Chalet La Grande Sassiere, Val d'Isere, France

Luxury Chalet Grande Sassiere has the most amazing sitting-dining room in Val d'Isere. The room itself is large and lovely with acres of parquet and panelling, and massive roof beams, and the views from it are simply extraordinary. The south wall is solid glass, and the only view as spectacular as the moon on the mountains at dinner is the sun on Solaise at breakfast.

Have another look at the breakfast scene in the photos. That's exactly how it looks. There has been no computer jiggery-pokery. The table may look as if it's out on the balcony but it certainly isn't - guests don't eat breakfast at -15 degrees.

There are six excellent bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Four have the same view south, one looks west, and one has to make do with small windows looking up a mere square mile or so of mountain.

Then there's the seven-person hot tub on the large first-floor terrace to the side of the chalet. It's the real McCoy - massaging jets, underwater lighting, waterfall! More importantly, it has 24/7 filtering, and ozone purification as well as the usual chemical disinfection, so its water is as pure as a mountain spring. There are Crocs and fluffy white robes to help you get from your bedroom to the hot tub. The only thing more fun than sitting with a few friends in warm bubbles while drinking in the view of a quintillion stars and a glass of wine might be doing it as snow falls...

Obviously, the views wouldn't be such a feature if the chalet were down on the main street. Grande Sassiere is four minutes' walk up a private road from the valley floor, another minute from the bus stop, twelve in all from the centre. This is where Larry, the discreet bright yellow Land Rover, comes in. Between 8.30 and 10am, and 3.30 and 8pm, it runs guests from Grande Sassiere (and some other chalets) to or from any point they wish in Val d'Isere. Making Grande Sassiere literally a mere ten paces from the lifts!

Please note that the use of the hot tub in Chalet La Grande Sassiere is at your own risk (and that of your party members). The tour operator cannot accept responsibility for any accidents/injuries which occur during the use of the hot tub. Children must be supervised when using this facility.

Val d'Isere is widely acclaimed to be one of the top resorts in the world, with one of the best snow records in Europe. Linked with neighbouring Tignes, there are over 300km of pistes, vast areas of off piste and skiing as high as 3,000m. Val d'Isere is home to some of the Alps most luxurious chalets, offering guests a truly 1st class service with gourmet food, indoor spas, hot tubs, and state of the art entertainment systems. Val d'Isere is also home to a bevy of luxurious 5 star hotels and gourmet restaurants such as the Michelin starred La Becca.

We say...
This is one of the properties run by a highly regarded and respected Val d'Isere specialist chalet company. Having been in the resort for many years their product has been honed over time - travel to and from resort is a slick operation, chalets are meticulously clean, staff are motivated (one of the directors lives in resort during the winter months) and their chalet food invariably delicious. Properties run by this company are always highly recommended by Alpine Answers.
