Setting

Val d’Isère central

Five words you want to hear from a top-notch mountain stay: everything is taken care of – and never more so than at La Mourra Hôtel Village. This superlative Val d’Isère address comprises luxury chalets and spacious suites. The former come with chefs, butlers, drivers and porters; there’s a cinema room and spa in situ at each chalet and the concierge is as well connected as the hotel’s underground tunnels (linking the chalets and hotel). The latter, eight stylish suites, are in pole position above the hotel’s Japanese-fusion restaurant and Clarins spa, with shuttles to the ski lifts, a centre-ville location and seamless service making any stay here a (mountain) breeze.

Our favourite rooms

Warm timbers, luxury textiles and a sophisticated finish make all suites at La Mourra tempting – especially the two-bedroom suite with a separate sitting room (wood-burning stove included). Of the chalets, showstopping La Grange has a double-height, vaulted living space with a sweeping terrace; Chalet Chêne impresses with polish and proportions, and Ambre’s eye-catching layout – with only a lobby at ground level and a fifth bedroom under the eaves on the third floor – is a breath of fresh air.

Poolside

Fringed by cushioned sofas and chairs, the heated, marble-edged pool at the heart of the hotel spa is open from 10am until 9pm. Or enjoy a private dip without even leaving the house, courtesy of the plunge pool in every La Mourra chalet.

Spa

A mosaic-tiled hammam and wood-lined sauna edge the relaxation area of sofas and easy chairs beside the marble-framed lap pool at the hotel spa. Clarins treatments using customised My Blend spa products can be booked for one of the spa’s two timber-panelled treatment rooms or for the private spa cabin at your chalet. All chalets come with a private sauna, steam room and plunge pool, too.

Packing tips

In your deliberations over ski jackets, salopettes and snow boots, don’t forget that togs for the spa and glamorous threads for dinner are equally deserving of your attention.

Food and Drink

Top Table

In keeping with the Japanese fare on offer, sofa-lined low tables to the left of the entrance are a romantic spot in which to savour sushi.

Dress Code

A silk shirt, kimono jacket or sakura-print blouse will all pair glamorously with the Japanese-fusion cuisine.

Hotel restaurant

The timbered dining room is cosy with a capital c: warm-wood panelling; eye-catching pendant lights and chandeliers; chairs upholstered in stripes, woven fabrics or velvet, but always pillowy; linen-draped tables and deft, friendly service. It’s an Alpine setting that sits in contrast to its Japanese-fusion menu, which includes a choice of freshly prepared sushi and mains such as umami-style Bresse chicken, beef tataki, cod with miso or sole furikake.

Hotel bar

Alongside the restaurant at the heart of the hotel, La Mourra’s bar is a low-lit lounge of easy chairs and side tables and high stools beside the bar: try signature cocktail, Aki No Tsuki – a blend of vanilla vodka, lemon-ginger sake and tropical fruit juices. An eye-catching wine cellar at the entrance is a trove of French vintages that the hotel’s resident sommelier will be all too happy to guide you through.

Worth getting out of bed for

Haute-Tarentaise is a snowy playground beloved of wintersports enthusiasts and prized for its long season, from the end of November all the way to May. Close to the Italian border, it’s well set-up for those looking to heliski. And its link with Tignes creates a ski area with 300km of pistes, two glaciers (ensuring late-season snow up high), a snowpark, cross-country skiing and biathlon. Throw in some aerial derring-do with speed riding, paragliding or snowkiting – or stick at ground level and try snowshoeing, dog-sledding or snowmobiling. To keep little Smiths occupied, Val d’Isère has an ice rink and toboggan area.

Local restaurants

Claire and Gilles Malafosse bring LouLou to the mountains at Airelles – a ceiling of blossomed boughs in the dining room as much of a showstopper as the Italian-French fare, including pizza truffe noir, lobster linguine and seven-hour slow-roasted shoulder of lamb. La Mourra’s sister hotel Le Blizzard is home to a timbered Alpine dining room where chef Patrice Durand works flavourful wonders with mains such as smoked scallops and creamy polenta and thyme-seasoned saddle of lamb with caramelised cutlets. All things Savoyard and cheesy are served in Hotel Blizzard’s dinner-only restaurant, La Luge.

As soon as our reviewers have returned from this ski hotel in Savoie and unpacked their génépy and wraparound Oakleys, a full account of their mountain break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside La Mourra Hôtel Village in Val d’Isère


A dilemma familiar to all winter-holiday devotees is whether to opt for the home-from-home comforts of an Alpine chalet or seek out hotel frills and forgo exclusivity. The solution is La Mourra Hôtel Village – a stellar stay of suites and standalone chalets at the heart of Val d’Isère – which offers the benefits of both, whichever option you plump for. Its hotel suites afford the space and privacy you’d expect of a chalet (balconies, living areas, generous ensuites); its five finessed chalets come with the kind of extras, service and thoughtful details you’d expect from an upscale hotel (a private chef, butler, alcohol allowance, free shuttles, concierge services for help with everything from ski hire to babysitting). The marble-lined Clarins spa is a boon for all guests (although chalet stays come with a private spa chez vous, too) and the hotel’s glamorous Japanese-fusion restaurant and bar are a gastronomic go-to for diners resort-wide. With views of the imposing Face de Bellevarde from the hotel and Val d’Isère’s centre-ville in easy reach, La Mourra’s first-class location is free of compromise, too.
