Any length short breaks – flexible, affordable and catered
Get a taste of the French Alps’ vast and exciting area of Paradiski at amazing value. Our short ski breaks at Père Marie give you three or four full days on the slopes and three or four nights catered accommodation from just £299 to £499 per person for three nights (supplements apply to weekends) INCLUDING evening transfers from Geneva airport AND a Paradiski ski pass.
Choose which day you want to fly: take advantage of budget airlines’ low cost mid-week air fares or escape to the slopes for an adrenaline filled weekend with minimum time off work.
Ski time is precious – maximise it!
Get as much time on the slopes as possible by using our FREE evening transfers from Geneva airport. Your included lift pass will be ready and waiting for your arrival (along with a late supper). With our affordable in-house ski hire you can be kitted out and ready to catch the first lift next morning after breakfast.
On your last day spend virtually a complete day on the slopes then have afternoon tea at Père Marie before getting in our minibus and returning to Geneva airport.
As we offer any day arrivals at this chalet you can stay for as many nights as you like – we have Geneva transfers running every evening (subject to availability).
Chalet Père Marie is situated in the quiet hamlet of Le Pré, Villaroger, a completely unspoiled village that retains heaps of old world charm and beauty. Villaroger has not been overrun by tourism, continuing to house many local people and still has working farms.
Père Marie has a superb location approximately 80 metres from the lift connecting you to Arcs 2000 (and it is often possible to pole this rather than walk!). Snow conditions permitting you can ski back to the door.
There are no shops in Villaroger but there is a popular restaurant close to the end of the piste at the foot of the epic run down from the Aiguille Rouge; open for lunches, evening meals and drinks. A new restaurant has also opened right next door to the chalet!
The chalet was renovated and completed in 2012. The developer has taken great care to ensure the property has retained all of the original character when it was built over 100 years ago but is fitted out with modern amenities required by today’s standards. Widespread use of old and new timber throughout the chalet has helped retain heaps of rustic charm.
Chalet Père Marie has three floors linked by a stunning spiral staircase constructed in stone.
The L shaped lounge and dining room is located on the top floor and benefits from superb panoramic views across the valley and of the twinkling lights of La Rosiére and Ste Foy by night. As well as the vast windows and a balcony with breathtaking views, the lounge also has a feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove and plenty of seating.
On the ground floor is the ski and boot store with heated boot dryers, underfloor heating and outside entrance. Also on the ground floor is the sauna. Outside on the front terrace is the hot tub, a new addition for the 2015 winter season.
The chalet’s spacious bedrooms are situated on the ground, middle and top floors. All rooms have been beautifully renovated with under floor heating, individual temperature controls and striking en-suite facilities (some have baths and all have showers). There are quad, triple, twin and double rooms; many have balconies or access to the terrace and several have amazing views.
Flat screen TVs with UK Freeview channels are installed in every bedroom and free WiFi is available throughout the chalet.
Ski to Door
It is usually possible to ski back to the door by poling across a small field. In the morning a mere 80 metre walk takes you to the village chair lift linking to the Arcs 2000 area of Paradiski.

FREE Geneva Transfers
Our FREE transfer service collects in the evening at 19:00 – 19:30 (suitable for flights landing by 19:00 – later collections may be possible subject to a fee). A late supper will be ready at the chalet on arrival.
On your last day spend almost a full day on the slopes, refresh with a shower and fill up with tea and homemade cakes before returning to Geneva airport. Our vehicle departs the resort late afternoon at 16:00 for evening flights taking off after 20:30. Usually our guests do not need to check out of their rooms until the transfer departs. On occasions we may ask guests to vacate rooms after breakfast in which case a bathroom and room for changing will be made available.
If evening flights are not available to your local airport there are plenty of reasonably priced hotels in Geneva. Please click here for information about hotels near the airport.
