The new Résidence du Savoie on the main street is looking resplendent in the October sun today. Our chalets Pic Noir, Perdrix and Ptarmigan occupy the floor behind the third line of balconies from the top, two levels above the famous Fondue Factory.
People keep asking us for some interior photos, but with five weeks to go until the resort opens, the furniture is still waiting in the basement, the decorators are putting the final touches to the paintwork, the lights haven't been fixed in place yet, and the parquet is protected under great sheets of cardboard.
So for the moment any interior pictures would just show a box full of workmen, which might appeal to Men's Health readers, but wouldn't reassure prospective guests very much. Just take it from us: our smartest-ever chalets are well on schedule and are going to be the best places to stay in the whole of Val d'Isère...
