A world famous ski resort and destination about 3 hours drive from both Grenoble and Geneva.
Thanks to the extensive lift network which connects Val d’Isère with neighbouring Tignes, the resort boasts easy access to more than 300km of slopes which range from challenging pistes for advanced skiers to gentle slopes geared towards intermediates and beginners. Experienced skiers should check out La Face, a notoriously challenging black run that was built for the 1992 Albertville Winter Olympic Games.
This resort also has an electric après-ski culture with a dizzying array of top Michelin-star restaurants and bars. One of the most iconic après-ski spots is La Folie Douce which is located at the top of the Daille Gondola and has bars, various eateries and, of course, live music.
The centre itself has plenty to offer too including a huge themed sports centre with swimming pools and sports courts. For some indulgent rest and relaxation, there are several spas scattered throughout the resort where you can treat yourself to a restorative treatment or simply switch off and relax – try Le Refuge de Solaise (the highest hotel in France!).
