Chalet Chardon:

"Chalet Le Chardon, the views are sensational...probably the best chalet in town." Sean Newsom, The Sunday Times.

Le Chardon is undoubtedly one of the most desirable and exclusive ski chalets 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 two separate living areas, large TV room, study 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 a recommended highly trained physiotherapist 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.


The chalet is easily accessible from the Solaise pistes and the nursery slopes in the morning. However, you could choose to be driven to the main lifts 2 mins. Centre of town is a mere 2 min chauffeur drive away or a 10 minute stroll,
