Chalet Gentiane has been built to our specifications and finished to a high standard. The entrance to the chalet is on the first floor with two bedrooms on this level and another four on the level below together with a sauna. All bedrooms have full en-suite facilities.
The open plan dining area and lounge are located on the top floor with seating around a glass-fronted log burning stove. Balconies on two sides provide stunning views across the valley towards Montchavin in la Plagne and the Vanoise express which links to the two resorts. When you pre-book your equipment hire via Ski Beat, guests of Chalet Gentiane benefit from the in chalet fitting service.
Your chalet hosts live out. Rooms 1, 2 and 6 can take a cot
The chalet is just 50m from the piste which gives access to the 6-seater chairlift out of the village; the Vanoise Express for skiing in la Plagne and the ski school meeting point. At the end of the day you can ski back to the same spot.

"Chalet was warm and welcoming, also SPOTLESS. Katie and Craig were extremely attentive, knew their stuff and were great fun. Food was excellent throughout but the beef, chicken and salmon were sublime! Have stayed with Ski Beat several times - their host are always good but this week was particularly impressive :-) Outstanding Katie and Craig thank you."

"Mark and Katie were absolutely fantastic hosts at the Gentiane - everything was made so easy for the guests and I honestly have no complaints whatsoever! The evening meals were delicious and I always found room for seconds (or thirds!). Breakfast was also great as well as cake and afternoon tea after a hard day's skiing. Would definitely recommend and go back to the same chalet - Mark and Katie took care of everything!"

"The nicest chalet we have stayed in! Chalet hosts Nick and Joules couldn't have been better - they managed to be very professional whilst providing us with a very personal service. The service and the standard of food was exceptional."
N. Wright, January 2013
"Absolutely fantastic! Very happy with Nick and Jools, they were very attentive, very nice. The chalet was very clean, the food was absolutely amazing! Overall very happy!"
P. Price, February 2013
"We've been travelling on chalet holidays for the last 12 years and I genuinely don't think we've ever had better chalet hosts than Jools and Nick. The food was excellent - both for adults and actually more importantly for the children who ranged in age from 3 - 12 and after a hard days skiing can be fussier than normal. They even visited our youngest child in the creche during the day to say hello! They were warm and friendly, excellent with the children and a delight to spend time chatting to at mealtimes. They made the work look effortless."
J. Inglis, March 2013
"Nick and Jools are the best chalet staff we have ever experienced in any chalet holiday over 25 years. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable and made a fantastic effort in helping us celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary. I regularly recommend skibeat to friends with young children as childcare is so well set up."
