Welcome to Chalet Val d'Abondance

Thanks to the virus a nationwide curfew is still in force between 7pm and 6am, and bars cafes and non-essential shops remain closed until at least 19 May 2021.

Ski lifts in France did not open at all during winter 2020-21. 

The Portes du Soleil resorts hope that ski lifts will be allowed to operate with appropriate safeguards over summer 2021 to provide access to the mountains for mountain bike riders and pedestrians.

As and when overseas travel is allowed, the chalet is available for owners to visit on a non-catered basis.  Visitor numbers will be restricted to provide distancing space and reduce exposure to risks.  If you intend visiting you may wish to hold off making travel bookings until late in the day as most cancellations may not be covered by most travel insurance.



Chalet Val d'Abondance is owned by a group of British ski enthusiasts. Its our second home and this website was set up to provide information to the owners, their families and friends planning to visit.  As you would expect we have focused on providing comfortable, spacious accommodation, gourmet food, and a great atmosphere, all in a stunning Alpine location. That's "the Val" experience

Whether it's skiing or snow boarding across the vast Portes du Soleil ski area, hiking, mountain biking and white water rafting in summer, or just relaxing, its a holiday to remember.

Originally built as a hotel, Chalet Val d'Abondance has been extensively renovated and updated, and our staff work hard to provide a welcoming, club like atmosphere.  To keep things running smoothly day to day operations are overseen by a small management committee within guidelines agreed at the annual owners meeting (party).
This approach seems to work, as the Val is known for its friendly club-like atmosphere, and our commitment to ensuring that standards of comfort and service remain high.
