Chalet Squaw Valley, Val d'Isere, France

Luxury chalet apartment Squaw Valley is probably Val d'Isere's smartest residence. Spacious and quiet, it is much appreciated for its calm, understated decor, with lots of wood, granite and plain white. It is certainly the most perfectly situated building in town, being 50m from the eleventh-century church and 50m from the edge of the nursery slopes. The Savonette drag lifts and Grande Ourse restaurant are a minute's walk away, and you can eat lunch with the beau monde, while watching your children/parents/spouse having their first ski lessons. And nothing, from the Town Hall to most of the nightlife, is more than about 100m. You could visit the Mairie, say a Hail Mary and drink a couple of Bloody Marys, all within five minutes.

The apartment which is the Chalet Squaw Valley is on the first floor, looking towards the slopes and the sun. It has a large, comfortable sitting dining room and two sweet bedrooms with good bathrooms. It has the usual flat screen for French TV and DVDs, WiFi, and boot warmers in the basement. For two couples, a small family or Hugh Hefner, there is nowhere more perfect.

To us cynical Brits, the name Squaw Valley is likely to cause a smile. Wasn't the squaw on the hippopotamus equal to the sons of the squaws on the other two hides? But the name sounds incredibly smart to the French, who are obsessed with things Californian. Just make sure your friends know you're going to Chalet Squaw Valley in Val d'Isere, not the purpose-built resort of the same name with more beds than Val, a third of the lifts and a sixth of the 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.

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.
