10 Reasons to Book a Ski Holiday at Chalet Le Dragon 2015/16

Here are our 10 reasons to book your next ski holiday with us at Chalet Le Dragon in the Portes du Soleil, France.

Chalet Le Dragon
Keen Prices

Unlike the majority of ski holidays, we have held our prices as low as possible over the last 6 seasons and constantly check our prices against the competition. We appreciate that a ski holiday isn’t the cheapest holiday you can take, so have tried to make the accommodation element as affordable as possible. We will quote you the complete price that reflects the service that we offer you. We will always quote you the price in £UK so you know where you stand and this year transfers are now included.

Transfers to / from Geneva INCLUDED

It can be quite a challenge and costly to find a way to get to your alpine accommodation. We take all of the effort and stress out of booking your transfers, as we do it all for you. Just let us know your travel times and we will arrange for either a private minibus or a shared transfer to meet you at Geneva – see Magic Transfers.

High Quality Ski Hire at the Chalet with SkiHire2U – prices held 2015/16

We understand how much hassle it can be to go out from the chalet and visit a ski shop after you have spent all day travelling to your chosen accommodation. At Chalet Le Dragon we work very closely with SkiHire2U, a local mobile ski hire company. They offer the flexibility to come to the chalet and fit your skis, boots, poles or snowboards. Their equipment is normally new or in its first season and is professionally serviced before being signed over to you for your holiday. If you want to change the kit or upgrade to more advanced skis etc, just let us know and we will arrange it seamlessly behind the scenes for you.

Ski Lessons Organised for You

There are many options for ski lessons and it can be a minefield working out the best options from a distance. We have worked with all of the ski schools in the past and we can discuss with you your requirements and then suggest the best options. If you want a ski school, private lessons, Independent Instructors or even off-piste and heli-skiing, we can help.

Lift Passes Arranged and Collected in advance

La Chapelle local, Evasion, Chatel or full 650km Portes du Soleil lift pass? We will discuss with you your skiing ability and then suggest the best lift pass for the individuals in your group. 90% of the time, clients take a full PDS lift pass because the options it offers for varied skiing is superb.

Experienced Chalet Owners – Now Our 6th Ski Season

We live in the adjoining Petit Dragon all year round. During the ski season we ski the entire Portes du Soleil as often as we can. Outside the ski season we mountain bike and hike the area so we have a full understanding of the terrain.

We started our chalet business from scratch, having moved here in 2010 with our young family. We have built our business through enthusiasm and sheer hard word. It is important to us that you have the kind of ski holiday that we would like to be on ourselves!

Matt and Emma
Personal Service

Following on from our 5+ ski seasons of experience we pride ourselves on offering a service beyond your average chalet package holiday. We like to think that we are better than the standard offerings provided by the cheaper package ski holiday companies. We are on-hand all of the time to answer questions and take time to make sure that your holiday is going well – your holiday is important to us.

Cosy “home from home” Chalet with Roaring Log Fire

At Chalet Le Dragon there is nothing better than sitting down on the large, comfy sofas, kicking off your slippers and sipping one of our free house wines in front of the roaring open fireplace. Enjoy a free beer, or glass of wine, after a hard days skiing whilst tucking into the freshly made cakes, or take tea and coffee after dinner by the warming open fire. New for this season is also an Internet TV with Netflix and also a SONOS music player.

Chalet Le Dragon Reviews 2014

Trip Advisor Certificate  Chalet Le Dragon
At Chalet Le Dragon we pride ourselves on our level of service and the the quality of the offering we have. We just received the review below from one of our clients this year…

“Recommended” – TripAdvisor 2014

Holiday was arranged easily with helpful and quick communications at very late notice. We were looked after really well with lots of care and attention. Meals were top class and prepared fresh in a relaxing environment with no short cuts. Biscuits, cakes and hot tubs nice touches and while not much to do in the village there are lovely walks up in to the woods and along the river which were cool. As was the micro brewery bar / restaurant a short stroll away – that was a place with a lot of character and well worth several visits, especially at happy hour.

Flexible transfers to slopes to suit us. Really really went out of their way to help us out when we got caught out and I needed rescuing from Geneva – that was the strongest example of the extra mile they generally go to in order to add personal commitment, show they’re good guys who care about people and value customer service. They run the chalet naturally with this attitude.



“Excellent Hosts and a Beautiful Chalet” – TripAdvisor 2014

I had an amazing time at Chalet le Dragon. Matt and Emma are kind, attentive and accommodating. I was part of a group of 9 who stayed with them for a week. The wine and beverage deal is a must!

I must commend them for the ease with which they hosted 9 people from 8 different countries with 3 completely different ski proficiencies. Matt carried us to and fro with a smile and it was greatly appreciated.

We made full use of the Chalet (game and movie nights, hot tub, and the lovely balconies) and the restaurants that they booked for us in Chappelle d’Abondance were lovely. Matt & Emma, thanks for a lovely vacation!



Chalet Le Dragon is a 5 bedroom, 10 person ski chalet in the Portes du Soleil, France.
