Think of the 3 Valleys and you think first of the world’ biggest, most exciting ski area, but then when you think of your accommodation options it’s almost all in modern, functional but fairly soulless resorts. So we’re delighted to be able to offer Chalet Louis, a hidden gem that’s located on a cobbled street in the heart of Le Praz, Courchevels most charming village. So bags of character but still with full functionality and fast, easy access to the slopes from its central location in the village; they’re just five minutes’ walk away.
Originally a traditional farmhouse, "La Ferme de Louis" the building has been meticulously converted to a charming chalet, retaining its true character. The open plan lounge has plenty of comfortable seating around the original stone fireplace leading into the dining area where there’s a large farmhouse table. The 4 bedroom chalet sleeps 8 people retaining but can accommodate an extra bed which we will be happy to organise on an individual basis.

Well what a first week for the Chalet. Perfect snow, excellent skiing and great fun and good company. We will definitely be back
We first visited Chalet Louis for Christmas 2013. We had such a great time that we decided to come back with our friends! Great hospitality, supply of great food and wine
Thank you for a great week, two fab birthday cakes and wonderful meals every night. We have all had a great week
We had a great week; the chalet was very comfortable and great location. The food was absolutely delicious and we were magically well looked after with bottles of wine magically appearing.
A very comfortable family chalet - warm and comfortably furnished. Everything was clean, food was first class. Courchevel is a great resort for a family holiday
Thanks for a great week, really enjoyed the food and your warm hospitality. Chalet in a great position for the bars and walking to the lifts

Meet your host
After working a ski season as a chalet host in Meribel, France, winter 2013/14, I chose to take 2 years out working within the hospitality industry. Having realised my true passion to be in the Alps, I am about to start my second season with Mountain Heaven. Choosing to work with Mountain Heaven again was an easy choice, from the menu and chalets, my co-workers through to worker perks made me realise that I wanted to go with this company for another season. Travelling is something I adore and being able to enjoy what I do as a job is amazing for me and being able to do it surrounded by snowy mountains makes it all the better.Im looking forward to welcoming you all to Chalet Louis.
Food & wine
To prepare you for your day on the mountain, for breakfast you can tuck into a selection of cereals, yoghurts, bread, jam, honey and porridge made to order. Daily changing hot options include freshly prepared eggs, fluffy pancakes, smoked salmon, French toast and full English. All served with Yorkshire tea, if you like it as much as we do, or a choice of herbal and fruit teas, coffee and hot chocolate.
On arrival back to your chalet afternoon tea will be ready and waiting for you with a changing range of freshly baked cakes along with a choice of hot drinks, what better way to feel truly spoilt.
Our menu is freshly prepared using seasonal ingredients to create a delicious wholesome three course evening meal, accompanied by our specially selected choice of wines, followed by freshly brewed coffee or tea.
We are always happy to provide an earlier evening meal of family favourites, just let us know their likes and dislikes and we will do the rest.
All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using local ingredients. If you have any particular dietary requirements please talk to us beforehand so we can do our best to get things just how you like it.

Our delicious wines are selected from France through the fantastic Le Verre Gourmand. A selection of red, white and rose wine has been handpicked for you to complement your meal and your taste buds. Here is the list of our fabulous wines for this season:
Rare Vineyards Blan de Blancs
This blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc gives a well-rounded refreshing wine made in the Languedoc – Roussillon. The fresh, fruity aroma leads to citrus in the mouth with light acidity making it a great wine to enjoy before dinner.
Chemin des Pins Sauvignon Blanc 2014
This wine is lip-smackingly fresh and crisp, You’ll find all the classic Sauvignon characteristics of lemon, lime and green grass, but there are hints of slightly riper fruit, too.
This is a great modern-style red blend from the South of France - full of juicy red and black fruit flavours, alongside a spot of spice and warmth. It's not too heavy, so it will work best alongside slightly lighter red meat dishes - or even poultry. The addition of 10% Cabernet Sauvignon to the Grenache and Carignan gives the wine just a bit more ooomph, while retaining its easygoing character.
Les Roches Bleues
Bright red colouring with violet glints. A complex bouquet with aromas of blackberries, spices and toffee. Nice balance in the mouth thanks to the plant flavours, and subtle tannins. The finish lingers long on the black fruit, the spices and toffee aromas
Mas du Canal Rose
For refreshing, pale, dry, yet crisply fruity rose, look no further than this wine from the south of France. It is delightfully fresh and zingy on the palate, with bright red fruits (redcurrants, raspberries) lighting things up. It is seriously thirst-quenching stuff
Note: At the beginning of each season some of the wines may be unavailable and so we may substitute for other wines of equal quality
We understand a holiday can sometimes be stressful particularly if you, or one of your family members have food allergies or special dietary requirements. We will do our best to cater for your needs however most ski resorts simply do not offer the selection of Gluten, Lactose or Dairy free products available in UK supermarkets.
In order to plan the menu and source relevant ingredients it is important that you advise us at the time of booking (or at least two weeks before you depart for your holiday).
These are the products we can get at no additional charge:
Gluten Free Flour
Gluten Free Pasta
Gluten free cakes
Pulse and grains
For additional products such as dairy free spreads, soy yogurts, gluten free cereals and meat substitutes due to the high cost of these items in the Alps we make an additional charge of £20 per person in order to source the right ingredients for you. If you have any questions or concerns, we would be more than happy to speak with you personally to ensure we can get things just right for you.
All you have to do is ask…..all our meals are freshly prepared using where ever possible local ingredients. If you have any particular dietary requirements please talk to us beforehand so we can do our best to get things just how you like it.
