Chalets sleep up to 20 guests

Le Chardon Mountain Lodges are undoubtedly one of the most desirable and exclusive selection of chalets in Val d'Isère.

Fresh alpine air and fantastic food are the perfect pairing. After a morning on the slopes (or being pampered in the spa), haute cuisine dining is the perfect way to indulge.

Our catered chalets in Val d'Isere ensure that all your culinary needs are taken care of, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the company and the cuisine.


The private catered ski holiday experience covers every gastronomic aspect of your trip. From regular meals, to spontaneous snacks and catering for special dinners or events, a catered chalet provides an exclusive and bespoke service that can make your trip feel effortless.

Breakfast, afternoon tea and a five-course dinner are served every day with bespoke menus designed to accommodate the needs of your group, including any specific dietary requirements. Our sumptuous dishes are designed and crafted from the best local produce by our personal chefs and you can choose from a superior wine list to make the experience complete.


Apart from the opportunity to work with a private chef to try the tastes and cuisines of the Alps there are many reasons to opt for the luxury of staying at a catered ski chalet in France:

  • Relax and enjoy yourself
    Our four luxury catered chalets in Val d'Isere have a huge advantage over self-catering as you have more time for you. There's no need to shop or prepare food, you can just relax and enjoy.
  • Get the full experience
    Gastronomic food and wine are the benchmark at Le Chardon's chalets – our hand-picked chefs create exceptional menus to tantalise all tastebuds. Canapés, deeply satisfying mains and delicate desserts are crafted from high quality produce and combined with an a la carte list of fine wines so you can get the true taste of the Alps.
  • Dietary requirements covered
    Choose menus that suit your party – you may have picky children or vegan guests, family members looking for low calorie choices or colleagues who just want to indulge. Whatever your specific culinary needs, we will ensure that all your catering needs will be met so you don't have to worry.


At Le Chardon, we have been running exclusive catered ski chalets in France since 1992 and have a great deal of experience in the culinary side of a fantastic luxury holiday. Whether you have a sweet tooth, or you're keen to try Savoyard specialities such as fondue, tartiflette or crozets, our chefs can ensure that your gastronomic tastes are catered for.

Our fine dining options are deliciously tempting, from carefully sourced, beautifully cooked meat and seafood, to expertly prepared desserts. Bespoke menus can be designed to suit your tastes using locally sourced ingredients and imaginative cuisine so you can get the true taste of the Alps.

Of course catered chalets aren't just about the food but the service too. At our chalets we ensure your party is catered for with exceptionally high levels of service. Whether you're staying with 20 at Chalet Le Chardon with its 10 en suite bedrooms and 18ft spa pool, or visiting with family for the ski in/ski out and open fires of Chalet La Bergerie, every party is catered for. You don't have to lift a finger to enjoy delicious gastronomy with us in France.
