What we love

Boris is excellent. Despite Elista being a self-catered property, you really feel looked-after by the owner, who is the perfect host and will even take you to the lifts in the morning! If you are a keen cook, then hold your breath for the kitchen – it is a delight!

The Property

Chalet Elista is located in a private hamlet in the heart of Courchevel 1550, set away from the main road and accessed by a private drive.

Stunning Design, Complete Luxury Skiing

With their simple but timeless design, the Kandahar chalets enjoy a great location at the heart of Courchevel 1550, only 300 meters from the ski slopes. The two chalets, each measuring 270 m2, perfectly combine traditional style with comfort, luxury and modern convenience.

Comfortably sleeping up to 11 guests, the Elista chalet makes a superb choice for a winter sports holiday either with family or friends. The chalet enjoys an extensive lounge area with an open fireplace offering stunning views over the Dent du Villard. There is also an open plan kitchen, South-facing terrace, 5 bedrooms with a bathroom and a private garage.

Unwind in Comfort

When it comes to unwinding, the Kandahar chalets both feature a relaxation and well-being area that offer a choice of facilities including Jacuzzi, steam room and cinema lounge in chalet Elista, or an indoor pool with counter current swimming and a steam room in chalet Samarra.

The Kandahar chalets have been built according to a sustainable development policy. Features include geothermic heating methods and the use of natural building materials, which by no means compromise modern comforts and standards.

To prevent you missing any precious time on the slopes, Each morning the staff will drive you to the ski lift or the ski school meeting point in Courchevel 1550 in a private mini-bus. The resort gondola which runs every day until 7pm, gives direct access to the centre of Courchevel 1850 and takes just 15 minutes.

Best holiday in a long time – we normally love complete independence but the breakfast delivery was such a blessing in disguise!
