Just a stone’s throw from the Bellevarde Express and Olympique lifts, this four-star family-run retreat is one of the best places to stay in Val d’Isere for skiing the Espace Killy area. The selection of rooms – both junior suites and suites -are all tastefully decorated, including self-contained cabins for the kids (we all need a little privacy).
The warm restaurant serves up traditional French cooking, while a sun-trap of a terrace is the perfect place to kick back and watch the world go by. The bar is set out around a large cylindrical fireplace, and there’s even a smoking room for those not wishing to brave the great outdoors.
Finally, a swimming pool, fitness centre, spa and beauty salon help skiers unwind, relax and preen themselves for a night out on the town. After all, the infamous Dicks Tea Bar is only just across the road.
