Chalet Eagle’s Nest
About Chalet Eagle’s Nest
Eagle’s Nest is an icon of Alpine luxury. Eagle’s Nest revolutionised the chalet skiing holiday when it offered the first indoor swimming pool in a private chalet in 2002. Others have attempted to imitate Eagle’s Nest but constant improvements mean that it continues to set the standard by which other chalets are measured.
As you arrive the bronze eagle, nearly 3 metres high and sculpted by Livio Benedetti who created the “Dame du Lac”, greets you. The chalet’s position, atop a rock with incredible views over Val d’Isère, and in the private estate, simply cannot be rivalled. The famous La Face piste is at the end of the road, meaning that you can get on the slopes quickly. Inside, beneath the surface of a beautiful, traditional alpine chalet is a super high tech property boasting a steam room, sauna, jetstream indoor pool, Sonos integrated music system, flat screen TVs in the bedrooms and an outdoor hot tub.
Chalet Eagle’s Nest is spread over four floors. The top floor is completely dedicated to guests, with a large spacious living room, comfy sofas and armchairs – with plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Doors lead out onto the balcony where you can sit and gaze at the mesmerising views from your cliff top position. A separate mezzanine with flat screen and games consoles provides another space to relax and the newly created bar area means that cocktail hour at Eagle’s Nest is something special. Dining at Eagle’s Nest is unforgettable as fine wines, breath-taking views and a crackling log fire complement exquisite courses, beautifully prepared by your private chef.
On the first floor is a small double room and the master suite which has outstanding views on two sides, a dressing room and wonderful bathroom decorated with Italian tiles. Descend another level 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. On the lower ground floor, the fabulous wellness area has wonderful views and integrated music. You can swim against the Jetstream in the swimming pool and the sauna and steam room are perfect for soothing aching legs after skiing. However, enjoying a glass of champagne whilst luxuriating in the outdoor hot tub on the deck overlooking the resort is an experience in itself. We can also book treatments at the chalet for the ultimate pampering; we use the best therapists, physios and masseurs in Val d’Isere.
Perhaps the best thing about Eagle’s 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 d’Isère.
Chalet Eagle’s Nest comes with a renowned chalet service; the team pride themselves on ensuring that the service is seamless whilst anticipating your every need. Your private chef will serve mouth-watering dishes from a menu tailored to your tastes. Your host will manage your whole holiday, from restaurant bookings to ensuring a smart 4 wheel drive vehicle is ready to take you skiing and keeping your glass topped up with a carefully chosen wine or a perfectly mixed gin & tonic. Breakfast and afternoon tea is served daily with pre-dinner champagne and spirits followed by gourmet dinners on six nights with wine. Our driver service offers a fleet of vehicles to whisk you to and from the slopes.
