In the middle of the main street!
Just yards from everything of interest in Val d’Isère
Slopes 4min walk
We are immensely proud to be able to bring you Val d’Isère’s newest, smartest and best-located chalet for six.
Newest? Probabaly. It is in that imposing new building above the Fondue Factory (formerly the Perdrix Blanche – hence the name), completed last year.
Smartest? Well, the developer is Michel Covarel, the most dynamic architect in the French Alps, whose work features in every glossy magazine from Maisons & Bois to Luxury London, and who is the main reason why Val d’Isère has gone from just being known for the world’s best skiing to being equally famous for some of the world’s most luxurious chalets. We have taken the whole third floor of his latest project, apparently the most expensive real estate ever marketed in Val d’Isère, and Chalet Perdrix is splendid: tons of old wood and local stone, underfloor heated wood floors and massive sliding glass doors to the balcony with a stunning panorama across the rooftops of the village to the Solaise, Sana, Charvet and Bellevarde mountains, and beyond…
Best located? In the middle of the main street, literally on top of the Killy family’s very fashionable above-mentioned Fondue Factory, just yards from everything of interest in Val d’Isère and a four-minute walk to the lifts and slopes. If there’s a better location, we’d love to know where!
The three bedrooms are gorgeous, with superb bathrooms (one bath, two showers) and a sauna. They all face south, and enjoy the same breathtaking view as the sitting-dining room, which is Perdrix’s real pièce de résistance, with its circular dining table, log fire and huge sliding windows onto a wide balcony and wider views.
For three couples, six friends or one seriously spoilt family, Chalet Perdrix is as close as we’re going to get to heaven…
We are extremely well-suited to families. Some of our chalets are large, some small. Some are very smart, some very good value. And some have Extra Beds for children costing half the normal price (without flights), or 85% of the normal price if flights are included (though we cannot guarantee flights for extra beds).
Chalets are more relaxing for families than hotels, where parents are constantly worried that their brood will upset fellow guests, or self-catering apartments, where most of someone’s holiday will be spent shopping, cooking and clearing up.
And, perhaps surprisingly, Val d’Isère is the ideal family ski resort. It has good snow, short queues, wide nursery slopes with free lifts, and extensive new beginner runs higher up the mountain at the top of Solaise. (Beginners do, however, need a ski pass to access these higher nursery slopes) The flat village, free and frequent buses, very good ski schools, English-speaking instructors, and lots of British youngsters also help hugely. Where to Ski and Snowboard magazine describes the nursery slopes as ‘95% perfect’.
3 bedrooms for 6 guests
1 bath, 3 showers
Bedrooms in order of preference (in our opinion)
Twin/double (11′ x 9′) with bathroom and wc, walk-in cupboard space and view south.
Twin-double (11′ x 11′) with shower and wc and view south.
Twin/double (10′ x 9′) with shower and wc and view south.
Light and spacious room (21′ x 18′) with vast south-facing balcony giving a bird’s eye view over the village centre and beyond. Log fire, TV and WiFi.
With its own walk-through shower. Please note that the use of the sauna is at your own risk and that of your party members. We cannot accept responsibility for accidents/injuries that occur during the use of the sauna. Children must be supervised when using the sauna.
We start with a proper breakfast. Fruit juice, porridge, cereals from Rude Health, bacon, eggs, baguettes straight from the famous local bakery, yoghurt, tea and fresh coffee from Nespresso machines (with instant or infusions for those who prefer them). On one morning breakfast will be self-service with fresh croissants and pains au chocolat delivered to your chalet.
You return from the slopes to find bread and jam, a freshly-baked cake (except on staff days off), tea and coffee left out for you. If you would like hot chocolate, please inform your chalet staff (and tell them how you like it!).
Dinner is where we pull out all the stops on five nights of your holiday. Our policy on food is straightforward. We start with the best cuts of meat and the best fresh fruit and vegetables, not really counting the cost. Everything we need is available in Val d’Isère. Most people are very happy with our normal formula of canapés followed by a three-course, fixed-menu, dinner-party-style meal. The cuisine is largely French, though with a fusion of other influences.
A small proportion of our guests wishes to eat different food from the rest of their party. If you request a different diet, we will be able to offer one alternative meal so that the normal meal or this alternative will be suitable for vegetarians, vegans, dairy free, no red meat or no onions/no garlic.
Or you could tailor-make a menu for your party for the week and ask us to cook, say, two fish meals, one chicken, one red meat (when vegetarians can simply not have the meat) and one vegetarian meal – or whatever combination suits your group. This way everyone enjoys the same meals all together and, dare we say it, eats a little more healthily.
If a diet is more complicated than those mentioned above, we may have to make a charge for special ingredients but we will let you know in advance. If you want us to buy in special non-dairy milks and yoghurts there will be a charge in the resort, much the same way as the alternative wines mentioned below.
There are some diets we cannot cater for. We regret that we do not have the separate fridges, etc., required for Kosher diets, we do not have access to Halal meats, and we cannot guarantee that our chalets will be nut-free.
With dinner, we serve free unlimited quantities of a selection of very drinkable French AOC wine and vin de pays. This is, unfortunately, only with dinner, not breakfast, and we stop serving the wine when the coffee appears.
We also have a wine list from which you can buy everything from slightly smarter wine to Châteaux Lafite-Rothschild or d’Yquem. We sell these wines at less than they cost because you are not drinking the house wine.
