As many of Le Chardon’s regulars will know by now, there is something for everyone in the best French Alps resort of Val d’Isere.
If you are, or are in a relationship with, an extreme skier seeking the ultimate ski experience … or perhaps a young, time-precious family looking for a cozy mountain retreat, Val d’Isere specialises in glamour, adrenaline, luxury and relaxation.
Young or old, skier or apres skier, celebrity or royal, Val d’Isere is the top of the pops for quality runs, great night life and luxurious ski accommodation.

In fact, according to Le Chardon HQ’s Celeb-skidar (celebrity ski radar, sorry!), the word on the street is that this winter ski season in Val d’Isere is forecast to be particularly memorable.
Val d’Isere Ski Season Royalty
Le tout royalty of Great Britain seems to have passed through the slopes of Val d’Isere at one point or another.
The younger Princes William (pre-marriage) and Harry would often shake loose from the cloisters of their father, Prince Charles at Klosters and enjoy some fun in the notorious Val d’Isere nightclubs.
Even Princess Beatrice has been known to cut a fine figure on the slopes.
