We update Marco Polo'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.

This accommodation only holiday to Marco Polo in Val d'Isere, France departs Sunday 11th December 2016, for a 7 night stay on a "catered chalet" board basis. A local tourist tax (Taxe de Sejour or Kurtaxe) is levied by many councils in European ski resorts. It varies by standard and type of accommodation and is age dependent, so not everyone is charged. It's not included in the basic price of your holiday and is usually paid locally. For reference, the average charged in winter 15/16 was between 50p and £2 per person, per night.

Ski never-ending pistes and powder, ogle at colossal peaks and cosy Savoie architecture, then end the day with some of the 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.

"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
