This traditional style residence makes extensive use of stone, wood and slate. Inside, there's exquisite attention to detail in the stylish décor from eye-catching wallpaper to distinctive lighting.
There is a mini-market and ski shop just next door and a wider selection of shops and bars is available within 500m. The free village shuttle bus stops 50m from the chalet and operates every 10 minutes. It also stops at Laisinant Express chairlift, Solaise gondola and at the ski school meeting point (5 minutes).
Superb facilities include a comfortable lounge area with open fire, the Bains du Montana spa with indoor swimming pool, sauna and hammam; luggage room, ski room with individual lockers and boot dryers. You can even borrow sledges! When the Ski Collection team visited, we were particularly impressed with the spa, which has a tisanerie and offers treatments (payable locally).

The luxury Chalet Izia will be the latest, and a very welcome, addition to the resort’s high-end accommodation offering. Opening in December 2019, the residence enjoys the ultimate ski-in/ski-out location in the Legettaz sector, right next to the renowned red “M” piste (which becomes a blue heading down to the snow front, an easy one minute’s ski, with its nursery, ski school meeting point and main lifts). All 51 spacious apartments are very tastefully decorated in a relaxed, contemporary style.
4* Les Chalets du Jardin Alpin in Val d'Isère is located in a tranquil setting of the La Legettaz area, at the foot of the Solaise ski slopes offering doorstep skiing possibilities (snow and level depending) and is half a mile from the resort centre (800m).
The Avancher Lodge is a small residence of just 7 apartments, adjoining the Hotel Avancher (***superior) and enjoying the same ideal location in a quiet part of the resort on the Avenue du Prariond, yet just 450m from the resort centre, lifts and ski school meeting point, and 350m from the slopes; the shuttle bus stop is 50m away.
The luxurious 5* Hotel Avenue Lodge is a highly fashionable boutique hotel, enjoying an unbeatable central location in Val d’Isère’s main street, whilst also being just 150m from the Solaise and Bellevarde lifts and ski school meeting point.
The 3* Hôtel La Savoyarde is a traditional, chalet-style hotel, owned and very professionally run for many years by the friendly Marie family. It enjoys a very convenient, central, though quiet location between the main street of the resort and the snow front.
The very popular Kandahar is a friendly, very professionally managed 3* superior hotel, enjoying an excellent, central location on the resort’s high street, the Avenue Olympique, with a vast choice of shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep, whilst providing quick access to the Bellevarde and Solaise lifts and ski school meeting point, all just 250m away.
The excellent Hotel Avancher (and the adjoining Résidence Avancher Lodge****) enjoys an ideal location in a quiet part of the resort on the Avenue du Prariond, yet just 450m from the resort centre, lifts and ski school meeting point, and 350m from the slopes; the shuttle bus stop is 50m away and it is normally possible to ski back to within 80m of the hotel, snow conditions permitting.
Completely renovated in 2017 and tastefully decorated in contemporary style, this 140m2 very cosy Chalet le Cabrini offers a high standard of comfort, as well as one of the best locations in Val d’Isère, being at the foot of the slopes, 200m from the Bellevarde Express and 400m from the Solaise Express and the ski school meeting point.
For the winter 19-20 season, the former lift station on the Tête de Solaise has been skilfully and lovingly converted into a brand new luxury hotel– at 2551m, the highest in the French Alps: the Refuge de Solaise is the most exciting hotel development in Val d’Isère this coming winter, and probably one of the most challenging and ambitious in the Tarentaise for many years.
