Torchlight processions down the legendary Face de Bellevarde set an atmospheric tone to a stay at one of the newest five-star hotels in Val d’Isère, Le Yule. With just 41 rooms and suites, this boutique hotel opened in December 2015 and has an enviable location close to the village’s upmarket restaurants, shops and galleries.
Settle into vintage Scandinavian style in the mostly south-facing rooms and family suites; all of the rooms offer outstanding views across the pistes in this ski-in location just a few steps from the ski lifts and nursery slopes of the Olympic Bellevarde and Solaise slopes. Catch the rays on the sun-kissed terrace of the welcoming restaurant Le Solstice, also the setting for sophisticated evening dining by a roaring fire.
Evenings are congenial in the fire-warmed surroundings of the intimate Lounge Bar, serving elegant cocktails and delicious hot drinks. Spa NUXE has an indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi with staggering Bellevarde vistas from the picture windows, together with a muscle-soothing hammam and sauna. There’s a games room for children and an in-house ski shop to cater for all your equipment needs and to ensure you maximise your time on the mountain.
