Skiing with Kids? Our best luxury catered ski chalets in Val d’Isère for families

Travelling with your young and young at heart family members to Val d’Isère this winter is exciting but with so many different ski chalets to choose from it can quickly become a headache. We’ve picked out three of our own luxury catered chalets in Val d’Isère to highlight what makes them favourites when skiing as a family.

Best for Ski School:
Hands down, Chalet Shar Pei is the best Luxury Ski Chalet in Val d’Isère when it comes to getting the VIP skiers of your group to ski school in the morning. Located in a slope side position and with sweeping views of the renowned Le Face and Solaise ski runs, just stumble out the front door and you’re only a few steps away from those all important meeting point flags. And if you wish to ski with private instructors, well they can meet you at the chalet and even help carry skis! Older kids travelling with you? Chalet Shar Pei again ticks all the boxes as the bunk beds are adult sized and with a central village location the late night stumble back is even easier for night owls. Chalet Shar Pei is suitable for groups of up to ten people and prices start from EUR 2700 per person.

Best for the whole family:
It has to be Chalet Calistoga which was also voted one of the top 10 best Luxury Ski chalets in Europe by The Telegraph in 2019. There really is something for everyone in this expansive 350sqm stand alone chalet. Boasting two TV snugs, it’s easy to find some quiet time if needed or tuck the little (and not so little) ones up for movie night with hot chocolates and toasted marshmallows. But really, the spa in Chalet Calistoga is the true highlight. Descend down and you’re greeted by a stunning swimming pool and relaxation area; a hit with all family members and plenty of space to partake or spectate. Achy muscles? Indulge in your own private sauna or take a massage in your private massage suite. With five en-suite bedrooms sleeping up to 10 people this really is the perfect chalet for your next large family ski holiday. Prices start from EUR 2800 per person.

Best value for families
Family ski trips are about being together and enjoying those precious holiday moments and memories but it can be expensive; we get it. And that’s why Chalet Grand Sarire remains one of our best selling chalets and being our first ever chalet, is very special to us with so many of our guests having stayed there over the years. Sleeping up to sixteen people and an expansive 350sqm, Chalet Grand Sarire has the largest open living and dining area of our portfolio and is perfect for multi generational ski trips or large groups of friends travelling together with their families. The back garden is a hit with kids wanting to build the all important Snowman whilst you relax on from the hot tub, well positioned to watch with a cool glass of rose in hand. The best bit? Prices start from EUR 1750 per person and include all of the fabulous Hip Hideouts services.

This winter, get your crew together and bag-ski your favourite spot.
