Chalet Sarire, Val d'Isere, France

On the edge of a pine forest in the beautiful hamlet of Le Fornet in Val d'Isere, luxury Chalet Sarire has been carefully selected for its peaceful and traditional setting as well as its great access to the huge Espace Killy ski area. There is a chauffeured 4x4 to take you to the lifts in the morning (although the Le Fornet cable car station is only a few minute's walk away). After a day on the mountain you can head to the lively apres ski in town, or simply ski back to the door of the chalet and relax in front of a roaring log fire.

Holidays can be defined by exceptional service; whether it's a complimentary ski companion service, a thoughtful restaurant recommendation or anything else to make your holiday more enjoyable. The 4 staff running Chalet Sarire are there to help you when you need them, and will leave you alone when you don't.

Successful group holidays will bring you all together in comfortable communal areas rather than isolating you in your room. Whether you're celebrating or relaxing, the big open plan living and dining areas combine with a large outdoor wooden deck to create the perfect entertaining space.

Chalet Sarire offers 250 square metres of living space (1st, 2nd and 3rd floor of the chalet) and has five bedrooms. It will sleep 12 adults in comfort (one of the bedrooms has an additional adult-sized bunk-bed that will sleep two comfortably if required).

A passion for good food and wine will be injected into the menus. Fusing everyday cooking with modern, fresh seasonal ingredients you will be served with contemporary bistro style food that is not pompous or gratuitous, but something you will enjoy and want to talk about. There will be a menu consultation before your arrival so that menus can be shaped to your needs and tastes.

There is a well stocked wine cellar of excellent quality that come tried and tested or through trusted recommendations, and what holiday wouldn't officially start without complimentary Champagne on arrival? There is also a selection of spirits in the honesty bar which are additionally priced at the end of your stay.

Please note that there is a self contained two bedroomed apartment (4 to 6 people) that occupies the ground floor of the chalet which may be sold separately (it has a separate entrance). This can be booked, however, to accommodate larger parties of 16 to 18 people if required (see details for Chalet Grande Sarire).

Guardian On-line, Feb 2011: "A private chef, fine wines, the comforts of a boutique hotel - a hip hideaway in the French Alps makes for a very special ski trip."

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...
Chic modern chalet, not over the top but nicely decorated throughout. Food is excellent and service is attentive with this small chalet operator. Being in Le Fornet means this chalet is best suited to adult groups or for families with children who have skiied before.

Please note that the comments made by our clients below are not endorsed by Alpine Answers. However, we include them (both good and bad) to help make your choice of property more informed.

Extract from article in the Guardian on-line 5th Feb 2011: A stay here is, inevitably, pricier than most skiing holidays. (However) it's very good value given the food. Most chalet holidays involve a gap-year Charlie or Charlotte serving spag bol or chilli con carne - if you decide to dine out, you could easily add 50 gbp per person per day. Here you get a top chef, food locally sourced and cooked right before your eyes.
