    Description

    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 heart of the resort.

    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 blend gives the chalet an intimate, refined and warm atmosphere.  Welcoming, as sophisticated you love to recharge your batteries in the utmost comfort of chalet Orca.

    The first floor of the chalet consists of a large entrance with multiple storage spaces on either side of the room. On your right, a ski-room in old wood and black metal. In front of you, 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, you will see 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 your 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 you 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 ensuite 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 freestanding bathtub. The third bedroom has a 2-meter long by 1.50-meter 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 windows 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 heart of Val d’Isere. Specially designed to provide a 180-degree panoramic view of the fire, the 3-sided glass fireplace gives a warm touch that you can enjoy anywhere. The Atelier des Frères made the curtains, the bed linings. Tailor-made products to enhance the soul of the chalet.

    The semi-independent kitchen, isolated by an old wood bar, is made of stone, very contemporary and high quality. It offers you direct access to the terrace with a magnificent view of the valley. 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 offers a splendid view of the Old Village and overlooks the living room.

    A large garage will allow you to store up to four cars.
