Winter and Summer Skiing at the French Alps’ New Highest Hotel

The highest hotel in the French Alps, with the highest residences in Europe is currently under construction in Val d’Isère. Set to be completed in time for the ski season at the end of 2018, the development is one of many happening in this world famous resort.

“Val d’Isère is arguably undergoing the most amount of change of any resort in the French Alps.” believes Charles Antoine Sialelli French Alps Adviser, Athena Advisers

When completed Le Refuge de Solaise will boast 19 rooms, 3 apartments and a 14-bed dormitory. Perched a whole 800 metres higher than the town centre, the hotel’s guests will be the first to hit the piste (or off-piste) in the morning and will enjoy five hours more sun than the rest of the resort, as well as breathtaking 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains and village below.

In addition to this, the resort’s biggest development to date, Le Coin de Val, is still on course. The 15,000 sqm space will include two 4* hotels, residences (including around 900 beds) and commercial spaces, all of which will greatly improve the aesthetics of this part of the resort.

After an incredible season with a seemingly never ending supply of fresh snow, summer skiing has proved popular this year. Having reopened the pistes in June, skiing carried on until mid July, with neighbouring Tignes’ Grande Motte glacier open until Sunday 5th August. Wow !!!
