Buying Experts for Luxury Property in Val d'Isere
The Alpine Specialist guide to Val D'Isere, France
The ski resort
Val d'Isère's combination of excellent skiing, luxury hotels, good restaurants and lively nightlife has long ensured its status as the number one ski destination in France for British skiers and snowboarders. One of the most exclusive ski destinations in the European Alps, Val d’Isère’s village centre is an attractive mix of original stone buildings and newer wooden developments. The resort now stretches from the modern La Daille up to the small, pretty hamlets of Le Laisanat and Le Fornet.
Skiing in Val D'Isere
Val d’Isère shares the Espace Killy, France’s third largest ski area, with the nearby ski resort of Tignes. There are pistes for every level and the varied terrain includes a good snowpark and an Olympic downhill black run. Glaciers, a number of north-facing slopes and a high overall altitude make Val d’Isère a good bet for reliable snowfall. The off-piste is well served by the lift system with vertical descents that rank among the most challenging in the world.
Summer in Val D'Isere
Val d’Isère's short summer season is packed with activities that include rafting, canyoning, fishing and walking. The French ski resort is one of the few to still offer summer skiing: this is also possible in nearby Tignes.
Buying Luxury Property For Sale in Val d'Isere
Val d'Isère is one of the most popular French ski resorts with foreigners looking to buy a mountain property. Luxury chalet prices in the village centre or with ski-in/ski-out access are among the highest in the Alps and have almost doubled in the last 5 years. Some buyers prefer the quieter charms of Sainte Foy, a 30 minute drive from Val d’Isère located on the road to Bourg St Maurice.
