5 Reasons why you will LOVE Val d’Isère
Val d’Isère is arguably one of the most popular ski resorts in Europe and here is why…
1. Amazing skiing
It goes without saying, but the skiing is pretty awesome. Although Val d’Isère is known for being a technically difficult ski resort, there are many pistes that are easy flowing blues and greens that you can’t help but enjoy. In particular, Edelweiss on the Fornet side of the resort is beautiful and you can stop at the restaurant on the way down, to bask in the sunshine whilst eating one of the delicious goats cheese and honey bruschetta.

2. Tourist activities and markets
Finally, there is an incredible range of shops and tourist activities that are held weekly. Val d’Isère often close the main high street to host light shows and give out complimentary Vin Chaud, pretty nice huh? It’s easy to spend hours trawling through the ski shops, trying on the beautiful clothing and top of the range equipment. There is also a weekly Monday market held in the old town, where they sell anything from cheese (of course), meats, furs, clothing and more. I challenge anyone to get bored in this amazing metropolis in the snowy Alps!
3. The community & local restuarants
The locals form an instrumental part of the resort for guests and workers alike! This season we fell in love with Fabian and his mother who run the popular French restaurant, La Gourmandine. The food is incredible, particularly the foie gras burgers (YUM). They also, in my humble opinion, serve the best hot chocolate in the resort. Situated next to the Oympique and Solaise lift, the restaurant is in the ideal location to simply pop by for a drink or two, which normally leads to tartiflette and fondue (it even rhymes!).
