Description

Barmettes in Val d'Isere is a family friendly luxury apartment with private sauna and hot tub, located in the old village, sleeping up to eight people in three beautiful bedrooms and childrens bunk bedroom. Occupying one of Val d'Isere's most enviable positions, this property has been designed with extraordinary attention to detail.
 
Rich and textured fabrics combined with a light grainy wood throughout create a warm and very traditional environment. Intimate yet spacious, bright yet cosy, Barmettes is the ideal blend of classic alpine charm and contemporary chic. What’s more, this gorgeous home is only a two-minute walk from the piste, making it exceptionally convenient too. The apartment is spread over three floors, it can be entered on the middle floor and here are two spacious double bedrooms and the cosy children's bunk room. Each bedroom is named after an iconic explorer, individually cozy designed. The master bedroom offers a lot of space which is presided over by a set of impressive buffalo horns above the double bed, the bed can be made up to two twins. On one end the room blends seamlessly into a bathroom with stylish his and her sinks and there is a separate shower here too as well as a mounted TV. The second bedroom also provides the option of double or twin beds. It boasts a gorgeously rustic en-suite shower room. The third bedroom is a bunk room which sleeps two in an artfully crafted wooden bunkbed. There is a guest toilet on this level and also a boot room with ample ski storage.
 
The first floor is the main hub of the apartment where you are instantly drawn into the welcoming open plan living and dining room. Shelves weighted with books adorn the walls and various old-world artworks, objets d’art, and mounted trophies inject the room with a sense of luxury and grandeur. Plush and generous seating and a large warming fireplace make it the perfect space to unwind in at the end of the day.
To the side of the lounge is the dining are with a table that comfortably seats six people. Beyond this, and discreetly hidden behind a wooden panel with several open panes is a modern, fully-equipped kitchen.

A separate shower room with a toilet and a mounted tv complete this haven of comfort. At the lower ground level are all the facilities required for relaxation and entertainment.

Infos/Activities

It lies 5 km from the border with Italy, on the border of the Vanoise National Park created in 1963. During the 1992 Winter Olympics, the Face de Bellevarde was the site of the men's downhill race. Other alpine skiing events held during those games included men's giant slalom and alpine combined. Val d'Isère regularly hosts World Cup alpine events, usually for the men in early December, and hosted the World Championships in 2009. 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 Tignes the area forms part of the "l'Espace Killy", the self-titled "Most Beautiful Ski Area in the World". The town received parish rights in 1637 and the parish church, which is still a landmark in the town centre, was built in 1664. Val d'Isère: It is the better-known part of Espace Killy one of the best ski destination. Val d'Isere, in the Savoie area of France, is a colourful winter sports haven that began as a farm community in the years BC. The huge skiing domain, shares itself with purpose-built Tignes. The area is named for Olympic hero Jean-Claude Killy, who grew up in Val d'Isere. The charming village finds its 1,800 residents outnumbered 15 to one by guests in winter. Espace Killy has 300 kilometres of maintained slopes cut through vast snowfields that stretch to the horizon. With ninety-nine lifts! Indulge yourself in our luxury winter ski chalets.

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. Snow cannon are placed on certain slopes to accommodate heavy skiing. 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 motorway pistes as well to let rip on. It is first class off piste country for powder addicts and there are many good guides available.
