Val d’Isère is at the heart of the Espace Killy with an excellent snow record and is served by one of the most modern lift networks in Europe. The resort is renowned for its luxury accommodation, gourmet restaurants and vibrant nightlife.
Born in 1934, Val d’Isère has since grown beyond all recognition and is now one of the world’s most prestigious and sought after ski resorts. Val d’Isère links with the neighboring resort of Tignes and offers easy access to more than 300km of beautifully groomed pistes, plus a wealth of challenging off-piste runs and itineraries. Val d’Isère offers something for all levels of skiers and boasts an enviable infrastructure that is constantly being improved and upgraded.
Known also for its Après Ski, the resort boasts an ever improving range of après-ski bars and restaurants offering gastronomic delights and regional Savoyard dishes. Val d'Isère comes alive at night as its many dazzling bars and night clubs which provide party goers with a festive atmosphere into the early hours.
Le Chardon is undoubtedly one of the most desirable and exclusive lodges in Val d'Isere. Resting elegantly on the side of the Solaise Mountain, it is a haven for keen skiers of all abilities. Each of its ten en-suite bedrooms has floor to ceiling windows offering uninterrupted views of the Manchet Valley and Vanoise National Park.
With a large open living area, large TV room and dining room Le Chardon is the ideal location for larger groups and corporate parties to soak up the magical atmosphere. The large private terrace is a fantastic place to hold fabulous barbecues while, in the right conditions, drinks are served from a hand crafted snow bar. A perfect way to mix business with pleasure.
After an active day on the slopes, choose to relax in one of the two private hot tubs with a glass of champagne or for the more energetic a splash around in the 18ft swim spa. Alternatively you may choose to indulge in a full body massage from one of our highly trained physiotherapists or to curl up in front of the open log fire with a good book. All this before you enjoy a five course culinary experience from our acclaimed head chef, served in the newly extended dining room overlooking the Manchet Valley.
