Built especially for YSE four years ago, this five bedroom, five bathroom, ski-in, ski-out chalet with sauna, gym and private lift, is one of the smartest in Val d’Isère. The good-sized bedrooms have small but tasteful bathrooms. More importantly, each room has a pair of decent-sized beds that fit together to make a huge double if your holiday is going well, or slide apart if it isn’t. And better still, the rooms have picture windows giving breathtaking views of sunrise over the Galise, or sunset behind Bellevarde.

The sitting-dining room under the hefty rafters, with its open-plan kitchen, is vast. In a village where a coffee table’s worth of property can sell for £20,000, it is amazing to find so much space.

The table has been hand-made to our specifications: three diners on the longer sides, two on the ends. That’s the way to get a good conversation going! Mealtimes are accompanied by an unforgettable view of Bellevarde.

At the other end of the room there’s an equally spectacular view across the bottom of the lovely, smooth L piste and up to the glaciers of the Italian border, to be enjoyed from big, squashy sofas around the log fire. When it gets dark, there’s a flat-screen TV and a selection of DVDs. Or just use the WiFi.

On the ground floor, between the front door and the private lift which whisks you to the bedroom floor or the living room floor, are the ski room, boot warmers, sauna and gym (cross trainer, cycling and rowing machines – just what you need after eight hours’ skiing. Please see photo.).

But what we like best is the position. The chalet dominates the charming little hamlet of Le Laisinant, just five minutes’ walk or one stop on the free bus past the edge of the main village, from a position just beneath the Traversée du Laisinant piste.

You don’t have to be a good skier to return to the chalet from the bottom of the L or Mattis pistes, while the never-crowded six-seater Laisinant Express chairlift is two minutes’ walk, or a quick pole away. The Laisinant Express was already the quickest way into the Fornet ski area, and now a new run takes skiers straight into the Solaise area, making this chairlift a superbly convenient way to start the day’s skiing.

Please note that the use of the sauna in Chalet de Pierre is at your own risk (and that of your party members). YSE cannot accept responsibility for any accidents/injuries that occur during the use of the sauna. Children must be supervised when using the sauna.
