Luxury Ski Chalets in Val d'Isere

Call 01242 547 705 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Linked with the resort of Tignes to form the formidable ski area of L’Espace Killy, named after the equally formidable 1963 three times French Olympic gold medal winner, Jean-Claude Killy, Val d’Isere is a ‘must-see’ and ‘must-ski’ resort. The high altitude of L’Espace Killy and the sheer size of the area has led to it becoming affectionately known as 'le plus bel espace de ski au monde' - translating literally as 'the most beautiful ski area in the world'. With over 300 km of groomed pistes and a magnitude of off-piste powder, Val d’Isere boasts one of the longest winter seasons of the Alps with guaranteed snow covering from end of November through to the end of April. Val d’Isere’s nightlife begins with proportions of après ski that will leave you spoilt for choice. From lively bars positioned in the middle of the pistes to the funky venues of Dick’s Tea Bar and Cafe Face located nearer the town. The entertainment ranges from the simple to the sophisticated, the classic to the crazy and for those who prefer the quieter life there are a number of piano bars and cocktail lounges to ensure you a slice of the evening pie!

Free lifts - For the less confident there are the free ski lifts at the base of the resort

Helicopter flight - There is a Heli Pad between the centre of town and the village of La Daille so taking a helicopter flight might just be a little easier than first thought. Soaring up above the mountains, toward the eye of the needle in Tignes, it really is an incredible experience

Ice Climbing - If you are a complete novice or a super sporty there is something for everyone. You will be taken up by one of the mountain pros and taught how to tackle the elements of the frozen waterfall

Dog Sledging - You will be given a brief lesson in how to control your team of dogs then you will head out in convoy on your tour of the snowy piste. If you don’t feel comfortable controlling your one sleigh you can opt to sit in and be driven by an instructor

Snowshow hiking - A tour of the mountain with your snow shoes, led by an instructor. You will see some incredible views. A fantastic activity for those who don’t ski

Cross country skiing - The track is based at the edge of the village of Val, it is very well groomed and can be a very good way to burn off the fondue from last night

Paragliding - With many activity companies in resort it is easy to book a paragliding flight. Running from the top of the mountain, soaring back down into the valley, it will be certainly be something to tick off the bucket list

Ice rink - Based at the bottom of the pistes, just above the town centre is a natural ice rink. Well lit so you can ice skate into the early evening it is a great way to work up your appetite for supper

Ice driving circuit - Racing a BMW around an ice circuit is a very different way to spend an hour or so. You can pick the size and style of car you drive and can slide your way across the track

TIPPING SUGGESTIONS
In restaurants a service charge is built into menu prices. However, it's customary to round up amounts when paying the waiter or waitress if you're happy with the service. This means that you might hand the server EUR 50 for a EUR 47 meal. If you're paying by credit card, hand the server a cash tip of up to 5%. For Taxis as in restaurants, round up or add 5% when you're happy with the service. Tips to your chalet staff are entirely at your discretion.
