Located at the top of a private road, assuring privacy and enjoying views of the Isère valley, Le Rocher is one of an elite group of chalets which can justify their claim to being “the best chalet in the Alps”. Designed and built by the same architect as Eagle's Nest, Chalet Le Rocher is an extraordinary chalet.
As you approach the chalet, its sheer scale is breathtaking and you find yourself in awe of its grandeur, illuminated by dazzling chandeliers hung from the eaves. The heated steps lead to the intricately carved door frame from Afghanistan and the swimming pool can be seen through the panoramic window.
Le Rocher perfectly balances the look of an impossibly grand, authentic chalet with cutting edge style and innovation. Everything has been thought of to enable you to indulge in the ultimate skiing holiday.
The swimming pool has its own projector screen and the steam room is disguised as a tiny chalet. Take the lift to the second floor and you are greeted by the magnificent living area with its vaulted ceiling and fabulously stylish decor. Cowhide sofas and light shades are complemented by sensational modern glass chandeliers and the crackling log fire is the focal point of the room. Out on the balcony and in front of the imposing "rock", the red cedar Storvatt Hot Tub is the ideal place to enjoy a glass of champagne while gazing at the stars.
Our hosts will mix your drink behind the bar before inviting you to take your seat at the enormous dining table which is fit for a banquet and 14 can be seated in extreme comfort in the black velvet throne style chairs.
The living area is equipped with a 64" flat screen and DVD/Blu-Ray library, not to mention satellite TV and B&W Zeppelin iPod dock. All of our chalets are non-smoking inside.
Each bedroom is beautifully finished in a rustic Alpine style with reclaimed wood and intricately carved furnishings. Every room has an en-suite bathroom and AV equipment. The master bedroom suite is supremely spacious and offers his and her dressing rooms in addition to en suite facilities.
Service is delivered by our Flagship team, who pride themselves on tailoring your holiday to your needs. Your private chef will amaze you with gastronomic treats while your hosts deliver impeccable service yet melt into the background, leaving you to savour the unforgettable experience.

Val d’Isère is a mecca for downhill skiing for good reason. It has enough to keep skiers of all standards challenged and entertained for a lifetime, let alone a week. The off piste potential is limitless and the snow record enviable.

When to travel
Val d’Isère boasts one of the longest ski seasons in the world because, unlike other resorts above 1800m, 80% of the skiing happens above 2000 metres. As a result, early and late season offer reliable great conditions. Being high, it is cold though and we think March and April are the best times to visit Val.
