Best luxury hotel in France

Hotel Le Val Thorens in Val Thorens

Framed postcards hang on every bedroom’s velvet feature walls, and a colourful chandelier sparkles around an atrium-style lobby full of mismatched sofas and cow-hide rugs. Upmarket, bright and full of artistic touches, this slopeside hotel definitely doesn’t hold back on decoration.

And forget self-service evening meals, as both onsite restaurants are à la carte. Le Val Thorens brasserie serves up market-fresh dishes like salmon tartare and foie gras terrine, while La Fondue does exactly what it says on the tin – cheese, cheese and more cheese.

Hotel Alpina in Obergurgl

This spacious, modern hotel overlooks the town of Obergurgl, and has direct access to and from the slopes. And après doesn’t have to be about dancing on bars when you can kick back in the 1,300m² Alpina Mar spa. A dip in the bubbling hot tub is partnered up with panoramic views of the slopes, while a handful of hot, dry saunas and fragrant steam rooms are found around every corner.

Then there’s the hotel lounge. Plush armchairs and sofas encircle a roaring open fire, making it perfect for a nightcap and a catch-up on the day’s mountain stories.

Park Piolets Mountain Hotel & Spa in Soldeu

Family-friendly and fashionable, this 4-star foodie hotel has fabulous views of Soldeu’s slopes. Tuck in to stylish rooms complete with tartan cushions and low-hanging lamps. And many of them have superb views of the mountains. The tablets can stay in the suitcase too, as the kids can lark about in their very own soft play area or enjoy family time in the comfy lobby bar.

Days are rounded off at the 1817 restaurant, a scrumptious buffet with show cooking zones and pleasant views of Grandvalira’s slopes. For something a bit different, sample Chinese haute cuisine at Kao – think dim sum, noodles and crispy apple tempura.

Hotel Tyrol in Selva Val Gardena

A 4.5-star hotel rooted in local culture, with superb wellness facilities and delectable cuisine. Founded in 1966, this opulent hotel has become quite the family-run success. Here, the local Ladin culture is ingrained through wood cladding and natural stone décor. If you look carefully, you’ll spot plenty of rare relics dotted about too, like the old, ornate stove in the aromatic sauna.

Tyrolean and Ladin influences are also carved into the food. Under the direction of Chef Allesandro Martellini, the Suinsom and Ty Bistro restaurants theme their dishes around the majestic Dolomites, using unique flavours from smoked deer tartare to fermented black garlic.
