Our favourite rooms
The Mont Pourri suite’s private balcony has some of the best valley views in the chalet, plus there are plentiful furry throws to snuggle up under by the fireside.
Set in an elegant wood-panelled room with sweeping views over the valley, the natural, chlorine-free pool is a serene spot for a dip after an action-packed day. Should you wish to prep your muscles for heli-skiing or mountain biking, turn on the pool’s brisk counter-current system; alternatively, let the jets massage you. There’s also an outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking the snow-topped or forest-clad mountains – add a glass of champagne and you’ve found the perfect way to chill out after a day on the slopes or hiking in the hills.
The spa has both a steam room and sauna, or if you need a little more TLC, the chalet staff can arrange in-room massages, facials and more.
You’ll have plenty of spare space in your suitcase, as the hotel has almost all kit covered: from wellies to sun hats, and ski gear to summer sports equipment. Do pack warm separates to layer, though.
