An extraordinary place to stay in Val d’Isère

Inaugurated in 2003, the hotel Les Barmes de l’Ours was born out of an immense love of the mountains. This family hotel at the foot of the ski slopes provides a comprehensive offer in a combination of gourmet dining, relaxation, well-being and a love of sport. Each winter, the staff prepares for the arrival of its guests down to the last detail, providing an excellent, discreet service with the added touch of those little extras that make every stay at Les Barmes a unique experience. 

Les Barmes de l’Ours :
Nature, calm and authenticity

Leave the snow of the larch-lined ski slopes behind to take refuge in this five-star hotel where it feels good to warm up by the fireside. Overlooking the village of Val d’Isère, it offers an atmosphere of calm and serenity.

The hotel has reinvented itself every season since its creation in tandem with local crafts people, while retaining its feel of a mountainside hotel in Savoie. Considerable importance is given to the decoration, the woodwork and the rough stonework, as well as the balance between tradition and modernity. Each and every detail recalls the surrounding immensity, the reliefs of the mountains, the wood from the forests and water cascading among the rocks.

Its four floors, with 49 rooms and 27 suites, each stamped with their own identity, satisfy the desires and tastes of every traveller. The Scandinavian spirit, the lodge from the far north of the Americas, the alpine chalet and the contemporary loft are all worlds in which you can make the most of the passing time and recharge your batteries at Les Barmes de l’Ours.

Lifestyle à la française

Gourmet dining, the foundation stone of lifestyle à la française, is presented in the hotel’s three restaurants orchestrated by the chef Antoine Gras.
Awaken your taste buds in the understated elegance of la Table de l’Ours, where the head waiter, will take you on a journey to the rhythms of the Michelin-starred dishes of our Chef. Succumb to the traditional spit-roasted meats in La Rôtisserie or enjoy the full-on Alpine experience in the comfortable Coin Savoyard as you savour our regional specialities.
