A world-renowned ski resort that has retained the heart and soul of the small mountain village it once was…
Val d’Isere is the gateway to the Val d’Isere – Tignes area. It’s in the center of the Savoie region in South-Eastern France. Val d’Isere is an internationally renowned destination. It has retained its charm and authenticity. Val d’Isere is a genuine winter wonderland from the end of November to the beginning of May each year. The snow is sure because the town is standing at an altitude of 6,070 ft.
Val d’Isere is an authentic Alpine village with the facilities and comfort of a large resort. Its baroque church, traditional houses, the surrounding mountains and the Isere river flowing through its center have long been the inspiration for local architects. The village today consists of an elegant mixture of luxury hotels, holiday residences, traditional alpine chalets. They are built from stone and wood, and some altogether more contemporary structures.
With two-thirds of its ski inside the heart of the Vanoise National Park, nature and the rhythm of the seasons govern Val d’Isere. The resort is working hard to preserve the biodiversity of the planet. It’s socially responsible and respectful of the environment.
The Val d’Isere – Tignes ski area is not only legendary because of its exceptional setting. Furthermore, it’s also famous because it is a place that springs ski legends. At the Winter Olympics in 1968, the resort watched the first stars who had grown up on its pistes. The Goitschel sisters and Jean-Claude Killy emerged as champions.
