Val d’Isère, France / Les Barmes De l'Ours

At the foot of the famous Bellevarde Olympic ski run, this charming chalet-style hotel characterises the epitome of luxury in Val d’Isere, combining a superb slope-side location and an outstanding spa. Just a short walk from the lively village, each of the hotel’s four levels offers a contrasting style of accommodation – Alpine Chalet, Contemporary, American Lodge and Scandinavian.

Restaurant choices include La Rôtisserie for slope-side dining on the terrace, raclette and fondue at Le Coin Savoyard and fine dining at La Table de l’Ours. Afterwards, retire for digestifs in the cosy lounge with crackling log fire. Bibliophiles and art lovers will also appreciate the hotel’s collection of literary works and ski-themed paintings. Recreational amenities include one of the Alps’ largest spas with eleven treatment rooms, heated indoor pool, Jacuzzi, hammam and fitness gym, an in-house ski rental boutique and a bowling alley and a Kids Club. During peak school holidays, families will appreciate the animator and activities program at the Kids Club.
