Unlike the majority of other high altitude French resorts, Val d’Isere is not un unattractive, purpose built base. It is a traditional village with a charming and vibrant atmosphere. Popular with many nationalities, Val d’isere is a cosmopolitan place with plenty to offer skiers from a wide demographic and it is an eternal favourite of seasonaires due not only to the quality of the ski terrain but the ambience of the village too.
Val is home to the best apres ski in France including the original Folie Douce, above La Daille. Other popular places include The Bluenote, The Fall-Line bar, Le Petit Danois and the Arctic Juice bar. In addition to Apres ski, there is a modern gym, aquatic centre and climbing wall for more active off slope pursuits.
