Ask five different skiers what their favourite alpine destination is and we'll bet our precious lift passes you'll get five firm votes for Les Trois Valées. After a day spent whizzing down the slopes, there's no better feeling than crashing at a cosy, chic pad. Step forward, M Lodge. Sitting pretty in the tranquil town of Saint-Martin-De-Belleville, the property has 25 guest rooms done up with timber-clad walls, faux-fur headboards, stone floors and floor-to-ceiling windows flaunting dramatic mountain vistas. You'll also find purchasable artworks by native artist and gallerist Amélie du Chalard, walk-in-wardrobe spaces and Milky Way light installations. Downstairs, a slick spa comes complete with a well-equipped gym, treatment rooms, sauna and swimming pool - sore muscles, be gone. The pièce de résistance, however, has got to be the dining room, with its mirrored ceilings, marble walls and mish-mash of snug seating choices - and an appropriately elevated food and drink offering.
