Ski Bus Stop:
This chalet is only available to guests booking the whole chalet for sole use.
Grand Torsaï is the smaller of our two chalets in Le Fornet. It is slightly beyond and above La Couchire (forty-five seconds beyond, to be precise, along the same underground passages, and fifty steps above, though with the ski locker and boot warmers sensibly at the bottom). If you have already read the description of neighbouring chalet La Couchire, you’ll have read all about what a great place Le Fornet is. In a nutshell, the highest and emptiest pistes, the best powder, the Pissaillas Glacier with its exhilarating blue and red runs, and much of the area’s off-piste are all reached via the cable car, two minutes from this chalet. So are two of the best mountain restaurants, the Signal and Edelweiss, as well as the brand new La Cascade restaurant up on the glacier. The hamlet of Le Fornet itself is the prettiest part of Val d’Isère, and has more excellent restaurants.
Should you wish to go into the village centre, to the nursery slopes or the shops, the free bus stops just outside the chalet until after midnight, and you can reach the nursery slopes or nightlife as fast as people staying in the village centre.Grand Torsaï is around eight years old, really pretty and very pleasantly finished.The split-level sitting-dining room is the heart of the chalet, in particular the large square dining table and the vast picture windows. Romantics appreciate the sunniest views in Val d’Isère, stretching from dawn over the Galise, on the border with Italy, to dusk beyond Bellevarde. Non-romantics can log onto the web via WiFi or watch a DVD.
