaurants, please feel free to ask us.

Local Area

The Village of La Chapelle d'Abondance.

La Chapelle d’Abondance offers enough facilities and services to satisfy all the needs of the discerning traveller. There are over 10 restaurants, apres-ski bars and Pizzerias to discover and enjoy; including one of the oldest restaurants in the valley, Les Cornettes and also the infamous Fer Rouge micro-brewery and restaurant. These are all less than a 10 minute walk from the chalet.

There is a well-stocked InterMarche, Tabac and gift shops showcasing regional specialities, a delicatessen, a bakery and patisserie, currency exchange services and ATM, a tourist information, post office, a laundrette and medical facilities.

The village is part of the Portes du Soleil ski area with 650km of alpine skiing runs and 35km of Nordic trails to enjoy surrounded by forests of magnificent fir trees. The village forms the perfect base for an all year round holiday, with easy access to the lifts taking you up to the mountainside or if you prefer you can follow the path of the River Dranse as it winds its way throughout the valley.

The valley that surrounds the village is overflowing with beauty and nature and old cottages and chalets weave their way throughout the mountainside, proudly displaying their traditional, carved wooden balconies made from the wood sourced from the local forests.
