Val d’Isere is the hedonistic brother of Tignes, the two alpine villages that make up one of the most iconic of all the Savoie ski resorts: The Espace Killy. Come here to spend your mornings carving S-bends in some of the most famous slopes in the French Alps, your afternoons enjoying après ski sessions in La Folie Douce, and your evenings bubbling away in your private Jacuzzi.
A luxury chalet in Val d’Isere gives you access to the vast Espace Killy, with its whopping 300 kilometres of marked runs spread across the gorgeous Tarentaise Valley. It’s known around the globe for its challenging off-piste above the tree line, but it also flaunts over 50 marked runs for beginners and intermediates closer to the valley floor.
Up high, there are bustling mountain huts that serve steaming vin chaud and hearty mountain foods on the side of the slopes. Down below, in the centre of Val d’Isere itself, you’ll get to hit some seriously lively après and nightlife venues, from the packed dancefloors of Dick’s Tea Bar to the live music stages of Le Petit Danois.
With its ski season running from November to late-April/early May, it is one of the most snow-sure and sought-after resorts in Europe.
Beyond the slopes, you can explore the stunning natural beauty of the Vanoise National Park. Named back in 1963, it was France’s first-ever national park, designated for the variety of habitats that swirl around the glacier of the Grande Casse mountain. There are hiking paths that will take you through thick pine woods and craggy ridge walks where you’ll wander where ibex roam the meadows.
We have curated a careful selection of luxury ski chalet rentals in Val d’Isere. They offer the height of indulgence right by the gondolas and the runs, touting heated swimming pools, private spas, and well-stocked wine cellars that’ll keep you tasting the finest French labels from check-in to check-out.
