Chalet Ruby

We are looking forward to returning to this chalet and working with the new owners who took over in May 2022. The 3-star Chalet Ruby is nestled in the lively resort of Les Deux Alpes, France, in the oldest part of town. The chalet is just 50 metres from the free bus stop which provides a circular route round the resort.

Chalet Ruby is a fully renovated former stone farm cottage and has two floors of guest bedrooms. The ground floor has a communal area where you can relax in front of the log fire in our spacious sitting room and take your meals on our huge farmhouse table where there is a drinks fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.

We have an open-air Jacuzzi on the chalet terrace to soothe your aching muscles after a hard day on the slopes, a ski locker with racking and a boot dryer for all your ski gear. The maximum group size at Chalet Ruby will be 10 guests.

How does a ‘Twin Share’ room work?

We offer a room as a Twin Share basis to increase the total number of guests in the Chalet and also to offer some reduced prices spaces for guests to join. The room is allocated to one sex or the other, depending who books first, they are all non smoking (as is all the chalet), and both guests have their own space and storage in the room. On a ski holiday you spend very little time in your room, therefore a Twin Share option is a great way to save money – use the saving to pay for your lift pass.
