Chalet Nicola has had a 300,000 euros internal upgrade this summer and has been regraded as a premier service chalet.
Private hot tub: Why not relax in the outdoor hot tub after a good day’s skiing. Unwind with a glass of bubbly served by your chalet host and ease away the exercise of the day.
Courtesy minibus service: This runs from the chalet each morning (apart from the staff day off) from 8.20/8.30am onwards to take guests down to the gondola station. Guests are asked to make their own way back to the chalet in the evening or you can ski back down a red run to within a 30 second walk of the chalet. There are also heated boot and ski lockers for rent at the gondola station.
The three floor Chalet Nicola is one of the loveliest chalets in Le Praz and is characterised by the stunning contemporary and luxurious decorative style and natural wood that is displayed throughout the chalet. The chalet has been finished to an extremely high spec and includes underfloor heating throughout.
The beautifully finished first floor sitting room is the heart of this chalet and with an open hearth log burner creating warmth and cosiness it is a very welcoming place in which to relax at the end of the day. The double height of the sitting room lends the room grandeur but at the same time it is bright and airy with light streaming in from the large windows. There is ample seating provided in the sitting room by a number of two and three seater sofas. Two sets of double french windows lead off the sitting room on to a large balcony extending the length of the chalet providing stunning views of the Jean Blanc and Les Brigues pistes running back down to Le Praz. Additionally, there is an extensive dining area with seating for up to 16 people.
Sleeping 12/13, the 6 bedrooms, located on the ground and second floors of the chalet, are all luxuriously decorated with plenty of wardrobe space and all have the luxury of ensuites with floating sanitaryware and power showers.
To soothe those aching muscles after a long day on the slopes why not enjoy the indulgence of the outdoor hot tub with a range of massage water jets whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly in the open air.
