A perfect studio apartment for two people with suburb views on to the forest. Living room has double sofa bed and a flatscreen satellite TV/DVD player. There is also free Internet access. There is a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, and a seperate shower with WC. . Lots of stone to create a really 'cosy' feeling.
Chalet Lacs d'Amour
Chalet Lacs D'Amour is situated in the Savoyarde Hamlet of Le Fornet, two kilometres from Val d'Isere, so combining mountain charm and tranquillity with the excitement of one of the world's top ski resorts. The chalet is divided into 4 apartments, sleeping a maximum of 20 people. The largest of the 4 apartments has 3 bedrooms on 3 levels, including fireplace, sauna and jacuzzi.
At 1,950 metres the chalet is surrounded by snow for six months in the winter, and mountain pastures with alpine flowers in the summer. The Le Fornet cable car is a few minutes walk downhill from the chalet, giving access to winter and summer skiing. In the winter you have the choice of a blue or black run back to the front door of the chalet. In the ski season a shuttle bus service runs from Le Fornet every five minutes throughout the day to Val d'Isere. You can also take Le Fornet cable car and gondolas up on to the Le Fornet runs and then catch a chair lift over on to the other slopes in the area.
For all our clients we have recently entered into a collaboration with one of the best local ski shops who will give a special 40% - 50% discount arrangement for the hire of ski equipment!!! They will also collect you from the village by van and bring you back with your boots and skis or snow boards.
In the Summer enjoy the long walks from the chalet up to waterfalls and a lake. The alpine flowers are truly breathtaking and the only sounds will be the birds and the marmottes and the sound of the river.

Great base for Val D'Isere and surround
Super studio apartment in the idyllic hamlet of Le Fornet. Stayed last week in Jan 2016 – sunshine to blizzards but always comfortable in the Studio. Access to Fornet pistes or the all hours free ski bus into town both close by. Well presented apartment in a historic conversion. Excellently provisioned kitchen area and communal facilities a bonus. Some nice welcome touches provided by owner. Suitable for solo visitor or couples. Quick reply and booking confirmation from owner following initial enquiry. Availability chart were up to date and accurate. Local Le Fornet lift bar and lunch/evening at L'Arolay recommended after skiing your socks off or just strolling up to Pont St Charles. Best of both worlds with Val D’Isere centre & amenities on hand yet tranquillity & spectacular scenery surrounding the Chalet. Equally attractive all year round I imagine.

Activity and Interests
In the Winter access to the ski areas of Val d'Isere and Tignes. Leave the chalet in the morning and catch the cable car and ski all day and then ski back to the chalet at night. We have made arrangements with a local ski shop who will rent you skis and snowboards at an excellent discount. They are experts in finding the most comfortable boots and will come and collect you by van from the chalet and take you down and bring you back with your equipment.
In Summer enjoy the mountain scenery and alpine flowers. There are many spectacular walks to see the Ibex on the Italian frontier, or trek to see the many waterfalls. There is horse riding, tennis lessons, trampoline and circus schools for the children plus rock climbing, walks with guides and and the possibility to learn para gliding. There is a nine hole golf course in the neighbouring resort of Tignes. If you have young children there is a Sports Club where they will be looked after every afternoon and participate in numerous outdoor activities. Val d'Isere also boasts a wonderful inside swimming pool with swimming lanes, a large pool with jacuzzis and sauna. There is also a well equipped gym at the Swimming Pool and the possibility of having spa treatment.
In the valley of Le Manchet the children can have horse riding, tennis and circus school lessons.
A free bus service runs during the ski season and also the Summer season so a car is not a necessity. You can also rent mountain bikes and explore the mountain trails.
