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, the free Train Bleu bus stops just by the chalet, and from 17.30 until 20.00 our own Land Rover shuttle runs from the Tourist Office to the door.

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…)

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.
