Luxury Chalet de Pierre features five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a ski-in, ski-out location as well as its own sauna, gym and private lift. The good-sized bedrooms have small but tasteful bathrooms, and more importantly, each room has a pair of decent-sized beds which fit together to make a huge double if your holiday is going well, or slide apart if it isn't. Better still, the rooms have picture windows that provide breathtaking views of sunrise over the Galise, or sunset behind Bellevarde.
The sitting-dining room under the hefty rafters, with its open-plan kitchen, is vast. In a village where a coffee-table's worth of property can sell for 20,000 gbp, it is amazing to find so much space.
The table has been hand-made to our specifications: three diners on the longer sides, two on the ends. Thatﾒs the way to get a good conversation going! Mealtimes are accompanied by an unforgettable view of Bellevarde.
At the other end of the room there's an equally spectacular view across the bottom of the lovely, smooth L piste and up to the glaciers of the Italian border, to be enjoyed from big, squashy sofas around the log fire. When it gets dark, there's a flat-screen TV with lots of programmes in French, some in English, and a selection of DVDs. Or use the WiFi for a quick snoop on Facebook...
On the ground floor, between the front door and the private lift which whisks you to the bedroom floor or the living room floor, are the ski room, boot warmers, sauna and gym (cross trainer, cycling and rowing machines - just what you need after eight hours' skiing. Please see photo.).
But what we like best is the position. The chalet dominates the charming little hamlet of Le Laisinant, just five minutes walk or one stop on the free bus past the edge of the main village, from a position just beneath the Traversee du Laisinant piste.
You don't have to be a good skier to return to the chalet from the bottom of the L or Mattis pistes, while the never-crowded six-seater Laisinant Express chairlift is two minutes' walk, or a quick pole away. The Laisinant Express was already the quickest way into the Fornet ski area, and now a new run takes skiers straight into the Solaise area, making this chairlift a superbly convenient way to start the day's skiing.
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.
