Chalet Mathilda epitomises the modern luxury ski chalet. Combining Savoyard authenticity with contemporary luxury, Mathilda features an indoor swimming pool and Hammam and is located on the private estate of Les Fermes de Val d'Isère. Sleeps 10.
When chalet Mathilda was completed in 2005, a new standard of luxury ski holidays was set. Service akin to that of a five star hotel and wellness facilities including an indoor swimming pool and steam room were combined in a brand new, spacious and chic private chalet.
Designed and built by the same architect who created our Flagship chalet Eagle's Nest, Mathilda continues to command a place among the very best chalets in Val d'Isère and the Alps by virtue of size, facilities, quality of finish and the style that stands the test of time, combining traditional Alpine style with the clean and crisp influences of today. Chalet Mathilda features not only an indoor swimming pool with jet stream but also a Hammam.
On the ground floor is the fabulous wellness area with indoor swimming pool with jet stream and hammam (steam room). There is also a TV room / study / playroom which adds a useful degree of versatility and can even be used for an extra occasional bed.
On the first floor are four bedrooms all with private bathrooms decorated with fine Italian tiles and crisp white porcelain. The bedrooms and living room feature a wealth of beams and panels of old reclaimed wood, which makes them truly unique.
On the second floor, an authentic stone fireplace compliments the spacious open plan living room and dining room and a large sun terrace adds to this already impressive area. The panoramic windows make the most of the dazzling alpine scenery. On the top floor is the fifth en-suite bathroom which is delight. Full of character and romance, it sits alone beneath the eaves and feels like staying in an original alpine chalet.
Service in Mathilda is personal yet professional and our team will go out of their way to ensure you have the perfect skiing holiday. The food will be tailored to your personal tastes by your private chef and will be well matched to our delicious house wines.
Located only a short walk or very short drive from the centre of Val dIsère, yet in a private a peaceful private estate, Chalet Mathilda offers the very best in chalet skiing holidays and will suit both adult groups and families perfectly. All of our chalets are non-smoking inside.
Chalet Mathilda has five bedrooms all featuring traditional wooden beams and Moroccan style ceilings. Four of the five bedrooms are on the first floor, making it ideal for families as parents and children can have neighbouring rooms. All bedrooms have TVs and Freesat, and the spacious master suite has an iPod dock, and benefits from both bath and separate shower. The lovely fifth room on the third floor under the eaves is also worthy of the "master" title. Each room has an en-suite bath or shower room decorated with a mixture of wood and modern slate tiles. All bedrooms have electronic safes.

There's nothing better after a day's skiing than a wonderful gourmet feast, created by your own private chef, tailored to your party and served with finesse.
In your luxury catered chalet the fire pops and crackles in the background as you sip a glass of Laurent-Perrier, and take bite of a mouthwatering canapé. As your attentive host discreetly fills your glass, you can lie back and relax as the muscles in your legs buzz with the day's activities.
Incredible smells drift from the kitchen, where your private chef is putting the finishing touches to dinner: paprika wafer with tiger prawns, followed by fillet of beef and thyme rosti. And when the sticky toffee and cardamom pudding appears, you realise resistance is futile.
