Overview

Fully Catered Ideal for Kids Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Chalet Machrie is a sleek and contemporary chalet apartment, brimming with all the authentic, yet polished, charm of a modern ski lodge. Set in the heart of prestigious resort, Val d’Isère, it offers a sumptuous base, along with a whole host of pampering extras and services for those who wish for a seamless, hassle-free stay.

Set within a traditional style chalet building, it is on the second floor (accessible via lift), and boasts the comfort of being host staffed, as well as offering full catering to the highest standard, including welcome champagne, pre-dinner canapés and three course meals complemented by wine. For those who wish to arrive, rejuvenate, and focus on world-class skiing, in the knowledge that they have a pristine base to return to, this abode has it covered.

This delightful apartment style rental epitomises the ultimate Nordic “hygge” effect - cosy and warming, yet with a luxurious spin - it offers a private sauna, terrace and log-burning fire.

Executed impeccably with ‘chalet-chic’ styling, it offers a timber-clad interior using locally sourced materials. A stunning open-plan living room, dining space and kitchen sets the scene for lively group time, whether it be convening at the end of the day over a delectable meal, or curling up by the fire with a game of cards. With contemporary light fittings and splashes of pillar-box red, faux fur and designer flair, this is more than just another chalet - it offers a little interiors panache along with a cosy, authentic feel.

Exposed wooden ceilings and a very Scandinavian style layout, along with carefully chosen textured fabrics (faux fur rugs, jacquard cushions) and low-hanging lighting will bring a smile to guests’ faces. Eight guests can be accommodated across four impeccably styled bedrooms, featuring crisp quality cotton linen, fluffy towels and en-suites with luxury toiletries.

Chalet Machrie is all about location. Set in a beautiful new complex in the heart of Val d’Isère, this apartment enjoys proximity to excellently maintained slopes and ski infrastructures, as well as bustling village life. The centre of Val d'Isère is where the heart of the resort lies; the beautiful high street offers traditional buildings and magnificent surrounding mountains. Stretching to three miles, the “old town” is where the 17th century church St Bernard is found. Known for offering one of the longest snow seasons, and with ski kudos amongst competitive events, Val d’Isère boasts an impressive 300 km of pistes and 78 lifts.

A buzzing and vibrant winter retreat, Val d’Isère offers up-scale boutiques, restaurants and bars, and intricate ice sculptures can often be seen dotted around the pavements. Two main ski areas are a five minutes walk away, whilst the regular bus service from the Rond Point takes visitors to La Daille and to Le Fornet within minutes, meaning excellent connections and easy access to an array of world-class slopes.

Chalet Machrie is nestled in the centre of Val d’Isère; set in the heart of this charming village it could not be better located. Val d’Isère is in the Savoie region of the French Alps, approaching the Italian border. With the high street so near and a five minute stroll to the main ski lifts, this is a skiers’s dream. Val d’Isère, which connects to the neighbouring Tignes, is especially popular among Brits, and is known for having one of the longest ski seasons

The three mile long village, set within the valley, stretches from the “old town” with its medieval Church, to the bustling high street with its ups-scale boutiques, buzzing après-ski bars and restaurants, the streets often lined with intricate ice-sculptures during the winter months. With beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, traditional stone and wood buildings, this village has an authentic feel along with a cosmopolitan buzz. The nightlife scene has everything from refined bars, to dancing-on-tables establishments.

Val d’Isère caters for all levels, from beginners to experienced off-piste skiers. With an excellent infrastructure, the Solaise gondola was updated for the 2017 season, with a state-of-the-art lift, the new 10 person gondola complex complete with heated seats and wifi. The legendary Face de Bellevarde is a black-rated piste, designed for the 1992 Olympics, it has a 915 metre drop. Home to a number of ski and snowboard events each year, one of the best known being the Critérium de la Première Neige, a Federation Internationale de Ski (FIS) competition in mid-December that has been running since 1955.

The Resort

Val d’Isere is the oldest of the French ski resorts and a gleaming icon at the end of the valley where the residential town lies. Surrounded by what is arguably some of the most beautiful mountain landscape in the world, the chalet village is centred around a charming baroque church. It’s a lovely place for wandering, taking in the cosy atmosphere and spending quality time with your favourite people.

Val d’Isere is composed of three skiing sections. These are La Daille, Val d’Isere centre and Le Fornet, all of which are linked by a free shuttle service. Alongside Tignes, the resort is part of a wider ski area known as Espace Killy, and a lift pass will get you access to its entirety. Ski season in both resorts stretches as long as May. 

Thanks to its high altitude, Val d’Isere is probably your most snow sure option for skiing in the French Alps. The village rests at 1850 metres and its peak on top of the La Grande Motte glacier is 3456 metres high. Sixty per cent of the resort’s pistes are set above 2200 metres, meaning that the skiing is consistently good but on rare occasions, bad weather can cause the slopes to close. It’s also important to keep in mind that Val d’Isere isn’t the best choice if you’re just finding your feet on the snow, and beginners may well find themselves challenged. On the flipside, Val d’Isere is one of the top choices for experienced skiers and snowboarders, with plenty of challenging black runs (such as the iconic Face the Bellevarde, where the 1992 Olympic men’s downhill was run).

And to go with some of the most exciting and picturesque skiing in France, down in the village you’ll find some amazing bars and restaurants. What better way to celebrate conquering that tricky black run than by indulging in some equally entertaining après-ski? On the mountain itself, you can start your evening with DJ’s and live music at La Folie Douce until the lifts close and then work your way into town.

Val d’Isère is an excellent choice for families, despite its prestige within the ski world - being incredibly beginner-friendly. With three beginner areas around the village, little ones have plenty of choice when it comes to building confidence on the slopes. With lessons in French or English, and plenty of added fun activities, this is an ideal place to learn. Either “Le Village” chairlift or “La Savonette” button lift are a great option for children - two free ski lifts in the heart of the village, taking children to the Solaise beginners area.

If they tire of the slopes, there are ample options to try, from snowboarding to sledging, or trying out the ice-rink in the centre of the village. The sports centre in the village has an excellent children’s pool, whilst the options for holiday clubs and high-quality childcare are endless.
