Kids will feel relaxed in this spacious chalet where there’s ample space to play. Italians love children – restaurants welcome them and Italian food is very child-friendly. In winter, there are kids’ ski lessons available with patient Italian instructors. Kidzone Cervinia is a park with sledges, buckets and spades for digging snow, playhouses and slides and bouncy castles. A Pack 'n Play, high chair, kids’ cutlery and toys will make your stay easier.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. During peak times (about two weeks before Christmas until the end of April and July - August) check-in is Sat to Sat; off-peak check-in is flexible. There are lots of internal stairs making this house unsuitable for an unsteady walker. Some stars have an open tread or have wide bannisters where toddlers should be supervised. There are 2 balconies where children should take care. The open fire can be closed for safety. An alarm system is installed but location in the village is very quiet and secure. Chalet staff can be provided for an additional fee. Car hire is recommended, there is a covered garage with parking space for two cars and 1 spot outside the garage.

About the Location

The chalet is located in the Alpine village of Paquier, in the Aosta province, Valle d'Aosta,and the town center of Valtournenche is 2 km away and easily walkable. The location is charming in the winter ski season with pistes on the doorstep and in summer when you can ‘via ferrata’ (climb aided by static ropes) or walk trails through flowering pastures with expansive mountain views. Summer skiing is possible in nearby Cervinia (15 minute drive) on the Plateau Rosà glacier. There is also a fun kid's snow park, Kidzone, also in Cervinia.

Style Notes

Alpine beauty. This chalet with over 400 sq m of living space has been renovated to a high standard with lots of cozy accents including fluffy sheepskins, deep sofas and a 360-degree open fireplace. Walls are made of bare stone or wood giving texture and interest. The balconies provide beautiful views of the valley and the town below. Parents will love the chef’s kitchen with instant hot water and still and sparkling water on tap. Bathrooms have high-end fittings and fixtures with details such as carved stone basins and wood-paneled tubs. We love the vintage ski posters; the cozy bunk bed with curtains; the light-fittings made out of pieces of reclaimed wood and antlers; and the free-standing tub and glass-cubed shower in the master suite that shouts opulence. There’s much design to enjoy here.
