The Yule is right in the beating heart of Val d’isere, but feels remote, like it’s right on the edge of skiers’ paradise due it’s South facing aspect towards the mountains. The convenience and views alone would make the hotel a desirable place to stay, however there is a lot more to the experience. It’s skilfully managed by a great team, many of whom we’ve known for years from their positions at various resorts across France. The unpretentious designer feel is soothing and ‘just right’. The relaxing Spa, canapés by the fire, the clever wine list, the balanced and delicious menu in Le Solstice, the uber cool rooms. We are a big fans of this hotel. And they partner up with Porsche, so why not test drive the latest from Stuttgart on the amazing road between Val d’Isere and Tignes.
