Where To Stay In Val d'Isere

09/07/2024 | Kim

Finding the best place to stay is always a little worrying when visiting a resort for the first time. Having lived in Val d’Isère since 1999, I like to think I know it pretty well. I’ve put below some of the main areas to stay and my thoughts on each. These are just a few suggestions, although we do have many more on our website. Hopefully this will help you make that important decision. You can also pop me an email or call for any advice.

Good to know: The ski buses in Val d’Isère are terrific, free and run through to 2am.

Resort centre

The main hub of the resort. The best area here is Val Village in the old town which I highly recommend. It’s right on the doorstep for the snow front plus the main bars & restaurants, with some good value apartments. There is also a good selection of apartments & chalets on the main street.


Self catered:

Rond Point des Pistes/Legettaz

Having lived at the Rond Point for 7 years I am rather biased. Most apartments are ski in/out to the main lifts and a short, pretty walk across the pistes brings you to the resort centre. Higher up in Legettaz is the resort’s Club Med resort and a good selection of catered & self catered chalet options for all budgets.

Self Catered:

La Daille

A totally underrated area and also a little cheaper than the resort centre, la Daille is just a 15 minute walk or a short bus ride to the centre. Many apartments and chalets are ski in/out with terrific views. The main telecabine will quickly whisk you up to the Bellevarde ski area and the link to Tignes. For après lovers, the Folie Douce is at the top of the telecabine and the famous Rosée Blanche is in la Daille for an après beer.


Self catered:

Le Fornet

Loved by ski purists, le Fornet is the resorts quietest area. There is just the one day restaurant but the resort bus will regularly take you to Val d’Isère centre in just 10 minutes.


Self catered:

Other areas

The list above is not exhaustive with le Cret, Joseray, Chatelard, Laisinant, les Carats also offering many accommodation options. The Petit Alaska area on the back road is also expanding and offers a quality choice of apartments and chalets just 400m from the slopes and 5 minutes’ walk to the centre.

Contact Simply Val d’Isere to book any of the above chalets or indeed any other accommodation option in the resort.
