Chalet Amadeus Description

Chalet Amadeus occupies the spacious top floor of our Comtes de Savoie building, perfectly situated in the centre of Val d’Isère, just a few paces off the main road, but on a very peaceful courtyard. Light sleepers think they’ve gone to Heaven. And so do keen skiers: the rapid chairs up Bellevarde and Solaise are a mere three or four minute walk, but if your boots weren’t made for walking, the free buses towards both La Daille and Le Fornet stop just outside, and the main lifts are a couple of stops away. There are ski shops, ski schools, excellent restaurants and popular bars all around.

Amadeus has four very comfortable en-suite bedrooms – one arguably the master bedroom, because it has both a bath and a shower, one faintly less des res, because the loo is just outside the bedroom door and its window is a skylight. We considered charging a few pounds more for Room 1 and giving a few quid off Room 4, but it was a lot of arithmetic to come out at the same price. You’ll know which couple in your party will need both the bath and the shower, lest they argue…

The apartment is lighter and roomier than most accommodation in the very heart of the village, and decorated in a restrained, sober style that will appeal to those of us unimpressed by too many knick-knacks or bric-a-brac. It has good views south to Solaise, and a log fire in the evening. There is a sauna to assuage any aching muscles, and a lift, which should prevent them in the first place. There are ski lockers and boot warmers, and recently upspeeded wifi (and if that word doesn’t exist, it should!).

The maximum number of guests we can accommodate in Chalet Amadeus is eight, or nine if there are babies.

There is a car park under the building and we have three spaces which can be booked in advance at £75 per space per week, on a first come first served basis.

So who was Amadeus? The history of the Savoie is so exciting one could happily spend a week here just reading it up, but in a nutshell there have been a lot of Amadeuses over the past thousand years and right up to the present – variously Counts and Dukes of Savoy. Italy gave the Savoie to France in 1861, and the line of counts and dukes was supposed to end, but needless to say it didn’t, and needless to say there are still two men claiming to be the Duc de Savoie!
