This family friendly resort is ideal for beginners and Chalet Éléna sits right within the centre of Les Houches. Providing 49 apartments over two large chalets, the residences offer everything you might want from self-catering ski accommodation. The apartments within Chalets Éléna each feature an open plan kitchen-living area, a large balcony, and one or more spacious bedrooms. 

Families and groups of friends will enjoy the laid back atmosphere, central location, and 4* chalet amenities. Facilities such as parking, ski lockers, bar and lounge, children’s area, and wellness centre (including swimming pool, children’s swimming pool, hammam, treatment rooms, sauna, Nordic bath, and hot tubs) mean that your experience at Chalets Éléna can be entirely self-contained if desired. 

What we like about Chalets Éléna

  • Immaculately presented interiors and comfortable furnishings
  • Fantastic communal facilities including extensive spa and wellness area
  • Short walk to the ski lifts and the centre of town (5 minutes)

Worth knowing

  • Delivery of your shopping and in-chalet chefs can even be arranged for those of you looking for the ultimate luxury experience. 
  • As a family friendly property within an extremely family friendly resort, this hotel is by no means adults-only
  • While toiletries are provided, the self-catering apartments do not include toiletry refills so it’s best to bring your own shampoo etc.
  • A room inspection is required on check-out
  • Free private parking is available on site
