We ate at the restaurant in March. We were staying in Val D'Isere town, but this restaurant is slightly out (1 bus stop from the centre of town). On arrival I was a bit concerned we had crashed the hotel guests half board dinner, however I was wrong; lots of dinners were also not staying at the hotel. The staff...

Hi there, Thanks for a great review, We're glad that you enjoyed the restaurant which is open to everyone, in fact the majority of our clients at the restaurant are not hotel guests, We look forward to seeing you again in Val d'Isère, maybe you can come and stay as a half-board hotel guest this time!

We had room 1 and this was perfect for our needs. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the bus stop and then it is only two stops to the ski lifts. In the evening and without ski boots on, the walk into town is a pleasant 10 minute stroll. The view from room 1 is really beautiful. We...

Hotel L'Avancher is a small, family-style hotel in Val D'Isere. I had a single room, which was very small, but was a great price for the resort, and if you're there to sleep, ski, eat and repeat then what do you need? The restaurant is very popular and comfortable serving Savoyard dishes in an attractive, cosy room. I took the...

The single room that you occupied is an absolute gem for anyone like yourself who wishes to "sleep, ski, eat and repeat"! which is exactly what it is designed for.

The overall decor is very chalet like but with slight contemporary touches. The outside of the building has a modern feel. We booked the Comfort room as we heard the rooms were small. The room was still small by cosy. There wasn't much room to put all your ski stuff - would recommend more storage or hanging space. The bathroom...

This hotel has lots of great reviews so we had very high expectations- happily they were all met for our week of skiing over Christmas. It was really great value compared to the rest of the area.

Hi there, Thank you so much for leaving us a review!

Really nice place to stay in wonderful Val D Isere, 50 meters from the Skiing pass ticket office.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel L'Avancher is a wooden chalet, built in 1949 by a visionary, an ambitious construction worker for the Dam of Tignes. Signed over to Charles and Renee Kassenberg in 1958 it was immediately turned into a hotel, making it one of the oldest hotels in Val d'Isere. Their daughter Francoise, spent her childhood in this chalet, making her the natural successor. Today, Fred Monneret has taken over the reins, enhancing the authenticity and hospitality, two of the hotel's most important values. The hotel has 17 rooms, a restaurant, a living-room, a sauna, a ski workshop that turns into a mountain bike workshop in the summer. By the end of January, you can make the most of the sun on the large wooden terrace or the small garden. This chalet, full of history, is regularly renovated, allowing it to combine both authenticity and modernity. A five-minute walk from the town center and 50 meters from the bus stop, this chalet allows you to make the most of the ski resort's animations without having to endure the noisy nightlife. (See map) The slopes are five minutes away and you can ski directly back to the hotel, (depending on snow conditions at the beginning and end of season). ... more   less
