We are always on the lookout for properties with the latest thing or "tendances" as the French say and today we added a fabulous chalet in Val d'Isère which has a couple of very trendy features to our range of around 200 ski chalets and apartments in France.
The first is a glass bubble sauna which allows you to enjoy fabulous views of the mountains whilst you are sweating in the dry heat after a day skiing on some of the finest slopes in the French Alps. That in itself was pretty smart we thought.
The second is a Nordic bath which is meant to complement the sauna, that really caught our attention. It immediately begged the question. What is a Nordic bath? Well, its a specially designed, natural wooden tub which contains water heated to around 40 degrees into which you plunge in order to relax after the sauna and if you can brave it, the cold shower.
Here is an article explaining the virtues of a Nordic Bath.
The pleasures of relaxing in a Nordic bath we felt were close to those of a Jacuzzi or hot tub so we decided to add it to our special section on chalets with hot tub or Jacuzzi. It features a choice of around 30 chalets with these relaxation luxuries in the top ski resorts in France, to help you easily find one for your next skiing holiday.
The new addition chalet in Val is the MONVA1202 Val d'Isere chalet pour 12 which sleeps 12 in 5 bedrooms, it is 100 metres from the slopes and ski lift, 2 km from the resort centre. Prices range from 7815 to 13045 € which is pretty good for a luxury chalet in such a prestigious resort. There is decent availability too at the moment as it's only just started renting.
As winter approaches we will be adding a number of carefully selected chalets and apartments to our range so do keep an eye on our facebook page as you will most likely find them highlighted there.
