Les Chardons Reviews
No reviews yet
We have taken over Les Chardons, a sweet little family hotel in one of the best positions in Val d'Isère. Les Chardons is ten seconds' walk from the church, at the very heart of Val d'Isere's quaint and quiet old village. It is mere metres from the snow square, nursery slopes, drag lifts, ski schools, ski shops, bus stops, hairdresser, baker and candle-stick maker. Guests here will spend more time skiing, eating and drinking and less time travelling around than anyone else in Val d'Isère. Very few people and even fewer vehicles use this road, and it really is astonishingly silent. Even the church clock doesn't chime at night. Inside, the chalet is much more comfortable than one might imagine from its slightly plain exterior. Our first guests have been bowled over by how nice it is.
The dining room has always been charming. We just removed the net curtains, table cloths and aspidistra, and put in good, solid, wooden tables and an industrial strength Nespresso machine! There are big tables for chatty people and little tables for grumpy people, and they all fit together, so if you meet other grumpy people during the week, we'll join the tables and you can all be grumpy together. Our regular star chef Scottish (so known because of all the Scotts we have employed, he is the only actual Scot) is leading a team in the professional kitchen which aims not just to match the food in our smaller chalets, but surpass it. We'll see...
The sitting room is full of deep sofas, and we've left the former bar so that guests can keep their own drinks in its fridges. We'll get the hooch in if you like. We'll even pour it. But you drink it! It's all at supermarket prices. There is no cheaper or more convenient way in the Alps to develop cirrhosis.Chalet Les Chardons is unique in Val d'Isère: a large chalet for keen skiers who are also keen foodies. It is selling out very quickly.
