Amid snowy slopes and wooden luxury lies Le Chardon Val d’Isere, a charming mix of chalets

Located in one of the French Alps, somewhere in Val d’Isere, Le Chardon Val d’Isere offers both comfort and excitement. The family-run hotel has its Le Chardon mountain lodges situated strategically to offer you serenity and solace.

As you hop off your shuttle into Val d’Isere, the snowy winds immediately transport you into awe. Take some time to admire your surroundings and step into your chalet, where another world of wonder awaits you. Revel in the stunning decor evident across the walls and the beams that magnetize attention with their beauty.

Step into your fine dining area and have your gourmet chef prepare an unforgettable dish to tingle your tastebuds. Then slide into the comfy sofa in your lounge area and snuggle right next to the warmth of the fireplace.

When the kids return from their exclusive morning ski, the hotel’s chefs prepare a sumptuous and healthy meal for them. And, of course, they provide just enough treats to whet their sweet tooth.

Your chosen chalet steals your attention as each is designed with skillfully crafted stone and wooden decor, complementing the home-away-from-home aura of the atmosphere.

The chalet will drive you into astonishment with at least one bubbling hot tub. And when you’re up for indoor relaxation, hop into one of the en suite bathrooms and slip into a tranquil bath.

Complete your holiday with a visit to L’Escape Killy and ski your troubles away. Or steer clear of the skis and slide close to the art in an exquisite gallery or the French patisserie classes. If you choose, Le Chardon Val d’Isere will surely have you returning on your next skiing trip.

Stayed for a long weekend during the opening weekend of the resort (29/11 - 02/12/19)We stayed at Chalet Lafitenia. Our group was 4 couples +1. This chalet has great character, stunning views from the lounge and dining area and well equipped bedrooms and bathrooms with oodles of REN products. The chalet host and staff were charming, well trained and very professional. This was demonstrated in many ways all around the chalet, from the attention to detail in cleaning and preparing the bedroom, to creating a fabulous ambiance for dinner. The open bar flowed freely and the refined cuisine quite delicious. The team of drivers dropped us and collected us wherever we wanted in the resort.Can't recommend Le Chardon Mountain Lodges highly enough. On the whole a memorable and fabulous experience. Thank-you Claire, Josh & Team!

The chalets were sumptuous. The food absolutely delicious. My personal favourites were the canapes - butternut veloute with seared scallop. Mm! And the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Never felt quite so pampered on a skiing holiday in my life.
