There is so much to love about Val d’Isère from husky-sledding for the kids to skiing for the parents
Posted: 5 August 2011
Where? A pretty village high in the French Alps.
Why go there? Linked to neighbouring Tignes, it forms the Espace Killy area with over 300km of pistes and is one of the best ski areas in the world.
Children will love... Take your pick – whether it’s husky-sledding or simply building a snowman. For skiing, Oxygène (www.oxygene-ski.com) is known for its really fun and safe lessons for children.
Parents will love... The variety of skiing on offer: from beginner runs to off-piste action. Away from the slopes, The Savoie hotel has oenology (winemaking) courses so you can learn all about the great wine you will be enjoying in the moutainside restaurants.
Stay at… Grand Choucas – a chalet in the centre of Val d’Isère that sleeps up to eight with picture windows offering stunning views of the mountains. From £1,089 per person for seven nights. Visit www.vip-chalets.com
