"Seconds from the cable car, this large chalet is ideal for people who want easy access to the slopes. Located in the eponymous hamlet of Le Fornet, five minutes by bus from Val d’Isere town centre, the Chalet du Fornet is a picturesque alpine retreat in a stunningly beautiful part of the Alps."
Chalet du Fornet - Val d'Isere, France
Located in the pretty hamlet of Le Fornet, this chalet offers high quality accommodation in the perfect position. The cable car is just across the road, providing swift access up to the high, snowsure L’Iseran and Pointe du Montet areas, and connecting lifts to the Solaise slopes above Val d’Isere. There is also a ski bus stop (running 8am-midnight, 2am in peak weeks) just outside to take you directly to Val d’Isère’s exciting nightlife.
The chalet is finished to a very high standard with wood wall panelling and authentic wooden floors and all bedrooms have en suite facilities and a balcony.
The lounge area has a large screen satellite TV and opens on to the balcony offering magnificent views from the perfect sun-trap spot on which to enjoy your afternoon tea.
Overall this chalet is perfect for the keen skier who wants a traditional chalet with excellent access to the slopes combined with peace and quiet in the evening, but with the lively centre of Val d’Isere easy to get to whenever you want.

Meal- Chalet du Fornet, 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.
