Reviews of Val d’Isere rate it as one of the best mountain resorts in the world, and they’re not just talking about the excellent skiing. Well known for its stylish bars, first class accommodation and gourmet restaurants, Val d’Isere attracts a fashionable, predominantly British crowd. They come here for the glamorous party atmosphere as much as the reliable snow.  

 

Nestling in the French Alps, Val d’Isere is part of the huge Espace Killy ski area which includes the neighbouring resort of Tignes. It’s not just a winter destination either - Summer cycling, hiking and white water rafting in the Alps is increasingly popular.

 

If you are looking for an exclusive retreat,  Val d’Isere has plenty of large, freestanding chalets with dedicated staff to provide round-the-clock pampering. Several luxury chalets in Val d’Isere are next to the slopes, enabling you to ski in and out.  Chalet Montana, for example, is a seven bed chalet located above the Chemin de Clambin, and only 5 minutes’ walk from the centre of town. You couldn’t ask for a more cosy and secluded lair with its own chef and chauffeur.  There are more ski-in, ski-out chalets clustered around La Daille and La Legettaz.

 

A smart new leisure centre opened here in 2010, but some of the most exclusive luxury chalets in Val d’Isere have their own private swimming pools, gyms and saunas.  What could be more relaxing than chilling out in the beautiful spa area of Chalet Le Rocher after a challenging day in the mountains? And it’s even more attractive if you have non-skiers in your group. Accommodating up to 14 people, Chalet Le Rocher is a stunning mega chalet with plenty of wow factor and impeccable service.

 

But not all the luxury chalets in Val d’Isere are as large as this, so if you need something smaller with first class facilities, take a look at Chalet Himalaya. This icon of East meets West design has four bedroom suites, each with its own spa bathing area, and superb facilities including a sauna, pool and massage room. Val d’Isere may be a serious skier’s resort, but it’s also a place for serious indulgence.
