A ‘street art’ chalet in Tignes
Once again, designer Mickaël Mériguet has broken the rules of mountain chalets with his Banksy Tribute Chalet - a genuine 430m² masterpiece boasting 4 suites that combine luxury with eccentricity. The chalet immerses you in the world of English artist Banksy, an enigmatic character and graffiti urban legend. It is home to three original artworks, including two paintings and a £10 note customised by Bansky himself and is a real homage to the international Street Art scene that is such an inspiration to its owner. An indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam room complete this exceptional chalet. 
Revamped wood-clad style in Val d’Isère
The Hôtel l’Avancher***, which was entirely rebuilt last summer, will be celebrating its first summer season in 2018. The décor is welcoming, modern and lavishly adorned with wood, housing 37 bedrooms sized between 24m² and 61m², featuring everything required for a cosy stay. For more independence while retaining the quality and comfort of hotel services, the lodges are an easy way for groups and families to be accommodated in spacious apartments. As for flavour and friendliness, gourmet cuisine using fresh local produce is available in the restaurant, in addition to a wine bar and lounge area with a fireplace. The added bonus is the spa with wonderful views and a locked bicycle rack. 
A mountain refuge with all mod cons in Les Menuires
The Lac du Lou mountain refuge has had a makeover and been extended with the addition of a new building that means it can now accommodate a total of thirty people. From the 16th of June until the 16th of September, it invites guests to discover its welcoming, authentic atmosphere with simple, generous, quality cuisine. Greater comfort, more space and a fresh feel for the two rooms for 4 people, the rooms for 5 and 7 people and the independent 12-person dormitory, which is available for private hire.
Situated in a little wild valley on the shore of the largest lake in the Belleville Valley, the mountain refuge is easily accessible in an hour’s walk with a 250-metre vertical climb along a wide path from the Chez Pépé Nicolas refuge, or from Les Bruyères artificial lake via a little mountainside path.
