Val d'Isère, located in the Tarentaise valley in the heart of the French Alps, enjoys an international reputation. Considered one of the most prestigious ski resorts in the Alps, the village nestles at an altitude of 1850 m in the heart of the mountains (Bellevarde, Solaise and other massifs including Pissaillas). The charm of this village lies in its authentic, warm Savoyard architecture, with its mix of modern and traditional buildings. The historic center and main street are the hub of Val d'Isère life, with a concentration of stores and boutiques. Enjoy the natural setting of the Vanoise National Park in both winter and summer; in summer, the hiking trails will take you close to exceptional flora and fauna. The natural wealth of flora and fauna, glaciers, lakes, torrents and rivers means you can enjoy a multitude of activities including hiking, mountain biking, climbing and fishing. Val d'Isère is also an ideal stopover on the Grandes Alpes route, and for crossing the Iseran pass whether by bike, motorcycle or car.
