Fancy Skiing Christmas in Chamonix?
Relax and celebrate this year, staying catered in our Chamonix ski chalet directly on the ski piste!

Christmas is a very special time of year for most people.

Nothing quite beats the joy of waking up excited on Christmas morning, having a scrumptious filling breakfast, and then being able to head out skiing - straight from the door...

Even on Christmas Day, the ski pistes are all open and are usually very quiet as the French tend to celebrate on Christmas Eve.  There is such a special joyful feeling being able to ski on Christmas Day!

Later on, you'll enjoy a fully prepared seven-course Christmas dinner which includes traditional Roast Turkey and all the trimmings: Christmas crackers, Christmas pudding, homemade mince pies... In short, all the elements that make Christmas festive!

We make chalet Maison Jaune a special place to spend Christmas week:
- We have a 6-foot tall real pine Christmas tree, all sparkling with fairy lights, baubles and other decorations...
- The mantlepiece over the open log fire has decorations and candles on it...
- The shutters on the house have lush green and red decorations...
- and, of course, a highlight of Christmas is the sumptuous seven-course Turkey dinner...


 Enjoy Champagne and canapes before dinner  6-foot tall Christmas tree decorated with fairy lights and baubles  Christmas decorations to set the mood for Noel  Naturally growing Christmas trees covered in snow...
