Chalet Grande Blanchette

Hidden Alps' Grande Blanchette is a large 9 bedroom boutique catered ski chalet with hot tub and sauna just below Montalbert La Plagne (Paradiski). Ideal for big groups of family or friends, it can sleep up to 20 (or 23 if children). The chalet is ski-in (off-piste wide forest track), and just 5 minutes drive from the ski lifts in Plagne Montalbert, part of La Plagne / Paradiski, in our private chalet shuttle bus.

Lovingly restored using lots of reclaimed wood and modern designer fittings, it has bags of quirky alpine character, fantastic mountain views, and easy access to superb high altitude skiing. Paradiski is one of the highest ski resorts in Europe, 70% is above 2000m, and there are 420km of lift-linked slopes, including two lifts above 3000m.

Cuisine:

At Hidden Alps, we love real food and are passionate about serving tasty dishes that will delight our guests. After all, fantastic food (and lots of wine) is key to a great chalet holiday! Our food philosophy is very much about cooking with a conscience. Our meals feature good quality, ethically sourced ingredients where possible, including: organic or free to roam red meat; free range chicken and eggs; local cheeses; and bottled wines from small regional producers. We offer discounts for vegetarians and vegans, and can cater for gluten-free and other special diets.

Breakfast

The hearty breakfast includes fresh fruit, bread, cereals, fruit juice, muesli and a daily changing special. One day it might be fried eggs or French toast, another, porridge or scotch pancakes with blueberries and crème fraiche.

Afternoon tea
There are self-service hot drinks areas with fridge and microwave off the main sitting room and we leave a plate of home made cakes or biscuits for you to help yourselves to when you come back in the afternoon.

Dinner
Six evenings a week, there's a delicious three course dinner served with our house wine (choice of red, white or rose). We also stock a selection of excellent regional wines and Spanish cava if you want to try something different (ask to see the wine list). Following dinner, we serve coffee, tea or herbal tea in the sitting area.
