Val d'Isere has a great choice of five-star hotels offering plenty of grandiose glamour, palatial premises, and beautiful bars and restaurants. As you'd expect, most of them have their own spa facilities and quite a few have their own ski hire shops in-house too, so you don't have to travel far to pick up your gear when you arrive. This also means that there's somewhere to store it a the end of the day. From chic, elegant and modern designer establishments to the more traditional chalet-style hotels, Val d'Isere has plenty to offer at this end of the market.
Our 3 favourite luxury hotels in Val d'Isere
These are the Val d'Isere hotels that, in our opinion, stand out from the rest thanks to their top-range facilities and services:
1. Le Blizzard Hotel
Modern-meets-Alpine design at Le Blizzard Hotel, located in the heart of Val d'Isere just a few metres from the pistes. This is a great luxury option for families thanks to its large family rooms and the possibility to book childcare. The spa is situated at the foot of the famous Bellevarde slope and there are two restaurants to choose form.
2. Christiania Hotel
If you're looking for more traditional charm, then the Christiania Hotel is a good option. Also in the centre of Val d'Isere and near the slopes, this hotel has a wonderful spa and beauty salon, a lounge bar and a restaurant with a terrace overlooking the pistes.
3. Le Refuge de Solaise
Le Refuge de Solaise is the highest hotel in France, at 2551m. A refurbished lift station, there's no road access in the winter, you'll have to take a gondola to access the hotel – which means that you'll also be the first on the slopes in the morning, and the last to leave the mountain. With breathtaking views, a gourmet restaurant and a fully-equipped spa, you'll feel like you're on top of the world.
