The experience

Mademoiselle Val d’Isère, creating medieval chic with local craftsmen

Tissu artisanal Mademoiselle Val d'Isère

Lying at the heart of the French Alps, the 5-star hotel Mademoiselle will open its doors to the public on 19th December 2019, revealing a uniquely magical world built around grandiose rooms and a poetic medieval identity. Through the clever use of materials, antique decorations, finely crafted wooden ornaments and opulent fabrics, guests are taken on a captivating adventure back through time and deep into the enchanting white kingdom.

With its values and attention to detail deeply rooted in its home region, Mademoiselle called upon the services of the best local craftsmen to create its authentic atmosphere.

The hundreds of rare items of furniture and decoration include one-off pieces especially designed by expert upholsterer and textile designer Annecy Indigo Diffusion: curtains, headboards and handmade period fabrics have all been fabricated and assembled in their workshops over the last two years.


Creating and recreating such rare pieces using traditional techniques and savoir-faire allowed all these artisans to immerse themselves in their local history…

Creating and recreating such rare pieces using traditional techniques and savoir-faire allowed all these artisans to immerse themselves in their local history as well as relive the richness of their art and the creativity of their forebearers. A perfect example is the bottom hem of the curtains, handmade by expert seamstresses: this now scarce savoir-faire accentuates the beauty of each room’s drapes and hides the seams to focus attention on the fabric.

Local Coffee Mademoiselle Val d'Isère

For the epicureans, Mr and Mrs Tutel’s dairy shop chooses from the best producers every day to fill the gigantic cheese platters at Mademoiselle’s restaurants, while breakfast is served with coffee tailor made by the specialist roasters at Folliet. This organic roasted green coffee is available throughout the hotel, in espresso form in each restaurant, and in the Jura coffee machines in the rooms.


Local artists such as painter Laurent Tardy were also invited…

Local artists such as painter Laurent Tardy were also invited, resulting in a fresco of the magical forest of Broceliande adorning the walls of the Children’s Kingdom and completing the full immersion into the hotel’s fairy-tale world.

Val d’Isère is full of local artisans who are passionate and enthusiastic about their craft. A community that everyone at Mademoiselle wants to support, with the aim of preserving tradition while embracing modernity in the quest for excellence.

Opening on December 19, 2019.
