Peisey Nancroix in France’s Savoie region offers all the thrills of great skiing and boarding, together with a traditional Alpine atmosphere and stunning scenery. This little gem is one of five authentic Savoyard villages which make up the Peisey Vallandry ski resort, which in itself makes up part of the massive Paradiski domain. Paradiski is made up of Peisey Vallandry, Les Arcs and La Plagne – to produce one of the largest ski areas in the world with more than 425km of piste. Peisey Nancroix offers the perfect match of Alpine retreat, amazing scenery and typical Savoyard charm with some of Europe’s best skiing and boarding right outside the door. And White Stripe Mountain Lodge’s Chalet Iris is the perfect base to enjoy all of this. Chalet Iris is an independent, cozy mountain chalet located in Peisey Nancroix which is lovingly run by the owners of White Stripe Mountain Lodge and perfect for a group of friends or family to kick back, relax and enjoy a great winter holiday. It’s the ideal place to re-charge body and mind. And it won’t cost an arm and a leg. White Stripe Mountain Lodge’s prices are family affordable and the owners personally go out of their way to ensure their guests are comfortable, happy and relaxed. The owners, Renato and Jodi-Ann Pastorino, believe all holidays should include great food and comfort and they provide just that. Their prices include breakfast and freshly baked afternoon tea every day and dinner with complimentary wine (or beer) on six nights per week. They’ll also happily book their guests into one of Peiesy-Nancroix’s lovely local restaurants on one night of the week and if anyone’s in serious need of relaxation after a day on the slopes, they can even arrange an in-chalet massage. They can also help guests to book lift passes and ski equipment and will have their guests’ lift passes waiting for them at the chalet on their first day of skiing. Their ski rental partner fits ski equipment in the chalet for the ultimatein convenience. They’ll then hosttheir guests on the piste on their first day of skiing to familiarize them with the mountains and show them all the best runs. And after that, the mountains are there to be explored! Skiers and boarders will have the choice of everything from easy tree-lined blue runs and fun reds to challenging moguls, perfect off-piste powder and two snow parks to show off their moves.
