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 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.
Enjoying one of the best locations in Val d'Isere, close to the slopes, Chalet Shar Pei is a luxury chalet with an indoor swimming pool and hammam. With a large top floor balcony, the chalet has stunning views of the mountains and resort. Sleeps 8+2.
Chalet Shar Pei is a luxury chalet in one of Val d'Isere's best locations - just steps away from the Bellevarde chairlift. Spacious and light filled, it enjoys views towards the Face and Solaise, and is sophisticatedly designed and furnished, mixing contemporary and traditional styles.
To take advantage of its great location and exceptional views, the chalet's living area is on the top floor. French doors lead out onto a terrace, which comes into its own on blue sky days. Plenty of seating and shutters into the kitchen where you can watch the chef create your dinner, make this a very sociable room. It is fabulously designed, being glazed on almost three sides and with a good sized fire.
Below on the first floor are the master bedroom and another large double, both of which can easily fit cots. The remaining rooms are on the entrance level, with a double featuring a separate bunk room, giving a family lots of private space. A further double/twin is on this floor. All the rooms are en-suite with walk in showers (the master the only room to feature a bath), and we love that you can see Val d'Isere whilst lying in bed. The swimming pool and hammam are on the lower ground floor, and even the pool has views through patio doors on one side.
Chalet Shar Pei has four bedrooms, with bedroom three featuring a separate bunk room. With walk in showers and a bath in the master suite, all the rooms are well-appointed, spacious and have large wardrobes. All of them have views over Val d'Isere.
The master bedroom on the first floor, is the only room to feature a bath as well as a walk in shower. There is plenty of space for a cot, and there are two large wardrobes.
Bedroom 2 on the first floor, can be a double or a twin. It has a good sized en-suite with large walk in shower, and the room has space for a cot, and a large wardrobe.
Bedroom 3 on the ground floor can be a double or a twin. Spacious and well-appointed, it has a separate bunk room that shares the en-suite shower room.
The built in bunks in this room are a children's dream. This room shares the en-suite walk in shower room of bedroom 3.
Bedroom 4 on the ground floor is a double that can also work as a twin. It has good wardrobe space and a en-suite large walk in 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 Centre 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).

This chalet is just amazing! It has been brand newly built, and what a good job they have done. Its location is spot on, arguably the best in Val d'Isere, the finish combines contemporary style with Alpine comfort. I think any guest looking for any sort of ski holiday would be more than impressed by this fantastic chalet. Keen skiers are right by the slopes, non-skiers are close to the centre, families have ideal room set-ups, groups of friends have ample communal space and the funky wellness area will be loved by all!
