Nestling in a restored Savoyard chalet at the foot of the legendary Face de Bellevarde, Appartement La Canadienne 8 is a designer's dream of the Val d'Isère of yore with trappers, torch-lit descents and fireside tales
Area & Experiences
Val d'Isère nestles in the heart of the Alps at an altitude of 1800 metres. In the old days, the hamlet was completely cut off from the rest of the world during heavy snowfall. The lauze-roofed chalets were covered with snow, and only the stone church steeple could be seen above the immaculate décor. The resort has lost none of its old-world charm with the passage of time and the arrival of cable cars. Located at the foot of the Bellevarde Express, leading all the way to the top of the legendary black piste, Appartement La Canadienne 8 occupies the two top floors of a renovated Savoy chalet.

Beneath the ice
Kitted out in a dry-suit, make your way to a hole carved into the frozen surface of the lake, and plunge into the icy waters. Beneath the surface, led by our expert guides, discover a world of eerie, perfect silence. An incredible experience by day, when the sun’s rays form radiant patterns in the frozen depths, and by night, when the most intrepid adventurers explore the ice by the light of their head torches.
A gastronomic yurt
Hop aboard a snowmobile and follow the secret trail to discover a lonely yurt, lost amid the silence of the summits. Once there, warm up from the journey next to the campfire and prepare for a dinner you’ll never forget. On the menu: local charcuterie and a gastronomic take on the classic fondue, an authentic celebration of the spirit of Savoy.
Follow the dog
What better way to discover the unspoilt peaks than to lead a pack of mountain dogs through the fir forests and over the vast frozen landscapes? All the while, our experienced guides will share inside info and anecdotes to give you a whole new perspective on life in the High Alps and these magnificent dogs.
