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.
One of the newest luxury chalets in Val d'Isère, Chalet Papillon has a superb location and is our nearest chalet to the slopes and close to the center of the resort. It has an indoor swimming pool and hammam. Sleeps 8+2.
Situated in a prime spot just meters from the bottom of the Bellevarde chairlift, Chalet Papillon is a clever blend of authentic alpine architecture with a modern feel. The chalet has been finished to an exceptionally high standard and is characterized by some clever contemporary touches.
Accommodation is thoughtfully spread out over two floors, with two double bedrooms on each level, each with its own en-suite bathroom. Particularly suited to families, the master bedroom has an adjoining bunk room - ideal for two children.
The lower ground floor features the swimming pool and hammam, a welcome haven after an exhilarating day on the slopes. The open living area with separate kitchen takes up the entire top floor, with exceptional mountain views from the floor to ceiling windows and a large balcony.
As the standard of luxury chalets in Val d'Isère reaches a new level, we believe that the incredible location of this chalet coupled with its superb design and finish more than justifies its inclusion in this elite collection.
All the bedrooms are similar in size, with bedroom 1 connecting to the children's bunk room. Each has its own shower and separate WC.
Double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Connects to the bunk room, making it an ideal family option.

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 two 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).

Lohr Family - February 2017 (Guest)
Everyone was great to us as always. Childcare was fantastic especially as this year we had a baby in the party so everyone was at different levels but it worked great and everyone got to have a vacation. The kids club is a big advantage over the other resorts.
