Val d’isere is incredibly beautiful. Once an old farming village and now a modern ski resort, it still maintains some of its traditional mountain village ambiences, particularly in the Val d’Isere old town with its wooden-clad chalets and stone buildings.

Widely regarded as one of the best resorts in Europe, Val d’isere’s reputation comes from a culmination of its fantastic high-altitude slopes, excellent accommodation options, world-class facilities and general services and amenities across the resort. La Daille and Le Fornet on either side of it flank Val d’Isere’s centre. These three hamlets make up the resort and each offers a unique and different experience to the other.

Val d'Isère in a Nutshell

Val d’Isere is a high rollers’ resorts with a big time après ski and ski area fit for a king; people who go to Val d’Isere don’t mess around, and it’s a given that you ride hard and party hard in France’s premier resort. A common concern that comes with this resort is the price tag but by coming with NUCO you will certainly be pleasantly surprised by what we can offer.

It’s a picturesque resort and walking the high street will make you feel like you’re in a real traditional ski town rather than a purpose built ski resort. Known for it’s challenging terrain Val d’Isere provides just as well for first-timers and beginners. The beginner area is up high on the mountain at 2560m giving a sense of serious altitude that most learning slopes can’t match. NUCO are lucky to have grown for Val d’Isere routes and can’t wait to spread that love to everyone we can.

Places To Stay in Val d'Isère

There is a bit of a stigma around Val d’Isere of being an overly expensive resort, we’re giving this rumour the boot. Sure, we can find you a budget residence that provides just the necessities you require, but that’s not all we mean. Even if you’re looking for an accommodation that gives you more comfort, or maybe you want to go the whole way and get spa facilities too.

We know where to look to make sure you’ve got a place to stay that doesn’t break the bank. A lot of buildings require a bit of a walk to the lifts but there are regular shuttle buses to keep the ski-boot trekking to a minimum.

Val d'Isère Best Bits

Hit the 4 corners of the Espace Killy

The 300km of piste that interlink the resorts of Val d’Isere and Tignes have countless hidden gems to be discovered. So maximise your chances of finding something no ones seen before by stretching the ski area to it’s limits! Looking at the piste map the four corners are La Fornet & the Val d’Isere Glacier to the left and Les-Brévières & the Grande Motte Glacier on the Tignes side. Once you’ve made it to each of these points you can really say you’ve skied the Espace Killy. Do it all in one day and you’re super human!

Become an Olympian

The Face de Bellevarde was host to the Olympic downhill way back in 1992. One of the more challenging black in the resort what better way to test your mettle than by challenging yourself to getting down Le Face just at so many professional skiers have done in the past, though you might not match their speeds you’ll certainly get the same sense of accomplishment if you emerge unscathed.

Discover the Lost Valley

Despite not being quite as much of a secret as it’s name might suggest after Léo Taillefer flew down it in 2015 winning GoPro Line of the Winter, “Vallee Perdue” is Val d’Isere’s worst kept secret. Easily accessed from just below the Tommeuses chairlift you dip off the edge of pisted terrain to find yourself in what feels like a gully all of your own. At points this canyon can get very narrow so you’ll want to take it slow. It spits you out just above La Daille, so it may be a great time to grab a lunch break!

  • La Folie Douce offers a diverse mix of cabaret, live DJs, wild dancing and strong drinks ̶ why change a winning blend that’s been charming people for decades?

  • The Blue Note Bar is located opposite ESF Ski School, next to Hotel Ormelune and it’s an awesome place for après-ski. Their jazz and funk playlist is absolutely ace and makes a welcome change from some of the endless Europop you’ll hear at some rival resorts, plus they serve delicious alcoholic hot chocolate!

  • Doudoune Club has been a fixture on the Val après scene since 2008 and over the years it’s welcomed world-class DJs like Pete Tong, David Guetta and Roger Sanchez for some of the biggest club nights the resort has ever seen. Open from midnight to 5am, this is definitely the place to let your hair down and lose yourself in music.

Restaurants in Val d'Isère

Le 1789

It's so good we almost didn't want to tell you about it because it's our absolute favourite place to eat in Val d'Isère! It's not overly decorated so doesn't look luxurious, it isn't very big so can't hold a huge number of people, they are always full and it's very hard to get a table but trust us, it is 100% worth persisting! The family-run restaurant serves up some delicious food, meat and cheese feature heavily but they can provide some veggie options (at the chef's discretion!). Our advice is to book at the start of the week!

Arctic Cafe

Cool juice bar serving great coffee, mouth-watering juices and awesome health food! You wonder why it's taken so long for this kind of place to open in the mountains!
