Nestled in Le Fornet, a quaint and residential ancestral hamlet, Chalet Orca stands as one of the jewels in Cimalpes' exclusive collection, alongside its counterpart, Chalet Merveilles. Gazing across from the Les Boisses ski slopes, this ski-in/ski-out sanctuary is a haven for those who crave swift and exhilarating access to the resort, ensuring you're among the first to carve fresh tracks through the snow.

Chalet Orca is a masterpiece by "Le Mouton à Bascule," a complex of two exceptional chalets, a unique treasure in the French Alps. It undoubtedly ranks among the resort's most splendid creations, boasting amenities and services on par with the most distinguished hotels.

The chalet's location ensures a sun-drenched ambiance year-round, with expansive floor-to-ceiling windows offering a 180-degree panorama that redefines your connection to the surroundings.

The first floor greets you with a grand entrance adorned with ample storage spaces. A ski room featuring old wood and black metal elements beckons on the right. The stone staircase, enhanced by aged wooden railings, leads your gaze upward, adding a distinctive touch to the décor. The children's dormitories, adorned in old wood with artisanal Arpin decoration, offer a cozy view and ensure their comfort.

Access between floors can be effortlessly achieved through either the elevator or the staircase. On the lower level, a splendid glass-encased wine cellar resides beneath the stairs. Here, you'll also discover an unparalleled wellness sanctuary – take a dip in the infinity pool, luxuriate in the stone jacuzzi with its tiled seating, or find solace in the sauna, steam room, and fully equipped gym. It's a haven of well-being and rejuvenation, promising an extraordinary experience.

The upper floor unveils four magnificent bedrooms. The first bedroom presents a breathtaking view of Le Fornet hamlet and the forest through its bay window. Its ensuite bathroom features a shower with double basins and a waterfall tap. The second bedroom, boasting a view next to the bed, is enhanced by a freestanding bathtub. The third bedroom offers a spacious Italian shower measuring 2 meters by 1.50 meters. The pièce de résistance is the master bedroom – imagine relaxing in the freestanding bathtub beside a crackling fireplace, gazing at the Old Village of Le Fornet through the windows. This suite also includes an Italian shower and a double basin.

On this level, a peripheral balcony unfolds, providing one of the most magnificent views. Facing south, atop the Fornet, you'll relish sights of the Old Village below, the forest, the meandering Fornet stream, the lofty "Le Signal" restaurant at the peak of the ski lift, and the Saint-Charles Bridge to the East. It's an exceptional panorama that continues to captivate.

The uppermost floor introduces a unique feature, never before seen in the resort: diamond-shaped windows measuring 6 meters in width and 6 meters in height, crafted from heat-treated glass to optimize comfort and light. This lounge invites cherished moments with loved ones, where you can relax on the ample sofa against the bay window, indulging in the splendid view. The living room's walls, essentially a bay window, offer a 180-degree panorama, immersing you entirely in the heart of Val d'Isère. An extraordinary three-sided glass fireplace, designed to provide a 180-degree panoramic view of the fire, imparts a warm touch that enhances your experience throughout the chalet. The curtains and bed linings, custom-made by the Atelier des Frères, further elevate the chalet's soul.

The semi-independent kitchen, isolated by an aged wood bar, boasts contemporary stone and exceptional quality. It offers direct access to the terrace, affording a magnificent valley view. The chalet's private chef, dedicated to serving you a comprehensive breakfast to fuel your day on the slopes and introducing regional specialties, enhances your culinary experience. Chalet Orca ensures the epitome of luxury with a private driver, butler, and housekeeper, all contributing to an unparalleled stay.

A metal staircase ascends to the mezzanine, featuring a pool table, bar, arcade table, and TV screen. The mezzanine offers a splendid outlook over the Old Village and overlooks the living room.

Completing this idyllic residence is a spacious garage accommodating up to four cars.

Chalet Orca stands as a dream retreat for an enchanting sojourn in the heart of the French

"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
