La Grande Ourse is our 5 bedroom (4 are ensuite and 1 has a private bathroom) flagship catered chalet. Set in a great location in Samoens, just 4 minutes from the village, and complete with hot tub, games room and breathtaking views.

La Grande Ourse is spacious chalet, with a large open plan living area. The games room has a pool table, plus there is free WiFi, a large screen TV with UK satellite channels and DVDs, a music system and Nintendo Wii to keep everyone entertained. Or you can simply relax in front of the fireplace or take in the views of the valley from the hot tub.

Throughout your stay, you can help yourself to beer, wine and spirits from the honesty bar (this is conveniently located so that you can enjoy your favourite tipple whilst in the hot tub!)

There's plenty of space in the boot room for outdoor clothing and ski/snowboard equipment and the heated boot rack will ensure that you have nice toasty feet every morning of your stay.

The chalet is just a 15 min walk to the ski slopes, where the Grand Massif Express takes you up to the ski slopes, but we provide a morning and afternoon shuttle service in our spacious minibus, and the free ski bus stops a couple of minutes from the chalets and drops you right next to the lift.

La Grande Ourse is available for catered holidays in the winter usually on a Sunday to Sunday basis, and for summer catered holidays on a Saturday to Saturday basis. The chalet can also be booked in together with Chalet Petite Ourse which sits next door to accommodate groups of up to 21.

Catered holidays at Chalet Grand Ourse

We love food and feel that it is an important part of your holiday. Throughout winter, we employ a professional chef to provide you with wholesome, hearty food, drawing on British, French and Mediterranean influences, using local ingredients where possible. We also take great pride (and pleasure) in sampling local wines to ensure our guests can enjoy the pick of the cellar. Quality house wine will be served every evening with your meal.

Packed lunches

For summer activity holidays a packed lunch is included on 5 days so that you can maximise you time on the mountains. For other holidays, for a small additional cost, we can also provide you with a packed lunch for the mountain. Ideal if you don't want lunch to interrupt your skiing or riding.
