Location - where is Marco Polo

Situated in the centre of resort set back from main road.

Overview - chalet description - Marco Polo description

Marco Polo is situated in the heart of the French ski resort of Val d’Isère. Discreetly set back from the main road, it offers dual benefit of privacy and easy access to the town centre.

The chalet comfortably sleeps 10 adults and 4 children in six beautiful en-suite bedrooms. And with over 1000m² of alpine-chic living space, it combines contemporary and traditional materials to create a true masterpiece of style. The expansive living area features an open plan lounge and dining area that is set around a central fireplace. This extends onto a large balcony through glass doors and comes complete with an outdoor kitchen and heated seating; offering breathtaking panoramic views of the notorious La Face piste. For when it is too chilly outside, the bar area is the perfect spot for an après-ski cocktail.

Adjacent to this is a hot tub and Hammam, and adjoining this you will find a relaxation area complete with a fireplace and bar, lasers and an entertainment system. To soothe tired limbs there are two massage rooms and an automatic hydro massage machine.

Descending into the heart of the chalet there are even more treats in store. The cave and fromagerie make the ideal setting for a wine and cheese tasting. There is also a games and entertainment room, with a pool table and darts board. In addition, the techno gym is equipped with two of everything, so you can workout in pairs.

And if all this was not enough, this Winter Marco Polo landed it’s very own télécabine to feature as an über cool ski boot room. In addition, it is home to a new interactive racing car game that will allow for up to 8 players and a biathlon laser shooting game!

Ski never-ending pistes and powder, ogle at colossal peaks and cosy Savoie architecture, then end the day with some of the world's most wild and wonderful après ski. Val d'Isere is considered by many to be the best ski resort on earth, and we’re inclined to agree.

In France's Rhone Alp region, Val d'Isere (pronounced: val de saire/sare/ser or val d sere) is widely thought of as one of the most brilliant and beautiful ski areas in the world. In keeping with the giddyingly gorgeous surroundings, the resort itself is one of France's prettiest - a huddle alpine hamlets formed from cosy wood and stone chalets. With the original village dating back to the 13th century and a Christmas-card-worthy church steeple at its centre, there’s alpine charm by the bucket load. While dre...
Skiers in Val d'Isere are schussing in the tracks of some of the world's greatest skiers. Olympic medallists Marielle and Christine Goitschel learned to ski here, not to mention triple gold winner Jean-Claude Killy, after whom the wider ski area is named. As an indication of this place's premier status - the resort has hosted championships including the 1992 Olympics, the World Alpine Ski Championships in 2009 and World Cup events every December. If some of the best skiers in history have learned here, begi...
Famed for its après ski, there's no chance of a dull evening in Val. Living up to its name, you'll experience ‘sweet madness' at the original Le Folie Douce, which brings you some of the best après ski in Europe - including dancers, musicians, raining champagne and much more... Once that closes, Dicks T Bar's a local legend, staying open into the early hours each night. Bananas is another firm favourite, much loved for its crafty cocktails and slope-side location. In Val d'Isere's 90-something restaurants, ...

"Marco Polo in Val d’Isere, France"

Celine Renaud, A Luxury Travel Blog
5/ out of 5
Winner of France’s ‘Best Ski Chalet’ award, this is one of the most spectacular chalets I have stepped foot in, from the gold leaf tiles around the swimming pool and a mosaic designed by Christian Lacroix to the secret underground hideaway where guests will find the rarest wines and sample the best cheeses and charcuterie. The chef, who I have had the personal privilege of working alongside is one of the best in the Alps. Quite an apt matching. Marco Polo is described as ‘a unique experience of sensations and a sophistication at a level never before attained’ this could be a review of the food only, but all come on equal levels in this chalet. Reach for the stars and you may just get the idea. Dining here is the rarest of pleasures and one to savour. From: '3 of the best European chalets for gourmet food', A Luxury Travel Blog, 03/04/14
