Val d’Isère and the Espace Killy has a reputation as being one of the best ski areas in the world, making it one of the most popular resorts. In particular the Brits flock to Val d’Isere and neighbouring Tignes where they ski hard all day and party hard all night.
The ski terrain has plenty to offer all standards and there are many activities available for non-skiers too, making it a great base for one and all. With one of the longest seasons in the Alps, Val d’Isère welcomes winter guests from the end of November through to early May.
The original village dates back to the eleventh century and has continued to grow ever since. In more recent years traditional building materials have been favoured once again, so the resort as a whole is becoming prettier year on year. As a result there is a wide selection of hotels and luxury ski chalets in Val d’Isère to suit all size groups and budgets.
There are a number of satellite villages based outside of the main resort, with a free local bus service connecting these and the ski area throughout the day and well into the night. For a real day out head over to Tignes les Brévières for lunch. By the time you are back at base in Val you will have clocked up some impressive mileage under your skis.Read less
