7 bedrooms for 12-14 guests
1 bath, 5 showers


Bedrooms in order of preference (in our opinion)

Bedroom 1
Twin/double (14’9″ x 9’6″) on ground floor. Shower and separate wc.

Bedroom 2
Twin/double (13’10” x 9’6″) on ground floor with shower and separate wc.

Bedroom 3
Twin/double (14′ x 9’4″) on ground floor with shower and separate wc.

Bedroom 4
Double (20′ x 10′ in the widest part of the room) L-shaped room on ground floor with a double bed and an extra single bed suitable only for a child. Large bathroom with bath and separate wc.

Bedroom 5
Twin/double (16′ x 9’10”) on ground floor with an extra single bed suitable only for a child. Shower and wc.

Bedrooms 6 and 7
These rooms are in the first floor annexe (with separate outside entrance). Bedroom 6 is a double (10’6″ x 9′) and Bedroom 7 is a single (13′ x 8’6″), and they share a shower and wc. Together they can be used by a maximum of two people – ie. as two singles or one double (room 6 with room 7 empty). When booked individually (not as a whole chalet), room 7 has a £150 discount. It is possible to put two adults and one child in the annexe (when the whole chalet is booked) so long as only one of the extra beds in the main chalet is being used. The child’s price is then 50% of full price.

Sitting/Dining Room
(21′ x 28′ excluding open-plan kitchen) on first floor. Huge picture windows onto west-facing balcony. Log fire. WiFi.

Extra Beds
Extra beds are available when one party books the whole chalet. There is a single bed in each of Bedrooms 4 and 5 suitable for one or two children and also the possibility of two adults and one child sleeping in the annexe (rooms 6 and 7). However only two extra beds which must be used by children, are possible making a total of 14 guests.  The cost for these extra beds is 50% of the quoted Lucaval price (subject to a minimum price of £450). No child discounts are given when using extra beds.

This is a beautiful, brand new seven-bedroom chalet in a perfect position, just seconds from the pistes.

Chalet Lucaval already existed, but over summer 2019 it was entirely rebuilt. Almost nothing remains of the old chalet, which was already very comfortable. The new chalet is bigger and smarter. The people who did the work are the company responsible for most of Val d’Isère’s high-end developments in recent years, such as our chalets Ptarmigan, Perdrix and Pic Noir, and it is very special indeed.

All that hasn’t changed is its position. Part of the very exclusive La Légettaz area above the Club Med, Lucaval is precisely 20 seconds’ walk from the edge of the skiing (we timed it). At the start of the day you make the easy glide across the M piste to the Solaise or Olympique bubbles, the Rogoney charlift or the Légettaz poma, or our favourite, the Bellevarde Express chair. And at the end of the day, you ski from Solaise to 50m from the chalet. If it doesn’t suit you to finish up on Solaise, the Rogoney chair is always the last lift to close, making it possible to traverse home from every direction and the free Train Bleu bus stops just by the chalet.

For après-skiers, Lucaval is six minutes’ walk from the very smart Étincelle restaurant, or ten from the slightly less smart Cocorico après-ski club. (We never trust these “just a few seconds…” sales pitches, but it certainly won’t take you longer. It was paced out by a pensioner in heavy snowboots. OK, he wasn’t pushing a double buggy through a foot of powder with a leg in plaster, but he’s not Usain Bolt either…)

We are no longer able to provide a YSE Land Rover service between the chalet and the slopes. Instead Taxi Raffi will run a taxi shuttle to ferry you from the chalet to the slopes in an eight-seater minibus, for 20-30€ per ride. They will also bring you home from any point in Val d’Isère, run you to shops or restaurants, etc., for the same price. You book and pay for your taxis in Val d’Isère, so there’s no need to decide in advance whether you and your party want this optional service. Taxi Raffi taxis will be available every day except busy Saturdays.

Lucaval has five gorgeous bedrooms in the main part of the chalet, each with its own bath or shower and separate wc, except Bedroom 4, which has a really nice free-standing bath and separate loo. Bedroom 4 and 5 each have an extra single child’s bed.

Bedrooms 6 and 7 are in an annexe attached to the back of the main building and a minute’s walk around it from the front door. It has two bedrooms and a single shower room with loo. Bedroom 6 has a double bed, bedroom 7 a single, and these rooms can accommodate a maximum of two people using the rooms either as two singles, or one double room (when used as a double, the single room is then just a convenient dressing room). We love the annexe. And the option of two single beds or one double bed is perfect for people who sleep together and people who don’t, people who think they might or swear they won’t… Room 7 has a discount of £150 when rooms 6 and 7 are booked individually.

Chalet Lucaval can be booked for 12 people and the organiser will receive 50% off one holiday.
