Ski holidays in Val d’Isere

Perhaps France’s most famous resort, it’s easy to see why Val d’Isere has such a good reputation for it offers its visitors so much; from incredible ski conditions and first-rate amenities to some of the world’s most luxurious properties all within a traditional alpine village setting, enjoy a winter break in Val d’Isere and you’re sure to return year after year.

Offering a warm and inviting feel, it is perhaps the old-world charm of Val d’Isere that draws in so many visitors, many of whom return year on year to this traditional alpine town. Perfectly placed along the border of Italy it benefits from a fine amount of snow coverage, particularly end of season and with around 96 lifts, you’ll get plenty of time to ski, particularly as you can ski back to the centre of the resort until the end of April.

Après ski

The main street in Val d’Isere runs right through the centre and the entire length of the town and much for the post-ski action takes place here. A lively destination, there’s plenty to entertain every kind of visitor; families can enjoy a trip to the cinema or indulge in some shopping whilst there are a number of bars for those who wish to wind down with a drink after a day of excursion. Every Thursday the centre of town is pedestrianized to make room for a street fair and entertainments.

Eating out

Many of the restaurants offer local Savoyard cuisine which is very popular and which they of course do very well but if you’re likely to tire of the rich cheese and cured meats easily then there are plenty of other options; brassieres and fine dining for those wishing to sample the finest in local produce or for more relaxed dining and atmosphere, there’s not only a great creperie but other options such as sushi and a pizzeria.

Non-ski activities

If you fancy a day away from your board or skis you’ll still find plenty to do. For some time away from the elements there are a number of indoor activities available such as yoga or swimming or for the more active, the indoor climbing centre is always a popular destination. But for a day of sheer decadence, why not stroll around the local boutiques and finish off the day with a spa treatment…now that sounds like a holiday!

Summer season

Summer in the French mountains is still as lively and active as the winter months, so you won’t be short of things to do. Families can really benefit by visiting at this time of year as there are a great many ways to keep the children entertained outdoors; donkey trekking is a firm favourite! And for thrill-seekers the options are endless – canoeing, rafting and glacier trekking could all be on the agenda.
