Extended and completely reconstructed for the 2017-18 season, the Hotel Avancher has quickly established a loyal following and a reputation for being one of the resort’s finest 3 star hotels. The reconstruction has been very successful, extensive use being made of the traditional materials of local stone and wood, but with some interesting contemporary additions. The atmosphere is one of relaxed well-being, and in particular, the staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. Highly recommended equally for couples, friends and families.
Facilities at the Hotel Avancher include a reception, lounge, spa with outdoor and indoor saunas, whirlpool and steam room (included), massage room and hairdressing salon (pay locally); atmospheric bar with fireplace; the very highly rated restaurant serves an excellent 3 course half board dinner, as well as local specialities (their legendary raclette is not to be missed!), and an extensive hot and cold buffet breakfast. The restaurant is closed on Monday evenings, enabling guests on that evening to sample one of Val d’Isère’s many excellent restaurants (reception will be delighted to advise and book a table for you); free basic wifi (hi-speed available at 5€/day, payable locally); covered parking (payable locally, max. height 2.10 m).
