Le Blizzard is a spa hotel right in the heart of Val d'Isere 1850, located at the foot of the ski lifts.
Owned by the Cerboneschi family, the hotel feels almost more like a (very luxurious) homestay, with antiques, comfortable armchairs and personal touches in each of the individually decorated bedrooms and suites.
If you can drag yourself from your stylish and cosy room, Le Blizzard has two restaurants, namely Le Luge, which specialises in classic hearty Savoyard dishes such as fondues and raclette, and the eponymous Le Blizzard gastronomic restaurant for fine dining using seasonal and - wherever possible - local produce. The Lounge Bar is a renowned retreat thanks to its low ceilings and comfortable sofas where guests can relax and enjoy a pre-dinner drink.
The hotel also has a Clarins spa, complete with a whirlpool bath, hammam steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi, as well as a - heated - outdoor pool so you can swim surrounded by snow after a day on the slopes.
Why we love it
The friendly staff can arrange services such as arranging for delivery of your ski equipment from the rental shop or, for families, baby-sitting.
