La Vieille Forge

La Forge is a flexible ski holiday chalet. You can book a short break or week self catered or we can tailor make a catered package for you.
Maximise the moment on and off the pistes, ideal for time poor snow hounds! 

A warm welcome awaits from the Huski team.

For a self catered holiday we make up the rooms for you, supply all bed linen, towels and robes as needed, leave a welcome basket so you can enjoy a drink on your arrival and our chalet manager will welcome you and show you the property. We regularly maintain the hot tub and snow clear (hopefully!) during your stay. Our pre-arrival booking service ensures all ski passes and packs are organised or we will advise to resort information needed. We are happy to offer a free pre-shop delivery for essentials and can add extra services as housekeeping/cleaning and in resort minibus trips.

For catered holidays we will discuss your criteria and create a tailor-made package suggesting a local chef to facilitate the cuisine for you. We then add our ground support to organise all the daily logistics in terms of minibus trips and housekeeping. Flexibility is the key!

Information for families

Chalets certainly provide child friendly accommodation with 'home away from home' appeal. 

For children's catering we normally offer freshly prepared cuisine with Kidz appeal; spaghetti, home-made pizza, crispy chicken fillets with fried potatoes, fish goujons with minted peas, for example. We will look forward to speaking with mum on the phone and receiving the hit list!

The chalet itself is well equipped with everything kids may need;  Freeview Sat TV, board  games and a Wii. We have folding travel cots (and cot duvets), and highchairs but we don't supply car seats for infants (under 15kg). Please remember to bring your own childs' feeding equipment, nappies and formula milk. For little ones it is also prudent to pack two of everything; ski suits, mittens, hats, sunscreen etc.

By the nature of the Chamonix valley we recommend that families with small children also consider having at least one car. Certainly our excellent minibus service is available to take everyone skiing in the morning and collecting everyone at tea-time but please don't rely on our transport to take little ones back at lunchtime if they're cold or tired as invariably our staff will have left for their own ski time or they've gone shopping.
