"The Bandire is a snowball throw from the main Le Fornet cable car, giving you immediate access to skiing, the skiing above the Col de L’Iseran and up to the Glacier de Pissaillas. The glacier is one of two places in the Espace Killy where you can ski during the summer, which indicates just how snow sure a resort this is. There is an efficient resort bus service to whisk you to Val D’Isere town centre from outside the chalet, for access to other lifts and for going out in the evening. The Bandire itself is a characterful chalet with an unpretentious interior, making a great base for a week in Val d’Isere."
Chalet Bandire - Val D'Isere, France
The Bandire is now a favourite for guests, with its absolutely prime location and comfortable interiors making a winning combination. Directly opposite the main Le Fornet cable car, only 30m from the end of the ski run and with a ski bus stop just outside for accessing other ski lifts and the resort centre, plus two good restaurants with 3 minutes walk, the Bandire is hard to beat for a perfectly located chalet.
Traditionally built and attractively furnished, the Bandire makes a comfortable home and offers fully en suite bedrooms for all.
Val d’Isère’s excellent resort shuttle service runs until midnight (2am during peak weeks), so après ski access to and from the centre, just a short ride away, is both quick and convenient.

Meals - Chalet Bandire, Val D'Isere
We set very high standards for our cuisine, and train our staff extensively before the season starts, to ensure that you will thoroughly enjoy every meal on your own holiday with us. We also take our Health and Safety responsibilities extremely seriously, so all our chalet and Chalet Hotel staff during the pre-season training course are trained to the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health’s Level 2 in Food Safety*. For six days of the week our staff prepare all your meals, as described below.
A good breakfast is essential on a ski holiday, so we provide both a cooked breakfast including your choice of bacon, eggs, sausages and beans, as well as a continental selection with a choice of cereals or porridge, fruit juices, plentiful tea, coffee and bread (and croissants in France), cold meats, cheese and preserves, which is normally presented buffet-style for you to help yourself. On our staff’s one day off a week, only the continental breakfast will be provided.
The traditional ‘welcome home’ after a day on the slopes will be laid out for you in your chalet or Chalet Hotel, ready for your return, every day except on the staff’s one day off per week. A good cup of tea or coffee is the perfect accompaniment to a delicious slice of freshly home-baked cake and keeps hungry skiers happy until dinner is ready. As an added benefit for guests in our Chalet Hotels, our chefs prepare a selection of cakes for afternoon tea.
Children’s High Tea
In Chalets and Chalet Hotels with family guests, High Tea provides children under 13 years with a healthy menu, tailored more towards children’s tastes and puréed food is available for infants on request. High Tea is at 5.30pm, and children do not join the main adult-only dinner.
Dinner in Chalets
A tasty and innovative, freshly cooked dinner will be prepared for you six nights per week by your Chalet Host – or by an experienced and professional chef in our larger chalets – and served with a choice of wines. Our four-course adult-only chalet dinners start with canapés and an apéritif, followed by an appetiser, main course and dessert, and completed by coffee with chocolates to round off your evening. Your choice of complimentary quality wines is unlimited during the meal service, and freshly chilled water is also of course always available.
