About Barrelli Ski
Established in 1992, Barrelli Ski, owned by Steve and Emma have been running this our first fully catered chalet since last century! We now run 2 large chalets and 2 smaller apartments nestled here together in a horseshoe type arrangement. After Chalet Marmotte went so well, we added the 14 person Chalet Sapiniere (#3489) in 2001, a 6-8 person Apt. Flocon in 2003 (#439615) and then finally the 4-6 person Apt. Glacon in 2008, which was the last to complete the set! This gave us autonomy over the whole immediate area! This chalet can be taken on its own or in conjunction with our other chalet and apartments, depending on group numbers and levels of privacy or communality required! An indoor swimming pool and spa were built in 2010 adding another dimension to this already fantastic chalet. Our two boys were born in 2005 and 2007 and learnt to ski in Champagny and Les Houches where we also own a fantastic 15 person chalet - Rocky Mountain (#3081). We have lived in various places in the UK and now love living near sandy surfing beaches in beautiful Cornwall!
Barrelli Ski purchased this Chalet in 1999
Why Barrelli Ski chose Champagny-en-Vanoise
It is in a beautiful situation in a real French village - a fantastic ski resort in its own right with links to practically unlimited skiing and snowboarding. It has a fast, modern lift system and lots of affordable family and beginner passes and various lesson and ski pass options. In essence, we fell in love with Champagny because it has the best of both worlds! It has a fantastic ski area but also a natural charm and ambience which makes it different to many mass marketed ski resorts.
What makes this Chalet unique
It is in a stunning setting with beautiful views. Everyone loves looking out at the cold snowy mountains from the warm jacuzzi and swimming pool! We are a small family business with nearly 30yrs knowledge and experience, so we really feel we have finely honed our product over many years. Our top priority is providing high quality food and service at very affordable prices.

A lovely stay with gorgeous food!
We had a great time in our chalet!
The upstairs rooms where perfect for families and the loft rooms where great for our children who enjoyed their “dens”!
The food was delicious, each night we where more and more impressed with the food served. The staff where really kind and helpful. One member was even qualified in massages!
The pool was gorgeous and relaxing with two options for jacuzzis, one communal (with 2-3 other chalets) and one private, set in our massive garden!
Steve was great and very helpful when booking!
Great chalet as decribed, loved the pool and hot tub and team are keen to please
We stayed here in a group and the chalet team were happy to cater for our weird dietary needs. The hot tub was refilled daily and the views are fantastic. The pool was good for a dip and the sauna was super. The chalet team catered to our every need and we had a comfy stay. You do have a warm up walk to the lift and the bubble is good to avoid the icy runs home. The recommended hire shop was helpful and well stocked too! Great value for facilities offered. Highly recommend a stay here!
Amazing facilities at this relaxed chalet, attentive staff and great food so a great combination!
Thanks Barrelli for a fantastic week at Chalet Marmotte. Nik’s food was fantastic and there was lots of it. We particularly loved Joe and his dry sense of humour and laid back approach to hosting us! The chalet is run with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere but the staff are always there to help when needed which suited us great. The chalet is located in a lovely quiet spot, with stunning views but still close to the village and skiing. The walk up to the lift is steep but not long so we power walked up in the morning for a good little warm up! You don't have to do in your ski boots as we collected our equipment from the boot warming racks at the ski hire shop near the lift every morning. We especially loved the pool and hot tub in front of the chalet which both had amazing views across the valley. Steve was really helpful during the booking process and seamlessly organised our airport transfers and we pre booked our ski passes through the resort manager Sarah, so they were waiting for us in the resort but we didn't have to pay until we arrived. All in all, it was a great holiday, we will definitely be back next year!
an amazing house on an awesome location
we had an unforgettable time with all colleagues and partners together. a super teambuilding that has done well for everyone. to fully relax and enjoy in a fairy-like setting. very nice breakfast and dinner. we can recommend it to everyone
wonderful ski retreat
We had a fabulous week in Champangny staying in Chalet Marmotte.
The chalet was warm and inviting with plenty of space for the whole group. We were looked after really well by Sarah the resort manager and the whole team making lift passes and ski hire seamless.
The chalet is conveniently located with just a short walk to ski shop and lifts. Champagny is a lovely small resort with a good selection of bars and shops we were there the first week of the season so it was really quiet which suited us fine.
The chalet had everything we needed with comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms and hot water! The communal area worked well and spent most evenings in here by the fire playing silly games. There was plenty of seating for everyone.
The chalet staff were amazing and we were very well looked after, cooked breakfast everyday, lovely cake in the afternoon and a delicious evening meal. A real treat.
The other facilities were the icing on the cake, having the pool, hot tubs and games room were an added bonus, but as we were so lucky with the snow we spent most of our time on the slopes. We had one non-skier in the group who really enjoyed her daily dip in the pool with a view.
Thank you Barelli Ski for a fantastic week and excellent service.
A little piece of heaven
Everything was perfect from the situation of the chalet (little village with stunning views across the valley), bedrooms & general areas (comfortable, stylish and homely), food (varied, plentiful & absolutely delicious), facilities (there is nothing better than soaking your weary muscles in an outdoor hot tub with stunning scenery all around) and the staff (friendly, efficient and so helpful). In fact it was my birthday when we were there & Kiki made me one of the most delicious chocolate birthday cakes I've ever eaten (that washed down with champagne was memorable). It was a fantastic holiday. If you want a piece of heaven - both to stay and ski you needn't look elsewhere.
1 hour from Chambery Airport, 2hrs from Geneva Airport, 2.5 hrs from Lyon or Grenoble Airport and only 20 minutes from Moutiers Railway Station. Champagny en Vanoise is an authentic village ski resort directly linked into the huge Paradiski ski area (La Plagne and Les Arcs). It is also just a 15 minute drive from La Tania, Courchevel and the 3 Valleys. The chalet is just 400m from the pistes and lifts and 350m from the village centre, with all its bars, cafés, restaurants and shops. At the foot of the ski lift is the ski hire shop we use, where you can leave all your ski equipment, enabling you to walk to and from the chalet in your normal shoes
