Get a taste of the French Alps’ vast and exciting area of Paradiski at amazing value. Our short ski breaks at Pére Marie give you 3 or 4 full days on the slopes and 3 or 4 nights catered accommodation from just £299 to £499 per person for 3 nights (supplements apply to weekends)  INCLUDING evening transfers from Geneva airport AND a Paradiski ski pass.

Choose which day you want to fly: take advantage of budget airlines’ low cost mid-week air fares or escape to the slopes for an adrenaline filled weekend with minimum time off work.

Ski time is precious – maximise it!

Get as much time on the slopes as possible by using our FREE evening transfers from Geneva airport. Your included lift pass will  be ready and waiting for your arrival (along with a late supper). With our affordable in-house ski hire you can be kitted out and ready to catch the first lift next morning after breakfast.

On your last day spend virtually a complete day on the slopes then have afternoon tea at Père Marie before getting in our minibus and returning to Geneva airport.

Longer stays

As we offer any day arrivals at this chalet you can stay for as many nights as you like – we have Geneva transfers running every evening (subject to availability).

Location

Chalet Père Marie is situated in the quiet hamlet of Le Pré, Villaroger, a completely unspoiled village that retains heaps of old world charm and beauty. Villaroger has not been overrun by tourism, continuing to house many local people and still has working farms.

Père Marie has a superb location approximately 80 metres from the lift connecting you to Arcs 2000 (and it is often possible to pole this rather than walk!). Snow conditions permitting you can ski back to the door.

There are no shops in Villaroger but there is a popular restaurant close to the end of the piste at the foot of the epic run down from the Aiguille Rouge; open for lunches, evening meals and drinks. A new restaurant has also opened right next door to the chalet!

The chalet was recently renovated and completed in 2012. The developer has taken great care to ensure the property has retained all of the original character when it was built over 100 years ago but is fitted out with modern amenities required by today’s standards. Widespread use of old and new timber throughout the chalet has helped retain heaps of rustic charm.

Chalet Père Marie has three floors linked by a stunning spiral staircase constructed in stone.

The L shaped lounge and dining room is located on the top floor and benefits from superb panoramic views across the valley and of the twinkling lights of La Rosiére and Ste Foy by night. As well as the vast windows and a balcony with breathtaking views, the lounge also has a feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove and plenty of seating.

On the ground floor is the ski and boot store with heated boot dryers, underfloor heating and outside entrance. Also on the ground floor is the sauna. Outside on the front terrace is the hot tub, a new addition for the 2015 winter season.

The chalet’s 10 spacious bedrooms are situated on the ground, middle and top floors. All rooms have been beautifully renovated with under floor heating, individual temperature controls and striking en-suite facilities (some have baths and all have showers). There are quad, triple, twin and double rooms; many have balconies or access to the terrace and several have amazing views.

Flat screen TV’s with UK Freeview channels are installed in every bedroom and free WiFi is available throughout the chalet.

Ski to Door

It is usually possible to ski back to the door by poling across a small field. In the morning a mere 80 metre walk takes you to the village chair lift linking to the Arcs 2000 area of Paradiski.

FREE Geneva Transfers

Our FREE transfer service collects in the evening at 19:00 – 19:30 (suitable for flights landing by 19:00 – later collections may be possible subject to a fee). A late supper will be ready at the chalet on arrival.

On your last day spend almost a full day on the slopes, refresh with a shower and fill up with tea and homemade cakes before returning to Geneva airport. Our vehicle departs the resort late afternoon at 16:00 for evening flights taking off after 20:30. Usually our guests do not need to check out of their rooms until the transfer departs. On occasions we may ask guests to vacate rooms after breakfast in which case a bathroom and room for changing will be made available.

PRICES AND CURRENCY VARIATIONS

All rates shown on our website are subject to availability and we reserve the right to increase or decrease our prices at any time prior to your booking being confirmed.

Our prices for Winter 2017-18 have been calculated using a current rate of €1.16 to £1.

Fluctuations in currency value mean that we may need to apply surcharges depending on the exchange rate.

70 days before travel we will check the value of the Euro on XE.com (or on the day of bookings for reservations made less than 70 days before departure).

  • If the value of Euro is equivalent to, or less than 2% below the value we used to calculate our rates, we will absorb any difference and you will not be charged any currency surcharge. For information: a fall in the exchange rate of 2% – below €1.16 – would be €1.14
  • If the value of the Euro is more than 2% below the value we used to calculate our rates – that is lower than €1.14 to £1 – we will apply a currency surcharge to your invoice total.
  • The amount of surcharge will be calculated on the exchange rate shown on that day on XE.com but will not exceed 10% of the invoice total; we will absorb any excess.
