A beautiful bolthole in the snow, Chalet Abade is a brand new luxury ski chalet in Val d’Isere that’s ideal for sharing with a group of family or friends. Designed in a natural, rustic style, but with a modern twist, and plenty of home comforts, you’ll relax as soon as you walk through the front door.
A five-minute drive from the centre of Val d’Isere, Chalet Abade has the benefit of being close to all the shops, bars and restaurants but nestled in a slightly quieter area so you can enjoy peaceful evenings in the privacy of your chalet, when you feel like it. Located right by Piste M, its ski-in/ski-out location is super convenient, too.
The interior is designed for plenty of socialising, with a spacious living area under vaulted ceilings, with floor-to-ceiling windows that let the light flood in as well as providing a picture-postcard view of the mountains. Back-to-back sofas face both the TV and the roaring fire, depending on your mood, and a huge statement chandelier hangs right in the middle, bringing a touch of country house style to the room.
When you return from the slopes, we recommend you throw on your robes and slippers and head straight for the outdoor hot tub or Hammam to relax. And if you’ve developed any aching muscles on the mountain, an hour in the private massage room with a masseur will soon sort that out.
Evenings are spent relaxing around the wood-burning fireplace with Champagne and canapés and then enjoying a delicious meal, prepared by your chef in the intimate dining room. And at the end of the night, we can’t think of a better way to round off the day than with digestifs on the chalet’s balconies, looking out at the views. If the mountain air and a sticky nightcap don’t send you straight to the land of nod, then the cosy bedrooms with spa style en-suites and comfy beds piled high with pillows and throws surely will. Sweet dreams!
