Why Le Fornet?


High altitude, snow-sure resort

Picturesque hamlet located just outside of Val d’Isere centre offering a more peaceful location for chalets

Free shuttle bus directly outside the chalet running every 20 minutes from 7am to 2:50am which goes to Val d’Isere centre in 5 minutes, offering easy access to plenty of bars and restaurants

Telecabine right opposite chalet offers direct access to Pisailles Glacier, the Le Fornet ski area, and the entirety of Tignes and Val d’Isere

Great pistes for all level of skier and extensive off-piste mountainside

Tucked a couple of miles further along the valley from Val d’Isere, and nestled below the iconic Col d’Iseran, lies the exclusive and picturesque hamlet of Le Fornet. Far enough away from the town centre to give you peace and tranquillity away from the busy streets, but close enough for you to still access the lively restaurants and buzzing main square, Le Fornet gives you the best of both worlds.

Consisting of traditional alpine chalets, the hamlet is far prettier than some of the more modern areas of Val d’Isere, over the years having maintained an older, more authentic look. It’s surrounding mountains makes it one of the most stunning areas in resort, with the sunset over the mountains being truly something special. Our chalet, Chalet Amelie, is located right at the heart of Le Fornet, set back from the main road, and opposite the car park and the Le Fornet Telecabine.

As one of the highest altitude settlements in the valley, Le Fornet always guarantees a long and snowy season. Le Fornet’s side of the mountain range is a favourite of so many, its wide open valley runs, large selection of relaxing blue runs, and pretty winding tree runs making it a snowy dreamland for piste skiers. Le Fornet also features the second highest peak in resort, the Glacier du Pissaillas. And even while you have all these amazing runs on your doorstep, the rest of the Tignes and Val d’Isere ski resort is just an up-and-over ski lift away.

The central Val d’Isere village is easily accessible from Le Fornet either via the pistes or by jumping on the regular free shuttle bus that runs from Le Fornet to the other villages. This handy shuttle service even runs into the early hours of the morning, so guests staying in Le Fornet can still enjoy evenings out in the famous Val d’Isere centre. And if guests prefer stay close by to their chalet in Le Fornet, there is a friendly bar and a Michelin star restaurant right on their doorstep.

Le Fornet really is a must-visit area of the Tignes and Val d’Isere ski resort, as it offers an idyllic slice of luxury, peace and relaxation just outside the buzz of the famous and much-loved town of Val d’Isere. We at Chardons feel so lucky to have a beautiful and sizeable chalet right in the centre of Le Fornet, and over the years this pretty little hamlet truly has won the hearts of not only our guests, but of so many of our staff as well.
