Winner - 2023 World Ski Awards  

Award-Winning Luxury Chalet Machapuchare has been named France’s Best Ski Chalet at the 2023 World Ski Awards, recognising it as one of the most luxurious chalets available to rent in the Alps and beyond.


Nestled in the exclusive and wonderfully private area of Le Crêt, Chalet Machapuchare commands uninterrupted views of the entire valley, from the rocky cliffs above La Daille across pretty Val d'Isère to the glaciers and snowcapped peaks beyond. The pistes, shops and nightlife are just a three-minute chauffeured minibus drive away.

Completed in 2018, the chalet sleeps 14-15 guests in 7 en-suite bedrooms plus an additional children's bunk room. The attention to detail throughout the chalet is one of its highlights, with a focus on natural materials such as wood, stone, wool, metal and leather. Many of the pieces have been handcrafted by the owner or are repurposed from traditional local objects, such as a coffee table fashioned from an old-fashioned cider press, or light fittings made from wooden Beaufort cheese casings.

The focal point of the chalet is its dramatic double height sitting room, with enormous windows affording panoramas of the surrounding peaks. The cleverly designed space comprises ample seating on large comfortable sofas, a generous dining area, a well-stocked bar, reading and games corners on the mezzanine and wraparound balconies giving access to the hot tub, which is blessed with arguably the best views in the valley.

The chalet's other spa facilities include a stunning indoor swimming pool with a waterfall and counter current system, hammam, massage area, and well-equipped gym. Next door is the sound-proofed cinema room with tiered seating, completing the round-up of superb facilities that make Machapuchare an exceptional luxury retreat in Val d'Isère.



In the Le Crêt area of Val d'Isère. A 3 minute chauffeured minibus ride from the centre of Val d'Isère, 2 minutes from the lifts at La Daille, or 5 minutes from l'Olympique or Solaise Express.

Exquisite Food & Wine

The food offered is largely what sets a holiday with Purple Ski apart. Eating at Purple Ski has always been a memorable experience, akin to eating in a top quality restaurant.

We truly aim to deliver the best food in the Alps and succeed in this - we were the overall winners of The Times Chalet Chef 2010 award and so our food has been independently rated as the best in the Alps, but our standards have improved hugely even since then and our reputation in the ski chalet industry is unparalleled. As a result, we are able to attract extraordinary chefs, passionate about food and about delighting you!

Beautiful food deserves only the finest wine, which is why our 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. What better way to end a fantastic day on the slopes?
