Description

Amadeus occupies the spacious top floor of our new 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. It has four excellent en-suite bedrooms – one slightly the master bedroom, because it has both a bath and a shower, one faintly less des res, because the loo is just outside 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 more spacious 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 on sunny days, and a log fire for dark evenings. There is a sauna to assuage any aching muscles, and a lift, which should prevent them in the first place.

And who was Amadeus? The history of the Savoie is so exciting one could happily spend a week here just reading it up, but if you decide you might go skiing instead, the free buses towards both La Daille and Le Fornet stop just outside, and the main lifts are two stops away or a three or four minute walk. There are ski shops, ski schools, excellent restaurants and popular bars all around.

So you probably won’t spend much time researching Amadeus, but if you are curious, there have been a lot of them, variously Counts and Dukes of Savoy, over the past thousand years and right up to the present. 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!
