Located in a peaceful corner of Lower Hirafu, this two storey chalet is your perfect home away from home. The design is Scandinavian-inspired and less austere than other newly built chalets in Hirafu.
The focus is on warm family living, with cozy sprawling sofa area in front of the TV complete with bean bags and board games. Most of the upstairs floor is taken up by the open plan living, dining and kitchen space. Light wood finishes abound, ample windows bring in natural light and views of Mt Yotei can be glimpsed among the snow-covered trees.
Three bedrooms (one of them en suite) are located on the ground floor, sharing space with the main share bathroom. The master bedroom is upstairs connected to the living room. Ample ski storage is available in a dedicated dry room, shared with a separate washer and dryer. Lower Hirafu is home to some hidden gems in Niseko’s cuisine scene, but a full-feature kitchen is at your disposal should you choose to stay in and cook instead.
There is wi-fi throughout the building, a flat-screen TV with Satellite TV, a DVD player and selection of board games too – for the young or young at heart!

SETTING / ATMOSPHERE
Chalet Billopp is located in the Lower Village of Hirafu, 10 minutes’ walk downhill from the main street. The secluded location means peace and quiet.
Surrounded by woods and chalets, you’ll find all the peace and quiet you desire just a short shuttle ride away from the action.
LIFTS / TRANSPORT
Chalet Billopp is two minutes’ walk from the nearest village shuttle, meaning you can get to the ski hill within about 10 minutes. There is free parking on-site so if you have your international drivers license, arrange a rental car and get to anywhere in Niseko without a hassle.
The management will pick you up from either the Hirafu Welcome Center or Kutchan Train Station at the start of your stay, and drop you off again at the end.
RESTAURANTS / BARS
Slower to develop than Upper Hirafu, Lower Hirafu is still home to some of Niseko’s hidden gems for local cuisine – restaurant and izakaya style bars Ebisutei and Nagomi are just up the street. Hirafu’s new club Powder Room has opened its doors nearby. For those looking for relaxation apres ski, Yukoro Onsen is also a short stroll away, as is beauty hub Niseko Spa located in the Haven Niseko building.
