Val d'Isere Ski Holidays

At a resort height of 1850m, Val d'Isere is part of the Espace Killy region alongside the resort of Tignes. As a whole, the Espace Killy has a total piste distance of more than 300km and two glaciers.

Val d'Isere's early and late snow records are among the best in Europe, making up a huge part of the resort's appeal to skiers across the continent and beyond. It's little wonder this French mountain village has won the hearts of so many.

The Atmosphere of Val d'Isere

One of the other things that draws skiers and others to Val d'Isere is the beauty of the traditional village around which the resort has grown up. It's rare to find a French resort of any size with that old-fashioned feel, and perhaps one of the reasons Val d'Isere manages is that its position as host of the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, making the slopes here very prestigious. If it’s the resort feel you’re looking for, though, don't worry – ski in ski out accommodation is available throughout, in chalet, hotel, and apartment form.

The Ski Resort Of Val d'Isere

The resort itself is made up of three main areas; La Daille, the resort's unnamed centre (which in itself is made up of smaller, named neighbourhoods), and Le Fornet. La Daille is located at the entrance to the resort, near the end of the Olympic downhill runs.  After passing through La Daille you will enter into Val d'Isere's central areas, including the picturesque neighbourhoods of  Le Cret, Le Legettaz, Le Josery, Le Chatelard, and the exclusive Bellevarde Cliffs (or Millionaires' Row as the locals call it) and then, beyond the church, is the beautiful Le Fornet.

La Daille is chiefly made up of self catered apartments with one or two catered chalets & hotels mixed in, where Le Fornet is nigh-exclusively comprised of beautiful traditional chalets. More variety is found in the central area which contains a good mix of apartments, chalets and hotels.

Getting Around Val d'Isere

Many resorts don't differentiate between sections so strongly, but Val d'Isere's areas are a fascinating and beguiling mix of styles and slopes. It's also worth bearing in mind the number of clubs and bars in the centre of town as well as the relaxing and convenient ski down to La Daille that caps off an afternoon at the Folie Douce, Val d'Isere's top apres bar. Le Fornet, by contrast, has an unbeatable advantage for dedicated skiers – immediate cable car access.

Don't be too concerned about getting from point to point, though; the bus service in town runs well into the night and will never leave you waiting for long. There really isn't a bad part of town to stay in.
