Traditional chalet apartment with village centre location

  • 6 people
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 5 beds
  • 3 bathrooms
  • 85 sq m


‘Chalet Encombres – La Tête de Fer’ is a traditional chalet apartment with an open-plan, spacious kitchen, living and dining area. There is a cosy lounge with comfortable leather sofas facing a log burner – Ideal to relax in front of a roaring fire after a long day on the 3 Valleys ski slopes!

The dining area has a large dining table that comfortably seats 6-8 people. Double doors open up onto a south-west facing balcony with breathtaking mountain views.

There are 3 bedrooms in total. One with a double bed and full en-suite bathroom and two with a double/twin set up and en-suite shower rooms. These two rooms share a WC located on the same floor.

All in all, this is an attractive new addition to the SC chalet portfolio for a family or small group of friends!


‘Tête de Fer’ is the top floor chalet apartment in the ‘Chalet des Encombres’ building. Situated in the heart of the village, on a quiet residential road it’s a fantastic location!
The drag lift and village ski slope is only 100 meters distance to the chalet – Less than a 2 minute walk from the chalet’s front door!

All resort amenities such as the 8-à-Huit supermarket, tourist office, the village’s best bar ‘Pourquoi Pas’ and several renowned restaurants are situated within a 100 meter radius from the chalet!

Nevertheless, you are just far enough away from the centre to be able to enjoy a quiet setting and beautiful mountain views!

Very well-equipped and cosy apartment in a great location

Very well-equipped and cosy apartment in a great location - only a minute away from the main lift. We were able to ski back to the door. The team were very helpful in helping to organise our stay and providing little extras for us (the sledge was much appreciated!). The boot warmer was fantastic. We hope to come back again.
