Make A Holiday Rental Chalet in Le Fornet, France, Your Home Away From Home

Le Fornet is one of three villages that make up the Val d’Isere skiing area in the Rhone-Alpes region of France. In actual fact, you will find that your holidays in Le Fornet will be based in the village that is farthest from Val d’Isere and this lends itself to an opportunity to either relax and unwind or join in the numerous activities on your doorstep - the choice is yours. The self catering accommodation in this part of France is reputed to be of a very high standard. This is an exclusive skiing destination and the quaint alpine lodges and chalets will never fail to impress.

Things to Do on Holiday in Le Fornet, France

Your holidays in Le Fornet are going to tend to steer towards winter sports. Le Fornet and the other villages in The Val d’Isere Valley are totally geared-up towards welcoming their guests and ensuring they spend the best time. There are over 300km of skiing piste available to you in this area and no less that 100 lifts to carry you up to the top of these snowy hills. These villages have some excellent aprés-ski facilities and the bars and restaurants are frequented often by the rich and famous. Great shopping opportunities exist here too, but be mindful of rather extortionate price tags at times as the area tries to capitalise on its well-heeled market. 

Places to Visit on Holiday in Le Fornet, France

If you are hankering to escape this charming part of France for the day, why not lock up your gorgeous rental chalet in Le Fornet and head south-west across the border into Italy. Around a two hour drive will bring you to the famous city of Turin, in The Piedmont Region of the country. There are plenty of distractions to occupy you in this fascinating city and top of this list must be the famous Shroud of Turin. Other interesting attractions include The Mole Anatonelianna: this is a very peculiar building that has to be seen to be believed and it even includes a great museum. For the real charm and quintessential Turin, head to Piazzo Castello where you will be in the heart of the main tourist area.

Weather in Le Fornet, France

For your holidays in Le Fornet, you’re probably wondering what sort of weather you can expect? Well, this will all depend on the season in which you travel. Winters are typically cold and snowy; but then, this is what you’d expect from a winter sports resort. Summers are much warmer and temperatures can reach into the low-twenties degrees Celsius. Precipitation is higher here than many other parts of France, but this is due mainly to the elevation above sea level.

Travel to Le Fornet, France

                                            We had a great holiday at this chalet. The apartment is very cosy and comfortable with the classic mountain style. We would be very much interested in staying at this chalet again.

                                            The property is located in the center of Val d'Isere with great access to the slopes. The property has a good amount of space and managed to accommodate five adults. Would recommend, good value for money. The good * Great location * Good amount of space * Comfortable beds * Has an oven * Cheap * Good shower * Plenty of cooking equipment The bad * Unwelcoming staff * Tiny ski locker - Only provided with one locker, was a struggle to fit 5 skis in * No free wifi

                                            Beautifully appointed chalet

                                            5 of 5
                                            We spent a wonderful week in the triplex apartment, which is beautifully appointed, and very well situated. Le Fornet is a charming and very quiet village - no shops there, but the bus service to Val is very efficient. We never waited more than 5-10 minutes, including in the evening, and the trip takes 7 or so mins. Despite the poor snow coverage it is possible to ski right up to the chalet, by going 200m or so off piste from the blue run (very easy). The skiing was lovely, with access to the Pissaillas Glacier from Le Fornet téléphérique, a 10 min walk away. The chalet itself is lovely with a log fire, and beautiful sauna and hot tub. The kitchen is very well equipped. The local restaurant l'Arolay is great - booking well ahead of time is essential. Hoping to go back next year...
