Built especially for YSE, this five bedroom, five bathroom, ski-in and practically ski-out chalet with hot tub, sauna and private lift, is one of our very favourites. 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. The dining table was 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 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, extra shower and wc, and table tennis table.

What we like best is the location. The Chalet de Pierre overlooks the charming hamlet of Le Laisinant from a position just beneath the Traversée du Laisinant piste. The six-seater express chairlift, two minutes’ walk below, is a superbly convenient way to start the day’s skiing in either the Fornet or Solaise ski areas. It was intended to serve a new hotel which never got built, so hardly anyone takes it except Chalet de Pierre guests. We’ve not yet seen a queue, and we’ve rarely seen a full chair! You don’t have to be a good skier to return to the chalet via the L or Mattis pistes, and the ski bus stops 200m away, with both Le Fornet and the main village a couple of stops.

We recently added a hot tub, just outside the dining room, with splendid views across the main village of Val d’Isère and the often illuminated Face de Bellevarde.
