About Chalet Rive Gauche

Inspiring interiors and unique location above the Isère river gorge prepare visitors for a wonderful stay in the mountains. Five bedrooms spread across four floors; chalet Rive Gauche has a spectacular living and dining space, which catches the last of the evening sun. An indoor pool and hammam, and a home run piste back to the door of the property spoil skiers choosing this special chalet.

Chalet Rive Gauche is positioned in one of the most beautiful spots in Val d’Isère. It is enviably perched on the rocks above the Isère river gorge and sits at the bottom of the blue Mangard piste that comes into the village from Le Fornet, meaning you can comfortably ski back to the door. The renowned architect Michel Covarel constructed this chalet in 2014. Built in local stone and reclaimed wood to a design that sits perfectly in its location yet delivers a contemporary feel. Facing mainly west, it really benefits from the evening sun and creates a spectacular venue for drinks on the terrace in late winter and spring.

The clever contemporary interior design still retains a wonderful mountain charm. The river lies directly beneath the chalet and gives the property a unique position and aspect. Rive Gauche is 150m from the main Fornet cable car, and is a short warm up walk in the morning or a hop in the 4×4. If you love your off-piste skiing then this property gives direct access to the famous off-piste areas of the Grand Vallon and Col Pers. The chalet is usually deep in snow for most of the winter. Beginners and children alike will be pleased that in two quick lifts you will find gently sloping glacier skiing with unrivalled snow at 3300m.

Situated beautifully next to her sister chalet, Vieux Pont, enter the chalet into the reception area and ski room where there is a simple place for ski storage and all important boot warmers. On this level discover the indoor pool with flow system and a Moroccan steam room with one of the best views in Val d’Isère overlooking the river and the old bridge. Moving to the first floor you will find the main sleeping area where most of the bedrooms are located. Three of these rooms are king or twin rooms and are flexible on how they are configured. They benefit from mainly west facing views to catch the evening sun. There is also a small room that contains adult sized, fixed reclaimed wood bunk beds, with its own wash space.

The second floor has one of the most impressive spaces in the chalet, with a huge living and dining area that can easily entertain large numbers of people. With double-height windows, huge amounts of light flood onto this floor. There is an outside terrace overlooking the river and the Italian border mountains. The reclaimed wood table seats ten and there is also a card or breakfast table for four. The log fireplace is a central focus for the room and there is a large flat screen television for catching up on sporting events or just watching a movie.

The chalet is fully serviced. Our professional chefs will contact you before arrival to discuss your menus for the week. We also have an in house host who provides an exceptional concierge service to help you with the booking of ski tuition, guides, equipment or help with restaurant reservations. The chalet comes with access to our 4×4 Landrover driving service and chauffeur, who also doubles as our go to person for snow and weather updates and lift openings.

Chalet Rive Gauche can be combined with Chalet Vieux Pont perfectly to cater for a group of twenty.
