Average time to visit
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.
Chalet Mathilda epitomizes the modern luxury ski chalet. Combining Savoyard authenticity with contemporary luxury, Mathilda features an indoor swimming pool and hammam and is located on the private estate of Les Fermes de Val d'Isère. Sleeps 10 + 2.
When chalet Mathilda was completed in 2005, a new standard of luxury ski vacations was set. Service akin to that of a five star hotel and wellness facilities including an indoor swimming pool and steam room were combined in a brand new, spacious and chic private chalet.
Mathilda commands a place among the very best chalets in Val d'Isère and the Alps by virtue of size, facilities, quality of finish and the style that stands the test of time, combining traditional Alpine style with the clean and crisp influences of today. Chalet Mathilda features not only an indoor swimming pool with jet stream but also a hammam.
On the ground floor is the fabulous wellness area with indoor swimming pool with jet stream and hammam (steam room). The sixth bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk in dressing room is located on this floor.
On the first floor are four bedrooms all with private bathrooms decorated with fine Italian tiles and crisp white porcelain. The bedrooms and living room feature a wealth of beams and panels of old reclaimed wood, which makes them truly unique.
On the second floor, an authentic stone fireplace complements the spacious open plan living room and dining room and a large sun terrace adds to this already impressive area. The panoramic windows make the most of the dazzling alpine scenery. On the top floor is the fifth en-suite bathroom which is delight. Full of character and romance, it sits alone beneath the eaves and feels like staying in an original alpine chalet.
Service in Mathilda is personal yet professional and our team will go out of their way to ensure you have the perfect skiing vacation. The food will be tailored to your personal tastes by your private chef and will be well matched to our delicious house wines.
Located only a short walk or very short drive from the center of Val d'Isère, yet in a private and peaceful estate, Chalet Mathilda offers the very best in chalet skiing vacations and will suit both adult groups and families perfectly. All of our chalets are non-smoking inside.
Chalet Mathilda has six bedrooms all featuring traditional wooden beams and Moroccan style ceilings. Four of the six bedrooms are on the first floor, making it ideal for families as parents and children can have neighboring rooms. All bedrooms have TVs with UK channels, and the spacious master suite benefits from both bath and separate shower.

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 Center 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).
Parkhouse Party - January 2019 (Guest)
The chalet was immaculate. Mari was superb - nothing was too much trouble and she pre-empted all our wishes perfectly. A true asset to the company. Macca was super friendly and knowledgeable and very accommodating with all our quirky dietary requirements! The drivers were all friendly, chatty, helpful, carrying skis, especially as it was often icy outside the chalet. The childcare team were phenomenal- all lovely, kind, the kids loved to see them and appeared to have great days each day. The only thing I would have liked was a few more picture from their days!
O'Connor Family - February 2017 (Guest)
The whole vacation was excellent. First class service from all the staff we encountered. The food prepared by our Chef, Dave, was faultless. The driver service was great, a real highlight of the vacation. Our stay in Val couldn't have been better, thank you! The food, the service and the whole experience was a level above anything we've had on vacation before, 10/10.
Kirsty Edwards (Staff)
This is fantastic chalet for a multi-generational ski vacation, with plenty of space for everybody. Having a pool in the chalet is an absolute treat for anyone with kids, they just love it. Mathilda is so conveniently positioned - just a few mins to the main snowfront and lift base and a short stroll to the shops and restaurants in the heart of Val.
The service in the chalet was top notch - our chef Nico was passionate and creative with the food he produced - all so delicious - whilst our host Lucy was charming and friendly and we really felt that nothing was too much trouble for either of them. A proper vacation for grandparents, parents and kids!
Georgina Carlisle (Staff)
Mathilda has a beautiful and spacious living area with enough space for two families or a large group of friends. The chalet has a fabulous wellness center with a lovely blue tiled swimming pool. The chalet is in a peaceful location from the village center but only a short distance for those who want to pop in rather than ski.
