Property Description

A superb six bedroom six bath residence, with generously proportioned living and entertaining zones. Private south facing balconies and decking afford magnificent mountain views across the Tarentaise valley, and the property is conveniently situated with easy access to all commercial and social amenities just a short drive away. The extensively landscaped garden provides both privacy and breathtaking mountain views, with creative pockets of lawns, mature trees, shrubs, flowers, and a secluded spa area.

The traditional hamlet of Villarivon attracts day long sunshine, and inherently assumes a peaceful and relaxing ambience. The property style is enchanting with unique surprises at every turn - an absolute must to view.

To be completed this summer, a great opportunity to purchase a superb stand-alone large family house situated in the sought after commune of Les Chapelles, offering tasteful design and spacious accommodation over three floors with the added value of a basement comprising a laundry area, sauna, wine cellar and separate studio. Meticulously renovated by the current owners with no expense spared with ingenious touches of artistic taste and flair. The proportions of both bedrooms and living areas is both generous and extremely liveable. Bedrooms and bathrooms are thoughtfully spaced over the three floors allowing privacy and separation of adult and child areas. On the second floor there is a superb large cinema room with 12 cinema seats - and in the open living areas there is a clear separation for children and adult television zones.

A great feature of this property is the short 12 minute drive to access La Plagne, one of the best and largest ski resorts in France, coupled with Les Arcs forming a massive ski domain covering 425 kilometres of Paradiski pistes. Below on the basement level is a magnificent vaulted ceiling games room of 45m2, presently awaiting the final owner touches of activity preferences. Adjoining there is also a very useful additional kitchen, and this opens out to the beautiful landscaped garden area. The separate studio, laundry and storage rooms are also on this level. The property is complimented by it's in-house garage, and it must be said that the attention to construction detail such as exemplary insulation levels makes this truly a cost efficient home to live in. The property benefits from electric heating throughout and a gorgeous log fire in the lounge area.

To the exterior and side of the property, there is private car parking for three vehicles with additional village parking nearby. There is an additional 60m2 vegetable garden that is classified constructible land providing future investment options for the prudent purchaser. There are also two additional parcels of non constructible terrain a short distance from the house that are part of the sale package. Carpe diem!! Sieze the day!!

Paradiski Ski Area

Paradiski is the name of the joint La Plagne, Les Arcs, ski area linked together by the Vanoise Express cable car. Opened in December 2003,the Vanoise Express is currently the world’s largest single span cable car; in fact there are two of them both capable of ferrying 200 people across the Ponthurin valley that divides the two areas. The journey and the views make for a spectacular 4-minute ride.

In total Paradiski offers a HUGE 425 km of piste. Individually, La Plagne (225 km) and Les Arcs (200km) are significant ski areas in their own right and are both made up of different villages. In La Plagne the high altitude villages are Aime 2000,Plagne Centre, Belle Plagne, Plagne Bellecote, Plagne Soleil, Plagne Villages and Plagne 1800. These are all situated between 1800m and 2100m and offer snowsure high altitude ski in ski out convenience.

Lower down the delightful villages of Montchavin, Les Coches, Montalbert and Champagny en Vanoise all offer the charm and cosy comfort of village life, with their own tree lined local slopes and easy access to the high altitude slopes of La Plagne.

In Les Arcs the high altitude villages are Arcs 1600, Arcs 1800, Arcs 2000 and, the latest development, Arcs 1950. Again these all offer a ski in ski out experience. Great cruising runs through the trees lead to the lower villages of Plan Peisey, Vallandry and Villaroger for a more traditional mountain experience.

Both La Plagne and Les Arcs offer something for everyone. Early intermediate blue and red run skiers can soon explore the area and travel around the mountain enjoying some of the good value mountain restaurants.

However with two glaciers at over 3,000m, a wealth of “between the piste” and off piste and long runs through the trees, there really is something for all levels of skier---and let’s not forget you boarders out there—both resorts offer a choice of snowparks with jumps, rails and the ,all important, music. La Plagne, Les Arcs, Paradiski—one of the world’s great ski areas.

La Plagne Ski Resort

La Plagne is one of France’s largest and most popular ski resorts. It is also extremely popular with British skiers and boarders who make up around 35% of the visitors to this great resort. With some 225 km. of piste, continual upgrading of the lift facilities and slopes for all standards of skier there is something for everybody. If this is not enough for you the amazing Vanoise Express double decker gondola link to Les Arcs opens up another 200km. of slopes.


The joint La Plagne, Les Arcs, PARADISKI ski domain is one of the world’s truly great fully linked ski areas. La Plagne is not just one resort but a collection of ski villages, 6 at high altitude and 4 further down the mountain, each with their own shops, restaurants, bars and ski schools.


At high altitude the 6 villages are; Aime La Plagne (2100m),Belle Plagne(2050m),Plagne Villages/Soleil(2050m),Plagne Bellecote(1930m),Plagne Centre(1970m) and Plagne 1800(1800m). Of these the pitched roof chalet style of Belle Plagne, Plagne Villages/Soleil and Plagne 1800 are the most attractive to British eyes. However the other three are not without their fans and offer ski in ski out convenience and some great value accommodation.


The original la Plagne, Plagne Centre, is undergoing a considerable facelift and next year work begins on the indoor shopping and restaurant areas. Lower down the mountain there are more traditional villages. Les Coches at 1450 m has been purpose built in a pleasing chalet style and recent lift improvements have transformed access to the higher slopes.


Champagny en Vanoise (1250m) and, in particular, Montchavin(1250m) and Montalbert(1350m) have retained their rustic farming charm and have a strong following amongst British clients. Between them the villages of La Plagne offer something for everyone. There are wide, cruising blue slopes for the less confident or those “hot chocolate” skiers amongst you with tough blacks and a wealth of off piste for the stronger /more adventurous skier. Boarders have not been forgotten with a variety of Terrain parks on offer.


Accommodation varies from simple, great value, ski in ski out studios and apartments to luxury new build apartments and chalets.
