Whilst French station of Val d’Isère is primarily known for its amazing skiing, the old town is sure to work its magic on you, too. Authentic stone and wooden-clad chalets, stylish shops and hotels are dotted around an enchanting and vibrant high street. Bars and quality restaurants abound, including one boasting no less than 2 Michelin stars!
With its three distinctive areas, this is the place to go for great access to the slopes and high-end après-ski action. Not forgetting that Val D’Isère’s many designer outlets will give you the perfect excuse to shop around for an outfit to replace the one you just happen to have left back home!

The old town of Val d’Isère consists of typical stone and wooden-clad chalets, high-end shops and charming hotels, all centred around a buzzing high street. Its quality bars and restaurants make it the perfect place to sample local produce; from Alpine génépi liqueur to an array of emblematic cheese-dishes… It’s the cherry on top a perfect skiing experience.
Located just a few kilometers up the valley from the old town centre, the incredibly pretty village of Le Fornet boasts charmingly typical French chalets and Val d’Isère’s world class 2 star Michelin restaurant. And not only is Le Fornet a treat for the eyes and taste-buds – it’s also home to all of the resort’s fantastic tree runs. What more could you want?
If it’s a change of scene you’re after, then welcome to La Daille. Located just outside the main village of Val d’Isère, its free bus service ensures effortless access to and from the rest of the resort. La Daille’s two main lifts and funicular take you directly to the top of the Bellevarde, while a gondola ferries you straight to the world famous La Folie Douce. Think the “mild madness” of a mini Ibiza scene up the Alps – bright lights, late nights and Moonboots… La Folie Douce comes to life like no other après bar!
