Amazing architectural wonder!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe this incredible Chateau. The picturesque stone chateau sits alone on a hill across from the Laisinant chair lift at the most choice end of Val d’Isere, very near the old town of Fornet. The father of the owner lovingly restored the old stone and heavy timber structure during the late 60’s – 70’s. The result is the coolest most architecturally hip and authentic ‘Sonny & Cher’ love shack that one could ever imagine. Fabrice the owner has had much to do with completing this masterpiece - adding all of the most unique furnishings and art, which give it the most unique and tasteful cool factor. I cannot wait to return with my family and hope that it does become in so high demand that is fully booked years in advance. I am myself an architect, and this place is truly special. Of course, Fabrice is a fabulous host and provides just the right amount of service/ local knowledge to make for the most pleasant stay. It was an honor to spend time here and I thank him for sharing it with us.

Incredible, stand alone, Chalet in Laisenant

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful, cool, spacious chalet. 3 fabulous double rooms en suite and two 'three bunk beds'. Double bedrooms amazing and the two bunk rooms fun and very comfortable, great for children but equally good for adults. Sitting room and dining room incredible with amazing views of Val Disere and TV's, CD's games etc etc. Kitchen brilliantly kitted out and although you can't eat in it, it was big enough for all of us to stand and chat. Beautifully clean with a daily maid and baguettes and croissant delivered for breakfast, every morning. Fabrice could not have been more helpful. Would absolutely stay here again and highly recommend although you need to be aware that it is not in the centre of town and you would be sensible to have a car, however we did walk into town and it's a lovely 25 minute stroll. The buses were amazing and did stop outside the chalet when asked. The proper bus stop is 300 yards away. The most incredible staircase takes you into the chalet which isn't great for elderly guests but we loved it! Having noticed this chalet for the last twenty years it was a real treat to actually stay here. Highly recommend and we will be back! Thank you Fabrice

Super original

  • 5 of 5

C'est un endroit magique . Rien à voir avec les chalets classiques . La déco est perso et de très bon goût , on s'est senti "chez nous" ! .

On était assez près du centre de la station pour les restos et les boutiques et le super marché livre à domicile.

Nous sommes allés skier directement sans passer par le centre , c'était super .
