Chalet Hotel du Montet - Val d'Isere, France
Specially built for us in 2012, this charming Chalet Hotel is our Val d’Isère flagship! It is ideally located in Le Fornet, one of the most picturesque parts of the resort, and provides a fantastic base for those looking to be first on the mountain.
Chalet Hotel du Montet is only approximately 4 minutes’ walk from the main Le Fornet cable-car giving direct access into the Espace Killy ski area, and from the shuttle-bus stop (which runs until midnight / until 2:30am in high season) for the short ride to the resort centre. The regular free ski-bus is also useful in the mornings if you wish to start on the Bellevarde or La Daille areas for a change. At the end of the day, experienced skiers can ski directly back to the hotel via an unpisted track.
The du Montet is actually a top-to-bottom conversion of a traditional stone farmhouse, and where possible – as you can see from our photo above – the owner has left the rustic original stonework exposed. The interior meanwhile has been totally re-fitted to an exacting and extremely stylish standard throughout, with superbly equipped bedrooms, complete with TV/DVD players, iPod/mp3 docking stations and Wi-Fi as well as en suite bathrooms. The fantastic facilities are completed by a spa area, ideal for unwinding after a long day on the mountain.

Afternoon Tea - After a tremendous day’s skiing or snowboarding, return to a hot drink and a selection of freshly baked home-made cakes. Tea and coffee are also available free throughout the day in all Chalet Hotels
‘Culinary Choice’ Dinner - Our Chalet Hotels make dinner a highlight of the day, with our 5 – course menus served six days each week, accompanied by a choice of complimentary quality wines. Dinner starts with canapés and an aperitif, generally served in the lounge/bar, followed by a starter, main course, dessert and a cheese selection to finish. We offer choices for each course, always including a vegetarian option, and ask that you make your selection at breakfast each day, so that our chef’s team can prepare everything fresh for you that evening. Dinner can be as sociable or as private as you wish, with larger tables for groups of friends, old or new, or private tables for more intimate dining for couples if preferred. Vegetarian options are always available to choose from our menu, and other special diets can be catered for at s supplement if booked with us in advance.
One evening each week your Chalet Hotels staff have the evening off, enabling you to choose from one of the local restaurants for that evening’s dinner, which our Resort Representative will be delighted to help you book.
Choice of Quality Wines
Our choice of wines is selected in conjunction with our good friends, Nicolas and Veronique Perret, and their long established Savoie wine business. Nicolas is a qualified ‘Master of Wine’, and has help helped us select two contrasting whites, two choice reds and a rose for you to enjoy, unlimited, throughout dinner each evening.

Our Chalet Hotel Hosts are chosen for their friendly and helpful attitude, whilst our Head Chefs and their teams are professionally trained to provide consistently enjoyable restaurant-standard cuisine.
