A relaxing bolthole in a quiet enclave of Val d’Isere, Chalet Akaroa is ready to welcome you. This luxury self-catered ski chalet in the peaceful and upmarket Le Fornet area of Val d’Isere has a traditional stone style that’s continued inside with a modern rustic look.

High ceilings and large windows allow the light to flood into this beautiful chalet, filling it with sunshine in the mornings while you eat breakfast in the sociable dining space or take coffee out onto the terrace to enjoy the mountain air. In the evenings, when the fire is roaring in the huge stone fireplace and everyone is sitting around on the capacious sofas, under fur throws and blankets, it’s the cosiest space you can imagine.

Being just 200 metres from the ski lift, the property is well located for keen snow bunnies who want to be out on the mountains moments after waking up. But for those who want to take their luxury ski holiday a bit more easy, there’s plenty more to do besides, from wandering around the shops and cafes of Val d’Isere to elegantly loafing back at Chalet Akaroa, spending an afternoon bubbling away in the outdoor hot tub or watching a movie in the fabulous cinema room.

When evening falls, head into the village, or to nearby Val d’Isere, to enjoy delicious local delicacies or fabulous international cuisine. Then it’s back to Chalet Akaroa for nightcaps on the terrace and to fall into soft, super-comfy beds in the luxury bedrooms.
