New for 2018/19: The highest hotel in France to open in Val d’Isere

New for 2018/19: The highest hotel in France to open in Val d’Isere

The former cable car station at Solaise has been transformed into a spectacular new ski-in ski-out hotel located at 2551m. Le Refuge de Solaise is the highest hotel in the French Alps and will offer a unique holiday experience in France. This sensational position in Val d'Isere was specifically chosen because of its prime winter-sports location, 360 degree mountain views and the fact that it has the largest sunshine time in the area.

The hotel will only be accessible by the ski slopes and Solaise gondola and will be cut off from the resort once the lifts close – a perfect mountain escape. The location benefits from up to 5 more hours of sunshine than any other accommodations in resort - 2 hours earlier in the morning and 3 hours later in the afternoon than down in the village.

Top features include:

  • Ultimate ski-in ski-out accommodation in Val d’Isere
  • Beautiful spa overlooking the valley
  • Cocktail bar
  • Children playground
  • 300 seat restaurant with panoramic views
  • 6 apartments, 10 rooms & 14 bed dormitory
  • First tracks - guests will be the first in Val d’Isere to enjoy the powder

The location will be ideal for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities, experienced riders will love the quick access to the slopes and getting first tracks while first time skiers will enjoy the easy access to the beginner slopes at Solaise just outside the hotel.

Environmentally friendly

To limit its impact on the environment, the hotel will be self-sufficient in the treatment of its waste during the winter. Non-perishable goods will be transported to the hotel before the winter season to minimise gondola trips and only fresh products will be brought daily to the hotel.


The restaurant will be open to the public for lunch in the ski day. Guests can experience the panoramic views and the delicious traditional cuisine, including fondues and raclettes.
