Val d’Isere’s well known for its postcard-ready collection of cosy wood and stone chalets – a marvellous mix of refurbed barns and farmhouses and new-builds continuing the classic chalet style. Up at 1850m, this is one of the higher resorts in the Alps, with chalets giving quick access to the snow sure ski area. This page shows you all chalets available, from the smaller, simpler lodges to insanely luxurious mountain mansions.
Most chalets are catered, meaning minimal work on your behalf – in most chalets, you’ll wake up to a hearty breakfast and return after a day of skiing to afternoon tea, dinner and wine. There’s usually a chalet host’s day off (or two days off), where you get the chance to try a local restaurant at suppertime (we like 1789 for tartiflette and Pizz'n'Love for pizzas). If you’d rather stay in a self-catered chalet, ask us to confirm what’s available.
If you’re travelling as a family or small group, you can enjoy a warm, intimate setting in one of our smaller chalets – we love Chalet Foxtrot which sleeps 8 and it positioned only a hundred metres from the red Santons piste in the Bellevarde area. There’s also the lovely Aspen Lodge Suite, which sleeps 6.
If you like the idea of chalet catering but prefer a bigger build where you can meet more guests, check out Chalet Hotel Le Val d'Isere and Chalet Hotel Moris which can both be found in the resort centre. Chalet hotels are a super option for solo travellers and families who like a large, sociable setting where you can meet new people in communal living, dining and activity areas.
Ski in/out Chalets in Val d’Isere
There’s no denying that the Espace-Killy is one of the world’s greatest ski areas, and if you want to spend as much time on the pistes and powder as possible, stay in one of our ski-in, ski-out properties like Chalet Arabella, which sits at the foot of the Solaise slopes. Mixing skiing convenience with hundreds of years of history, Chalet La Rocheure can be found on the red Olympic run - a refurbished alpine farmhouse with some parts dating back to the 17th century.
Even if a chalet doesn’t have doorstep skiing, it’ll often only be a short walk to the slopes or you can use the regular free bus that runs around the resort.
Every family’s different – you might want a chalet with on-site childcare for tots, somewhere quiet for light sleepers or a base near the nursery slopes for learners. Whatever your criteria, the good news is that Val has every kind of property to suit. Just let us know what’s best for the brood and we’ll hand pick the perfect holiday.
Whether you want to be near the Folie Douce in La Daille or slap bang in the hub of dining and nightlife in the centre, the locations of our chalets work for all kinds of group holidays. They come in all sorts of sizes too, from 4-bedroom chalets for small groups to big chalets and chalet hotels – find one that matches the number in your group and you can avoid paying underoccupancy and enjoy having the whole place to yourselves.
For the ultimate luxury, treat yourself to one of our exclusive properties – the finest accommodation in resort with wellness and fitness facilities, spacious en-suite bedrooms and more to make your holiday as special as possible. At the very top end of the scale, Val d’Isere’s home to some of the most luxurious chalets on earth complete with whole floors dedicated to spas, private cinemas, wine cellars and gourmet cuisine – have a look at the photos and facilities of Marco Polo, which has won the title of ‘France’s Best Ski Chalet’ on numerous occasions.
Book your chalet with flights and airport transfers for the easiest journey to the slopes – our package deals are second to none – look out for special offers on ski hire, lift passes and more. Self-drive packages are available if you’re looking for accommodation and channel crossing and you can also select ‘independent travel’ if you’re sorting out the journey yourself.
Chalets in Val d’Isere centre/Val d’Isere 1850
This is the main hub of resort, home to the ski schools and nursery slopes. The Solaise and Olympique gondolas, Bellevarde and Rogoney chairs and Village and Legettaz drag lifts serve the ski area from Rond Point des Pistes. The town itself has a bundle of food, clothes and ski hire shops and all kinds of restaurants and bars (including the famous Dicks Tea Bar). There’s also the Centre Aquasportif for swimming and a sledding run. Accommodation includes chalets of all shapes and sizes as well as apartments and hotels.
Chalets in Val d’Isere’s old village
Also known as Old Town, this is the prettiest part of the town centre – a cluster of original wood and stone properties with sloping rooves, pinpointed by the old church bell tower which dates back to 1664. Once the roads to Val d’Isere improved in 1888, the rest of the resort slowly grew around this area. If you like a chalet holiday in a historic location, this is the place to find one.
Chalets in Val d’Isere Le Cret
Sometimes called Du Cret, this hillside hamlet sits on the outskirts of Val d’Isere centre, looking back over the town with La Daille to the west. A bundle of refurbed farmhouses and newer buildings crafted in the same Savoie style, it has a cosy, high-end feel. Buses serve both the centre and La Daille, which can also be reached by a 15-minute walk.
Chalets in La Daille
This is the first area you reach on the drive up from Bourg St Maurice. A good-sized village with shops, ski hire outfits and restaurants, the traditional chalets here mix with apartment blocks (designed to mirror the shape of surrounding peaks) and hotels. The village is served by the Daille Gondola (where you’ll find Folie Douce at the top station), as well as the Etroits chair (also leading in the Tignes direction) and the Funival railway (which takes you up to the Bellevarde area). Green, blue and red runs lead back the base. There are good bus links to the centre of Val d’Isere, or you can walk there in about half an hour.
Chalets in Le Fornet
Fornet is the village on the eastern end of the resort (or left of the centre on the piste map). It sits at the foot of the Col de L’iseran and is served by the Fornet cable car and red and blue runs. A collection of wood and stone chalets and excellent restaurants (including 2-Michelin starred L'Atelier d'Edmond), it feels like a classic mountain village and is quite a bit quieter than the main hub. You can reach the centre of Val by bus in about 10 minutes, while the walk takes around half an hour.
Chalets in Le Chatelard
Above Rond Point on the piste map - near Legettaz, Clochetons and Le Joseray - a huddle of chalets make up the Chatelard hamlet. You can reach it through the tunnel from the centre near, with the bus ride taking about 5 minutes. Walking takes about 15-20 minutes. The nearest piste is the red Santons run from Rocher de Bellevarde.
Chalets in La Legettaz
One of the charming hamlets above the main town, Legettaz has a secluded, exclusive feel, with gated enclaves housing some of the finest chalets in the alps. If you look at the piste map of Val d’Isere, find the town centre, go up to Rond Point des Pistes then up a little further, you’ll find Legettaz. The area’s a 5-minute drive from the main town via the tunnel, and the top luxury chalets have a driver service to transport you to and fro. If you fancy walking, the journey takes 15-20 minutes on foot. A lot of chalets here have doorstep skiing onto the red Santons piste.
Chalets in Le Laisinant
In a quiet spot between Le Fornet and the centre, Le Laisinant’s loved for its gorgeous 16th century buildings and new cottages built in matching wood and stone. The Laisinant chair lift has connections to the Col de L’Iseran and Solaise areas, and blue Piste L takes you back to base (you can link onto it via the Germain Mattis Red). Buses run to Le Fornet and Val d’Isere, and walking to each takes around 15-20 minutes.
