Val d’Isere Chalet Focus: Chalet Tolima


Most skiers and boarders don’t need much convincing as to the benefits of choosing Val d’Isere as their ski holiday destination. This world-class resort has earned its reputation as one of Europe’s top ski destinations, with terrain for all levels of ability and an après-ski scene to rival the best.

However, Val’s popularity means there are so many accommodation options that it can be difficult to navigate, making it hard to choose which is best for you and your group. In a bid to narrow down your search, we take a look at the superb chalet Tolima, with its ideal location and high standard of mountain living.

 

Chalet Tolima sits just off the main high street in Val, right near a supermarket and just ten minutes’ (flat) walk from the lively resort centre, with its huge choice of shops, bars and restaurants. If you’re saving your legs for the slopes, you can always hop on the free bus to the Solaise and Olympic lifts each morning. Equally, you can catch the bus in the other direction and head for the Funival gondola in La Daille. Either way, reaching both the amenities and the slopes of Val d'isere is quick and hassle-free.

The chalet itself is large and spacious, being sprawled across three levels, yet it still exudes a homely and welcoming atmosphere that is a pleasure to return to after a challenging day on the slopes. The building has been constructed from traditional timber and stone materials, and this classic Savoyard style continues indoors with wood-panelled walls and other rustic touches throughout.

The main living/dining room is particularly inviting, with its beamed ceilings, large comfy sofas to sink into and spectacular open fire. This room also features floor-to-ceiling windows, which allows natural light to flood in and provides access to one of the chalet’s balconies, where stunning mountain views can be enjoyed.

 

All of the Tolima’s bedrooms have modern en-suite or private facilities and are stylish, comfortable and spacious. For optimum comfort, the property also boasts underfloor heating throughout, as well as a sauna to soothe those ski-sore muscles after exciting days on the piste.
