Amelie Chalet, Le Fornet

10+ bedroom Chalet in Val d'Isere. Sleeps 20+

Featured in:

Large catered chalet situated just 50 metres from the Fornet cable car with hot tub

The interior uses traditional wood and stone materials but has been completed in a contemporary style having been constructed in 2007. The spacious living room has a large floor to ceiling sliding doors that give access to the large balcony with fantastic views out over resort. This is a great spot to enjoy an apres ski drink overlooking the pistes.

The stone fireplace in the lounge is perfect for creating a cosy alpine atmosphere during the winter months. Here you can curl up on the comfortable squishy sofas and rest weary limbs at the end of the day.

There is also a hot-tub on the balcony which has recently been added to the chalet and is the perfect place to unwind after a full day on the mountain.

The chalet also features a ski room with boot warmers so those that are keen to get out onto the slopes will easily be able to slip on warm, soft ski boots instead of struggling with tight cold ones.

  • "Great Chalet, great value - Really impressed with this chalet. Great chalet atmosphere and good food. The hosts were friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate us. Location was ideal, with a lift station directly opposite and a bus stop to get into the center of Val for ski lessons first thing in the morning. I will certainly return." - Trip Advisor
