As a family (3 children/4 grandchildren (with another on the way!)), we love skiing. We escape to The 3 Valleys as often as possible and have made a real home in the mountains. I am English but my husband is Swiss so he introduced me to skiing and immediately I was smitten. We wanted to be able to escape the pressures of work in England as often as possible; just get in the car and go whenever possible. Originally we bought a duplex in Meribel Les Allues - we loved this but my favourite was always Le Praz and when we needed more space we were so lucky to ask just at the right time. There was nothing available but we left our name etc. with the agent. We received the phone call and had to make a decision from England and off plan within hours or someone else would buy it! What a wonderful decision that was.


Matching suits were fashionable once...I think they call it retro now?!



Les 3 Vallées are home to eight ski resorts that are linked together by a unique network of ski lifts and ski runs. The resorts and villages lower down in the valley should also be added to these : Brides-les-Bains (at an altitude of 600 metres) is a spa resort that is linked by cable car to Méribel, the main town in the Allues valley, and Orelle (at an altitude of 900 metres) in the Maurienne valley which enabled the southern slopes to be equipped for skiing, providing access to the top of Les 3 Vallées: la Pointe du Bouchet (3400 metres).


We wanted to stay in our holiday home at any time of the year; many ski resorts close between seasons and you can't even buy a loaf of bread. Le Praz is a real village, open all year with every amenity. No car needed unless you want to explore. Free bus service during ski season; 2 ski lifts 150 yds from the chalet. Olympic ski jump by lift. Vast ski area, linking Meribel, Val Thorens, La Tania, Les Menuires, St Martin and all Courchevel resorts. The chalet is totally equipped (linen/towels supplied) - just bring your boots and skis (or rent round the corner). We love it when there are just the 2 of us and we love it when we fill it with 8 people, family and friends. Summer is also wonderful there with so many activities available from golf, tennis, swimming, biking etc. We love it!
