La Moraine

6 bedrooms for 9-12 guests

2 bath(s), 1 shower(s)

"The whole week was near faultless and we appreciate the attention to detail that you as a company show. The kids had a week they will never forget." (Mr P, London)


La Moraine is one of the oldest chalets in Val d’Isère, with the traditional extended wall and pillar, which support the whole tree trunks, which support the slabs of granite, which support the twenty feet of snow, which support one of the longest seasons in the Alps.


The chalet has, of course, been entirely rebuilt inside. It has a charming sitting-dining room under the rafters, with a wide balcony facing Solaise. This room always seems to generate a very friendly atmosphere, perhaps because of the good food that comes from its state-of-the-art kitchen, perhaps because it isn’t huge and doesn’t have a TV, forcing people to re-invent the ancient art of conversation (though it does have WiFi). Maybe it’s just the unlimited wine.


La Moraine has six pleasant bedrooms: two twins which have views towards Solaise, a double room with its own en-suite washbasin, and three single bedrooms, a rarity in Val d'Isère. Two of these single rooms actually have a large double bed, while the third has a single bed plus a second bed up a ladder. When one party fills the whole chalet, the guests in any or all three of the single rooms can bring an extra person at half price. Please note that flight seats may be limited on certain dates, especially at peak season.


There are two baths, one shower and three wcs.


La Moraine is in the little hamlet of Le Joseray, opposite our chalet Les Gnellets. The lifts, the pistes and the main bus stops are all at most three minutes’ walk away, and you can ski back to within about 100m. Yet the only sound at night is an occasional moo from the neighbours.


  • Lovely conversion of a very old chalet.
  • Excellent living room under rafters, with state-of-the-art kitchen.
  • WiFi.
  • Wide, sunny balcony with view straight up Solaise.
  • Three single bedrooms so lots of flexibility as to who sleeps where.
  • Good ratio of smart bedrooms.
  • Boot warmers.
  • Ground floor flat below the chalet, occasionally used by owners.
  • In hamlet of Le Joseray, opposite YSE chalet Les Gnellets, three minutes’ walk from lifts, pistes and bus, six from centre.
  • Due to the proximity to neighbouring chalets, La Moraine is not suitable for loud groups.
  • A chef and an assistant, who live out.
