It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful chalets built in the resort. The level of facilities and services is worthy of the most prestigious hotels. Shuttles are available between the centre of Val d’Isère and Le Fornet.

The entrance to Chalet Orso is made of heated “lauze” flagstone and offers, on the left, a very large 13.50 sq.m ski room to remove your shoes comfortably after a long day on the slopes. Whether you are a skier or not, you will love the dedicated spaces of this magnificent luxury chalet. The chalet is equipped with an elevator and a staircase in old and contemporary wood with leds to access the different levels. The alpine and modern spirit of this chalet intertwines the same elements from one floor to the next: the old wooden floors and walls, the black metal details to awaken the eye, the presence of stones in the stairs or the kitchen to revive the authenticity of the place, the traditional Arpin fabrics made to warm up the bedrooms and the different rooms of the chalet.
Next to the ski room, a beautiful tailor-made wine cellar. The level also contains a pearl among the jewels of Chalet Orso: a very large wellness and fitness area. Relax in the custom-made hammam or sauna, do lengths in the pool or let the bubbles relax you in the stone and overflowing jacuzzi! A water mirror, including the pool and jacuzzi, is 15 metres long. The raw concrete on the ceiling goes down the wall to the bottom of the pool and gives the magical impression of being in a cave. Not to mention the fitness area, Chalet Orso will delight all its guests.
The night spaces, with their very natural tones, will be perfect places to enjoy a good night’s sleep in an alpine setting. You will bathe in the softest fabrics, fluffy carpets and wood for an ultra-cocooning atmosphere.
This luxury chalet has a master bedroom nestled inside the fir trees, very well equipped, including an ethanol fireplace, a private balcony, a very large Italian shower and a freestanding bathtub with TV built into the wall facing the bathtub, a large dressing room and a desk. You will have a view through the surrounding nature, in the middle of the forest. Another room on this level is also equipped with an ethanol fireplace and a private balcony with a beautiful view of nature. It also has an office and a large Italian shower. The third room has a bathtub with a beautiful view of the Fornet forest. The level offers a fourth bedroom with a large dressing room and a bathtub, as well as a custom-built dormitory made of old wood. A real cocoon for children where they will feel like in a small house. They will also have a double Italian shower, with double basin and a large bathtub. All rooms have a TV and offer exceptional comfort.
Upstairs, you will find the main room: a magnificent dining room entirely made of old wood. A superb metal staircase will take you to the mezzanine under a creeping ceiling, 2.50 metres high, where you will find many games and entertainment at your disposal: table football, pinball machine, an authentic jubebox with vinyl, bar and TV lounge; and enjoy a splendid view of the lounge and the entire village of Le Fornet.
The entire living area is designed as an open space. Thus, the living room, the kitchen and the mezzanine blend together and interact in an unclosed path. The kitchen can be closed if you wish to ask for the services of a chef to rest completely. A chef and a waiter will be at your disposal, in the greatest discretion, for breakfasts and dinners. He will prepare delicacies and other delicacies for you in the fully equipped semi-professional kitchen. The interior decoration, with its natural and refined colours, favours elegance in order to preserve an impression of space and optimal luminosity. Great attention has been paid to furnishings and textiles, which reinforce the welcoming and warm character of the premises. The Brothers’ workshop made the curtains, the bed linings. Tailor-made products to enhance the soul of the chalet. A private driver and a housekeeper are also present to provide you with the best possible experience during your stay in Chalet Orso.
The magnificent lounge offers a clear view with the magical feeling of being in the middle of the mountains, like a natural lookout. This is an essential part of the stay. You will have the privilege of having a view at more than 200 degrees from East to West via the South. A 7.50-meter-high living room, a first 6-meter-high by 3.50-meter-wide bay window with a southern exposure, and a second 4.50-meter-high by 5-meter-wide bay window with a western exposure. You will also have an opening on a large 40 sq.m balcony/terrace with a Norwegian bath heated electrically or with wood. You will love swimming while enjoying the 180-degree view overlooking the entire Fornet.
Among its strong points, Chalet Orso, in addition to its decoration worthy of a refined jewel, will delight you with its immense bay window with a panoramic view of the mountains, its large volumes and its relaxation area with the imposing swimming pool, the overflow jacuzzi, the hammam and the sauna. If you wish to have a real crush, it is THE chalet, unique, majestic and worthy of your dreams of greatness, among the most beautiful in Val d’Isere.
