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!

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.

Premier Chalet

Chalet Nicola had a 300,000 euros internal upgrade in summer 2018 and an external upgrade in summer 2019 and is now our flagship 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 Wednesday and Saturday) from 08:20/08:30hrs 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.

Located in a quiet cul de sac at towards the top of the Alleés des Cerisiers, Chalet Nicola is set near the bottom of the Jean Blanc piste giving excellent access back to the chalet via a red run (Les Brigues) at the end of the day for experienced skiers (one minute’s walk). The Le Praz gondola station is a ten minute “ski boot” walk from the chalet and the village pubs, hotels and shops are a mere 5 minutes saunter away.

Chalet Parking
Please note that we do not have allocated parking spaces at our chalets.  We have a limited number of parking spaces in resort and parking spaces are reserved strictly on a first booked basis.  You may be allocated a parking space at another chalet.  If all parking spaces have been allocated you can book a parking space at The Alpinium in Le Praz (covered, payable parking and subject to availability).  A chalet parking space should be requested at the time of paying your holiday deposit.  Your chalet parking space will be reserved from early evening on your day of arrival until late afternoon on your day of departure (as the majority of guests driving choose to ski on their departure day).  If you arrive earlier and your parking space is still occupied by departing guests (and no other skivo parking space is available) then we invite you to park at The Alpinium for the day.


We made some changes to our catering services prior to the 2019/20 season.  This has now been tweaked slightly and will continue into the forthcoming seasons.  This change is industry wide and is in line with other ski operators.
