Part of the Val d’Isère-Tignes ski area in the French Alps, wide nursery slopes and fantastic off-snow activities are just the beginning of Val d’Isere’s charm.
Just two and a half hours from Geneva, Val d’Isère has something for everyone with easy slopes for kids and testing intermediate and steep terrain. The resort, the only one in France with a charming village at 1850 metres, links up with neighbouring Tignes to offer 300 kilometres of terrain, serviced by 75 lifts.
Families are very well looked after with accommodation in hotels, chalets or apartments. There are fun beginner areas for kids, and families can save by purchasing a family lift pass. Wander around the beautiful old village, and off the ski slopes, try ice climbing, ice skating or dog sledding. But if we haven’t convinced you yet, here are six reasons why families should add this destination to the bucket list.
