To start planning your vacation to Chalet Eagle's Nest
Eagle’s Nest is an icon of Alpine luxury. Eagle's Nest revolutionised the chalet skiing vacation when it offered the first indoor swimming pool in a private chalet in 2002. Others have attempted to imitate Eagle's Nest but constant improvements mean that it continues to set the standard by which other chalets are measured.
As you arrive you are greeted by the bronze eagle, nearly 3 meters high and sculpted by Livio Benedetti who created the “Dame du Lac”, you pass on the way to Val d’Isère. The chalet’s position, atop a rock with incredible views over Val d’Isère, and in the private estate, simply cannot be rivalled. The famous La Face piste is at the end of the road, meaning that you can get on the slopes quickly. Inside, beneath the surface of a beautiful, traditional alpine chalet is a super high tech property boasting a steam room, sauna, jetstream indoor pool, Sonos integrated music system, flat screen TVs in the bedrooms and an outdoor hot tub.
Chalet Eagle's Nest is spread over four floors. The top floor is completely dedicated to guests, with a large spacious living room, comfy sofas and armchairs - with plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Doors lead out onto the balcony where you can sit and gaze at the mesmerising views from your clifftop position. A separate mezzanine with flat screen and games consoles provides another space to relax and the newly created bar area means that cocktail hour at Eagle's Nest is something special. Dining at Eagle's Nest is unforgettable as fine wines, breathtaking views and a crackling log fire complement exquisite courses, beautifully prepared by your private chef.
On the first floor is a small double room and the master suite which has outstanding views on two sides, a dressing room and wonderful bathroom decorated with Italian tiles. Descend another level and there are four double bedrooms all of which qualify as suites, as well as a single bedroom. All are beautifully furnished and en suite.
On the lower ground floor, the fabulous wellness area has wonderful views and integrated music. You can swim against the jetstream in the swimming pool and the sauna and steam room are perfect for soothing aching legs after skiing. However, enjoying a glass of champagne whilst luxuriating in the outdoor hot tub on the deck overlooking the resort is an experience in itself. We can also book treatments at the chalet for the ultimate pampering, we use the best therapists, physios and masseurs in Val d'Isere.
Perhaps the best thing about Eagle’s Nest though is the authenticity. You need not be an expert in Savoyard antiques (although it helps) to see that the chalet is tastefully and beautifully decorated throughout. The chalet is constructed from antique timbers and every piece of furniture and every painting has been carefully selected for its alpine heritage, true to the roots of the quiet farming village of Val d’Isère.
Service is as important as the property and our Flagship service makes everything easy. Our aim is to ensure that everything happens seamlessly. Champagne is always on ice, cocktails are mixed, skis and lift passes arrive without you noticing and your Scott Dunn driver is waiting for you as you finish your last run. Our speciality is making your stay memorable and special.
Eagle’s Nest is the last word in beautiful alpine luxury.

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.

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).
Eagle's Nest is complemented by our Flagship service. Our team pride themselves on their ability to ensure that every aspect of the service is seamless and to anticipate your every need. Your private chef will serve mouthwatering dishes from a menu tailored to your tastes. Your hosts will manage every aspect of your vacation, from restaurant bookings to ensuring a smart 4x4 vehicle is ready to take you skiing and keeping your glass topped up with a carefully chosen wine or perfectly mixed gin & tonic.
A la carte breakfast is served daily, gourmet dinners are offered on six nights and wine, Champagne and spirits are included. Our driver service is on hand with a fleet of 4x4s to whisk you around the resort.
Above all though, our Flagship service is personal and we will endeavour to make your stay your perfect vacation.

Location & Directions
Val d’Isère, France
Eagle's Nest is in the private enclave of Les Carats overlooking the village and with secure access. It is 300 meters from La Face piste and a 10 minute walk from the village center. 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.
