Absolutely wonderful stay in this magical hotel. Everything was brilliant from the food , to the rooms, to the staff. the location is very near to the slopes and the ski shop has everything you need. I especially liked sitting int he bar listening to music at night before dinner.

As a family we stayed at this hotel for the first week of January for 3/4 years in a row, 8 years ago. However we are still very familiar with it because we come to Val D'isere every year and many family friends still stay at Barmes and we frequently visit them. Positives: -SPA area is well kept and generally... More

The Hotel was very nice, sitting next to the slopes. They have 2 restaurants (although they claim to have 3 but one is part of the other). We enjoyed all the three but definetely recommend the *Michelin one for slow and nice family dinner. The Savoyarde one is also great for fondue and raclette. The spa and swimming pool are... More

I usually stay in ski-in ski-out hotels. I knew the hotel did not have ski-in/out but the staff is one the best i saw till today. Rooms are comfy enough. Great lobby and playing rooms for kids. One of the big bar lobby in Val D'isere. The rooms close the lift might be little noisy. Perfect for family vacation. 5... More

We shared a family suite at "Les Barmes" for our ski clossing weekend and it was beautiful. The most relevant thing was the service; we could find no fault with it. They knew at all times who we were and tried to anticipate every wish (and did so many times). The only thing I found fault with was the food;... More

My third stay at 'Les Barmes' last week and it keeps getting better. Indeed this time it was faultless. Valerie is to be congratulated for putting together a fantastic team of staff;polite,charming, smiling, efficient, helpful. Without exception.

We had dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant of this hotel: simply amazing! the dining room is tastefully decorated with the tables far apart from one another to give the diners privacy and a sense of luxury. We had the fish dishes and the coquilles Saint-Jacques and they were all utterly delicious. Together with the 'amuse-vouches' which came with our aperitif... More
