- 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!
Marco Polo has once again been named ‘France’s Best Ski Chalet 2018’, after being crowned for the third time at The World Ski Awards after also winning this prestigious award in 2013 & 2014.
