Wonderful architecture combined with avant-garde interior décor and furnishings mean that this chalet oozes character and class. Among the finest chalets in Val d'Isère, Chalet Alice occupies the position at the top of the road guaranteeing complete privacy and, being slightly elevated, this magnificent luxury ski chalet has great views over the Isère valley.
Despite being close to the center of the village, Chalet Alice's secluded location guarantees peace and quiet, yet the main lift station takes only a couple of minutes to reach in one of our chauffeured 4x4s, or less than 10 minutes to walk.
The ground floor exemplifies the modern luxury chalet and is a real playground. The indoor swimming pool with jet stream and hammam are ideal for relaxing after a long day skiing and if the weather is bad, you may be tempted to not even leave the comfort of the chalet! For the ideal pampering we can also arrange for a beauty therapist or physiotherapist to come to the chalet for a treatment or massage. The spacious ski room is equipped with boot-warmers and gives direct access to the 4x4 waiting for you outside.
On the first floor, three of the en-suite bedrooms perfectly combine the Alpine rusticity of heavy antique wooden beams with ultra modern touches such as washbowl basins and chrome towel rails and are finished with super-stylish furniture.
The living space is double height with huge windows making the most of the valley views and the open fireplace and large south facing terrace mean that you need never lack for warmth whatever the weather. The unique slate dining table is the perfect place to experience our famous hospitality and mouthwatering cuisine, while enjoying quality time in the company of friends and family.
Upstairs, the large master suite occupies the whole top floor and offers the party leader intimacy and Alpine chalet authenticity.
All of our chalets are non-smoking.
Chalet Alice is a great place for a skiing vacation for families of two or three generations but perhaps even better for parties of friends. As with all our Premier chalets the service is exquisite.

Perhaps most importantly, our team will go out of their way to ensure you have a truly fabulous luxury skiing vacation.

Scott Dunn pioneered skiing vacations with childcare, allowing parents the freedom to ski whilst their children are expertly looked after by a qualified private nanny.

Our team organize age appropriate activities and can take the older ones to and from ski school, allowing you to spend all day on the slopes.

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.
Val d'Isère has plenty to offer less enthusiastic skiers too. The Centre Aquasportif has fantastic facilities including 2 swimming pools, climbing wall, multi activity sports hall, fitness suite, gym, squash courts and a Wellness area with sauna, steam bath, spa, cold baths and hydro-massage.
Designated walking trails are a great way of appreciating the scenery and there is an ice rink, husky riding, parapenting, skidooing, cross country skiing and much more.
There is a wealth of quality restaurants in the village and on the mountain (many of which are accessible to non skiers). The shops and galleries offer some great shopping (both the window and the real varieties).

Location & Directions
Val d'Isère, France
In the peaceful, private "Fermes de Val" area, Alice is a 10 minute walk from the center of Val d'Isère and a 8-10 minute walk to the Bellevarde Express lift. Geneva 170km, Chambery 135km, Lyon 234km.
When to go
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 meters. 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.
