Our party of 16 have just returned from a fantastic week in this beautifully refurbished chalet hotel which we shared with another 10 or so guests. The style & decor is really charming, spotlessly clean, warm and friendly. Most of the rooms seem amazing, spacious with plenty of storage. I shared a three bed room with 2 other girls, but the third bed was on a mezzanine level with low ceiling height, it's really only suitable for a child, nevertheless we managed. All include with lovely freshly installed showers or bath rooms.
The chalet is set in Fornet village, a tiny hamlet set around a river tumbling down the valley 40 minutes walk or 5 minute courtesy bus ride up from Val D'Isere. The bus stop and nearest ski lift was just 5 mins walk away from the chalet. The nearby slopes are beautiful and there's plenty of great skiing around Val D'Isere plus plenty to keep non skiers amused. It's a picturesque location which we enjoyed coming back to after a day on the slopes, although it would be nice to have a local hostelry to drop into en route in the village.
The lounge area was pleasant to congregate in for aperitifs before dinner, nicely decorated with board games etc available, but it was a little cosy for the size of the chalet and we missed some comfy sofas to relax to afterwards. The spa area was very nice with sauna, steam room, jacuzzi & loungers to recharge in.
The chalet team Steve, Greg x2, Sam, Simon and the chefs were absolutely fantastic, great service and nothing was too much trouble. The food was top notch, with lovely hot & continental breakfast, afternoon tea & soup, canapés and a delicious three course dinner with menu and wine choices each evening. They easily accommodated special requests for healthy options as well as the beautifully cooked menu. Will our rep was also great and sorted out all our needs.
So if you're happy to share with others and enjoy a picturesque peaceful location this could be the perfect place for you.
