Eagleʼs Nest sits proudly upon a hill top, with commanding views over the resort of Val dʼIsere below. Eagleʼs Nest can proudly boast to being the first in Val dʼIsere to include an indoor swimming pool in a private chalet in 2002. As you ascend to the chalet via a private entrance, you are greeted by the bronze eagle, close to 3 metres high and sculpted by Livio Benedetti who created the “Dame du Lac” you will likely pass on the way to the Val dʼIsère resort.
The chaletʼs position, with magnificent views over Val dʼIsère and in a private estate, simply cannot be rivalled. The famous La Face piste is at the end of the road, making Eagleʼs Nest practically ski-in-ski-out, a must for the dedicated skier.
Eagleʼs Nest is spread out over four spacious floors. At the very top, the expansive living room is ideal for large groups and has vaulted ceilings, a log fireplace and large sunny balconies. There is a mezzanine with flat screen and games consoles. Dining at the Eagleʼs Nest is unforgettable experience as fine wines, awe-inspiring views and a roaring log fire complement exquisite courses, beautifully prepared by your very own talented chef. The chalet is liberally sprinkled with stunning furniture pieces and antiques – beauty is everywhere, betraying the taste of the owners and designers.
The ground floor contains a small double room and the master suite which has outstanding views on 2 sides, a dressing room and wonderful bathroom decorated with Italian tiles. Descend to the level below and there are four double bedrooms all of which qualify as suites, as well as a single bedroom. All are beautifully furnished and en suite with all the fixtures and fitting expected of a chalet of this calibre.
On the bottom floor, the fabulous Wellness area has wonderful views and integrated music. You can swim against the jet stream in the swimming pool and the sauna and steam room are perfect for soothing fatigue after and exhilarating day on the slopes.
One of the finest things about Eagleʼs Nest though is the authenticity. You need not be an expert in Savoyard antiques (although it helps) to see that the chalet is tastefully and beautifully decorated throughout. The chalet is constructed from antique timbers and every piece of furniture and every painting has been carefully selected for its alpine heritage, true to the roots of the quiet farming village of Val dʼIsère. Oh, and did we forget to mention an outdoor hot tub with fantastic views?

“Ralph Lauren meets James Bond. Engulfing, squashy sofas in two seating areas, Savoyard antiques, and a 4ft by 3ft plasma television screen that rises by remote control in classic 007 tradition, from a reconstituted 17th-century oak dresser. The £100,000 sound system discreetly invades every room with a choice of 1,200 albums and 900 TV channels.”
“The first private chalet to offer an indoor swimming pool in 2012, Eagle's Nest set the bar for alpine luxury. A recent 750,000 euro refurb means it remains at the top of its game with a new deck and hot-tub area to enjoy post-ski vin chauds, a bar with fabulous views and a new games room complete with table football and pool table. Located within a private estate at the bottom of 1992 Olympic ski run La Face, this wood-built family chalet can accommodate up to 12 guests.”
No need to rush out of bed - breakfast is laid on. A healthy array of fresh fruit juices, a selection of warming teas and coffee - yoghurts, crispy cereals, juicy fruit and a mouth-watering display of delicious fresh breads & delicate pastries. Your chef will also prepare a daily cooked hot option for you - how do you like your eggs? So much choice that you might miss the first ski lift if you're not careful.
Come back after a wonderful day on the mountain to the warmth and comfort of your chalet. Snuggle up on the comfy sofa in front of a crackling fire, with a steaming cup of tea and a generous serving of cake – this is how all afternoons should be. Your chef will prepare a fresh from the oven, sweet treat for your return, so whether your preference is for a hearty sticky Apple and Ginger cake or a delicate Mille-feuille aux framboise is more your thing, there will be something tempting waiting for you. Personally I don’t think you can beat a slice of crispy baguette with lashings of butter and dollops of apricot jam or nutella - but maybe that ‘s just me - the perfect comfort food.
When staying in a catered chalet every night feels like a special occasion, and why shouldn't it, you're on an amazing holiday and it's so good to be alive. You’re dressed and ready for a glass of something chilled with friends and family, ready to regale them with tales of your mountain adventures that may get a little exaggerated for dramatic effect with each rendition. Enjoy the delicious canapés and amuse-bouche freshly prepared by your star in the kitchen.
Take a seat at your own private table - it's time for the main event – a delicious feast, masterfully crafted by your talented chef. With an emphasis on using hand-selected, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients you will be served a melt in your mouth three course dinner that wouldn't look out of place in a Michelin starred restaurant. Dinner is complimented by a tangy platter of divine local cheeses. Menus can be tailored to suit your tastes and your chef will be happy to prepare everything from a simple supper to fine dining delights.
The chalet can provide both alcoholic and soft drinks as per your requirements.
The chalet is happy to cater for specific dietary requirements, and will serve an earlier high tea for children. You can talk to your SkiBoutique PA about any specific requests from dietary requirements such as gluten free diets to birthday cakes and favourite dishes. We will do our very best to ensure that your wishes are granted and delivered in resort.
