Rent Chalet Shiva France | Holiday Villa & Chateau With Pool

Chalet Shiva France


Rent The Best Luxury Holiday Villas

Magnificent Villa Shiva sleeps up to 14 adults and 1 child in seven stunning en suite bedrooms and a children’s room. It is located in Le Crêt - a small traditional hamlet of Val d'Isère, nestled into the hillside, surrounded by beautiful mountains and offering spectacular views over Val d'Isère itself. The ski lifts, all the shops and bustling centre are only a three-minute drive away but this quiet nook hosts traditional farmhouses that have been converted and filled with absolute luxury - for the best mountain holiday experience possible.

Having been renovated only a few years ago, the pivotal focus here was bringing out traditional and natural materials such as metal, stone, wood with leather and wool on the fabric side - and offsetting them with some fantastic contemporary appliances. You can find quite a few traditional and local objects such as old cider press, now reincarnated as a coffee table or wonderful Beaufort cheese casings, now serving as low hanging, dining area lights. You will gasp upon entering the main living floor. The focal point here is the double height of its sofa area, supported by enormous windows with some fantastic views. The views of the peaks are magnified by the chalet’s extra elevated location - absolutely spectacular.

There is more than enough relaxing space for everyone on huge and comfortable sofas, the dining table seating fourteen is nearby alongside an impressive bar - perfect spaces for pre dinner aperitif. Unless you would like to take it to the hot tub, also on this floor, via balconies. Best views just before dinner? Perfect. Anyone missing cinematic experience? A sound-proof cinema room is also here, complete with tiered seating - just like the real thing. Up from here, on the mezzanine - there are two fantastic bedrooms, both en suite, a snug reading corner as well as games area with two comfy leather armchairs. Down one floor from the living area, you will find further four bedrooms, one with a children's annex, all en suite and all decorated impeccably. A floor below houses one more bedroom which could potentially be the most fought for, since it shares the floor with a stunning indoor swimming pool with a waterfall and counter current system, hammam, massage area, and a gym.
Val d’Isere is one of the most famous ski destinations in the world. This alpine playground in the heart of the French Alps offers some of the best skiing in the world. It is also one of the highest and most snow-sure resorts in the French Alps, sitting at an altitude of 1850m and offering quick access to numerous glaciers, some of which are even open for summer skiing. The resort has an enviable snow record and can be relied on to provide world-class skiing from the end of November through to the beginning of May. The ski terrain on offer is incredibly varied and, combined with the neighbouring resort of Tignes, makes up the Tignes-Val d'Isère ski area which ranks among the largest ski areas in the world, with over 300km of pistes.

The resort itself is a combination of sophisticated and modern with historic (with a charming 17th century church at its heart) and enjoys a spectacular natural setting, at the bottom of a steep valley and flanked by dramatic cliffs and the lovely Lac du Chevril at its entrance. As well as being a skier's paradise, Val d'Isère has plenty to offer for non-skiers. Several of the ski lifts are pedestrian-friendly, providing access to mountain restaurants and scenic walks around the Lac de l'Ouillette and the Col de l'Iseran. There is a magical outdoor ice-skating rink, the Centre Aquasportif, a bowling alley, snowmobiling and even ice diving to try. Alternatively, simply unwind in your chalet's private pool and wellness area, or enjoy a massage from one of our masseuses.

Val d'Isère's attractive centre is a great place for a wander and is renowned for its excellent restaurants, bars and good selection of shops. Foodies won't be disappointed by the Michelin starred offering in this gastronomic resort, which counts L'Atelier d'Edmond and La Table de l'Ours among its fine dining establishments. There are also plenty of restaurants serving simpler and less formal fare, such as pizza or Savoyard specialities such as fondue, raclette or tartiflette. The nightlife in Val d'Isère is focused on Cocorico, Le Petit Danois and Dick's Tea Bar, but there are a multitude of elegant bars for a quieter drink too. Try La Mourra or Le Blizzard! In terms of shopping, you can buy everything from local cheese and vintage wines to designer ski wear and fine art. You can bring your own equipment with you or alternatively, shop for it or rent it.
The catering at Chalet Shiva is among the finest in the Alps and the owners take pride in an outstanding reputation for food and wine. The wine list is composed by the acclaimed Master of Wine and owner of Savage Selection wines, Mark Savage. Mark brings interesting, small production wines to the table, all deeply characteristic of their origin and beautifully paired with our food.  Unlimited Champagne is included in the stay and following blind taste tests the owners chose to serve Taittinger and Veuve Clicquot.
