We had a disappointing overall experience. Although the location was first class, not much else was. The only other plus was that food was very good indeed, apart from the odd dessert and the breakfast, which was a quite skimpy (for example 4 pain au chocolat between 10 people). The wine was almost undrinkable.... + more

Location - where is Chalet Le Yéti

Superb, high quality wooden chalet in exclusive Val d'Isère location

Overview - chalet description - Chalet Le Yéti description

Chalet Le Yeti is simply stunning with wooden exteriors, authentic wooden beams and with furnishings all in keeping with very the high standards. It is evident that it was lovingly built by skilled craftsmen and we are pleased to welcome this chalet in to the chalet portfolio in Val d'Isère.

Three of the bedrooms have their own private balcony with fantastic views of the resort and the slopes. The master suite also has its own whirlpool bath and dressing room.

There is an outdoor hot-tub on the terrace from the lounge which is the perfect way to unwind after a day on the slopes whilst admiring the surrounding mountains.

The location is in the exclusive Les Carats area with private elevator access from resort level and it is only approx. 450m walk from the bottom of the elevator to Val d’Isère's centre.

Buffet breakfast with hot option and afternoon tea/coffee and cake . 4-course dinners including apéritif, choice of complimentary quality wines, coffee and chocolates

Piste Picnics

Our Chalet Hotels can also prepare a packed lunch for you on request, at a small local charge. For skiers keen to keep their Euro-spending to an absolute minimum, this is the ideal way to keep your costs down!

Afternoon Tea

The traditional 'welcome home' after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff's one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.

Children's High Tea

In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children's tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.

Children's High Tea in Chalet Hotels

New for 2013/14 Season - Families staying in one of our Chalet Hotels may choose to eat separately (High Tea at 5:30pm) or all dine together at the later adult dinner time if children who have received a child discount pay the meal upgrade charge of £39 at the time of booking only

Dinner in Chalets

A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host - or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets - and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening.

Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Culinary Choice Dinners in Chalet Hotels

A special feature of our Chalet Hotels is a more extensive culinary experience for our guests. With the greater kitchen facilities of a hotel, our professional chefs are able to offer choices of menu at dinner, generally including lighter as well as more hearty options, and always a vegetarian choice for each course. Guests will be asked to choose their evening meals at breakfast for that evening from a varied daily selection.

Our Chalet Hotel adult-only dinners offer 5 courses, starting with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and a cheese selection to round off your meal in style. All this is then followed by coffee with chocolates to complete your evening's repast! Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.

Vegetarian and Special Diets

Vegetarian options are always on our 'Culinary Choice' menu in our Chalet Hotels, and are available in our chalets if you advise us in advance. Other special diets can generally be catered for at a cost of £35 per person per week. Any dietary requirements must be advised to us at the time of booking in order for us to be fully prepared.

We update Chalet Le Yéti's details often, but facilities do change. e.g. some extras listed by the supplier as "free" or included might only be for the first time you use them, or for one time per party, then charged for further use. If any specific feature is essential to your holiday, make sure you ask us to confirm the details of it before you book your holiday.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere makes up half of Espace Killy which is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the attractiveness of its surroundings, the resort itself is a compilation of alpine hamlets made up of cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and eye-catching church steeple at its centre, the whole place is truly oozing alpine charm. And while dreamily trad in appearance, Val's numero...
In Val d'Isere you'll be skiing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski there, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of its premier status, the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009, along with the World Cup every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, beginners can...
Famed for its après ski, you're unlikely to have a dull evening in Val. The resort has 4 nightclubs including the legendary Dicks T Bar (open from 4pm - 5am). Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at Le Folie Douce, which boasts some of the best après ski in Europe. “Bananas” is another favourite, well known for its fantastic cocktails and convenient slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 92 restaurants, you'll find dishes to suit all tastes from traditional Savoyarde indulgence to Marga...

"Not a Platinum chalet"

Alexander Stocker, Buckinghamshire
1/ out of 5
We had a disappointing overall experience. Although the location was first class, not much else was. The only other plus was that food was very good indeed, apart from the odd dessert and the breakfast, which was a quite skimpy (for example 4 pain au chocolat between 10 people). The wine was almost undrinkable. The chalet was generally run down and badly maintained. The Wifi hardly worked while were there, which was a real shame as we couldn’t contact our family on Christmas day. It was meant to be a ‘Platinum’ chalet but many things were poor quality, for example the bedding and pillows didn’t fit properly, and the crockery was chipped and from Ikea. Every single toilet roll holder was broken in the chalet. The whole chalet was filthy because the hoover was broken and this played havoc with my asthma. There was no kindling for the fire, we had to use cardboard. Our towels were not changed, we ended up washing them ourselves. The hot tub was not up to temperature until Tuesday evening, and this was one of our main reasons for booking the chalet. The boot warmers and the whirlpool bath in our room also weren’t working while we were there. Apparently the whirlpool bath hadn’t worked since Christmas 2012. The staff were accommodating but they seemed to be overstretched and the rep was not helpful.

Five stars all the way for this really nice catered chalet. This was actually our second time stying here, as we had booked it a few years ago when VIP had it, and we paid a lot less this time! Thanks so much for an absolute winner.

The highlight of this chalet is undoubtedly the hot tub on the balcony (must double check its still there) because there are few better places to unwind with a cold beverage after a day on the slopes. However, the rest of the chalet is definitely no let down either. With a rustic stone and wood façade, and a stylish contemporary interior décor, I think the Yeti is very much in keeping with the exclusive surrounding area of les Carats. Confident skiers can ski back to the door via the famous ‘Face’ black run; though for the less adventurous there is a private elevator at resort level to whisk you home in style.
