Hotel Barmes de l'Ours

Opened in December 2004, this hotel is a welcome addition to Val d’Isere – a resort lacking in top hotels. With 26 suites and 49 rooms, it is the largest five-star and the most expensive – with prices more like Courchevel – but with spacious rooms, a stylish bar and a state-of-the-art spa (one of the largest in the French Alps) it offers more exclusive accommodation than its rivals. There are 3 restaurants to choose from offering traditional French regional cuisine, fondues or the Pas de l’Ours rotisserie which is also open at lunch time, with a slope-side terrace – and you can choose to stay on a half-board or bed & breakfast basis. The current manager spent 6 years at Hotel Les Airelles in Courchevel 1850 and the young, enthusiastic team offer an excellent level of service.

Val d'Isère

Val d'Isère has access to the best all-around ski area in the world, the Espace Killy. With just over 100 lifts compared to the 300 to be found in the Trois Vallées, the Espace Killy is obviously not the largest ski area in the world, but size isn’t everything and this region has as much skiing as one could ever need, not to mention the longest winter in the Alps. (The winter ski season here begins in late November and continues until early May and conditions are seldom disappointing).

The main centre of Val d'Isère has been virtually rebuilt over the past 25 years and many of the buildings are imaginative contemporary interpretations of the traditional stone and Savoyard style wood structures.

Ski holidays to Val d'Isère were revolutionised with the introduction of après-ski in the 80s, when Dick Yates-Smith set up the seminal bar-nightclub known as Dicks Tea-Bar.
