Hotel Le Samovar
With its situation opposite the lifts in La Daille this small and friendly hotel offers a quieter alternative to the hustle and bustle (and noise) of the centre of Val d'Isere. If you are more interested in being the first to the top of the mountain in the morning rather than being the last to leave Dicks Tea bar at night then this may be the perfect choice.
Most of the 19 rooms are twins (doubles on request) and some are family duplex rooms taking two adults and up to two children on a mezzanine level. The half board meal plan gives you 6 dinners and 1 lunch (it's easy to ski back to the hotel during the day).
The fact that this hotel is in La Daille is in our opinion a big plus. The lifts are opposite the hotel and you get into the ski system quicker than most. The hotel is well appointed and the food and service very good.
There is a cosy lounge, bar with open fireplace, brasserie/pizzeria with good wine list and sauna. There is also a garage for those that drive out to resort (there is a supplementary charge for this).
