Chalet Orca / Val d'Isère
Living Area: 420 m2
Luxury Chalet Orca is one of the most prestigious chalets in Val d'Isère. Located in Le Fornet, a slightly outlying and residential ancestral hamlet at the foot of an exceptional ski area, Chalet Orca has been created by "Le Mouton à Bascule". Holiday chalet Orca is part of a complex of two prestigious chalets - the other being Chalet Orso - unique in the French Alps. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful chalets built in the resort.
The setting of Chalet Orca is one of the only places to guarantee maximum sunshine all year round. Its huge floor-to-ceiling windows, with a 180-degree view, will revolutionize the way you experience your stay by offering a total immersion in the centre of Val d'Isère. With a surface of 420sqm spread across 4 levels plus a mezzanine, holiday chalet Orca sleeps a total of 14 people.
As soon as you enter the chalet, you will notice an exceptional architecture. Design and decoration are both upscale and traditional. Noble materials such as old wood, leather, stone, flagstone "Lauze" roof are combined with contemporary furniture and bay windows. This gives the chalet an intimate, refined and warm atmosphere. Welcoming and sophisticated holidayers will love to recharge their batteries in the utmost comfort of Chalet Orca.
The first floor of this extraordinary ski chalet consists of a large entrance with multiple storage spaces on either side of the room. On the right is a ski room in old wood and black metal. The stairway is made of stone with old wooden railings that add an extra touch to the decor. The children's dormitories are also made of old wood with Arpin decoration, a high-end Alpine artisan reference. Children have a nice view from this room and all the necessary comfort.
Access to floors can be made by using either an elevator or the stairway. On the lower floor is a magnificent wine cellar entirely glazed under the stairs. The level also offers an incredible wellness area: take a swim in the overflow pool and enjoy a moment of relaxation. It is heated to 27° (the temperature is adjustable for comfort). You will find a stone Jacuzzi with tiled armchairs and its temperature is 34°. You will also have a sauna, a hammam, a large Italian shower, and a gym, fully equipped with the latest technologies. A perfect immersion guaranteeing an exceptional moment of well-being.
The upper floor consists of four magnificent rooms. The first bedroom faces the bay window with a view overlooking the Le Fornet hamlet and the forest. The en-suite bathroom is equipped with a shower with double basins and a waterfall tap. The second bedroom also offers a nice view next to the bed and is equipped with a free-standing bathtub. The third bedroom has a 2-meter long by 1,50m wide Italian shower. You will love the master bedroom: imagine yourself in the freestanding bathtub with the crackling fireplace and the view of the Old Village of Le Fornet! It also has an Italian shower and a double basin.
On this floor, you will have access to one of the most beautiful views from the peripheral balcony that runs alongside all the rooms: due South, at the top of the Fornet with a view of the Old Village below, the forest, the stream crossing the Fornet, the high altitude restaurant "Le Signal" at the top of the ski lift and the Saint-Charles Bridge to the East. This is an exceptional panorama that you will never get tired of.
On the upper floor, a unique element, a "never seen before" in the resort: 6-meter wide by 6-meter high, diamond-shaped window with heat-treated glass for optimal comfort and maximum light. You will love spending special moments with your loved ones in this lounge, especially by sitting comfortably on the large sofa against the bay window, contemplating the splendid view. All the walls of the living room form the bay window and therefore a 180-degree view like a real complete immersion in the centre of Val d'Isère. Specially designed to provide a 180-degree panoramic view of the fire, the 3-sided glass fireplace gives a warm touch that can be enjoyed anywhere. The curtains and bed linings are made by "Atelier des Frères", tailor-made to enhance the soul of the chalet.
The semi-independent kitchen, isolated by an old wood bar, is made of stone, very contemporary and of high quality. It offers direct access to the terrace with a magnificent valley views. The chalet's private chef, present in the morning as well as in the evening, will concoct for you the most complete breakfast to fill up your energy before skiing, and will make you discover the specialities of the region. Chalet Orca also has a private driver as well as a butler and housekeeper to provide you with the best possible experience during your stay.
The metal staircase will lead you to the mezzanine with a pool table, a bar, an arcade table, and a TV screen. The mezzanine also allows splendid views of the Old Village and overlooks the living room. There is also a large garage with enough space for four cars.

LUXURY SKI HOLIDAYS IN VAL D'ISERE
The ski resort Val d'Isère in the Savoie region of France, is a colourful winter sports haven that began as a farm community in the years B.C. The town received parish rights in 1637 and the parish church, which is still a landmark in the town centre, was built in 1664.
The charming village finds its 1,800 residents outnumbered 15 to one by guests in winter. The western and central areas of Val d'Isère are most recognizable by their "chalet" architecture, while in the eastern part of the town high-rise architecture dominates the landscape.
Along with nearby purpose-built Tignes the area forms part of the Espace Killy, the self-titled "Most Beautiful Ski Area in the World". Named for Olympic hero Jean-Claude Killy, who grew up in Val d'Isère, Val is the better-known part of the skiing region and one of the best ski destinations in the French Alps.
The Val d'Isère village is long and thin at the bottom of a deep V-shaped valley. As you approach the resort you pass by Lac du Chevril, under which the old town of Tignes (sunk in 1952) is found. You then enter Val d'Isère via La Daille where the Olympic downhill run finishes. This is a very popular way for skiers to leave the mountain on Val d'Isère holidays, as it is directly below the greatest après ski party in France at Folie Douce. The ski down at closing time is riotous but only recommended for strong intermediates and above. The Pissaillas Glacier offers summer skiing, as well as the usual winter fare.
SKIING IN VAL D'ISERE
The ski slopes themselves are equipped with a high-volume gondola, able to transport standing skiers, the funicular Funival from La Daille via a tunnel to the top of Bellevarde, traditional chair lifts - some with windshields and many detachable, button/disc-pulls - and tow-ropes. There are both groomed slopes and backcountry (off-piste) skiing. The slopes' difficulty levels are particularly high. However, as in Tignes there are grand, easy pistes as well. It is first class off-piste country for powder addicts and there are many good guides available.
